Here are the pics that my Wanda and I took today.

Here is me going prone on the first course.

Here is another shot.

Wanda decided to take the high road on her first run. This is also her first trip out with her new M1 Carbine.

Another shot of her on the first run.

And one more. This is also her Sarah Conner impersonation with her black hat.

Here she decides to drop down for the last few bad guys, and shows a new improvised firing position. Men, DONT try this at home.

Here is Wendy going prone.

And Wendy again changing postions for a better shot.

With Wanda and Wendy that give us two women who are regular shooters. Both give the guys a run for their money for sure.

On the second course we had a nifty tunnel to crawl through. Half the targets had to be engaged from inside the tunnel, the other half once you came out the end. Here is me just beginning.

Here is Wanda starting on the opposite end first. Being a lefty, she had to go the opposite direction of the righty's.

Wanda just entering the tunnel.

Here is Wanda in the tunnel firing.

The following is an event that mere pictures cannot describe. It all started when Sam was shooting in the tunnel. To give him some "distraction", A couple of guys began pounding on top of the plywood, making a bit of a racket for Sam inside the tunnel.
When it came time for Andy to shoot in the tunnel, in the spirit of brotherly love, and to help Andy become a better shooter, Neil decided to give him a bit of a "0distraction", by firing his .45 right over the top of the tunnel while Andy was in it. Before anyone says anything, it was completely safe, as there was no way Andy could come up and be hit, and Neil's muzzle was well forward of Andy's body. Neil would not have done it had it not been 110% safe to do so.
In that spirit, and to return the favor, When Neil went to shoot the tunnel, Paul just happen to find a bottle of cold water (no idea WHERE he got it from). While Neil was shooting, Paul was gently pouring ICE COLD WATER down his back, and arms. To add to it, Matt did the same thing Neil did to Sam, only he used his full auto M4, ripping off some nice bursts every time Neil went to fire. Here are a few of the pics Wanda got of Paul and Matt giving Neil his "distractions".

Here is where it started. Matt is kneeling to the left firing the M4, and Paul is kneeling to the right with the water.

Another view.

And here he is almost finished.

And Neil finishing up.

Here is me keeping score. Couldnt run&gun much today.

Neil and I conversing before I take a run.

Neil and I receiving tips from the peanut gallery.

Thats all I have. Just couldnt get out and get many as Wanda and I both werent feeling the best in the world.

Fortunately, our pastor encourages the wife and I to do it. Its only one Sunday a month, so its not too bad.

I know you didn't get "Wanda" clearance on posting the picture of her entering the tunnel, but thanks! (Just teasing!)

Actually, I did. I didnt want to post it for my own selfish reasons, but she said to go ahead that no one would pay it any attention.

Nice pics!
Link Posted: 6/29/2003 7:20:02 PM EDT
I took some 35mm pics during the shoot. When I have them developed this week I will scan them and send them to Neil for whatever posting is needed.

Remind your wife that not only does the Bible say:

Heb 10:25
25 Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another-and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

It also say's this:

Matt 5:14-16
14 "You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.

And this:

Eph 5:22-24
22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

Smile now!

I'm still trying to understand the "let me" part.

Great pics Hawkeye! Great shoot this month. I'm glad I was able to help out with the targets. Getting down 'n' dirty was damn good fun! Let's just hope for a little less humidity and heat next time
Link Posted: 6/30/2003 6:43:35 PM EDT
Man oh man was I filthy. Best shower I have taken in a long time. Good shoot guys.
Link Posted: 6/30/2003 6:59:17 PM EDT
So it wasn't just me being one of the older guys! I was sore, tired, dirty and hungry. Loads of fun though.

Who was the nutcase that designed those COF's in the mud?


Link Posted: 6/30/2003 7:35:22 PM EDT
Give me a day or two to get the pics up everyone. We downloaded them all to Pauls laptop at the range. But I forgot to get them on to my computer when he dropped me off. I should be picking the cd with all of them on Wednesday. Sorry for the delay. I have about 100 pics!
Link Posted: 7/2/2003 8:11:02 PM EDT
You bastards are merciless on "first timer fat guys" like me. I mean, who came up with the idea of putting a fat guy like me in a TUNNEL?!?!?!

I belive the comment was made about me in the tunnel looking like a "St. Benard going through a doggie door".

It was great fun though. It was my first time and I am HOOKED. I apprecaite all you experienced fellers giving me all the great advice. I learned a lot, and look forward to learning more! Thanks again!

Where's Neil? No pictures, no scores. There was a girl with him at the shoot, has he been kidnapped?

Time to return the favor! Shooting the .45 while Fulda is crawling

Pounding on the overhead cover while he's shooting

In the end its all good! Me and Fulda

Norm had a problem with the rifle and finished up with the Sig. I was impressed at how good the shots were!

rough nite for Matt too!?

Go Wendy!

Stephen is in my favorite picture this month!

Ah crap man, I try to get one or two of everyone! Im sorry man. I knew I left a few out this time. I was a little preoccupied this month. Im sorry. Next time Im going to take a picture of you bringing the donuts!!!
Link Posted: 7/7/2003 4:06:36 AM EDT
Ha, no problem Neil. Thanks for putting on a good shoot, as always.

You could also get a pic of me blowing up balloons next month, as I have been dubbed the "Official FDCC Blower."

I know I am setting myself up for some jokes here - fire at will.
Link Posted: 7/8/2003 2:11:30 PM EDT
Don't feel too bad - they didn't get any pics of me either. Awwww...
Link Posted: 7/8/2003 4:37:45 PM EDT
Just make sure that I'm not in that pic blowing up a balloon, too... MisterGreens deserves that title alone

Head to Head.. I love it.

By the way, after reviewing the photos, excellent finger discipline by all those involved.

The only reason you love it is because you kicked my butt again!!!

What's with that one guy who didn't want to get dirty? He'd got his butt shot off in a real fight, literally!
Link Posted: 7/10/2003 2:39:22 AM EDT

Looks like some nice one-handed shooting though...
