2009 Eastern Division [rifle and pistol] Matches results

The 2009 Eastern Division Matches were a success. Half of the team (eight Marines) received medals with five of them returning for competition at Marine Corps Championships being held 6-24 April. Parris Island was the winningest team in Eastern Division.

My awards included a silver medal in individual pistol as well as firing member of both rifle (Elliot) and pistol (Edson) team trophies. It’s ironic how I was the low shooter for the pistol team trophy yet the high shooter for the rifle team trophy. Teams consisted of four firing members, one team captain, and one team coach.

This being my first shooting competition, the “match monkey” had his evil way with me. My adrenaline surged, which is the last thing I needed when staring down iron sights on a rack-grade M16 A2 at 600 yards. I shook like a dog shitting peach seeds. Even my deepest, most serene breaths couldn’t relax me to my pre-match calm. Despite the anxiety, I’m pleased with the results.

Marine Corps Championships combine all the individual medalists from around the Marine Corps: Eastern, Western, Far East, and Pacific. It stands to be quite the event, and I look forward to the challenge.

    Good shooting! Just re-qualled this past week and shot a 232 for 3rd award expert. Was disappointed though because was 7 points lower than last time. But was still the company high for those that went.

    Good job. If you ever get out this way again, we’ll take my Arsenal of Liberty out and you can run them through the paces. I’ve got some old school SA wheelies you might like trying in .44 Special and .45 LC. I’ve got 10mm as well if you want to try that. I’ve got a RR Midlength Handguard M4gery that has a great trigger (sure beats off the rack stuff) among other stuff. Local range is only out to 300 yds (not meters) so we’ll have to shoot in GU area for the longer stuff….

    I was on the 1961-62 Camp Pendelton Rifle and Pistol Team. I have lost the few photos (flood) I had of the team. Would anyone know if there are photos saved from that time. Thanks

      What’s so special about that score in particular? Contact the range where the matches were shoot. They’ll have it on record (hopefully, but it’s been two years).
