IDPA Welcomes Latest Club, New York’s Pathfinder Fish & Game BERRYVILLE, Ark. – The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA), the fastest growing shooting sport in the nation, has added a new club, Pathfinder Fish & Game located in Fulton, N.Y. Pathfinder Fish & Game is well known among Mid-Atlantic area competition shooters who have frequented the club to compete in the variety of shooting sports it hosts. Adding the very popular IDPA expands the club’s offerings to better support the local shooting community. “Pathfinder Fish & Game is excited to add another great recreational shooting activity for our members,” said Bob Russell, the club’s IDPA contact. “With the rapid growth of IDPA, coupled with the increase in the number of concealed carry permit holders, there is a real need for a defensive-style competitive shooting format for those looking to test their skills.” The club is training and certifying IDPA sanctioned safety officers to run matches which will be hosted every second Sunday of the month, April through November.

USAMU Team Shoots Record 800-57X at 1000 Yards

USAMU Team Shoots Record 800-57X at 1000 Yards – Amazing. Spectacular. Stunning. Awe-inspiring. You choose the superlatives — but this is one team shooting performance that will long be celebrated. Competing in the Herrick Trophy 1000-yard Team Match at the Long Range National Championships, the USAMU Praslick 4-member squad turned in a performance for the ages, posting a record-breaking 800-57X score. That means that every one of the four soldiers shot a perfect 200 at 1000 yards. And the X-count was impressive as well. Recently-crowned 2013 National High Power Champion SSG Brandon Green nailed 15 Xs, as did his USAMU team-mate SGT Amanda Elsenboss. Nearly as good, SSG Ty Cooper had 14 Xs to go with his 200 score, while SSG Shane Barnhart notched 13 Xs.  The team’s combined 800-57X score is a new National Record. We commend all four shooters and their wind coach SFC Emil Praslick III. Well-done Lady and Gentlemen. This was a truly superior display of long-range marksmanship! As one fellow shooter observed at Camp Perry: “This is one record that will likely stand for a long, long...

Galway junior rifle team prepares to compete nationally

Galway junior rifle team prepares to compete nationally – “It takes an incredible amount of self discipline and concentration to really get good at it,” said Coach Chuck Boykin.  The teens on the junior rifle team range in age from 12 to 18.  “Shooting is a very mental sport. It’s 90 percent mental, ten percent physical,” Logan Ogden said.  It’s that intense focus that has Logan Ogden, 14, and Breanna Flint, 18, preparing for the National Junior Olympics in Colorado Springs this week.  “One target has ten bulls and you can get ten points on each bull. You want to try to hit that little tiny dot in the center to get a ten,” Ogden said.  Last year’s Junior Olympics winner in Logan’s category received a score of 576 out of...
