Halifax County Gun Club welcomed skeet shooting enthusiast to the annual “Halifax Open” this past week-end. This popular event is sanctioned by the National Skeet Shooting Assoc. With just about perfect weather conditions, many high scores were recorded. To accommodate the many shooters expected, action started on Thursday. Local club member, W.T. Terry wasted no time in scoring a near perfect 99 in the 12 gauge event to set the bar for the other competitors. The 28 gauge event followed with Abington, Va. native Jimmy Smith also scoring a high score of 99 which won that event. Ronnie Newton and Pam Larrowe tied as runner-up with 97s which Larrowe won in a sudden death shoot off. Pictured left to right are W.T. Terry and Jimmy Smith being congratulated by skeet committee member Charles Daniel.
Pam Larrowe, one of the top shooters in the country, continued her near perfect week-end shooting scoring a 100x100 in the 20 gauge event. Larrowe led the entire state of Virginia in 2018 with a four gun average of .9758 which includes the very, very difficult .410 gauge. She stated that Halifax is one of her favorite clubs to shoot at since there are great targets and great backgrounds. To close out the week-end, the .410 event was last. This difficult event can leave many shooters scratching their heads. To no ones surprise, Larrowe again prevailed. Posting an amazing score of 98x100 leaves no one to question her shooting ability.
Halifax County Gun Club welcomed a first time visitor to this years event. Shooting enthusiast, Charlie Lucas, of Chelmsford, England discovered the local gun club’s registered event on the club website halifaxskeet.com . Since this event coincided with his vacation plans to the United States he made plans to participate in all the events offered by the gun club over the four days. Lucas stated that he had a wonderful time and greatly enjoyed the time he spent at Halifax. “Lovely club, lovely people and unbeatable hospitality” he stated. He especially enjoyed the home cooked southern food he said. Pictured above holding his American made Kolar over/under shotgun Charlie stated that he plans on attending the World Shoot this year which will be held in San Antonio, Texas.
