Team MFL enters into USPSA

Starting early in the morning Rick drove out to Pioneer Sportsmen Club of Dunbarton NH to attend his first USPSA match of the season. Bringing his humble H&K VP9 to compete in the Limited category against highly modified race guns (minus muzzle brakes and optics) he represented well. After running through 7 different stages he came away with a 13th ranking in his division against a total of 25 contestants. He placed 37th in the overall event against everyone including the Open class (where the race guns take on optics and muzzle brakes) out of 105 competitors.

Team MFL takes to the Competitions

One of our Team MFL Competition Shooters, Rick Dowd, attended his first match of the season. It was an IDPA match at Harvard Sportsmans Club. It was both an IDPA classifier as well as 3 non classifier stages. Rick started as an unclassified shooter. He worked hard and placed 4th in his division of unclassified and firearm class of Standard Service Pistol. With his trusty H&K VP9 he was able to move up two divisions to Marksman and was only 6.13 seconds shy of a Sharpshooter classification. As this is just the begining he has his eyes on that Sharpshooter classification.

A Hero visits the range

On this Saturday, April 23rd a local Marine and hero came into the range to visit us. Corporal Woody Williams wanted to come visit the range that was supporting the NH Gold Star Families Memorial Monument fund that he himself is supporting and acting as a spokesman for. This gentleman and hero was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions on February 23rd 1945 in support of the battle for Iwo Jima that he and his fellow Marines were undertaking.

I’m #1 (At Least for the Next 5 Minutes). By Dana Benner

  It is day two of the fundraiser to help erect a memorial honoring the Gold Star families.  After signing in and while waiting for my name to be called, I walked over to the wall paying homage to all of my Brothers and Sisters.  Some have come home and some have not.  From there I went to the wall where the leader from day one of the shoot was posted.  It was none other than Alan Ouellette, the brother of Corporal Michael Ouellette, in whose honor this shoot is being held.  Alan’s score was 18.
