Steve Murphy won the LV100 Saturday morning with a .2374 agg followed by Gary Bristow in second and Brad Calhoun in third. Dickie Pustejovsky shot the small group for the yardage, al118. Saturday afternoon, Larry Baggett won the HV100 with a .2972. New

Sunday morning, Gary Bristow easily won the HV200 with a .2069 agg followed by Steve Murphy in second, .2405 and Frank Wilson in third, .2547 with Gary Bristow shooting the small group, a nice .266. Sunday afternoon got a little rough however; Charles Huckeba did not

seem to notice and won the LV200 with the only aggregate in the twos; a .2990. Mike Conr was second, .3368 and Larry Baggett rounded out the top three, .3748. Kelly Morman shot the small group for the yardage, a tiny .271. Charles Huckeba won the LV Grand with a .2877 followed by Steve Murphy .3133, Mike Conry, .3181, Gary Bristow, .3285 and Larry Baggett .3304. Steve Murphy won the HV Grand shooting a .2773 followed by Mike Conry, .2871, Tim Oltersdorf, .2895, Larry Baggett .2919 and Gary Bristow .2941. When all was said and done, Steve Murphy won the Two-Gun for the second year in a row with a .2953 aggregate. Mike Conry was second .3026, Charles Huckeba was third .3035, Larry Baggett was fourth .3112 and Gary Bristow was fifth .3113. Many thanks go out to all that helped with the match; John Krenik for calling the match, his wife, Gloria and their two daughters for changing targets incredibly well (yes, they really are that good!), Pam for scoring, all the club members that helped behind the scenes and all the shooters that came from Lubbock that so ably helped set the target frames and also helped to take them down after the match was over. Thanks again all of you! --Mike Conry

Todd Tyler Torches the Firewalker & Rod Brown Wins the Northern Colorado 4Gun

September 7-8, 2013

Howdy shooters to our final and biggest match of the year, the 26th Annual Firewalker! Wile E Coyote reporting. Northern Colorado Benchrest Shooters was close to a full house with 44 attending competitors all vying for the 1st place positions of our 3rd and 4th legs of the 4-Gun championship. The loading barn was full to the brim with the sweet smell of cleaning solution and raw gun powder. Norm Wills was present with his trailer loaded with goods for needy attendees. Campers surrounded the loading barn ranging from overheads to massive RVs. Some shooters even loaded and cleaned from the comforts of their travel homes. Excitement was in the air. Tina and Kathleen were primed and prepped. Casey

and Theo had all the targets sorted and labeled. Bud made sure all shooters were on the correct benches and properly registered. We began shooting at 9:00am sharp. Bud ran a tight ship to keep our 3 relays running smoothly so everyone could enjoy the evening festivities. Beautiful Colorado weather started everyone off and blinded some of us as the sun rose (yeah that was my excuse for not winning; it was the sun’s fault, I’m sure of it). Light Varmint at 100 yards was dominated by Larry Baggett sporting a 0.1928 score. Woohoo Larry! Can I get a round of applause for the small group winner, Tom Evans with a tiny group of 0.1150. With three running relays and a lighting quick target crew, clocked at a record five minutes, we soon came upon the lunching hour. Everyone enjoyed a nice lunch mixed with fingers tasting of Butch’s bore shine between relays. Not one target came off the board, nor did any get stolen by stray wind twisters. The target frames were moved and shooting commenced. I did manage to speak with a couple shooters in between relays. This was LuAnn’s first Firewalker as a competitor. She informed me she’d been looking forward to this for several weeks. She was also very thrilled to be shooting with her father, Dean Thomas, and husband, Jason Dill for the first time ever together. I interviewed our target crew, Theo and Casey. I’m sad to say they’ll be leaving us next year. One is off to college (he may be able to join us depending

where school is located) and the other is off to the Navy. They are getting a good man. I made my way around to say hello to our lady shooters all of whom are wicked with their bench guns. So good to see you Muriel, Janet, Betty, and LuAnn; we need more of you. All of the usual shooters were present as well as our Wyoming buddies and everyone else I’d love to see more often. The shooters enjoy the level playing field. When you share a bench with others on different relays the constant moving of your front and rear rests can play with one’s nerves. But rest assured, the shooter at the bench next to you is going through the same thing. Combine that with rotating eight benches and those with cool heads really shine. Thrilling! Although no screamers were shot in the first 100 yards of the weekend, several shooters agreed they did scream when that one bullet decided to jump out of the tiny little group they were making. After everyone was good and discombobulated and target frames were moved to 200 yards the Firewalker kept on burning. Each relay went to the line and did their very best. Todd Tyler, whom I understand was on the World Team, won the 1st place position for Light Varmint 200 yards. His steaming 0.1999 score was just too small to beat. Mr. Tyler also took home the Roadrunner Small Group trophy with his 0.2000 group shot on the 3rd record target. This group and his group of 0.2140 shot on the 2nd record target were the only screamers shot in the Light Varmint 200 yards. Way to go Todd, Serious coyote shooting! Close to the end of relay 1 the grill was fired up and steaks were sizzling thanks to Roger Tillery. Shooters as well as their spouses/guests were invited to bring a dish to the steak dinner. Never a requirement, but you’re always welcome to bring your favorite dish to share. After 3rd relay completed shooting for the day everyone moseyed to the classroom where din-


December, 2013 Precision Rifleman ner was served. Steaks are provided by Top Notch owned by Randy and Laurie Stevens from Pierce, Colorado. Steaks are available year round so give them a buzz if you want Firewalker deliciousness more than once a year. Along with steaks, salad, baked potatoes, cowboy cooked beans, pies, and cakes no coyote can go hungry. Many thanks to Joyce Carpenter, Judy Schalles, Candy Yoder and every other cooker, baker, decorator, or cleaner involved in the food preparation and serving. It couldn’t be done without you. Shooters and guests enjoyed a calm, warm evening dinner chatting and retelling the day’s crashes and wins. Many thanks to Jason Dill and Dean Thomas for power washing the eating and shooting areas. Although shooters are used to funky tastes with their food, a dinner is better minus dirt and for a change, the flies were not trying to carry us off. Slowly everyone mingled back to their campers or the loading barn to prepare for the coming day. Laughter and chatter could be heard all around as the sun went down on one of the best shooting days I’ve attended. Sunday morning promised everyone a sunny warm day for Heavy Varmint shooting. Everybody was refreshed and ready to go. Relay 1 lined up at the benches. Bud gave the “Commence Fire” command and it was on. Rodney Brown was in it to win it. He took 1st place with a 0.2013 score at 200 yards. Cliff McNairy enjoyed the presence of a Roadrunner trophy on his trip home for his small group score of 0.2520. Excellent shooting guys! The final match of the Firewalker, Heavy Varmint at 100 yards was won by John Reiss with a scorching score of 0.1986. Small group was earned by one Larry White with a 0.108. You guys are smoking! As the weekend and final match of the year wound down, Tina and Kathleen went to work on the results and determining the big winners. Bud laid the trophies out for all to ponder over and shooters hovered over the Wailing Wall while packing their equipment for the trip home. The once colorful sea of flags slowly disappeared. After a few short minutes the results were in. The Grand Agg winner of the Light Varmint 100/200 yard matches with a

Front Row: Michael Strange, Rodney Brown Cliff McNairy & Brandon McNairy score of 0.2092 went to Todd Tyler. The Grand Agg winner of the Heavy Varmint 100/200 yard matches with a score of 0.2281 went to Cliff McNairy. Awesome shooting coyotes! The traveling Firewalker trophy was awarded to Todd Tyler and his score of 0.2204 for Light and Heavy Varmint 100/200 combined matches. What a win Todd! Excellent shooting! Be sure to congratulate Todd if you see him on winning our 26th Annual Firewalker. We aren’t done yet, oh no. The Firewalker isn’t just our biggest match of the year it’s also the final legs of the Northern Colorado 3-Gun and 4-Gun. If you’ll remember these take place at different times during the year. The 3-Gun consists of Sporter, Light, and Heavy Varmint. I’m pleased to announce Rodney Brown as the 3-Gun winner with his score of 0.3176. Way to go Rodney! Our final trophy of the year goes to our 4-Gun winner. This hot dog shooter earned his trophy by doing his very best

in the Sporter, Light, Heavy, and Unlimited 10-shot Varmint matches. The 4-Gun honors go to Rodney Brown with a score of 0.3153. Can I get a “yahoo” for Rodney! It’s been a great year with great people and memorable times. If you weren’t there with us, put it on your calendar to join us next year. I promise you an enjoyable shoot and good food. To Bud, Tina, Kathleen, Theo, Casey, Dean, Jason, and Roger I give you the Wile E Coyote “Genius” award. You all rock!

Larry Baggett Lands the 2Gun Win at Land’s End Grand Junction, CO

Congratulations to Texan Larry Baggett on winning the Purple Haze. The Grand Junction folks are a great bunch of people, as Todd Tyler and Larry Baggett found out as the awesome twosome traveled from one match to the next on a grand Mid-Continent tour. Wherever they shot, somebody took home wood. Aaron French shares that the two colorado clubs; Ault and Land’s End are great fun. If you like to laugh, have fun and shoot with some great competitors, than you should give these ranges a try. The Land’s End gang heads up to Reeder Mesa Winery for a great cook out after the registered matches. The food is great. The wine is great. The camaraderie is great. I’m sure Todd and Larry would agree. Congratulations to Larry. Purple Haze is the last match of the season and concludes the 3-Gun and 4-Gun Championships.

Krupa Wins WWCCA’s Fall Classic October 6-7, 2013 Well it rained, and I mean rain Friday night before the match, but Saturday became a usual Michigan fall day, except it was warm. We got a little sunshine (almost a full minute of it) so things were good. How would you like to be shooting at a target that is about 3 feet high and wild turkeys walking underneath the targets paying no heed to the bullets flying overhead? This happened in the middle of a match and the way everyone was shooting, the turkeys were safe. Anyway, about seventeen shooters showed up to do battle with each other and on Saturday. Melvyn Newransky showed everyone the way home with a LV100 agg of .1816; the only one of 3 teen aggregates for the day. He was followed by Jack Neary .2096 and Joey Krupa .2150. In HV100, Jerry Jarett was there with the 2nd teen agg of the day, a nice .1766, followed by Joey Krupa at .1852 and third was Peter Smith at .2238. It rained throughout the night and pretty well most of the day, but that did not stop Rob MacLennan from shooting a .2138 agg followed by fellow Canadian Peter Smith at .2230. Margaret Jarrett was third at .2309. I give Margaret special consideration. Up until the last target she had the agg won with a .448, .363, .322, .382 and the last target took her to third. I believe special congratulations are in order for Margaret. In the LV200 the old pros took over with Jack Neary first with a .2006, Joey Krupa took second with a .2249 and the “Dominator” Dominic Grunas third with a .2318. The 2 Gun went to Joey Krupa, Jerry Jarett, and Jack Neary. We will see you all next year and until then have a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

The first leg was held at Brock’s Gap Training Center in Birmingham, Alabama back in June. When these two match results are combined, you have the results for the Iron Man 4-Gun competition. Following are the results first from the Unaka 200-yard match and then the results of the Iron Man competition which includes Brock’s Gap 100 yard 4-Gun. As you can see, Bart Sauter was the winner and can claim the title of 2013 Iron Man. In addition to his Hall of Fame Entrance and great shooting at the Group Nationals in Fairchance, I’d say Bart’s had quite a year! Congratulations to Bart and thank you to everyone for attending.

Concentricity Gauge This type of indicator was designed specifically for checking rotating diameters and in fact is exactly the type of gauge used in the machining industry for decades to measure run out; the very thing that we as hand loaders are striving to minimize or eliminate. At 21 Century Shooting it is our goal to modernize an industry that has seen little change over the years. Our concentricity gauge is a perfect example. st

Van Dyne’s Varmint-For Score Match by Dick Baier September 14, 2013

The last match of the 2013 season was shot at Van Dyne on September 14th. Twenty-five shooters showed up for our second VFS match with a number of new shooters which we are always glad to see. There were 16-250’s shot at 100 yards which let everyone know that the conditions were great. At 100 yards, Craig Nagel was up to his normal performance with a 250-24X. Great shooting Craig. Wade Hunnewell did his best to catch Craig but posted a 250-22X...just 2 points short at 100. Third place went to Jim Koffman with a 250-21X followed by Lee Keller with a 250-19X. The 100 was rounded out by Ron Bertrand with a 250-18X. The 200 yardage proved to be quite interesting as conditions managed to change quite often that afternoon. Only two 250-s were shot at 200 yards with Chad Schmidt shooting a 250-5X to finish in first place and Ron Bertrand with the other 250-2X finishing in second. Wade Hunnewell posted a 249-7X to take third and fourth was Paul ReName Jim Ramthum Ron Bertrand Rick Allen Richard Hunnewell Craig Nagel Chad Hilton Brian Abel Robert Sandretto Chad Schmidt Steve Call Paul Reindl Chuck Bindrich Bruce Hansen James Lederer Richard Frank Wade Hunnewell Harold Fredd Tom Shilka Jim Koffman Keith Reinhard Lee Keller Brian Miller Bill Koffman Steve Rosendale Jim Larson

Rounding out fourth and fifth were Paul Reidel with a 499-17X and fifth was Craig Nagel with a 497=31X.

Gibson & Perry Win Gulf Coast VFS Southwest Louisiana

The weather was really nice both days with variable winds from 3 to 5 mph at times coming from all directions due to the thunderstorms passing through the area. There was very little mirage and the temperature stayed in the low 80’s making the match days some of the nicest here this summer. At the Hunter match on Saturday, Ray Perry won the 100 yd match shooting a 249-11x. Mike Guillot won the 200 yd match by shooting a 247. Ray won the Grand with a score of 495. Congratulations Ray and Mike. At the VFS match on Sunday, Lynn

Gibson took the 100 yd match with a perfect score of 250-25x. Lynn then proceeded to shoot a 250-9x at the 200 yd match to win first place clinching first place in the Grand. Kenny Kuperman also shot a 250-9x at the 200 but was beaten out of first place by Lynn, who shot the first X. Lynn’s targets have been submitted for a possible new world record of 500-34x. Congratulations to Lynn on the exceptional shooting. The results and pictures are on the following page. Thanks to everyone for attending and see you next year. --Wayne Bengston

Tom Evans Wins Butch Kimmel Memorial Labor Day Weekend Porcupine, South Dakota This match marks the first annual Butch Kimmel Memorial Shoot. August 31st was the LV100-200 and first day of the Butch Kimmel Memorial. September 1 was the HV 100-200 second day of the Butch Kimmel Memorial and the last leg of the NC Region 4 Gun. Tom Evans is the 2 gun winner for the weekend and winner of the first annual Butch Kimmel Memorial, Bud Schalles is the 3 gun winner for the year and Rodney Brown is the 4 gun winner. For the weekend we had head winds from the north and pleasant temperatures barely reaching into the 80s. By the 5th LV match at 100 yards the winds were picking up nicely and as we got into the 200 yard match we were getting winds approaching 30 mph. The 100 yard light varmint winner was Dean Parker whose 0.2388 was closely followed by Dave Tunbridge’s 0.2490. The 100 yard small group was a 0.094 screamer by Tom Evans. At 200 yards the shooting became much more of a challenge. Of the 80 groups fired by the 16 competitors only 30 were less than one inch. Rodney Brown won the light varmint 200 with a 0.4303 agg and Dave Tunbridge took second with the only other agg less than half an inch, a 0.4885. The small group was Bob Prather’s, magnificent for the conditions, 0.382. Rodney’s 200 yard win gave him the light varmint grand win with Dave Tunbridge second. Saturday evening we were treated to Don Deckert’s annual “Cream Can Stew” dinner. Sunday morning we shot the second leg of the Butch Kimmel Memorial and the last leg of the year’s 4 gun. We started with the heavy varmint 200 and it was evident that conditions had improved over Saturday’s since of the 80 groups only 6 one inch accidents occurred. Bud Schalles won the heavy varmint 200 with a 0.2387 agg over Darrel Phillips’ 0.2671. The small 200 yard group was Tom Evans’ 0.298.

Dean Thomas Wins at Northern Colorado

Written by LuAnn Dill

Northern Colorado Score Shooters L-R: Dean Thomas, Irv Sheldon, Phillip Sheldon, Ron Hensley, Bud Schalles Muriel Hensley. Kneeling: LuAnn Dill Greetings benchrest fans and shooters! Wile E Coyote here to bring you the goodies on Northern Colorado Benchrest Shooters August Hunter and Varmint for Score match. Ten shooters came out to shoot in the August heat. Two shooters for Hunter Class and the remainder for Varmint for Score. Sadly Dick McQuisten suffered gun trouble right off the bat and headed home to make repairs. He and Dean Thomas were all set to show up the Varmint shooters. Good thing Dean had a Varmint rifle with him; he joined the others in showing skill and prowess with their Varmint rifles. After a slight delay, all the attending coyotes sat down at the benches and begin the weekend shoot. The first match was 100 yards Varmint for Score. It was a neck-n-neck race for 1st place. The conditions were perfect allowing eight shooters to finish with a 250. Be sure to check out the scores, very impressive. However, John Ambler proved to be the best of the first match with a winning score of 250 20x. High X-count was also awarded to John. Way to go John! Conditions were so good lunch break was a bit shorter so everyone could continue out shining the sun. Once

again at the line we awaited Bud’s coveted words: “Commence fire”. Five targets later, Dean Thomas scooped up the win with a final score of 246 8x. Dean also won the high X-count for the 200 yard match. Great shooting Dean! You’re trusty reporter managed to pull off fifth place with a huge grin. At 8:00am Sunday morning all shooters once again took the line and did our best at 200 yards. Again conditions were in the benchrest shooter’s favor. Dean once again scooped up the 1st place trophy with a score of 249 3x. High X-count was awarded to Ron Hensley with 7x. Way to go Dean and Ron! The final match of the weekend was

100 yards and a new name appeared in the coveted 1st place spot. Our very own published author of two werewolf horror fiction novels, LuAnn Dill took the match with a final score of 250 18x. She also took the high X-count trophy. It wasn’t an easy win however, she had two shooters hot on her heels with 250 17x scores. But then heat of the moment competition is also good for a writer’s mind…keep’s ‘em on their toes. Please hold your applause; it’s time to honor our Grand Agg winners. The big winner for Saturday’s Varmint for Score was Dean Thomas with a final score of 496 23x. Sunday’s Varmint for Score big winner was awarded to Ron Hensley with a score of 498 24x. The 2-day 1st place winner went to Dean Thomas with a final agg of 993 39x. Hot dog fellas, that’s excellent shooting! Watch out though, the ladies are right on your tails. It was a great weekend of shooting and good times. Much laughter and hoots of joy were heard throughout the weekend. This coyote loves to shoot and loves to see you all come out; having fun is what it’s all about. Of course none of this could happen if it wasn’t for our Match Director, awesome target crew, and top dog office crew! Hats off to you all. Saturday: 100-Yards John Ambler................... 250-20X John Grantham................. 250-18x Bud Schalles.................... 250-16x Ron Hensley..................... 250-16x

Tri Cities MSA Hunter Benchrest July 27, 2013

Most days at the range there are a few shooters that have it all figured out and a few shooters that struggle. This is one of the very few times that everyone struggled. The weather wasn’t too bad with the normal amount of switching wind and mirage, but for the Tri Cities, the only excuse that I can come up with is goblins. I would say that it was a learning experience but I don’t think any of us learned a darn thing. All that aside, one shooter showed he had what it takes to win regardless of what is thrown at him. Top Gun Sam Small from the 2013 NBRSA Hunter Nationals took the win with a clean sweep. Congratulations to Sam on a great run this year and thanks to Name Sam Small Bill Small Jim McConnell Dick Mayer Paul Gylling Glenn Sampson Rick DeGroat Frank Taggart Zack Myers

The “Fat Lady Sings” at Oak Hill by Cecil Peterson Well the “Fat Lady” is singing. Benchrest is over for the 2013 year at Oak Hill Gun Club. The end of the season is with mixed emotions. All kinds of thoughts go through the mind at this time; like getting the gun back in tune, putting a new barrel on a primary, securing components for next year’s matches. What about powder? Maybe the groups would be smaller with that new powder. Where to get a good deal on wind flags. Which time is optimal to start my group? How do you watch flags all the time? Overcoming bad benchrest manners like not slapping the trigger, keeping your head down, not rocking the gun while reloading and there just needs to be no more swearing out loud. You see. There is so much that was not accomplished this year. There’s so much more work to be done to be a polished benchrest shooter. However... Nobody was injured; either from others or self-inflicted so maybe it’s not so bad afterall. Nobody was involved in any fights, spitting contests, or body elimination contests so it’s not so bad. Maybe a few highs and a few lows but that’s not so bad. Looking forward to another year and already planning’s begun and that’s not so bad. We shot in the rain today and it hasn’t rained but one inch in three months so we were in a good mood to conclude the years’ shooting - and that’s not so bad. Heavy Varmint 100 finishing order was Dean Ekstrom, Jerry King, Bob Cotton, Jim Schmidt and Jerry Wick. Small group was Jerry King’s 0.128. Heavy Varmint 200 finishing order was Jerry King, Dean Ekstrom, Bob Cotton, Jim Schmidt and Jerry Wick. Small group was Bob Cotton; a nice 0.164. The Heavy Grand order was Dean Ekstrom, Jerry King, Bob Cotton, Jim Schmidt and Jerry Wick. Unlimited 100 winner was Cecil Peterson, 200 yard winner was Jim Carstensen with Cecil Peterson the Grand Agg winner for Unlimited class. The statistics are presented separately; please view at your pleasure. Thanks to the target crew and statistician for another great year. You’re the

Oak Hill Boys from September L-R: Jerry Wick, Bob Cotton, Jerry King Jim Schmidt, Dean Ekstrom Jim Carstensen, Kenny Stone, Cecil Peterson best. Until 2014, Listen.

* Flash * NBRSA News * Flash * NBRSA News * Flash * NBRSA News * Shooter of the Year and Gary Bristow was the winner by a large margin. If you notice in the photo on page 4 covering the Buffalo Shoot two gun, Gary is the awards winner in the orange shirt, third from the left holding up about as many pieces of wood as he can hold with both hands. Gary did an outstanding job of shooting in just about every match he shot this year. Congratulations, Gary.

WBC-12: Rob Carnell

Gary Bristow Mike Bryant writes congratulations to Gary Bristow, Gulf Coast Region Shooter of the Year. At the awards presentation, Regional Director Scott Hunter read off the results for the Gulf Coast

On behalf of the organizing team for the Sydney WBC, we just wanted to thank all the competitors for coming “down under” for the competition. Some travelled great distances and our firearms regulations do not make it easy. As well as seeing some wonderful shooting, we hope competitors had a chance to make a few new friends, and renew some past acquaintances. Hopefully they enjoyed their time in our country. Anybody else who may be

interested in coming to Australia for a match, just let us know, we promise to make you welcome. On behalf of NBRSA, we are grateful for the kind hospitality our Aussie friends have extended and thank them for hosting this great event. Full coverage from the World Team match in Sydney, Australia will be provided in January’s issue. Stay tuned!
