Hornady® Hosts 2022 Zombies in the Heartland 3-Gun Match

Grand Island, NE — Nearly 400 zombie hunters armed with handguns, shotguns and rifles converged in Grand Island, Nebraska, June 3-5, 2022, to battle the “undead” during the 10th annual, Zombies in the Heartland 3-Gun Match hosted by Hornady® and the Heartland Public Shooting Park.

Shooters from 20 different states tested their talent in the match that featured 10 stages. Specially developed reactive zombie targets kept shooters engaged and entertained. Participants shot from a suspended motorcycle, through a burned-out auto yard and while sitting in a parked pickup truck where shooters were required to turn the wheel to see targets.

The top shooters in each class were:

  • Tactical: David Hill
  • Open: Jason Carillo, 1st overall
  • PCC: Mike Ferrell
  • Senior: Tony Holmes
  • Super Senior: Jerry Miculek, 4th Overall
  • Lady: Ashlynne Thomas
  • High LE: David Hill
  • High Military: Travis Vogel
  • Junior: Logan Toland, 3rd Overall
