Fantastic Sunday match for John Schneiderbanger!


“What a fantastic Sunday match we had! There was a lot of fast shooting in this 10 Stage match in 36C weather.

The guns were hot, the shooters were hot and so was the XMetal Squad! I managed a strong 4th overall finished in Standard Division.

This was an excellent warm-up match for the 2017 IPSC Canadian National Championship taking place in Calgary 17-24 July.”

Check out my stage highlights’ video from the Brandon match.

Yves St-Laurent finished first in production


Saturday was the 4th game of the Xtreme 2017 league in Maska. Last game for me before National 2017 in Calgary.

The game went well, I finally feel ready for the National! I finished first in production and 5th all classes combined.

Thanks to XMetal Targets for their support. The paragon balls 9mm 147 gr are simply perfect for a “soft recoil” and an unparalleled precision!

7th place for John Schneiderbanger

“I finished 7th Overall in Standard Division in the 2017 IPSC Alberta Provincial Championship in Brooks, Alberta.

I was not just shooting against the best of the Albertan Standard Division competitors but they are also some of the Top Standard Division Competitors in Canada!!   The course of fire and competitors were tough!!

I had a XMetal Targets display set up for all 3 days during the championship match.  There was lots of interest in the XMetal targets.  People were extremely impressed with the designs of the targets and their quality.”

Summer Fun 2017 FRPC, Kingston Ontario

“Last week my 6th Summer Fun at FRPC in Kingston, Ontario. I did to many mistake to achive my goal, but at least, I know on what to focus for my next practice before the National in Alberta!

My ammo for this match was a little bit too hot, I got a power factor of 136, an average speed of about 935fps. But the velocity and precision of the ammo was very consistant. Still using the “Paragon 9mm-147gr RN” from XMETAL TARGETS.

Thank you very much for their huge support ans also for their support in the IPSC sport. XMETAL TARGETS was a sponsor for the Manitoba provincial, their will be a sponsor for the National and IPSC Quebec.”
