Congratulations to Andy Peterson who traveled down from Salt Lake to crush the locals! :) Andy and Brian were basically head to head till the end, until Brian’s AR became a single shot.

Kudos to the following:
Andy Peterson: Tac Optics and Overall winner
Shawn Harris: Open
Jonathan Payne: Tac Irons

We had several new shooters and they did great for their first times! Hope to see you all at future matches.

I would also like to thank my co-match director Eric Stidham for the collaboration putting together some challenging stages.

We would welcome another car we can use in shooting competitions and training. It need not run, but should have doors that open, seats you can sit in, and working seatbelts. Know of one? We can trailer it from where it is to the range. Thanks! ... See MoreSee Less

Reminder: Annual Club Meeting 6PM Thu

Currently planned for Berry’s Pavillion 6pm @ the Range. We will make adjustments if wind drives us away.
You can join/renew prior (5PM on).  The cost is $10.  Note this is a meeting of the members of the non-profit Southern Utah Practical Shooters. The main purpose is to elect officers and conduct other business as the quorum requires.

Current Officers:

Ken Nelson, President
Jeff Bailey, VP
Bob Wolf, Treasurer/Secretary
Jim Meade, Board Member
Chad Larsen, Board Member

All current board members and officers wish to run again, except for Chad Larsen. Chad has been elected President of the Dixie Desperado’s cowboy club. We wish Chad the best!¬† Fortunately, he has no plans to give up Practical Shooting!¬†¬† Glen Wong has expressed interest in running for that seat. And of course anybody in good standing is welcome to run for any office.¬† The by-laws do require board members to become USPSA RO certified within the year they serve.

Elected officers will then continue executing our three fold mission:

  • promote practical shooting
  • promote shooting education
  • support and defend the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution

After the meeting, the Competition Clinic scheduled will take place.
