Very fun day today at Granby. Learned a lot and have a new respect for long range shooters. It’s definitely a lot harder then it looks. As with any match there is a winner and a person in last place. I can joyfully say the person in last place was me with a whooping one point. Ha! I need to work out my dope a little better and get some shooting bags. Next match I see two points in my future. [smile]
I’m sorry I didn’t get to meet you today, it was a fun match indeed. We had a great turnout of new shooters so many in fact, I fear some didn’t get as much help as they should have.

Hopefully they’ll run some non-match, dope gathering and practice days. In the mean time, I’ll try to help as much as I can here.

Some photos from today:

One point is better than zero points :)

Congrats on staying with it and going to the competition.

That was a great day,
I was in squad 1 with mostly new shooters to prs who were shooting their first match. I would have liked to meet some of you, hopefully I will meet Dave Marshall someday, I probably have seen you but don't know you. I see your posts on FB. It was a long day. I'm glad I got to try out a new gun I built, now I need some more time with it to fine tune things and work out a good load. It was challenging at 1000 with some wind for sure but I managed a couple hits. Finished the day with 26. I'll take it with a new rifle.

At least you had fun trying. I'm sure you had more than one hit. Yes double your score next time, onward and upward. There is a lot to this sport. It's kind of like fishingto me, always learning and improving.
