Check out GBR-IV Day 1, Day 2 and Day 4!

I slept in more than I should have, so I was a little late to the Saturday shoot.  I missed the safety briefing. Mr. Completely was kind to fill me in on the rules for the Steel Challenge.  I wanted to use the Ruger Mark III 22/45; however, I forgot the magazines back in my room.  I was going to shoot the Glock 19, then quickly changed my mind to use the Les Bear TRS 1911.

Shooting a steel challenge stage for the first time, I think I did pretty well!

David at RNS did pretty well too!  He used a Beretta 92 and the ParaUSA LDA Limited .45.

This is Bill from the National Shooting Sports Foundation.

These videos do not do Molly justice.

This bloke does just fine for only being introduced to his first handgun the day before.

Phil at RNS rocking with the .22LR.

Many folks also enjoyed the NSSF pizza dinner.  While we sat and ate, Mr. Completely and Elizabeth got the raffle started.  Kevin almost immediately notified the winners of the ParaUSA GI 1911 and $2000 training gift certificate from Front Sight. Congratulations to Sean Brzozowzski of Minnesota and Scott Warren of Mississippi for their win!

DirtCrashr, David and myself managed to do well with the raffle.  I’m coming home with a Brownells range bag, patches and other misc. items.  So cool!

The lucky man of the night, however, was  Chuck.  He won the ParaUSA Gun Rights 1911!

Mr. Gura demonstrated his method to eradicated constitutional injustice using the the iPhone and “the force.”  Sebastrian of Snowflakes in Hell joins in for the fun.

    Thanks again.

    You got some great pics. I’m not in any of them, but I’m a recluse. You have a very good one of my father looking confused.

    Great meeting you.

    Oh, and move out of California.

    Best regards,
