Crosman All American Field Target Shoot 2018. Day Three And Results.
There was heavy rain overnight. Things looked pretty dismal first thing in the morning, leading some competitors to head for home early. But the weather slowly dried up after mid-morning, rewarding the hardy competitors in Day Three of the Crosman All American Field Target Shoot 2018.
The weather started like this…

After Day Two of the event, Sunday saw the second part of the main Field Target event. The shooters who had been squadded in the Open Field Course yesterday shot the Woods Course. And vice versa.

And here’s one of the target lanes in the Woods course. The uncooperative undergrowth makes these challenging targets…

Many Crosman employees worked hard all weekend to make the Crosman All American Field Target Shoot 2018 a success. Below we see Nic Hargarther (in blue) enthusiastically explaining about the company’s latest developments in barrels and pellets to an interested group of shooters.

There’s no question that Thomas air rifles are becoming ever more popular with Field Target shooters. Most are un-silenced and they’re LOUD!
Well that’s it from the Crosman All American Field Target Shoot 2018.Thanks again to Crosman and – particularly – to Match Director Sean McDaniel. Sean not only organized and ran the shoot, he also obviously had a great time, mentored a new shooter throughout and even scored third place in the Hunter PCP competition. How’s that for multi-tasking!
However, there was some interesting stuff to be seen – in addition to the competition – and we’ll cover this in the next few days.
