1st Annual OFCC/TDI Fun 'n Gun HUGE success
By Dan White
This weekend, the first annual (we hope!) OFCC/TDI Fun 'n Gun, which benefited the OFCC PAC and which sold out weeks in advance, was a spectacular event yesterday! After heavy rain on Saturday (set-up day), the weather cleared to a beautiful sunny spring day on Sunday for the event. It was a little chilly in the morning, but warmed up in the afternoon after the wind died down a bit.
Everyone said they had a great time. We had four IDPA-type shooting scenarios
set up (two on the range, two in the live fire houses), the steel plates, the knock-down plate rack, and the force-on-force house set up; giving us a total of seven stations for the shooters to rotate through. At the end of the day, TDI President and chief instructor John Benner gave a surprise prize; the slowest shooter of the day on the plate rack was given a free Tactical Handgun Level 1 training class!
There were several IDPA safety officers volunteers who ran the IDPA stations as well as about 10 TDI instructors who showed up to volunteer their time to run the other stations and serve as bad guys in the force-on-force house. OFCC thanks each and every one of them for their contribution in making this a successful event.
In addition to assisting the IDPA and TDI instructors as group leaders, OFCC senior staff served as parking attendants, grocery & supply-getters, and a performed a myriad of other tasks that to try and ensure this was a successful event for those who generously donated time and money to attend. We had a tremendous time of meeting members.
During the event approximately 85 people carried over 100 guns and fired over 25,000
rounds of ammunition. As expected, despite anti-gun organizations claims that guns are inherently dangerous, nobody got hurt.
In fact, everything went so well that there is a very good chance John Benner will donate
his facility to us again next year, so that we hope this can become an annual
Web Editor's Note: LOTS of news being made on OhioCCW at present. Now that I'm back from TDI, we'll get started on sharing it all with you. Thanks to those who emailed the many news stories on the anniversary of OhioCCW this weekend - we'll make use of the soon.
