The 63rd Rebel Open

Capitol Gun Club
Matt Tyrone

The 63rd Rebel Open at Capitol Gun Club in Jackson, Mississippi looked to be in doubt. Tropical Storm Cindy chose that week to drop over eight inches of rain and topple several trees at the club. Nevertheless, 66 shooters from eight states braved the projected rains to fight for the title – and they were rewarded! Other than a brief, light sprinkle Sunday morning, shooters were treated to beautiful weather and temperatures in the low 80s.

Unfortunately, the weather did interfere with a preliminary doubles event, which was canceled. This event, which will be back next year, consists of 50 targets of shoot-off doubles, except that a shooter shoots two pairs on station four from each direction on each pass. It’s a fun event, and we look forward to incorporating it into future shoots. As the rain cleared on Friday afternoon, the Doubles Championship podium was set by Matt Tyrone (MS), David Thompson (AL) and Jeff Sullivan (MS), with class awards going to Jacob Young (LA – AA), William McKeon (MS – A), Katie Fichtner (OK – B), Dale Klein (AL – C), and Karoyl McCain (MS – D).


Matt Tyrone Doubles and 20 Gauge Champion

Saturday’s 12 gauge event saw 11 shooters vying for the title after posting scores of 99, with Sullivan outlasting David Hebert (LA) and John Howell (AR) for the remaining spots. Class winners were Caile Bradham (MS – AA), Ken Ford (KY – A), Hank Pollard (IL – B), Willie Taylor (MS – C), and Marie Callahan (MS – D). The 20 gauge had 3 perfect scores, with the podium consisting of Tyrone, Bradham, and Trip Jones (MS). Class winners were Sullivan (AA), Ed Hope (TN – A), Hebert (B), Marie Callahan (C), and junior shooter Robbie Ahlstrom (AL – D).


Jeff Sullivan 12 Gauge Champion

As has become custom for most Mississippi shoots, the B,C,D, and E shooters were hosted with a free shoot-off for Academy Sports and Outdoors gift cards, which were won by Andrew Howze (CH - LA), Sarah Davis (RU - MS), and Robbie Ahlstrom (3rd - AL). Another fun for-free event hosted by Capitol Gun Club, the two-man mixed team event, where a AA/A shooter and a B/C/D shooter team up, with handicapped misses, to shoot off for cash. Sarah Davis and Clark Hartness prevailed after a long 20 gauge team shoot-off. During and after the shoot-offs, participants were treated to a fantastic steak dinner (thanks to cooks Kent Moore and Mike Boyd, and club member Bob Crechale of Crechale’s Restaurant).

Sunday morning dawned calm and still with a light drizzle for the 28 gauge. Clark Hartness (MS) posted the first hundred of the day and was joined by only one other shooter, Jeff Sullivan. Hartness bested Sullivan for the prize, and Katie Fichtner beat out 6 other 99s for third. Class winners were Jones, Dr. Jimbo Bearden (MS – A), Joe Marr (IL – B), Marie Callahan (with a 99 in C class), and Lawrence Thompson (MS – D).

The .410 bore saw a lone hundred from Tom Selley, and he left with a shot hat for his efforts. A four-way shoot-off for Runner-up was won by Bradham, with Tyrone third. Jones won AA1, with remaining classes Sullivan (A), Ronald Blalock (KY – B), Andrew Howze (LA – C), and Lawrence Thompson (D).

Trip Jones HOA Champion

Overall, it was a great shoot with good targets, food, friendship, and scores. Capitol Gun Club expresses great appreciation for the shooters who thumbed their nose at mother nature to make the 63rd Rebel a success as the weather cooperated once shooting started! Join us again next year for the 64th Rebel Open!

Sixty-eight shooters from eleven states came to Capitol Gun Club in Jackson, Mississippi to compete in the Catfish Open Championship April 21-23.

Matt Tyrone and Russell Walker shot off 98s for RU and 3d, respectively. Class places went to Jacob Young (AA), Jeff Sullivan (A), Curtis James (B), Andrew Howze (C), and Robert Ahlstrom (D).

Saturday dawned ominously with the threat of a strong cold front looming. Five perfect scores took to the field for 12 gauge champion, with the podium going to Caile Bradham, Sullivan, and Selley, respectively. Places went to John Howell (AA – 100), Jimbo Bearden (A), William McKeon (B – 100), Richard Karstetter (C), Eddie Wilson (D), and Ahlstrom (E). Dale Klein shot his first 25, and his hat was destroyed accordingly. Junior (trap) shooter Christian Dearman also suffered the loss of a perfectly good cap for his first 25.

Capitol’s shoots are marked by side games sponsored by Academy Sports & Outdoors, one being a shoot-off of all B, C, D, & E shooters, who shoot for an Academy gift card. Howze claimed the prize after a long shoot off in a light mist under the lights. While most shooters were lucky enough to contend only with wind rather than rain, the night was capped by an awesome team shoot-off in the rain for the Calcutta, where Miles and Young bested Reynolds McCain and Bradham. Spectators could watch as the shot string plowed through the heavy rains, providing much enjoyment to all except the four shooters and referees. Special thanks to Penn’s Restaurant for catering the shoot with a great catfish and fried chicken dinner.

Sunday brought overcast skies, cooler temperatures, and some good scores. Sullivan out-lasted Andy Pounders and Davis Minton to claim the 28 gauge, with Tyrone (AA), Young (A), Howze (B), Karoyl McCain (C – personal best of 98), and Ahlstrom (D) winning the classes. The .410 bore did not require a shoot-off to set a podium consisting of Tyrone (99), Pounders (98), and Bradham (97). Frank Callahan (AA), Glenn Rickman (A), Curtis James (C), and Karoyl McCain (D) took the classes.
