Most Successful Bullseye Clinic Yet!

The Bullseye Clinic conducted on March 24, 2016, was the most successful one yet because all seven participants qualified to shoot on the Bullseye Range!  Four shooters (Larry Conner, Skip Grandi, Ted Rich, and Peter Schulman) are WAC members and Skip and Peter are Range Officers.  The other three – Allyn Gifford, Joe Gifford, and John Steele – were not.  Everyone shot their own pistol except for Allyn who shot extremely well with “a loaner.”  Congratulations to all of them!
 
Better yet, Allyn and Joe Gifford and Peter Schulman have all participated in the club’s Bullseye Practice and Peter has participated in a SundayBullseye Match!

THIRD ANNUAL BULLSEYE CLINIC TO BE HELD SATURDAY MARCH 24

The Second Annual Clinic, conducted in March 2017, was a great success.  Several attendees “qualified” to shoot on the Bullseye Range, demonstrating an ability to keep all of their shots in the scoring rings, including Russ Pritchard, Jim McCready, Keith Arndt, Pat Damico, and Maria Damico.  Pat was a “ringer,” having had an NRA Bullseye classification since the 1970’s, but had not recently participated in bullseye activities at WAC.

Some of the action pistol shooters attending the clinic were overheard to say, “This is great stuff!  How come we never heard this before?” (Presumably referring to “trigger control”).

The third Clinic will be conducted on March 24, 2018.  It will meet in the classroom (Classroom South, behind the clubhouse) from 9:00 a.m. to noon.  Then dry firing and live firing will be conducted on the Multipurpose Range until 4:00 p.m.  There is no cost to participants.  We will be shooting only .22 caliber pistols (to make it quieter and easier to control recoil).
