Members of Schaller M & G Gun Club and others from the surrounding area did very well at the Iowa State Shoot held at Cedar Falls, July 25-29.

Jim Pemble of Sac City took off with one of the highest honors, winning the Championship singles trophy. In the Championship singles which is 200 targets, you shoot one hundred first and when everyone gets done, you go out and shoot another one hundred.
