Great thread, Greg!

I also, recently, started attempting to shoot competitively. For the first time in my life, I have a range where matches are held within reasonable driving distance so I can at least practice.

In 2011 (still not having somewhere to shoot matches) I started postal 4P smallbore shooting. Yes, it's an honor system but I started with an inexpensive Mossberg and now shoot a Winchester 52D (that I got from the CMP). In 2 years, I was able to improve enough to consistently shoot expert scores IAW NRA rules. After 30 years of shooting non-competitively, it was, and still is a humbling experience but a heck of a lot of fun.

Encouragement from guys like you makes a world of difference to guys like me. Thanks!
