John Sommers gets his first PRS win at the K&M Precision Rifle Competition, hosted by Shannon Kay and Bryan Morgan.
Tough conditions and even tougher competitors grinded it out all weekend despite the swirly winds, sand, mud and rain. John Sommers held his 1st day lead of just a few points to Jeff Badley and others throughout day 2 ending with a win and 1,985 points.
A win is great and even better when surrounded by so much great competition. Dustin Morris edged in with second place at 1,954 points and Jeff Badley gathered 1,937.5 points good enough for third place. 1930 points was just good enough for fourth place held by myself.
Everybody knows how consistently accurate "the boys from Oklahoma" are, they very rarely give up any points. I am very proud for John, I know he is a very serious competitor and has been chasing 1st for sometime now.
And congrats to all the the shooters who made it to K&M for their kick-off event that may have just set the standard for premier precision rifle matches all over the country.
The amount of work that went it to this event was absolutely unbelievable, from the prop cars to shoot through and pipes to shoot and crawl through to the shoot house to multiple mover stages, run and gun, TYL's, KYL's, UKD's each stage had an exciting and challenging appeal.
Tony Gimmelle won the PRS side match sponsored by K&M and the PRS. Tony was awarded $500 cash for his fast and accurate shooting display off a cluster of rocks shooting four 12" plates at over 735 yards and doing it in just 15 seconds. Outstanding shooting Tony!
