Last Saturday and Sunday we had  kick off matches for South Whidbey Action Pistol. 
To kick off the new Action Pistol bays at Holmes Harbor Rod & Gun, we decided to shoot a full match every 4th Saturday and Sunday every month, even through the Winter, and this month was our kick off pair of steel matches. Saturday, the first match, was wet, rainy, muddy, and sloppy. The next day, Sunday the 28th, was rain free and very mild in temperature for this time of year. It was a great day for a steel match. Over the two days we had 44 entries, which is not bad at all considering the weather and time of year for starting out a new series of matches.

Thank goodness for 'pop up' shelters

Sunday was warmer with no rain, a much more pleasant shooting experience.
