Brassmasters Pistol Club, Strawberry Festival Hosts Pistol Match

BARBOUR COUNTY -

The Strawberry Festival entered its final day and there were plenty of events still going on.

The festival and Brassmasters Pistol Club hosted an 18-hundred pistol match on Sunday.

18 shooters competed using small caliber handguns or large caliber handguns in different styles of match play.

In the end, shooters earned classifications from marksman and sharp shooters to expert and master class shooters.

"The joy of learning a sport and getting better, and your really competing against yourself to better your scores, and of course you want to beat the other shooter. The real idea is to improve your own marksmanship skills by practice," said Bill Thurman.

Brassmasters Pistol Club will host a regional shooting match in two weeks.
