Default 8ga Results for the VC

We had a great time on Friday shooting the 5 stand at very long and fast targets. Mike Koneski won the event shooting an excellent 18/25. Mike was shooting a Parker GH. Second was Ken Georgi with 17/25 shooting a English boxlock. Third was Daniel Bawell shooting a Parker TL O grade with a 14/25. Three gentleman shot a 13/25, Mike Smith, Craig Larter and David deFernelmont. Other participants were Rick Simmonds, Craig Thompson and Stan Hoover.
Two new first time 8ga shooters were Daniel Bawell and Jeff Stegmeier. We had a total of 10 shooters. Thanks all for participating it was big fun. I look forward to seeing everyone at the Southern.

Thanks Stan. No lie, that was a tough 5-Stand! I think out of the 7 or 8 traps there was only one target that was inside of 40 yards.

The distance didnít bother me as much as not being able to pick some of them up quickly

Most shooters donít do well with distance. I had to laugh at the delay from ďboomĒ to break on all but one target, that incoming looper from the base of that right tower.

Just to let you guys know that I didn't set the targets. #1 and #3 were ridiculous. If this event is held there next year things will be different. Either way, great shooting guys and thanks for your efforts.

But at least you could see it. Shouldn't be a problem with 34" barrels.

Correct Daryl, you could see that one at 70 yards just as it cleared the tree tops
