    Nice day at the Old Colony, though I bugged out after shooting twice in a row. Props to Rich for helping me shoot early- I'm home and getting ready to head to Logan for an overseas trip.

    Shot OK today- 275 in Garand. 85 in awfulhand, which is OK for me. Was enough to beat Franco by a couple points but not enough to beat Rich who shot a 277. DW and David H were up there too. The '65 HXP worked fine- no surprise bad shots and I correctly called all my screw-ups.

    Shot a 271 in Vintage with the K31. Was actually having a pretty good awfulhand but dropped a 6 on one shot that I rushed a bit. No idea how everyone else did as I ducked out to head home.

    Mac, next time you see Franco ask him how much he likes Iceland. I'm connecting through there tonight and mentioned my wife and I might take a few vacation days there sometime. F-bomb count went through the roof, LOL.

    Mountain, I believe you took 3rd in Vintage - David H 272, Franco shot a 271 but beat you by X count. I only shot a 268 - I think I crossfired in standing so I took a miss.

    You were also right up there in Garand, maybe silver, iirc. Rich shot a 277, you were 275, Franco took bronze with a 273? 270 for me.

    Still haven't decided on what I'll shoot for MM but I'm leaning to the .308 Garand since I did not get to shoot it in Vermont. They'll only allow you to shoot 4 GSMM's.

    I may have to shoot the MM AR15, however. I'm going to a wedding reception in CT the night before and I'm thinking my eyes may not be in the best shape the next morning. :confused:

    I’m not certain of what i’ll be shooting, but i’ll definitely be making it to the last match. Maybe the milled Bulgarian/Hungarian AK I picked up last spring?

    Does it have a big, really loud brake on it? If yes, I'll pay Rich to put you between Mac and Franco. [devil] Actually I don't think it will bother mac1911, so we'll put you against the wall with Franco on the other side so we can all hear the more colorful use of the King's English.

    I can't remember if you were there for the match when someone brought a Hakim- was that P? Now that thing was LOUD. I was definitely timing my shots to that I wasn't trying to break the trigger when that thing went BOOM.

    Your right breaks seldom bother me. Especially on the small rifles

    I will be there but probably only have time to shoot one match - MM with the M14. Unless this is gonna be a pussy gun MM match... maybe I should break out my Colt A2 instead?

    As a sidenote, the "new" Lee hand primer I bought to replace the old one that broke sucks. Gave up after 100 223 cases.

    Stupid work.

    Just finishing up getting ready and a few more 308 loads to do.
    Im still undecided
    Garand Match: I have not posted a really good score with the M1 for a while so I feel like I need to try.
    MM I want to do a AR vs M1a match between myselves.
    Not sure what to do or if I will have enough time to shoot both.

    I had to take off after the first string.

    Curious to know who took gold in MM.

    Probably you. I don't think I saw another score that high. I think Mac had a good score in there somewhere, and of course Franco. Laura had a very good score as well.

    I messed up Garand rapids due to a mis-load or light strike then I rushed. Otherwise I was starting with a 100 and I think 6X in slow prone.

    Nice weather, nice turnout, and was great to see everyone. Can't believe we have wrapped up another season of CMP matches, though I hear Ames has one next weekend.

    Thanks; I figured you might shoot a higher score with the MM AR15, or Franco with his M14.

    Ames next Sunday.

    Mobil 1 synthetic. If you’re near Worcester i’ll pack a syringe for you for free...probably last you 10 years if you only have 1 m1 platform rifle

    Nice. So does the offhand score break a tie if the score and X count is the same? It must.
