The Orofino/Pierce Gun Club had their first 22LR rifle competition on Saturday, Aug. 22. More than a dozen shooters tested their skills. Everyone had a good time and are looking forward to next spring when the competitions will be held once a month through the summer.
Five shooters each earned perfect scores of 250. The ties were broken by counting the x-ring shot, a 1/16” dot in the center of the target.
25 yards open class:
First: Chris Kimberlin-250-16x.
First-David Powers-250-13x; Second was a tie: Jack Kelly-250-11x; Chris Anderson-250-14x.

50 yards-Base Class:

The Club also had a fun shoot at 120 yards, shooting at a 4 inch metal disc. After a lot of shooting, Todd Bohnet, from Wilson Creek, WA, was successful and won.
A big thank you to the people that helped make this competition happen.
In mid-September, the gun club will be open to the public for use to site-in hunting rifles. Details forthcoming.
