Field Target Winners At The 2023 Pyramyd Air Cup
Over 100 shooters took part in the Field Target Competition at the 2023 Pyramyd Air Cup. Here are the Field Target winners in the different categories…
As with the Benchrest competition, the prizes were presented by Match Director Tyler Patner. Also there were beautiful cups for the winners – see the photograph above.
However the Benchrest winners received cash prizes while the Field Target winners took their choice from a range of mouth-watering airgun-related prizes laid out on the table.
Gerald Long (above) was the first winner to be called. With the top score in the WFTF PCP category of 114, he chose the FX Panthera as his reward!
Next up was the winner of the Hunter PCP class. This was – by far – the biggest category in the Field Target competition with over 70 contestants. Bill Rabbitt was the winner here with a total score of 116 across the two days of competition.

Nathan Thomas (below) was the winner of the WFTF Piston category with a score of 87.
In the Hunter Piston class, two shooters tied with winning scores. HAM Field Target editor Greg Shirhall and Dan Putz both had scores of 90. To resolve the issue without the need for a shoot-out, both contestants agreed to the winner being decided as the result of a coin toss.
Dan Putz won the toss and so became the Hunter Piston winner at the 2023 Pyramyd Air Cup. He chose a Leapers Integrix scope as his prize.
Greg was happy with his performance on the range, however and accepted the toss-up result with the good grace he always displays…
Last, but definitely not least, of the Field Target winners at the 2023 Pyramyd Air Cup was Brian Vanliew. With a score of 113, he headed the Open PCP class.
That was great shooting by the Field Target winners. Congratulations to them all and to all the other shooters who made this a very pleasant and enjoyable competition!
