Another successful Rimfire Match Sept25th

Well, the match on Sunday showed what a lousy shooter I am but I sure don't care, because I had a great time. The little bit of rain was just enough to make it interesting. The clouds made it a cool day and just wonderful for shooting. I hope everyone else had as great a time as I did. And a big thank you goes out to Ty and Brian for the great stages you designed and to Ty for getting the scores up so quickly. I know you have to be as tired as the rest of us but you do a great job of the "extra" work after every match. THANKS!

Wendy played a major part in getting them done so quickly.  Glad everyone had fun.

Well then, I must extend a huge thanks to Wendy also. Nice going to the two of you. Our club wouldn't be anywhere near as great if you two weren't so active. Thanks a bunch for guiding me along too.

Another great match! Haley

Another great match! Haley and I both had a great time. Thanks so much to everyone for their hard work. Was a lot of fun getting the 3 full stages in.

Hope to see you all next month.

Thank you for the kind words

Thank you for the kind words Lynn, I have fun shooting with you guys. The  weather was sure nice, the little rain was a treat helping keep the dust down. Everyone did a great job keeping the targets panted and keeping in the groove of who shot next and was ready, enabling us to shoot another stage.

Hey Gary, Great Showing, You

Hey Gary,

Great Showing, You showed me what i need to work on. I finished 11th in rifle? That was disappointing. I will still enjoy giving it a go next month. Trigger job on the rifle should be in order for me. I hope Hailey was not too discouraged. Her time does not reflect her shooting ability. With good running equipment she will be right there with the rest of us. It is crazy how all you need is reliable equipment and you can show well especially as others will have issues. For next month I will concentrate on bringing reliable equipment. Watch out guys. Your ^#@ is mine. bwahahaha.

I shot on the other squad and

I shot on the other squad and had a great time.  The person that I noticed that was shooting well was Tracy Niemela.  She had some great runs with the rifle and sure enough when I saw the results she was 4th overall in the rifle stages.  Mark Hicks

Just have to join in and

Just have to join in and thank Ty, Wendy and Brian for a great job!! I had my daughter Jill with me for her first time at any kind of match and she was not familiar with my guns. Brian was very helpful and patient with her. After looking at the scores I was kind of bumed out  but going over all the stages and comparing everything, I guess it was not too bad for a revolver and a Winchester 62 Pump. Going back to the 10/22 and Mark II next time (too much pressure for an old guy) But hey I was first in the Manual Class LOL

A friend will bail you out of jail ,,, A true friend will be there sitting next to you saying "Damn, that was fun!"

hehe, Dave feel free to

hehe, Dave feel free to continue to dominate the manual class. Leave your semi auto at home. One less person for me to worry about in limited. I have got to look out for myself. I would also like to vote that Lynn continues to run his lever action in the spirit to keep that division alive.  Limited is way overrated.  Gary also would make a great competitor in the manual class. Dave can Gary borrow your revolver? It would be great to see him and you go at it in manual. Now If I could get Clem to move over to Open I may have a chance in Limited. lol

Clear the way here I come!

Ty, you got me thinking. I

Ty, you got me thinking.

I could break out my old cowboy hat, dust off the old double holster and my twin revolvers and my trusty lever action......

Hmm, maybe I had all that stuff when I was eleven, don't think I have it anymore. I did look good in that back in the day though!

Crap! I forgot about Mark

Crap! I forgot about Mark H.

What are we going to do about Mark Hicks. There has got to be a rule against shooting that fast. Ideas?

I'm not sure if the blindfold

I'm not sure if the blindfold on the left eye would help slow him down or not. But we definitely need to get that blindfold for Brian. Dang, can't slow that man down at all. Good thing he is in Open.

And I should have brought that lever last Sunday. I was going to and just plain forgot. I'll be bring it again though, it was just too much fun not to be bringing it again.

Can you run optics in Manual?

Can you run optics in Manual? Got a 77/22 with scope... get a few mags and mebbe i'd give it a whirl. I CAN work it pretty slick.

Yes, Manual is a special

Yes,

Manual is a special category. Like JR or Lady

You can run manual in the Open Division. There are only 2 Divisions. Open and Limited.  Optics or Comp or Both = Open. Cowboy (single action) is a special category like "Manual" . We can also have a Special Catagory like "super sexy dude". I dont you if you qualify for that one but it is still possiblelaugh. Dave ran a double action revolver with iron sights. That put him in limited / Manual because his rifle was also a manual (lever, pump, or bolt) with Iron sights.  Don't shoot that bolt. Come out and wear out one of my guns. You get the best of both worlds. Fun and no guns to buy. I can also guarantee you will have no problem one fingering with my 2.5lb trigger.

I will be expecting the Pres. to shoot with us next month. smiley

The one that you see with.

The one that you see with. Either that or tie both hand behind your back. You have to untie them after the buzzer and before you start shooting. That way maybe someone can catch you! Ha Ha Ha
