“The 2012 South Carolina IDPA Championship built on the foundation laid last year and surpassd my expectations with eleven stages -no gimmicks and with a high degree of accuracy required,” Gary commented after the match. “With the Carolina Cup fast approaching, this focus on THE fundamentals of placing accurate fire on target was well received. The staff was professional and courteous and even the weather cooperated.Thanks to Jerry James and Ron Rhoden of the Skip-J Range for a first class match!”
Morgan Allen won his division in the Enhanced Service Pistol Division and had this to say on the match, “As expected, the 2012 South Carolina IDPA Championship exemplified the need to vary each competitor’s training to include the range conditions one might find when performing for score. This year’s stages were not complex, but contained enough tight shots an other obstacles that shooters needed to diligently manage their pace througout. Congrats to my teammate, Gary Byerly on a great performance and to Jerry James and Ron Rhoden for hosting another very well designed and managed match.”
