FEATURE // FIELD TARGET
With a spring-piston air rifle, Kevin Yee outscored the highest Open PCP shooter.

HUNTER PCP Hunter PCP was the most popular class, with 24 shooters. Dan Finney, shooting a Benjamin Marauder, led Saturday with 53 of 60 possible points and closed out the event with a 47 to win over Jerry LaRocca, also shooting a Marauder. HUNTER PCP 1-15 53 50 44 50 51 16-30 47 47 51 44 41 TOTAL 100 97 95 94 92

OPEN PISTON
Kevin Yee, who had decided at the last minute to fly in from California, scored 50 points each day, posting a higher score than the Open PCP winner—a very impressive performance. Larry Bowne shot the entire match offhand. OPEN PISTON Kevin Yee Tony Narracci Larry Bowne Arthur Deuel 1-15 50 45 34 32 16-30 50 44 29 23 TOTAL 100 89 63 55

Dan Finney Jerry LaRocca Bill Day John Tyler Max Lewin

The entire match was hosted smoothly, efficiently, and deftly by Crosman Corporation, so much so that by the end of Saturday, a number of shooters were openly suggesting that Crosman host the National Field Target Championships next year. Crosman has said that it is considering doing just that. What do you need to compete in Field Target? If you’d like to try your hand at field target competition, you’ll need: • An air rifle or air pistol* capable of holding at least one-inch groups at 30 yards. Air rifles capable of top-level national and international competition can typically hold ¾ to 1-inch groups at 50 yards. You can start with a modest break-barrel spring-piston air rifle or spend as much as several thousand dollars for a customized match rifle. • Some pellets. You’ll have to shoot groups with different kinds of pellets to see what works best in your airgun. • A scope. Up to 12X for Hunter or Pistol division; no limit to magnification for Open and WFTF divisions. • A place to compete. Visit the American Airgun Field Target Association website: www.aafta.org, for a list of member clubs. * Next month, Jock covers the Pistol results of the Northeastern Regional Field Target Championships.

WFTF
At the end of Day 2, Ray Apelles and Greg Sauve were tied at 108 each, resulting in a shoot-off. It took eight rounds of shooting at progressively smaller targets until Sauve won by knocking down a ¾ inch target from 53 yards. It is particularly impressive that four of the shooters in this division posted higher scores than the more powerful Open PCP class. WFTF Greg Sauve Ray Apelles Dan Brown Jeffrey Paddock Tim MacSweyn 1-15 54 57 57 52 46 16-30 54 51 49 53 45 TOTAL 108 108 106 105 91

HUNTER PISTON
Hector Medina led both days in Hunter Piston Class, posting a 47 on Saturday, followed by a 36 on Sunday, for a championship total of 83. Crosman engineer Jeff Hanson took second, shooting a prototype of the new MAV77 under-lever air rifle. HUNTER PISTON Hector Medina Jeff Hanson Dean Buczek
