Whether you're inexperienced or a life-long gunman, ranges are flooding with shooters who are practicing target shooting. One local club is working to bring both these categories of shooters together with a competition coming up this Sunday.
Marathon Rifle and Pistol Club is encouraging target shooters of all ages to come out this Sunday to the Duane L. Corbin Range for their Bench match. Secretary Treasurer Stan Krogman noted the club is trying to recruit more youngyins to join in and participate in the sport, or what Stan personally calls it, a "discipline".
The club has exclusive access to the 600 yard rifle range, and is working on starting high-powered matches up again.
Precision in these competitions takes years of practice though, something Krogman says he's still working on. Speaking of such, they'll be out practicing Saturday at the Corbin Range firing off whatever members wish to shoot; so if you want to put your Remington to use and learn some new skills, this Saturday and Sunday may be your shot.
A side note: all members and match participants must first check in and pay the county range access fee, at the main parking lot. Match participants are free to continue to use the county's 25-300 yard facilities after the match.
