Sherwood Airgunners of Steubenville Ohio Indoor Bench rest Shoot Report 11/14-15 2020

Eighteen shooters made their way to the Sherwood Archery Club near Steubenville Ohio this past weekend to try their hand at USARB 25 yard bench rest shooting for the first match of the 2020/2021 season. We are planning to try to hold a match each month depending on the situation with the corona virus. We had shooters in three classes compete for the top spot with Heavy Varmint being the largest class with thirteen shooters. Keith Walters topped the list shooting a 20 caliber RAW HM1000 known as “the Blue Beast” because of its dominance on the benches at Sherwood!! Many shooters in the club have shot 250 scorecards with it that never shot one with their own gun!! Keith gave us all a break and shot three 249 cards for a 747 with 33x’s total leaving the door open this time but no one was able to beat him as the closest to him was Jeff Little with a 745 with 44x’s also shooting a RAW TM1000 and in third was Carl Lucas who shot his new Daystate Wolverine with a 741 with 30x’s total In light Varmint we had two shooters with Ron Heckathorne shooting the only 250 card of the match for a total of 743 with31x’s topping Doug Cunningham who had a 735 with 21x’s total for the runner up position. Both men were shooting RAW BM500 rifles.

The USA Spring piston class was dominated by Al Duster shooting his trusty Walther LGU who shot a VERY respectable score of 727 with 17 x’s ,that being only 8 points off of the USARB record There were two new shooters in the spring piston class from Pennsylvania that joined us this time, Walt Tutak and his Son Braden fought it out for second and third with 12 year old Braden outshooting his Dad for second place!!! Good job Braden!!!!! Hope to see them back next time!! Get that gun fixed Walt!! (Walt had a multitude of problems with his Walther LGU )

Thanks to everyone that attended the shoot!! We hope to have one every month this winter but that remains to be seen as they are threatening shut downs again due to Covid. We shall see!!
