Fifteen shooters exercised their trigger fingers in the early spring weather this past Saturday at Elk River Sportsman's club for the first local OTC match. Kevin Bangen was Top Gun defending his last year's State Championship win. He won using an AR-15 .223 match rifle, proving less is best. Threatening weather on Sunday reduced the turnout somewhat, but Omar Hamer turned in a fine score for the win.
This coming weekend traveling shooters will find their way to Eau Claire Rifle Club for a Mid Range match on Sat., and an 80 shot OTC Sunday. There are no local matches scheduled.
