November Match Report

This past Mid-Range match was fantastic. Thank you to all the shooters who attended the match. The match had a solid turnout and ended with 16 shooters, 12 of which were Palmetto Gun Club members. The sun was out and the wind was not too bad, however, the temperate was cold in the morning. As the sun climbed higher, the temperature and the scores went up.  It was overall a great day of shooting!

October 2017 South Carolina State Mid- Range F-Class Championship Match Report

October 2017 South Carolina State Mid- Range F-Class Championship Match Report

 

This past weekend Palmetto Gun Club hosted the South Carolina State Mid-Range Championship.  A big thanks to all the shooters that came out and shot and to all the Volunteers that came out to help.  We had 18 shooters that came out for the two days of shooting and were well rewarded with some good weather and great scores. The weather held onto a bit of that summer time feel, with the afternoons very warm while the morning starting out with a chill in the low 60s.  The winds stayed lite but it didn’t take much of a breeze to move the shots and the lite winds that did blow caught some shooters off guard.  The mirage at Palmetto Gun Club did not make things easy once the morning chill was cooked off, and left some shooters second guessing on when to pull the trigger.  On Saturday the shooters competed at 300 yards in the morning and at 600 in the afternoon.  On Sunday the shooters shot at 500 yards off the grass with no cover.  Check out some Photos at https://charlestonlongrange.com/match-albums/  or https://imgur.com/a/KUSrL (Thanks to Robert Herstine for some of these photos).

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.
