my old nemesis, dr. moriarity (aka rs39) and i met at the john c. garand/military bolt action match this morning.
the day dawned perfect for a duel between adversaries! cool...no breeze and the 200 yard range was in perfect condition.
we chose or weapons...he, a swuisse k31 in pristine condition. myself, a swedish m96 that likewise looked hardly used.
damnit! i HAD him going into the offhand leg!!! damnit! my rapid fire prone score was higher than my slow fire prone score (the lesson here: don't think...just shoot!)!
for my offhand leg i tossed a shot out and scored poorly with the other 9. curses! no 10's and only 2 9's...way to shoot, campy!
shot down in flames again!
ah! but, we all had fun! met a new guy from marion, ohio...saw banker billy, ohfal and the entire crew of local high power, garand and smallbore shooters.
winter's a'comin' boys! get out there and shoot some, ya hear??!!
