The results of the July Northeastern Arizona PAL Sportsmen’s Association Handgun Match included: Auto-1, Frank Lucero; Auto-2, Bob Wheeler; Revolver, Bob Cayton; and Rifle, Frank Lucero.

Stage winners were: first and second stages, Frank Lucero; third stage, Allen Papin; and fourth stage, Bob Wheeler.

The weather turned out to be nice and warm. The first stage was a 15-round standard with two-hand, right hand and left hand shooting with reloads thrown in. The second stage was a six-round speed course that demanded a fast draw movement with the ability to shoot different targets in rapid succession. The third stage was a 24-round field course with movement and lots of different targets with cover in front. The fourth stage was a 24-round field course that demanded shooting on the move.

The next handgun match with categories for pistol and revolver will begin at 8:45 a.m. on Saturday, Aug 13. Match fees for members are $5 per gun and for non-members, $8. The group shoots under USPSA/IPSC rules. Bring gloves, water, a snack and a pen.
