Philippe Proulx

This weekend was taking place the 2017 Wild Bunch Championship hosted by the Wild Turkey Posse at the Grenville Fish and Game Club in Prescott, Ontario. Our Squad member, Philippe Proulx won first place in the Modern and Traditional category as well as the only Clean Match Shooter.

Here is what Philippe (Filthy Phil) had to say:

“For this match I used the 45-200gr rnfp for my winchester 1873 in 45 colt and in my 1911 I have shot the factory XMetal Targets .45 acp ammo, and I did managed to shoot a clean match…..in SASS it’s a match without misses and penalty. After that long day in the heat, burning sun and sweat it’s a great feeling to pull this match off. Thanks to the guy at Wild Turkey Posse to put on this match.”

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.”
