Gunsite Alumni Shoot
The Gunsite Alumni Shoot, is “A Social Event only Slightly Interrupted by Gunfire”.
Founded by Jeff Cooper in the late 70’s, it is held every year in the fall for graduates of a 3 or more day handgun class. Stages are set in simulators and on square ranges with scenarios similar to actual 250 class problems.
Our instructors volunteer their time and provide a huge learning experience for everyone. We serve a great lunch and barbecue dinner included in the price of the match. There is a party after the match with samples from Gunsite vendors and awards for the top three shooters, junior, lady and senior. In the Cooper tradition, the middle shooter wins the Gunsite Service Pistol. There is a gun to win at each side match also.
I have attended the 250 Pistol, 223 Carbine and Precision Rifle classes over the past several years. One of the most important lessons I learned had to do with mindset. I am 63 years old and weigh only 145 pounds, but I maintain my shooting skills....
