The Wheels on the Sierra Mobile Go Round and Round

Written by Sierra Bullets Media Relations Manager Carroll Pilant

Sierra_Mobile_April_2014WPSince the Sierra Bullet’s ’05 Equinox was purchased in 2004, I have been to over 150 major matches in the US, in 25 states. (For small club matches, I drive my personal vehicle.)  It would have been several more matches if I hadn’t got knocked 25′ out of a tree in 2010 that laid me up for 2 months and from getting my knee replaced in 2013 which laid me up for 3 months. I spent many, many nights in motel rooms and a lot of nights I drove all night either because of time restraints or just to keep from having to spend another night in a motel. It has been serviced about 65 times. I have been stopped twice in it. Once in Arkansas for a burned out headlight and once just a week ago in Arizona for a burned out license plate light.

**The Sierra Mobile had 200,697 miles on it when the picture above was taken in April 2014.  Larry Anderson was our hat winner in our mileage guessing contest.
