Jeff Cooper Memorial Shoot – May 24, 2020
Jeff and Janelle’s 100th birthday is in May of 2020. In honor and celebration of this, and upon the suggestion of the late Jack Furr (former Gunsite Staff member), we will be hosting a one (1) day special match.
This match will feature some of the old Cooper courses of fire with the final sixteen finishers to shoot off in the famous “J Ladder.” (Details are still being sorted out.) While not a GAS Match sized event, we think it appropriate to recognize Jeff and Janelle’s 100th birthday on Memorial Day weekend with celebratory gunfire and family competition. The match will not exceed one hundred (100) shooters.
The Cooper 1911 Centennial Match will be a “retro” event. As Cooper would have liked…it is a single stack 1911 ONLY event. (No revolvers, Double Action auto-pistols (“Krunchentickers”), striker fired, etc.) No whining! This is a Cooper event! If you wish to whine about only 1911’s, the complaint manager is Helen Waite. If you want to complain, go to Helen Waite.) Also, no red dot sights, race holsters, or extended magazines. Think about what Jeff Cooper would have worn and shot.
Awards will be presented by placing in the event. A special retro shirt and lunch is included.
There will be a contest for best “BBQ Rig.” It can be any gun, holster, etc. So, bring your best pistol, revolver, stocks, holsters and belts to be judged. Contest is solely based upon what we think looks the best.
Watch our social media and web page announcing when we will open the limited enrollments for this festive day. Some proceeds will benefit the Jeff Cooper Legacy Foundation.
Proficiency at arms is a perishable skill. Several things separate Gunsite from the rest of the industry 1) world class instruction, 2) world class facilities, and 3) the ability to maintain proficiency with what you learned in class from the world...
