The Cranbrook Rod and Gun Club is back, and shooters had a record day at a recent event.

Practical Pistol Silhouette (PPS) shooters were treated to four record shooting performances during the Sunday Club Match, July 19.

Jim Zimmerman shot a new record 99/120 high score match record in the Master Class. Sean Simpson won the Marksman Class with a 67/120 score. The Ladies Trophy was taken with Anne Pique’s 50/120 score. Ray  Puranon  set a club record with 11 consecutive hits at the 12 Meter target bank only to be re-set with Jim Zimmerman’s run of  38 hits later in the match. Not yet done with the day Jim Zimmerman set the new 27 Meter record with 16 consecutive hits. Great shooting conditions and a truly supportive group made for an excellent day of shooting!
