Sammons was the first to dip under six inches with a 5.484 incher but Steve Dunn eventually eclipsed this with a 4.616 incher in his third Match. This not only secured small-group award but helped Steve to the Light Gun victory, just edging Phil Sammons into second place.


In Factory Sporter, Phil Gibbon and his 6.5-284 Savage cruised to an easy victory with an agg. that was good enough for fourth place in Light Gun Class. Phil’s excellent 8.5 inch group in Match 2 was the smallest FS group by far and in fact such were the conditions that only three Light Gun shooters bettered it.

Back bags are a bit like a snooker player’s cue to a benchrest shooter and when mine (which has accompanied me to Italy, New Zealand, America, Sweden, Spain & Austria) split, I was devastated – especially with the World Championships only a few weeks away. My bag was a Bald Eagle but they are no longer obtainable so I plumped for an Edgewood.


Edgewood bags are made in America by Jack Snyder www.edgebags.com and a visit to their website gave an eight-week lead time for a new bag plus shipping. However, an e-mail to Barbara informed me that they had some bags in stock and to cut a long story short, I had the bag in a couple of weeks. It’s a beautiful piece of leatherwork and it is now filled with heavy sand awaiting the new competition. Let’s hope it works.............


Forthcoming Events Our next 100/1000 yard benchrest shoots are on the weekend of 18/19th June but we have a ‘benchrest for score’ shoot on Saturday 4th June. As always, you can turn up on the day but e-mail vinceb@6ppc.fsnet.co.uk for more info.
