May 10th, 2016 - A note from Match Director Roger Estes, regarding the Smallbore Silhouette Match this weekend:
"Kelly Engel fired a long run on pigs of 37, not 22. I discussed this with Greg Connor. Mr. Connor is the head of the NRA Silhouette Department. He advised me on the rule. So, congratulations to Miss Engel for outshooting the last Fairfax Rod & Gun Club long run by 14 pigs! In case anyone would like to know: Mr. Connor advised me that for ladies, the national record for smallbore pigs is 55. Therefore a longrun of 56 will get a new national record. So, if a lady shoots 15 straight, then, think of it, only 41 more to go!! Our July match, a State Championship, is an NRA registered match. That national record could be broken in that match."
Congratulations to Kelly Engel for being our new long run champion in pigs for Fairfax Rod & Gun Club!
