Sorry guys!
No need to be sorry, unless you control the weather.
Will continue to practice so maybe I will not embarrass myself
so bad.
We appreciate all of the effort to put these shoots on.

I am kind of glad, since I am stuck at work and was unable to make it. My first time shooting a Garand was a year ago at the CMP clinic. What an expensive year it has been

Hopefully the weather improves for the other matches. Can't wait.

Got out to a range anyway today and got the bugs worked out of the PU sniper and got the M96 running really sweet. Thankfully I stocked enough components with my Xmas money to shoot this summer and fall!

Just checking in.

My computer blew up about six weeks ago and I finally got another one built and have been getting back up to speed. So, is everything still on for the 11th? I hope so. My right index finger is starting to itch!

Uff da! gone with the wind for sure today!!

Thanks to Tom, GRRC and all who helped put the match together today. Had a great time WAGing the wind and fighting my scope with a screw loose. At least it didn't rain, only a few flakes of snowish stuff.

Looking forward to the next shoot.

Just got home, myself. Despite wind and bone chill factor, we had a great time. Thanks to everyone for helping and competing. I saw a lot of great shooting today, for any weather conditions.

Hey guys,

Just an FYI about the matches coming up on Saturday (06-15-2013), we will be having an informal 600 yard practice after the matches. Basically I need to sight in a rifle and test a load so if anyone else wants to hang around after the match and shoot 600 with me you would be more than welcome. There is no charge for this but we will split up into two relays and pull targets for each other.

See you there!

Tom

Tom,
What is the format this weekend? I need to sight in my 1903A4gery real soon if there is a sniper match this weekend.

Derek

Strike that last question. I just read the first post and answered my own question. This weekend's match should be fun as I have only shot 5 rounds from the Garand this season. That's right guys... I am winning this one!
