JUNEAU - The Juneau Gun Club held its Pacific International Trapshooting Association monthly competition Sept. 12. The field was limited, with good weather starting the three-event match. It ended with heavy rain. Jay Davis, an "A" shooter, was the high gun overall with wins in each event.
In singles, shooting at a single clay target released from the trap house 16 yards from the shooter, Davis had 99 hits out of 100, Pete Hudson nailed 98 out of 100, Mal Menzies hit 97 out of 100, Steve Bennett scored 96 out of 100 and Bud Burnett took down 94 out of 100.
In Doubles (when two birds at the same time are released from the house, 16 yards from the shooter) Davis was again the winner with 95/100, followed by Menzies with 93/100. Hudson scored 86/100, Bennett had 85/100 and Burnett finished with 83/100.
In Handicap, Davis was the long yardage winner from 26 yards with 83/100, followed by Hudson at 26 yards shooting a 73/100. The short yardage handicap was won by Bennett, shooting a 88/100 at 20 yards, while Burnett fired the same score from 21 yards but lost in a shoot-off. Menzies trailed all handicap shooters by shooting a 84/100 yards as fired from 22 yards.
