Practice: TQ-14 50-foot paper, indoor
Date: 3-8-17
Class: AA/AAA
CZ-452 Silhouette
Weaver T-16
SK Standard Plus

Round #1:
Chickens - 7
Pigs - 9
Turkeys - 7
Rams - 8
TOTAL - 31

This score matches my PR for indoor practice from last month.


Round #2:
Chickens - 5
Pigs - 9
Turkeys - 6
Rams - 7
TOTAL - 27

Chickens really got me this round, although the Turkeys didn't help either.

We've got a smallbore match this weekend so I'll post scores afterwards. Last week's air rifle match got rained out.

80% to 90% chance of rain all day today so they cancelled the match. That's two in a row, dagnabbit.

Practice: TQ-14 50-foot paper, indoor
Date: 3-15-17
Class: AA/AAA
CZ-452 Silhouette
Weaver T-24
SK Standard Plus

Round #1:
Chickens - 8
Pigs - 9
Turkeys - 5
Rams - 6
TOTAL - 28

Did well on Chickens and Pigs, not so much on Turkeys and Rams. Except for one shot on Turkeys, all misses were less than one bullet's width away.


Round #2:
Chickens - 8
Pigs - 8
Turkeys - 6
Rams - 8
TOTAL - 30

Much better on the Rams this time. Again, most misses were less than a bullet's width away except for one on Pigs and two on the same Turkey.

The Louisiana State Smallbore match is coming up in a week and a half so I gotta get I good shape for that.

Round #1:
Chickens - 7
Pigs - 9
Turkeys - 7
Rams - 8
TOTAL - 31

This is the exact same score I got on 3-8-17 right down to the same count of each animal. Weird, but it ties my indoor PR so I'll take it!


Round #2:
Chickens - 5
Pigs - 7
Turkeys - 6
Rams - 8
TOTAL - 26

Wobble really started to creep in on this second round and I threw four shots because I failed to focus on my followthrough.

This was my last practice before the Louisiana State match this weekend. Wish me luck!

MATCH #1
DIVISION- HUNTER
SHOOTER CLASS-AA
FIREARM-CZ 452 SILHOUETTE
OPTIC-WEAVER V-24 @24x
AMMO-CCI SV
WEATHER-OVERCAST, UPPER 40'S, WIND <5 MPH

CHICKENS-6

PIGS-3

TURKEYS-3

RAMS-6

TOTAL-18

Sighting in on the rams, shots were all over the place. I had zero confidence at the line that I would get any hits. And proceeded to hit the first 4. Go figure.

Here are my scores and report from the Louisiana state match. We had heavy thunderstorms rolling through most of the day on Saturday but it was sunny and nice on Sunday.


Date: 3-25-17, Standard Rifle
Class: AA
CZ-452 Silhouette
Weaver T-24
SK Standard Plus

Round #1:
Chickens - 4
Pigs - 7
Turkeys - 3
Rams - 7
TOTAL - 21

Round #2:
Chickens - 7
Pigs - 5
Turkeys - 6
Rams - 6
TOTAL - 24

Aggregate score of 45 got me 1st place for AA.


Date: 3-26-17, Hunter Rifle
Class: AAA

Round #1:
Chickens - 5
Pigs - 8
Turkeys - 2
Rams - 6
TOTAL - 21

Round #2:
Chickens - 6
Pigs - 7
Turkeys - 4
Rams - 5
TOTAL - 22

Aggregate score of 43 put me in the low end of the AAA pack.


I had high hopes for this weekend considering the recent progress I've made in my other shooting. Unfortunately my biggest issue was having a better than normal hold but when breaking the shot I would twitch some other muscle to pull the shot off target. Sometimes low-left, sometimes high, etc. It was so frustrating to be right there and then to mess it up when breaking the shot. I've got five weeks to work out the kinks before the Texas state championships.


Big thanks go out to Dustin Flint and the rest of the Louisiana crew for putting on a great match with good food and good people. Another big thanks goes to Adam Braverman of Lapua/SK for donating five bricks of Lapua Center-X and five bricks of SK Rifle Match for prizes. Adam's/Lapua's support for silhouette has been above and beyond any other company and they deserve our support in return.

Match 1
1/5 scale NRA approved monthly match
Smallbore standard rifle
8 chickens, 8 pigs, 5 turkeys, 7 rams
28 total, no 5 in a row, first time I have shot in class for quite a while, I think I have offhand Rimfire Central matches to thank for that.
