    Arizona Benchrest Shooters SP-Unl5 Southwest Regional Championship Results

    The Arizona Benchrest Shooters held the Sporter - Unlimited 5 Shot Southwest Regional Championship on January 3rd and 4th, 2015. This Championship included a Sporter Grand Agg and an Unlimited 5 Shot Grand Agg. These will be combined with the February 7th and 8th, 2015 Light Varmint and Heavy Varmint Southwest Regional Championship results to create a Combined 3 Gun Agg and 4 Gun Agg. Thursday and Friday saw temperatures below 40° F. Wind picked up with 18 mph gusts that ripped apart target frames during Friday’s practice. Luckily, by Saturday the wind had calmed down and we had some great shooting conditions.

    We had a total of 23 competitors for this match, with several newer shooters. This was Chris Baitx third benchrest match ever, and he shot a very impressive 0.089” group with a bag gun! Lou Murdica shot some great groups on Saturday, one of which measured at 0.039” and has been submitted as a possible Unlimited 100 yard record. He used the same impressive rail gun that his granddaughter had used during the December match, and this earned him the top place for the 100 yard Unlimited Agg. The Agg measured at 0.1262”, which was small enough to be submitted to the NBRSA for a possible record. Walt Berger shot some impressive Sporter groups, landing him in first place in the 100 yard Sporter Agg.

    The 200 yard matches on Sunday also had great conditions. The cold finally began to let up, and the temperature raised about 10 degrees to a high of 62° F for the day. Lester Bruno took the 200 yard Unlimited Agg and Lou Murdica took the 200 yard Sporter Agg. In the end, Lou ended up taking the Unlimited Grand Agg and Sporter Grand Agg with a very impressive lead over the competition in both.

    Thanks to everyone who attended and we hope to see you again next month for the Light Varmint and Heavy Varmint Southwest Regional Championship on February 7th and 8th, 2015.
