Top Shooter Highlight Pistol Meet

World record holder Bill McMillan was expected to be the featured attraction today and tomorrow as the Pima Pistol Club plays host to the 20th annual Arizona Pistol Championships.

In addition to McMillan, some 34 other master shooters - including some of the best marksmen in the nation - will be competing at the Pima Club range on West Anklam Road.

McMillan, a Marine Corps' lieutenant, set a new world's record only last month with a 2645x3000 round. He set another world mark in the national championships with the .45 by hitting 291x300.

In addition, he holds a national rapid fire record for the .22, and the Marine Corps' Lauchheimer record.

Among other entries are Fred Filkins, also of the Marine Corps, and Bill Joyner of the Border Patrol. Both, as well as McMillan, won titles in the Mid-Winter Championships at Miami, Fla.

Joyner, who won the .45 aggregate at Miami, will be joined by two Border Patrol teammates, Bill Toney Jr. and Presley O'Gren.

Among other Tucson entries in the tourney are Melton R. Rogers, George Irwin, Tony Lerua and T.Sgt. William H. Hino.
