On May 28, 2016, in rain and cold conditions (2.0 C) Mike Nielsen celebrated shooting his 50,000 P.I.T.A. registered target at North Peace Rod & Gun Club in Fort St. John B.C.   NPR&G is Mike’s home club, and he wanted to shoot his milestone with his fellow club members, friends and family present. Unique to this milestone is that Mike’s 50,000 targets have all been shot on Squad 1, from either post 1 or 5.

NPR&G presented Mike with an embroidered shooting vest marking the occasion, and Les Madsen presented Mike with his P.I.T.A. 50,000 pin and certificate. In appreciation for everyone in attendance, Mike gave out commemorative “shot” glasses, and bought a round for the house. Despite the cold and very wet weather everyone have a great weekend.

27 shooters took part in the event in all with Larry Norbeck coming out as the top overall shooter.

Keep reading to see the scores from the 3-day shoot.
