We wanted to post a few pictures of the recent MSU hosted shotgun event. The weather was cold and snowy for the first two days, cold and sunny for the final day. However, hot chocolate, coffee, and good targets kept everyone's spirits high. We are lucky to have some very good and very dedicated shooters in our club. Tim Swindell (http://www.swindellphotography.com/) father of our very own Aynne Swindell took these amazing pictures (click on image for larger version).
We are proud to announce the dates of the 2nd Annual Bulldog Invitational. We welcome shooters from all colleges and universities. This year we will allow NSSA and ATA (not associated with a college) shooters who wish to join us. These shooters will shoot with the college shooters, but will not compete for the individual or team awards. Friday March 1st - 5-stand, Saturday March 2nd - American Skeet, Sunday March 3rd - American Trap. Please see the flyer below and know that you are welcome to join us.
National Wild Turkey Federation's regional, state, and local directors stop by our practice this past Wednesday to present our student club with two $10,000 checks which will be deposited into our Midway USA endowment. We feel very fortunate and are very grateful for the generous donation. There are many wonderful sportsman's organizations, but when you can please support both NWTF and Midway USA. They have both been instrumental in helping us build this club. Also, if you are inclined, please donate to our endowment, Midway USA will match your money, 3:1 until the end of 2012.
The Fall semester is underway and the MSUSSC continues to grow. We are currently around 60 members shooting shotguns and pistols. Our pistol shooters have been very active by holding weekly practice sessions and participating in a number of IDPA events across the state and region. Each Wednesday the shotgun members meet to shoot the games of Trap and Skeet. We will soon be shooting some 5-Stand as well. Additionally we hope to have a couple squads travel to regional shoots to compete later this fall. Please come and join us, you do not need to be an accomplished shooter or even own a gun.
Congratulations to student shooter Brett James who shot is first perfect 25 in Trap this past Wednesday evening. As you can see, his hat paid the ultimate price.
On July 1, 2012 a group of MSU Shooting Sports pistol members headed to Byram, Mississippi for a HOT but enjoyable shoot. Our pistol shooters all shot above their averages. As one shooter commented "our Friday practice sessions are paying off". You can see the results of the shoot here. Below are a few videos of our shooters in action.
