The results of the January Northeastern Arizona PAL Sportsmen’s Association Handgun Match included: Auto-1, Bill Ragan and Frank Lucero; Auto-2, Don Softley and Norm Messenger; and Revolver, Bob Wheeler.

Stage winners were: first stage, Den Dugdale; and second, third and fourth stages, Frank Lucero.

The weather turned out to be nice and warm. The first stage was an 18-round standard with two-hand, right hand and left hand shooting with reloads thrown in. The second stage was an 18-round course that demanded fast movement with the ability to shoot three different targets in rapid succession. The third stage was a 20-round speed course with a steel stop plate. The fourth stage was a six-round speed course.

The next handgun match with categories for pistol and revolver will begin at 9:45 a.m. on Saturday, April 9. Match fees for members are $5 per gun and for non-members, $8. The group shoots under USPSA/IPSC rules. Bring gloves, water, firewood, a snack and a pen.
