Hot Shot ShootOut at H&H
Entries will be accepted through July 28 for the “Hot Shot ShootOut” at the H&H Shooting Sports Complex in Oklahoma City.
Both the firearms and archery tournaments will be limited to 64 entries in each division: men's, women's, and junior's (age 14 and younger).
Shooters will be placed in a tournament-style bracket at random to compete against other shooters. The shooting scenarios change after each round. Contestants do not know in advance what firearm (pistol, shotgun, rifle) they will be asked to use or under what conditions.
The shoot-out begins July 30 and ends with the championship matches on Aug. 11 at the store.
Entry fee is $50 per person for adults and $35 for the junior division. Grand prize winners receive a Smith and Wesson firearm and Hoyt bow.
Girls and Guns
A shooting league just for women is forming in Oklahoma.
The “A Girl and A Gun Women's Shooting League” is launching an Oklahoma chapter. The league is for women who enjoy the shooting sports: pistol, rifle and shotgun.
The league has 11 chapters in Texas and has expanded to Colorado and Virginia. Chapters are scheduled to launch in Louisiana, Alabama and Georgia by September.
The league was founded in Leander, Texas, 18 months ago by when a group of ladies started meeting at a local gun range to shoot guns and socialize.
The Oklahoma City chapter will be based out of the H&H Shootings Sports Complex in Oklahoma City. The chapter will have regularly scheduled shooting events each month.
An organizational meeting is scheduled Thursday beginning at 6 p.m. at H&H, located near I-40 and Meridian.
