2018 Pistol Shoot event scheduled for July 14
May 1, 2018
The Young Leader Committee of the White County Farm Bureau is pleased to sponsor the 8th Annual Young Leader Pistol Shoot. The event will be held on Saturday, July 14, 2018 at the Carmi Rifle Club in Carmi, IL. This year’s event will feature two competitions, a “Speed Steel Competition” and a “Display of Marksmanship”. Event registration begins at 8:30 am, with competition set to begin at 9:00 am.
There are two competitions in this event…
SPEED STEEL COMPETITION
This steel target competition will consist of 5 stations, 5 relays, with 5 targets at each station (minimum of 125 shots). Each round will be electronically timed. The event will include two age classes… an adult class, and a youth class for shooters aged 16 years and younger.
DISPLAY OF MARKSMANSHIP
The marksmanship competition will be the best of 10 shots at a distant target of 50 feet; with accuracy the deciding factor, not speed. All shooters will compete in one class for the Marksmanship Competition.
* The minimum age for shooters is 12 years old. Any shooter age 16 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.
Each shooter will be put in a drawing for a Ruger Mark IV .22 target pistol. The pistol was donated by The Gun Room at Indian Creek RV in Norris City. The top shooter in each class (adult and youth) for each competition will receive an additional 5 chances in the drawing; the 2nd place shooter in each class will receive an additional 3 chances; and the 3rd place shooter in each class will receive one additional chance. The top shooter in each event will also receive a brick of .22 ammunition (one winner for speed, one winner for marksmanship).
Shooters will need to furnish their own guns, ammunition, hearing protection, and eye protection. Only .22 caliber pistols are allowed to be used in this competition. In order to have ammunition ready while competing, it is recommended that you bring multiple clips for your gun. A small amount of .22 ammunition will be available for sale at our cost.
Registration is $25 per shooter if registered before July 1. After July 1, registration will be $35 per shooter. Registration includes lunch (those attending but not shooting will need to pay $8 for lunch). We hope to see you at this year’s Young Leader Pistol Shoot event!
