December Match Report
The December Long-Range match was fantastic. Thank you to all the shooters who braved the cold temperatures and attended the match. There were 9 shooters at the match, 8 of which were Palmetto Gun Club members and one shooter came out for is FIRST F-Class match ever. The weather held out and the rain stopped and the temperatures were darn cold but the shooting was HOT! Several new club records were set. Tie for single target record at 800 for F-T/R was shot. 200 -15X shot by both Greg Chapa and Charlie Cheatham in the same relay! Then Greg Chapa set a new 3 target aggregate with his 595 34X. Great shooting by all and congratulations to the new club record holders!
