Pyramyd Air Cup 2018 Winners And Day Three Report
Sunday was the final day of the PA Cup. So here we have a report and news of the Pyramyd Air Cup 2018 winners.
I’m proud to say that HAM team members shot very well in this competition! Sean McDaniel and Greg Shirhall both won their classes, while Eric Brewer came fourth in his class. Congratulations gentlemen!!!
Above. That’s Sean McDaniel who joined the Pyramyd Air Cup 2018 winners by placing first in the Hunter PCP Class. Sean was delighted with his win – “I couldn’t believe it!” he told me afterwards. He was even more blown away to win a $2,400 Ataman M2S air rifle as his prize!

In Hunter Piston, HAM Field target editor Greg Shirhall placed first. We can see him in action below.
HAM pistonl air rifle tester Eric Brewer placed fourth this time. He made up much ground with a great Day Two to the PA Cup, but was recovering from a – for him – poor Day One. Here’s Eric below.
Other Pyramyd Air Cup 2018 winners were Nathan Thomas in WFTF Piston and Will Piatt in Open PCP. Greg Suave and Jerry LaRocca tied in the WFTF PCP Class – at the time of writing, I don’t know who won the shoot out. Congratulations to all!
Of course, Pyramyd Air Cup 2018 winners also included those who drew success in the raffle and – actually – everyone…
You see, every person I spoke to was having a great time and really enjoyed this annual event. As you can see, there’s lots of friendly conversation among competitors in between their turns to shoot.

Glenn Thomas is one of the few competitors consistently choosing a front AO scope. His choice to miss-out on the otherwise almost universal side AO doesn’t stop him from always shooting strongly!
John Eroh was having good success shooting Nielsen slugs through his Air Arms S500 Extra. This unusual choice of ammo obviously worked well for him as he scored 85 – only just outside the Top Three places.
Here’s a close-up of these 15.5 Grain hollow point slugs.
Dennis Himes always shoots well with his Daystate Red Wolf, below, as does his brother Tom. They field identical rigs and often achieve exactly the same – often winning- scores! This time, Dennis placed third in the Hunter PCP class with a score of 86. Tom was just one shot behind with 85!
There were also several “Tactical Strollers” in use for carrying equipment.
HAM covered a particularly fine example in this story about Pete’s Tactical Stroller some time back. It’s easy to build your own…
Thanks to the whole Pyramyd Air Team for all their hard work in planning and running the annual Pyramyd Air Cup! In particular Kristen Coss and Tyler Patner take the lead. We all benefit from their efforts!
