AUSTIN, TX — This past weekend concluded the 2016 Brownells Ladies’ Multigun Fall Festival at Rockcastle Shooting Center in Park Mammoth, KY. Shooters included 105 female competitors, who tackled 8 challenging stages and 2 bonus matches over 2 days.
The match was a success for a true multigun experience with 3-gun, 2-gun, and 1-gun stages. Red Stitch Tactical sponsored the steel targets used by Stage Designer Mike Oberman in square bays, structures, and natural terrain throughout the Park Mammoth property. Range Master Nancy Oberman coordinated a staff of over 30 people to ensure the event was fun and safe. While several competitors were sponsored professionals, many participants were shooting their first major match.
“We are thrilled that we were able to offer a great match experience and share the A Girl & A Gun culture with these incredible women,” says Match Director Julianna Crowder. “Our sponsors offered generous prizes and giveaways, and our staff was talented, kind, and hard-working. Our clinics, activities, and stages served to strengthen the female presence in the world of competitive shooting sports. We couldn’t be more proud.”
Competitors fired over 170 rounds of carbine, over 180 rounds of pistol, over 105 rounds of bird shot, and 6 slugs across the 8 stages. Carbine targets ranged from as close as 10 yards to as far as 350 yards. One bonus match was a Tripod Team Match including over 26 rifle rounds, 11 birdshot, 1 slug, and over 20 pistol rounds among 3 competitors. The second bonus match was a Precision Rifle Match including 10 rounds at distances from 400 to 700 yards.
