Heck, never place blame on yourself! It's the ammo, it's the wind, it's the gun, it's the sun moving behind a cloud (or out from behind one), it's someone talking too loud behind the line, it's someone who's walking by 10 feet behind you, it's the type of powder you're using to coat your front or rear bag, it's the fact that your hotel room wasn't up to your standards....

See, those are just off the top of my head!

Honestly, it's rimfire. Nothing makes sense sometimes. Have seen people shoot targets that just blow your mind, and then on the next target, with the same gun, ammo and conditions, they can't hit a bull in the butt. I would never assume how someone shot one target in a match as an indication on how good or bad they are. Not saying I haven't stunk up the joint throughout an entire match, but sometimes things just go crazy on one target and all you can do is hang on tight and hope you don't get thrown into the weeds.

There have been some stretches where Ive thought about selling it all and taking up golf....but I hate playing golf more than I hate my sometimes patterns rather than groups.
Why, just today I threw up the old Caldwell front bag and played a bit, no rear rest/shouldered only, and at 50yd only got some 1/2" 'groups'. Gotta say, I was disappointed looking through the 16x.....
Time was I would have been thrilled.
