Congratulations to John Gaines who is headed to the U. S. Palma Team tryouts in North Carolina.  John qualified for the team tryouts by winning the Palma segment of the long range matches over Memorial weekend at Ft. Wolters.  Good luck John. 

  On Saturday, May 26th, F-class shooter Jeff Cochran, using his 6.5 x .284 cleaned the 600 yard line with a score of 200 x 11.  He then cleaned 800 with a 150 x 15, 900 with a 150 x 10 and the 1000 with a 150 x 9.  The only problem was shot number 8 at 1000 yards was an X on target 11, he unfortunately was on target 12.  Despite the crossfire this was a most exceptional display of marksmanship. 

  Steve Urban, U. S. Navy Reserve Rifle Team member, just returned from competing in the west coast Navy Fleet Matches.  Steve won another M1 Garand Trophy rifle.  At the rate he is winning these rifles, he may not be allowed back in California.
