Janice and Tom Hynes recently competed in the Arizona State Championship of Wild Bunch shooting. This two-day shooting event was held at the Cowtown Range in Peoria.
In her first state championship, Janice placed second in her category. This was Tom’s third consecutive Wild Bunch state championship win.
Wild Bunch shooting is a three-gun competition using antique firearms. Only firearms seen in the Wild Bunch movie of 50 years ago qualify: 1911 pistols, lever action rifles, and 1897 Winchester shotguns. Contestants compete in Old West costumes in categories defined by age, gender, and shooting style.
It’s great fun in the Arizona sun!
