Pistol Pop-up Match


Sincere apologies for the long delay in getting these pictures posted. - MEP

The day started out sunny and warm and while we had to dodge raindrops later in the afternoon it was still a fun day for the 137 shooters that came out to shoot 40 relays.

Well, there was a waiting line before sun up, as usual.
...and the line got longer as the morning wore on.
There's our little buddies!
Ready on the right!
Ready on the left!
Commence fire!
Like this shooter, you really should try this with a .22.
We still have the usual 1911s.
and unadorned wheelguns...
scoped wheelguns like this .44Mag.,
scoped 1911s,
and shooters bringing a combination to the table!
the General was back and having fun!
The shooters patiently waited for their relays to shoot.
One of our nation's finest tries his hand at the course.
The lovely Leah shows off the latest in holster fashion!
Get the problems with the Combat Commander fixed Gary?
The Chicago boys were back...
as was our stalwart Swiss paratrooper.
Again, it was family day at Camp Perry!
Don and Julie wait their turns on the line.
Don shows off his prowess with a wheel gun.
We had a lot of .22 shooters this spring!
Everyone has seen semi-autos with a scope mounted. Usually, the scope is mounted to the gun's frame.
One of the Chicago boys brought his Glock with an AimPoint Micro sight, but look closely...
Don't see a mount to the frame do you?
His AimPoint is mounted directly to the slide! One would think that mounting a scope directly to the slide would pound the snot out of it. Steve said he has run 1,000+ through the Glock so far and the scope is still dead on!
Did the Woodsman work any better for you Gary?
This shooter was ready for bear!
Some of the shooters catch some rays while waiting to shoot.
Let's get those doubles.
Despite the wind and the raindrops in the afternoon, the ladies had fun too!
OK, how fast can you do that reload?
Getting that P38 ready for D-Day?
And finally, I got to shoot!
We appreciate your patience during the heavy turnouts for these shoots and thank you for your patience while waiting to register and shoot. It's you the shooters who make these matches successful to help the Friends of Camp Perry succeed in their mission!
