2016 National Matches, Camp Perry, OH

Three Coyote Point pistol instructors (Mike, Eugene, Jonathan) and coach (Kendis) returned from competition at the National Pistol Matches in July. The National Matches have taken place at Camp Perry OH since 1907, and is considered the “World Series of Shooting Sports”. Our instructors did well competing against 680 competitors from across the nation in tough conditions as the range is uncovered and open to the elements. The week long match experienced conditions with temperatures in the 90s, high humidity, and winds gusting up to 35 mph shooting at targets at 50 and 25 yards one handed. Competition builds skills in sight picture and trigger control amidst match pressure, wind, and heat. Special congratulations to Jonathan who also shot on the California State Pistol team and represented California well.
