Virginia State Title Won By McMillan

The 1960 Virginia State Pistol Championship was fired at Quantico on Oct. 14-16, with a fine turnout of 163 competitors. Friday morning (Oct. 14) got off to a slow start due to a very heavy fog which made it impossible to fire the course as it was set up in the program, but with a few changes made, the math got under way on schedule.

The grand aggregate was won by Olympic gold medal winner Capt. William W. McMillan, Jr., USMC, of Quantico, with a 2622-108X. McMillan was pushed all the way by another Quantico shooter, Capt. W. K. Hayden, III, who turned in a 2608-108X to take first Master.

McMillan's guns were a Clark accurized heavy barrel Ruger with Elliason sights, a Colt .38 Special with Micro sights, and an accurized cal. 45 Government Model pistol.

Team match honors went to Ft. Meade's Red Team as they won 2 of 3 events (center-fire, 1126-32X, and 1158-31X in .22 caliber). Quantico won the .45 caliber match with an 1137-43X score.
