There is an interesting 10 minute video called Out of the Shadows that gives a perspective on Shooting.
Well worth watching..
Handgun Silhouette Shooting
The steel was ringing at the informal Handgun Silhouette match held April 7, on the PPC Range. Targets were falling like 10 pins,
and in fact some were10 pins. Thanks to Tom Teer, several new Chickens, Pigs and Rams joined the targets at the 25 and 50 yard lines
and posed a good challenge for the shooters. Pictured are some of the .22s and Cfs used including a TC in .357mag,
a vintage .22 High Standard Olympic style SA, a scoped S&W .41 mag, several 9mm SAs, and a collection of Ruger revolvers
including a long bbl .44 mag. These matches will be for fun only, so check the Club Website for details for the next match.
