19 shooters – some of them coming from as far away as Gander and Clarenville – gathered on Saturday, 15 August, for the Fourth Annual IDPANL Zombie Apocalypse Shoot. For the second year in a row, we enjoyed fantastic weather on the day of the event. Maybe a little too nice, because it made for a very long and hot summer day for both the staff and the participants.

This year, the event was designed as a 3 Gun style competition. This meant that the participants used three different kinds of firearms (rifle, shotgun, and handgun) over the course of the match, and sometimes all of them in a single stage or course of fire. This style of action shooting is growing in popularity, and is likely to remain the standard for future Zombie Shoot events – although we also likely reduce the complexity and physical demands of the individual courses of fire. Even with a prior day to prepare and set up, it is a lot of hard work for a few staff!

Best scores in red.

Congratulations to top shooter D.G., who walked away with his second consecutive Zombie Shoot title, and as usual, made it look easy. Congratulations as well to runners up S.P. (second place) and M.S. (third place).

In keeping with the spirit of IDPA, draws for prizes were made on a random basis, and this year we had some great prizes available, including a Beginners Package for the indoor range at Complete Gun Repair, free annual memberships for both IDPANL and the St. John’s Rod & Gun Club, and some highly sought after IDPANL swag. T-shirts were also available for purchase to support the club and to commemorate the event.

To give you some idea of what this event entailed, several IDPANL members spent more than a few long hours putting together the following promotional video. We hope you enjoy it!

Many thanks to our event sponsors Complete Gun Repair and the St. John’s Rod & Gun Club, as well as to the hard working folks who helped plan the event, and to set up and tear down the stage props. It is your help that makes events like these possible and worthwhile. See you next year!
