Tom Smith won the Rappahannock Pistol and Rifle Club annual centerfire pistol speed event July 8 at the club’s range in White Stone.
The NRA Action Pistol competition consists of five 8-inch steel plates shot from 15 yards, reported Mike Loser. The competitors must knock down the plates using a maximum of six shots.
