August Match Report

August Match Report

 

This past August Long-Range match was fantastic. Despite the rough August heat, humidity and boiling mirage, twenty-one shooters, including tow Palma shooters, came out to compete. While the temperatures continued to spike, shooters obtained some impressive scores and the range between top scores was only a couple of points. Thank you to all the shooters who braved the heat to come out and shot an amazing match.
