Another 1st Place for DSS 1...by Shawn Claussen on 05/18/15
I had the opportunity to shoot the YSSA Steel Match at the Milan Rifle Club on Sunday 05/17/2015. I shot well enough to finish 1st in my division and 4th overall. This match was co-sponsored by the Youth Shooting Sports Association which has a Scholastic Pistol Program as being under their umbrella.
The Scholastic Pistol Program is designed for 10 year olds and above to participate in steel challenge matches against their peers. A lot of clubs not only provide pistols but ammo as well for their members to shoot. It is a great opportunity to get kids out and involved in pistol competition. This match was designed to get juniors out and try pistol competition and to draw attention to the efforts of everyone involved in the SPP here in the Quad Cities Area.
