Being Perry, I've been through more than a few rain/lightning delays. The most chaotic was when it poured heavily during 300 rapid-fire. Very few could read the chalk boards. "They" spent too much time trying to figure out who had received their scores and who did not. "They" should have just scrapped the whole 300 yard thing and do it over.

Big long lines trying to re-squad and such; Gary Anderson looked at the situation and opined, "Good thing they are High Power shooters, if they were Smallbore shooters there would be a riot."

I think this was a leg match.

I believe it was the AMU that asked and they received.

Not sure about that. I remember Emil being annoyed at it. I could misremember. I mostly remember pouring rain and a dramatic drop in temperature.

In my opinion, Praslik (sp?) was the best "wind" coach ever. After he was gone, the Army didn't win almost everything in Team Matches.

As for sighters, all I hear is crickets from the naysayers.

Default P 100 sighters

Apparently my memory is faulty...noted rifle shooting historian Hap Rocketto states that the same 30 shot course of fire as today was used beginning in 1977, and from 1977 through 1996 included 2 sighters at 200 yards. No sighters has been the norm ever since....
Given that was 24 years ago I humbly beg your pardon for misremembering.

I didn't remember sighters in 1996, so my memory ain't so good either.

Today's rules didn't apply in the old days.
My bad, this is the one I wanted to post for posterity.

Louis:

You're talking about rules that changed somewhere between 24-30 years ago.
Alot of the current Shooters haven't been involved in this that long .........
So it's neat to discuss the "old rules" but in some ways it's irrelevant or
"Old day rules don't apply today"

At least it was legitimately "Service Rifle" and "Service Pistol" then. Actually, pre-Johnson it still mostly was with more incremental changes than wholesale.
