The first shooter to clear their rack wins the run.  In the first segment of the competition, you shoot the best 2 of 3 runs.  In the latter segment of the match, it's a sudden death elimination.

Match Results


The July 28th Pistol Plate Match marked the First Anniversary of the event with the best attendance of any match since the event's inception.  There were 21 entrants in the three classes available with two of the shooters coming from the Ogden area.

One big factor, which added measurably to the enjoyment of all participants, was the new canopy over the training bay where the match is held.  Shade was definitely a big factor in adding to the comfort of all competitors.  Many thanks to the board for this major improvement.

Ten shooters faced off in the semi-auto class, while eight entered the rim fire shoot.  Three shooters went head to head in the revolver division.

Chris Irvine started his day by clearing two racks of plates, in qualifications, in just under 13.5 seconds to be the top seed in the semi auto class.  He survived a couple of very close matches to take the Winner's Bracket.  First time participant Don Christensen fought his way back through the Loser's Bracket to face Bruce Furr in that bracket final.  Bruce prevailed over Don and went on the face Chris in the Semi Auto Class Final.  Chris claimed the class title.

In Rim Fire, Bruce Furr won the Winner's Bracket.  Tyler Bingham bested the rest in the Loser's Bracket and faced Bruce in the Class final.  Bruce took the Rim Fire Class Title.

The Revolver Class boiled down to a shootout between Tyler Bingham and Bruce Furr.  Bruce prevailed in Revolver to face Chris for the Overall Match Winner.

In the Overall Match Final, with Bruce having won two classes, Bruce chose to face off with Chris shooting his semi auto rim fire.  The match was a straight heads up six plate run, best of three.  It took three runs to see Chris squeak out a win.  Bruce then took his option to face Chris going Revolver against Semi-Auto.  Bruce loaded his seven shot revolver and Chris loaded seven in his auto.  Bruce had to hit four plates and the popper while Chris had to hit 6 plates and the popper.  The match used all three runs and was very close.  Chris managed to take the win.

Those participating in the event were: Don Christensen, Tony Vanderheyden, Bob Sanders, Tyler Bingham, Chris Irvine, Bruce Furr, Larry Brulen, Julie Brulen, Nannette Petrocelli, Les Covey, Bruce Christensen and Ron Majury.

 "Despite hot, hot temps, we had a good turnout for the first Pistol Plate Match Event. The shooting was pretty "hot", too... although a new experience for a lot of the shooters, most got the hang of it really quick and the competition was very close at times and lots of fun to watch. Next regularly scheduled shoot is July 22 and every 4th Saturday from then on"        Check Out The Video Below
