Rick Brenneman’s “Hand Sized Handgun” championship set a new attendance record in July, setting a new standard for attendance and prestige. HSH 2017 invited ASI shooters to experience an 8-stage course of fire designed for short-barreled handguns. Shooters could use any handgun they choose, but if they wished to compete for prize and trophy, they had to use a “hand sized” handgun with a barrel less than 3.5” long. ASI’s Washington community responded to his challenge in droves. Shooters brought seemingly every pocket pistol from the Glock 26 to snubbie S&W revolvers to the event.
Shooters included everyone from first-time-at-a-match folks to familiar faces from the local IDPA community. The course offered static steel targets, moving targets (some engaged with one hand only), and curious shooting positions – including kneeling on a piece of carpet. Merchandize prizes from YBS, Dillon Precision, and other donors awaited at the end, but the match itself was relaxed and thought-provoking – just as an ASI event should be.
Jim Till came to HSH 2017 having never shot an ASI event before. He came to get a feel for ASI, and went home with the top random-draw prize: a Dillon Square Deal progressive reloader! Did he enjoy himself? I’ll say – he’s launching an ASI club at his home range on Whidbey Island.
Seventy-five shooters in all came out for HSH 2017 – with David Willecke shooting the fastest time of the day. Results for the match appear on the ASI forum, under “latest match results.” http://asi.boards.net/thr…/…/hand-sized-handgun-championship
SafeFire “Throwing Everything We’ve Got” At October Zombie Shoot
If you haven’t had the chance to shoot at the SafeFire Indoor Range in Camas, Wash., make plans to visit October 7th.
Match Director Tim Dickerson is “throwing everything we’ve got” at his Zombie-themed October shoot.
On top of the obligatory zombies, he’s making plans to field a target that will “walk” across the entire width of the range. (Subject to HQ approval.) Talk about going to lengths to make his shoot a success!
Dickerson is looking for volunteers to help with the match, and also to help with month-to-month operations. If you’re interested, give him a call at (360) 834-7233. You’ll find all the details about the range via https://www.shootatsafefire.com/asi-match
