2600 Award

Angle Tree - 2600 Award

Pistols Flame: Reserve Shooters Zero In On Target

The Attleboro, Mass., match, sponsored by the Angle Tree Stone Rod and Gun Club had 326 entries, 162 of which were service masters.

The competition was extremely high with 36 shooters rated at 2600 entered. Of the top 36 marksmen, 26 fired 2600 or more during the match.

The top team competitors were the Marine Corps, the 1st Army and the 2nd Army team.

The Coast Guard Reserve Team was composed of the following men: PARILLO, Robert, BM3; LYNCH, Jerry J., PS3; CDR Richard B. MEMAHILL; LCDR Wallance G. Angel; LCDR Edward J. WALSH; LT Richard ADDIS; and MC FADDEN, Francis X, PSC. They represented the Ninth, Seventh, Fifth, Third and Twelfth Districts. Although the team did not win team awards, it was consistently high in the scoring.

The most noteworthy individual performance was made by PARILLO who set a new National Reserve .45 cal. Timed Fire record with a score of 200-15X. He also fired 2601, his second score of 2600. This excellent firing was done after two years away from competition. This ability is an indication of the exceptional talent of the Reserve Team.

As abruptly as the shooting began, it also ended. The "heat" was off; the marks were made. The time had come for coffee and scuttlebutt while the judges tallied the final scorings.

Victories were celebrated; defeats consoled. For a while it was over — the Attleboro competition was history. All thought was centered on another time, another place. There would be more practice, more discipline, harder training for the National Championships at Camp Perry, Ohio.

The Coast Guard Reservist, Vo. X, No. 8, August 1963
