Oregonís Anderson Claims Limited-10 Shooting Title

General Competition



Oregonís Anderson Claims Limited-10 Shooting Title

SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Wash. ó In the run-and-gun sport of practical shooting, Chuck Anderson of Newberg, Ore., claimed the Limited-10 division title at the 2010 U.S. Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) Area 1 Regional Handgun Championship, this past weekend.

Anderson, who is ranked a Master, the second highest skill level in the sport, won four of 11 stages on his way to posting a final score of 1156.9890 and outpacing his nearest competitor by nearly 47 points.

ďChuck shot a very solid match, winning four stages and finishing in the top three on all but one. This was a well deserved victory and I join his fellow competitors in congratulating Chuck on taking the Area 1 Limited-10 title,Ē said Michael Voigt, president of the U.S. Practical Shooting Association.

Finishing second with one stage win and a final score of 1109.9952 was Canadian shooter Clint Milburn of Surrey, British Columbia. Alaska's Bill Filiaga of Fairbanks took third by winning the last three stages of the match and posting a final score of 1092.9985.

Rounding out the top five were Russ Shaver of Mission Viejo, Calif., and Brad Bolz of Kirksville, Mo., who each won a stage and finished fourth and fifth shooting scores of 1015.2208 and 1000.4506 respectively.

Bill Cooper of Burbank, Wash., won the Senior Limited-10 title and finished 11th overall with his final score of 820.6178 points.

The match, which was held June 24-27 at the South East Idaho Practical Shooters range in Idaho Falls, Idaho, drew 325 top shooters.

Area 1 is one of the eight USPSA shooting regions in the country and is made up of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming, but shooters from 12 other states, as well as Canada, competed for the championship title in USPSAís Open, Limited, Limited-10, Production, Revolver and Single Stack divisions.

The sport of Practical Shooting was formally established in 1976 but traces its roots back to the 1950ís and the quick draw ďleather slapĒ competitions that grew out of America's love affair with the TV westerns of that era.

Today the sport boasts more than 19,000 shooters and represents the upper echelon of the shooting sports with many of its top competitors actively training law enforcement and military units on the shooting techniques and equipment developed in competition.
