Saturday and Sunday, July 24th and 25th, the Bismarck/Mandan Rifle and Pistol Association hosted the North Dakota State High Power Rifle Championships at their range near Moffit.

A see-saw battle for the title of North Dakota State High Power Rifle Champion between Dennis Coulter of Grand Forks, Thomas Thompson of Bismarck, and Duane Holien of Cando, kept the attention of 27 of the Stateís top shooters. All are classified as High Masters, and are always at or near the top when scores are compiled. Coulter led after the 200-yard off-hand match with a 190-x out of a possible 200, to Thompsonís 188-1x. Holien was third with a 182-1x, but came back big time when he cleaned the 200-yard rapid fire match with a 200-10x to put him ahead, as Thompson scored 191-6x. Coulter fell behind with a 186-1x, never to be the running for the duration. Thompson re-took the lead with a 199-5x in the 300-yard rapid fire match to best Holienís 193-1x. The 600-yard match saw Holien cinch the title by outscoring Thompson 196-7x to191-0x. When the scores were added, Holien posted a 771-19x, edging out Thompsonís 769-12x. Total possible is 800.

Coby Dalgliesh of Sarles won the Master Class with 762-11x. Our neighbor from South Dakota, Harold Walker of Sturgis, scored an impressive 755-25x to handily take the Expert Class. Sharpshooter David Geyer of Bismarck bested his class with a 717-12x. Aaron Carico of Valley City posted a 692-3x to emerge as the Marksman Class winner.

Jimmy W. Barner of Emerado took home the North Dakota State Service Rifle Championship title with a score of 753-11x. Dennis Coulter of Grand Forks was high Senior, posting a 751-10x.

The Excellence in Competition Match, a service rifle match sponsored by the Civilian Marksmanship Program, was won by Jimmy W. Barner with a 468-10x of a possible 500. In addition to a gold medal, Barner also gained the last points needed to earn the title of Distinguished Rifleman, a National recognition. Russ Theurer of Bismarck captured second and the 8-point leg. Coby Dalgliesh of Sarles took third.

In the Team Match, Forks Rifle Club#1 took first with a score of 1918-50x out of a possible 2000. Forks Rifle Club#2 was second with 1736-24, beating the host Bismarck/Mandan Rifle and Pistol Associationís 1710-19x.
