Pinion, McMillan Top State Pistol Shooters

State shooters at the California Pistol Championship Matches held over the weekend in San Francisco were led by 1stLt. William W. McMillan, Jr., of the Corps' Pistol Team, and CWO Offutt Pinion, a member of the Navy Team stationed at Camp Matthews.

Lt. McMillan fired a grand aggregate score of 2620 to top the field of competitors, while CWO Pinion emerged in second spot with a 2605.

Breaking 2600 for the first time in his shooting career, Mr. Pinion joined the slim ranks of the nation's top pistol shooters who have attained this mark.

The Marine Pistol Team, composed of Lt. McMillan, MSgts., R. O. Jones, and A. Jurado, and Sgt. F. W. Filkins, won the .45 and .22 caliber matches with scores of 1129 and 1167, respectively, and placed second in the .38 caliber shoot.

For the first time in 39 years San Francisco's weather-perfect September record was marred by rain, but despite the downpour Lt. McMillan copped the .22 caliber grand aggregate with 886x900, the .38 caliber grand aggregate with 877x900 and the .38 timed and rapid fire matches with scores of 199-197x200, respectively.

Mr. McMillan placed first in the .22 caliber slow fire competition with 193x200 and finished first in the rapid fire .22 match with a "possible" of 200. As an indication of the stiff competition encountered, Sgt. Jurado, while only one point behind with a score of 199x200, was in fifth position.

In .45 caliber competition, Sgt. Jurado placed second in the slow fire match, while Lt. McMillan was fourth over the National Match Course. Rapid fire fire statisitics with the .45 found the Lieutenant in third spot and a score of 857x900 placed him second in aggregate firing.

Sgt. Jurado was fourth in .45 caliber aggregate firing with a 854x900.

Sgt. Jones and Lt. McMillan were second and third over the .38 caliber National Match Course with scores of 292 each.

Sgt. Jones copped third place in .38 aggregate firing with an 867x900.

Yesterday the Corps' Rifle Team commenced practicing for the Mojave Desert Match at Barstow to be held over the weekend of Oct. 12.
