A View From Our High Power Shooters

May was a busy month for VSSA's rifle shooters.  Included in the photos High Power Chairman Mike Jamison sent are a couple that give you an idea of what long range shooting looks like.  The first photo It is looking up at the 300 yard firing line from the target pit.

  This one is Mike working the target.
Mike Jamison and Phil Lowry entered the CMP Eastern Games at Camp Butner, NC as the VSSA Sniper Team, shooting Springfield 03A4 bolt action Period sniper rifles.  They were able to placed on a squad with friends from Virginia/NC who were also shooting.  Joining Mike and Phil was Alan Lashley, long-time VSSA coach and recently retired from the Virginia Guard, now living and fishing in Wilmington, NC, and Mark Chicowitz, another Virginian.

Phil Lowry is on the ground shooting, Mike Jamison is laying next to him , coaching him and reading the wind.  Alan Lashley ( former VSSA coach) is scoring.
 Marc Chikowitz is watching on the scope, (another Virginia shooter)

The VSSA Sniper team (Roanoke Branch) was in action May 19th and 20th at Oak Ridge, Tennessee.  The rain let up Sunday just in time for a beautiful day at the range.  Mike Jamison and Don Hanley shot together.  Scores at 300 yards were competitive, but 600 yards is still giving them some trouble.
