Our thanks to Uintah County Attorney Mark Thomas, Uintah County Sheriff Vance Norton and their great staff for sponsoring a shooting competition and dutch oven dinner during Fall Conference. There were a ton of training officers on hand who coached everyone through the competition. Those with little to no experience were grateful for the hands-on help. Even the veteran shooters appreciated the coaches being there.
There were four courses of fire:
1. The Dueling Tree Station. Shooters were partnered with another shooter. Shooters attempted to turn steel targets to the correct color by impacting each target with accurate rounds on target.
2. 25 Round Course of Fire for Score.
3. Scenario Based Training Course of Fire. Shooters were seated at a table in a mock courtroom scenario. The shooter was required to engage targets accurately and quickly.
4. Static 25 Yard Range. Shooters engaged static targets at known and predetermined distances for speed and accuracy from the holster.
Everyone had a great time. Here are the top 3 scores in each course of fire as well as office and individual scores.
