Annual Side-by-Side Fun Shoot results

On Sunday, a members and public day at the Juneau Gun Club, 13 individuals participated in a First annual Side-by-Side (double-barrel shotgun) fun shoot. It was a beautiful, sun-rich, early spring Juneau day with temperatures reaching in the mid 50s.

Match rules required using a side-by-side shotgun in two different events. The first event was a standard, 16-yard, 5-post, 25-shot trap event. The second event was a 16-yard continental, 5-post, 25-shot trap event. A continental event is when the “bird” leaves the trap house in is allowed to go high, or wide, or low similar to an actual hunting event.
