1st of the Year ~ .22 Off-Hand Match!

What a cold start to our 22 offhand season! Our first match of the year was held on January 1st, and despite the holiday and 29-degree temperatures, we had 10 eager shooters.
Another of Mike Gills 4-H shooters showed up for this match, and over the last year we have had two young ladies that have competed. Kelsey and Haley both have had their fathers attend with them to shoot our challenging targets. Haley's father even joined the club last year to encourage her shooting.

Cowboy Action Shooting

Two years ago I introduced Cowboy Action Shooting to the Redwood Gun Club. Just as we were about to have our first monthly shoot in March 2020, we were locked down by the Covid pandemic. After scrambling for a safe way to hold a shoot, we had our first shoot in April. While it was a lightly attended affair, it was to lay the foundation for all the monthly shoots to follow.


Story Time! ~ Written By Waterboy

My father and other family members were not impressed with handguns, so there was no chance that I was inheriting a Colt Bisley. Heck, my uncle was so anti-gun that he wouldn’t even stop and buy me a Luger when billboards in Oregon advertised them for $29.95. And, even way back, Colt Bisley’s sold for a heck of a lot more than $29.95!


.22 Offhand Match

What a fantastic year full of monthly matches. We have challenged about 25 different shooters in our 12 matches. Attendance varied greatly, as this is a great drop-in kind of match. There are very few rules and all you need to bring is $5, a .22 rifle with any sort of sights and sixty or so rounds of ammo. Undoubtedly, one of the most inexpensive ways to have fun!
