More than 120 handgun shooters gathered at the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office firing range Oct. 20 for the annual Sheriff Santa Shootout. Over the course of several hours, shooters sent thousands of rounds downrange in the name of charity.

The annual shooting match, along with a golf tournament that is held each year, serves as the fund-raiser for the Sheriff Santa program that provides holiday meals and presents to families in need each Christmas season. The program has grown over the years, and members of the sheriff’s office are encouraged about how many folks they will be able to help again this year.

The handgun match allowed shooters to fire revolvers and semi-automatic pistols at silhouette targets at distances out to 25 yards. A total of 50 shots constituted a round, and shooters were free to shoot as many times as they pleased throughout the day, donating $8 for every round they shot. Food and beverages were provided for those in attendance, and a number of door prizes were given away as well.

When the range finally cleared, and the dust was settled, it was once again Jim Davis who proved he was the best.

In the semi-auto division, Davis scored 499 out of a possible 500 to win the High Master class. Davis put 39 of 50 shots through the “X-ring,” kept another 10 shots inside the 10-ring, and just missed a perfect score with one shot in the 9. Gary Laughlin and Jerry Squier finished second and third, respectively, in the High Master class, as Laughlin shot a 495, and Squier shot a 493.

John Kobert and Larry Sralla each shot a 489 to tie for first in the Master category, but the tie was broken by “X-rings,” as Kobert outpaced Sralla, 32-26. Preston Browning finished third with a score of 483.

In the Expert class, Nathan Drzymala finished first with a score of 478, followed by Tony Arsuaga at 476, and Paul Buford at 474. Brady Pierce won the Sharp Shooter class with a score of 459, followed by Raul Vasquez in second place at 450, and Jordan Seamands in third with a score of 444. Barry Birdwell won the Marksman class with a score of 420, Mel Francis was second with a score of 412, and Steve Martinez finished third with a best score of 408.

In revolver competition, it was Davis once again at the top of the High Master class, shooting another 499, this time with 40 “X-ring” hits. Sralla finished second with a score of 496, and was the only other shooter to reach the High Master distinction.

Arsuaga took top honors in the Master class with a score of 489, followed by Laughlin and Vasquez, who tied for second with a score of 480. Laughlin won the tiebreaker with 27 “X-ring” hits, as Vasquez settled for third place with 20.

James Ermis won the Expert class with a 479, followed by Buford and Bret Edwards in a tie for second at 473. Buford won the tiebreaker with 18 “X-rings,” compared to 9 by Edwards. Steve Garner won the Sharp Shooter class with a 459, followed by Steve Baker with a 451, and Don Beck with a 431. Larry Keeble finished first in the Marksman class with a score of 416, followed by Larry Louks with a score of 350.

The shoot raised more than $5,000 for the sheriff’s office to use toward helping area families this Christmas.
