2012 Wild West Shootout

The 2012 Targets for Christ Wild West Shootout was a tremendous success thanks to the abundant blessings of Jesus Christ and the selfless generosity of our many sponsors, which are listed on both on our home page and through-out the website. We also want to give special thanks to our good friend Larry Gatlin, Grammy Award-winning Country Music singer who each year generously donates his time to perform at the event. In 2012 Larry took off from his booked schedule to fly in the morning of the event to encourage the shooters, pass out free shooting advice and perform a private concert for the participants.

The 2012 event raised in excess of $80,000 for our beneficiaries AIM Adoptions and Hope for Orphans.

Each shooter received a Browning Shell bag embossed with Targets for Christ logo, John Deere Gimme Caps, eye and ear protection donated by Ag Power in McKinney TX. Each Sponsor received beautifully crafted Browning Duffle Shooter bags, donated by David Smith of Alpine Range in Ft Worth.

The unique format allowed for a 50 target sporting clay course, which was used to handicap each shooter for the 50 target super sport main event. This format resulted in 24 shooters vying for the HOA EZGO Golf Cart, which was won by Bryan Hoefling with Gibraltar Team in the third round of the shoot-off.

Adam Jauch with 10-2-4 Hunting Ranch a 2012 sponsor of the event, was runner up, winning the Browning Citori 625 Sporting 12 Gauge Over/Under shotgun.

Trisha Hillman, the owner of Copacetic Properties, LTD also a 2011 and 2012 sponsor of Targets for Christ won the 2012 John Deere 525i Gator raffled during the awards presentation of the event.

Targets for Christ also presented 15 awards including trophy buckles, knives and trophy platters for the top three shooters of each of the five Lewis Classes and also paid out $3,000 in prize money to 3 shooters including Michael McGill of Ag Power and Jayson Campbell of The Armstrong Company during the A-B and C-E Wolf Chase side games.

Targets for Christ expresses special thanks to Scott Robertson and Jeannie Almond of Elm Fork Shooting Park whose hard work and customer service made this a fantastic event for everyone involved. The course was masterfully planned in a way that was both difficult for experts yet extremely fun and shooter friendly for the novice and not so much experts.

Please come out and enjoy the fun for the third Annual Wild West Shoot-out on October 3, 2013. This year’s goal is to raise $100,000 for AIM Adoptions while providing in excess of $50,000 in gifts, awards and prize money.

Serving Christ through our care and service to others
