CMP EIC Pistol Match shooters beat the storm.

BWSA held CMP EIC .22 Rimfire Pistol and Service Pistol matches on Sunday, August 18th, 2019. The sun kept the day hot, while afternoon storms threatened to interfere with the last relays. Luckily, the brief storm rolled south and the day’s shooting was a great success. We had folks visit us from hours away to compete and we’re thankful for all the shooters who joined us for a Sunday of fun.
