FLORESVILLE -- Pistol and revolver shooters from around the area and across South Texas gathered Oct. 19 at the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office firing range for fun, friendly competition, and most importantly, to raise money for the Sheriff Santa program.

The Wilson County Sheriff’s Office’s annual Sheriff Santa Shootout, now in its 19th year, drew a strong crowd of competitors, and raised more money for the Sheriff Santa program.

Participants competed in revolver and semiautomatic classes, and were divided into one of five different skill levels.

In the revolver category, Stephen Moore finished first in the Marksman class, followed by Sarah Seamands. Don Beck was first in the Sharpshooter class, and Steve Garner took home second-place honors. Steve Baker was third. Charles Patnode topped the list in the Expert class, followed by Rusty Valentine in second and Paul Buford in third.

In the Master class for revolvers, it was Mike Hernandez taking home top honors. Ed Becka finished second, and Tony Arsuaga was third. But the scores that impressed everyone came from the High Master class: Jim Davis won top honors, as he shot a 499 out of 500, with 41 “X-ring” hits. Larry Sralla finished second in the High Master class with a score of 493, and Gary Laughlin finished third with a score of 492.

In the semiautomatic category, Raul Vasquez topped the list for the Marksman class, followed closely by Andrew Garner and Brady Pierce in second and third, respectively. Jordan Seamands won first place in the Sharpshooter class, followed by Barry Birdwell and Eric Winkler. Rusty Valentine finished first in the Expert class. Paul Buford was second among the experts, and Tony Arsuaga rounded out the top three.

Ed Becka won first place in the Master class, followed by Gary Laughlin and Larry Sralla.

In the High Master class, it was Jim Davis once again taking top honors with another 499 out of 500. He had 40 “X-ring” hits. Mike Hernandez finished second in the High Master class with a score of 496. The two were the only ones to shoot into the High Master class.

In addition to the shooting competition, a ticket drawing was held. Judd Earley was the big winner of the day, taking home a Bushmaster AR-15 rifle. Manuel Perez won a ladies Consuela bag and wallet, Michael Laughlin won a hunting knife, Don Beck took home a new pair of binoculars, and Alane Tackitt left with some new ladies jewelry.

Funds raised during the event will be used to provide meals and gifts for children and families who may otherwise have nothing at Christmastime.

The shootout is one of two primary fund-raisers for the Sheriff Santa program, which provides food and presents to needy families of Wilson County at Christmastime. Last year, the program assisted nearly 300 families.

Additional help and donations are still being sought.

For more information, or to help with a donation of food, money, or toys, contact the sheriff’s office at 830-393-2535.
