A New Look in the Pits….
Many thanks to Gordy Mitchell and his team of engineers who have worked to shore up the walls of the pits, redo the grading and remove the boggy spots. GRRC’s pits are now secure and ready for action. Our members are the best.
Benchrest Record Set at GRRC
On August 19, 2012, Sally Bauer set a new International Benchrest Shooter’s record for 1000 yd. competition. Her score was 100- 5x with a 3.495” (pending) tie breaker group. It was shot at the Gopher Rifle and Revolver Club in Harris, MN.
At the end of Heavy Gun match #10, Sally was directed by Range Officer Gordy Mitchell to leave all of her equipment and rifle setting on her bench, while the other competitors were asked to “clear the benches.” Sally was perplexed by Mitchell’s direction, but he assured her “It’s a good thing.” Rumors swirled and Dave Holland was summoned to the pits. Dave had been informed by the pit crew that Sally had just shot a potential IBS record for either score or group, and they needed some official direction in the handling of the target. Dave and Gordy brought the target back to the scoring shed and had many people associated with the Club and a few well-respected competitors measure and sign the target. All agreed: Sally had just shot an IBS record. Sally’s rifle, Stars and Stripes, and equipment were measured and photographed just as she had used them in the shooting of the group. The target was then folded up and sent to the IBS for final measurement and verification.
GRRC joins the IBR community in congratulating Sally on this incredible achievement. Members, look in the BR menu for additional information about the making of Sally’s unique gun.
