For the fourth time, David Roberts of Vineyard Haven, a retired Oak Bluffs police lieutenant, has won the large and small caliber divisions in the annual Martha’s Vineyard Rod and Gun Club Pistol Championship competition. Last Sunday, at the Rod & Gun Club firing range, Roberts topped all with an average of 340 of 350 in both categories.

Competitors had to shoot from different positions and distances, with varying time limits.

In the large caliber division, Jim Powell and Rick Carlson finished at place and show. Jeff Delong and Jim Dorsey did as well in the small caliber group.
