The first Hoosier Outlaws match was a success! Despite a questionable weathrer forecast, we had 17 shooters, with several from Michigan, including Three Gun Cole (more about him later).
The side matches and main match got started a little late as we were getting everything organized. The first shot went off at 10:15 AM, and we had the entire match finished with awards handed out by 2:30 PM. Right as we finished, the freezing rain started coming down – we finished just in time! We only had one shooter from FWRR, but we did have several spectators from the Club come out and watch.
The main match was 60 rifle rounds, 60 pistol rounds, and 26 shotgun rounds on steel targets. The feedback was excellent, and many shooters said that they would return. Three Gun Cole is a world champion shooter in his class from southern Michigan, and his feedback was very positive; he said that he would highly recommend this match to shooters in the future. The beauty of the Single Action Shooting Society is that there are many categories for age and gender, and different shooting styles.
The top shooter was Three Gun Cole; Wild Walt (your correspondent) came in second, and Dallas McBoomBoom came in third. Of the 4 female shooters, Kaya finished fifth overall; first in the Cowgirl Class.
Match Results (top five) were:
