2017 Pyramyd Air Cup Overview Video Transcript:
Hey guys we're here at the 2017 Pyramyd Air cup in Midvale, Ohio. This is probably going to be the largest field target and air gun competition in the country this year, we have a hundred competitors for the field target, we got a bunch more for the gunslinger. It's gonna be a lot of fun this weekend, we have national champions and world champions, we got everything across the board, lots of shooters. Let's go check it out.
Tom Holland- This is probably one of the premier events in my opinion, in the country. I've been to national championships and some other Grand Prix's, it's the most impressive. What Pyramyd does for the average shooter is amazing, you get to see people you haven't seen in a year or two or even longer, and it's just a great event.
Hector Medina- You have a lot of nice people here, it's all the Pyramyd Air people, and you have the vendors, and you have the shooters, and it's it's a lot of good vibes, it's a great place to be.
Ray Apelles- I keep coming back to the match because it's just a whole bunch of great people, there's the potential for some winning some really great prizes. That's not the big thing though. The thing is the good camaraderie and the great competition.
Bruce Scott- I am finding the event incredibly fun and well run. The course here is beautiful, the competitors are all extremely nice. I'm having a great time.
Eric Brewer- Overall the event I love it, cover this, that's yeah there's prizes, the benefit of coming here and seeing the people in field target being that the field target community is really supportive and this location and venue is great, it really is. I enjoy it.
Shooters ready in three, two, one, go!
Bill Rabbitt- The biggest challenge of gunslinger is staying focused. Trying to avoid what you're hearing your opponent is doing. you're hearing their shots you're hearing the crowd behind them going ooh and ahh, and you just got to stay focused and keep your rhythm up.
You got to get a gun that loads pretty easily, and then practice your technique, and dropping it in there, and going back to shooting and try to keep your eye on the scope. And keep your eye on the scope and lower and they say that's the difference.
Bill Rabbitt- My favorite part of the gun sling is when it's all done, when that last chicken falls over and you can walk away from the lane and calm down.
Alright guys, that about wraps it up for the 2017 Pyramid Air Cup here in Midvale, Ohio. It's been an absolutely awesome weekend of air gunning, we've seen a lot of great gunslinger matchups, gave away some big cash prizes, those winners also saw some great field target shooting with absolutely phenomenal talent and introduced a lot of people to the sport of air gunning. It's been a phenomenal weekend, I want to say thank you to all of our sponsors and all of our staff that helped out over the course of the weekend, give us some incredible prizes. It's an absolutely phenomenal time guys, you definitely need to check it out in 2018. For the full results go to PyramydAircup.com. For the Insyder guys, I'm Tyler Patner, we'll see you next year.
I would like to get into this air gun competition. I have several airguns. What would you recommend for an excellent competition airgun. Do the airguns featured here come with optics? Thanks for any suggestions.
You'd need to research what class of Field Target you want to shoot in. There are different requirements for each class. And for gunslynger, it really comes down to what you are comfortable and confident in. Read the rules and see what divisions you want to compete in.
Does the $100 package include the lunches and banquet?
Yes, for the shooter.
I shoot NRA air rifle Silhoutte with distances being 20yds.,30yds.,36yds & 45 yds. for the Rams.What are your four Silhoutte distances?Tkx,H.A.
10, 25, 40 and 55 yards. Bear in mind, the gunslynger is nothing like traditional silhouette. It's shot from a bench (or any other position you may prefer) and is done head to head....fastest shooter to knock them all down, wins and advances to the next round.
