The Special Forces Association Buckeye Chapter's first Annual 3 Gun Shoot was a marvelous success.  Although almost none of us had ever been to one, several chapter members competed along side over 20 members of B company, 2nd BN, 19th SFG, as well as several sponsors.  Many other members of B company and their families watched the shoot and enjoyed the hospitality of the great Americans of the Pickaway County Sportsmen, Inc. (PCSI).

The Shoot featured a familiarization fire and "warm up" shooting bay, and four shooting bays each with unique target arrays and obstacles for 3 guns per bay.

Chapter member Mark Scott and a team of volunteers from SFA 45 managed and worked dozens of hours to make this a success.  New Honorary Chapter member Jason Conrad was PCSI's anchor man who managed the competition and set up the multiple target arrays with his volunteers from PCSI and others.  Several Green Berets from B/2/19 volunteered as shooting coaches to civilian shooters.  

Special Forces A Team members recently returned from Afghanistan reunited at the Pickaway County Sportsmen range with retired team member MSG Sean Clifton, whose life they saved on a previous deployment.  MSG Clifton was the first guy through the door on a raid into a Taliban compound, and he took three bullets.

A Special Thank You to all our Sponsors. Without your help we could not make this happen.

 SF Guys had unique opportunity to coach their wives.
