Shooters from the United States, Canada, Brazil, Australia and Paraguay finished a week-long competition Saturday in the International Handgun Metallic Silhouette Association world championships held at the Oklahoma City Gun Club.
Shooters had to knock down heavy metallic silhouette targets of chickens, pigs, turkeys and rams from various distances up to 200 meters.
Distances ranged from 10 to 18 yards for air pistols and 25 to 100 yards in the small-bore division (pistols chambered for .22 long rifle cartridge only).
In the big-bore division for powerful centerfire handguns only, the distances ranged from 50 meters to 200 meters.
Shooters had a 30-second load command and two minutes to fire upon a group of five targets.
Seven Oklahomans won IHMSA world championships: Scott Thompson of Mustang; Gary Crews of Chandler; Woody Liddell of Luther; Jim Fields of Warr Acres; Ryan Schuff of Moore (won five titles in the junior divisions); Shaun Murray of Enid; and John Anderson of Cordell.
