The Matches

The TV-Land Cop Shoot was a fun filled event that featured just about every TV cops' firearms. The categories were based upon what guns were used in TV Cop shows. Police "profile" targets in a variety of colors were used - Orange, Green, and Blue. Last year's experience showed that the shooters cannot see hits on the black targets, so this year they were used only in our last match -"StereoType Gangsta."

We had 17 categories and 2 special trophies.

The "Cagney & Lacey" Trophy went to the Female Shooter with the Highest Score from any match. This year's winner was Deborah Smith with a score of 109-1x in the Rizzoli & Isles Match.

The "Barney Fife" Trophy for the lowest score by any shooter was issued this year to a Good Sport.

All matches except for the last two, were shot in the same manner. The regular matches had three 25-second relays.

  1. The first relay was 10 rounds from the "FBI Crouch" at 7 Yards. Competitors fired 5 rounds, reloaded and fired the last 5 rounds.
    The "FBI" Crouch requres a single handed crouching stance facing forward with the gun brought up to elbow height. A string was held at about 42" off the ground. Shooters could not bring their gun above that line and could not "aim" the gun using their sights. After completing the first relay, the shooters safely moved back to the 50' line.
  2. The second relay was also 10 rounds in 25 seconds. Position was "Off-Hand" - One handed, Double Action (if applicable) extended arm using sights.
  3. The Third relay used the "Combat Stance" using 2 hands and aiming. Slower Fire - 5 Rounds in 25 Seconds.

Following the completion of each set of relays, shooters changed their targets, scored their target, then placed the scores on index cards where they were then given to the official scorekeeper - Tom Plante.
Note: Due to the size of the targets, only the index cards were retained. This report does not include an image of any of the targets.

Most events featured Single and Double Action Revolvers and Semi-Autos. However, at the insistance of several shooters, the "Gunsmoke" category was added for Single Action SASS type revolvers. This category required a different timing setup due to reloading issues and matches in this category were completed at the end of the regular matches.

Following "Gunsmoke", we ran our new match- STEREOTYPE GANGSTER. This match consisted of any semi-auto pistol shot "Gangsta" Style . Ten Rounds at 7 Yards, followed by 10 Rounds at 50 feet. The gun had to be held and aimed "laying flat", knuckles up, sights parallel to the floor.

Some excellent scores were turned in, do to a procedural mistake - we allowed too much time. Participants had all the time they needed to aim; next year - 10 shots, 20 seconds per relay.

The Event

Pre-Shoot inqiries indicated we might have more shooters then last year, however after all was done, we had about a dozen competitors. The Ladies of Shongum ran the kitchen. Hot Dogs were $1.00 and Soda was $1.00. Donuts and coffee were included with the entrant's fees.

Shongum was running an orientation session for new members who were told to "not bring any guns". After orientation, a couple went home to get their guns to participate in the shoot.

The "BIG WINNER" this year was Jack Stankiewicz He outscored Steven in a few matches, but it came down mostly to three shooters - Jack Stankiewicz, Larry Luhrman and Steven Smith.
