2015 Crosman All-American Field Target Championship – Results
Saturday and Sunday, the main shooting days for the 2015 Crosman All-American Field Target Championship were blessed with fine Up-State NY weather after rain on Friday. Clearly organizer Sean McDaniel has some great meteorological connections. The rain stopped Friday night and started again just after shooting finished on Sunday afternoon!
