Nice shooting. I'm not sure I'll be able to hit the target standing when I get a chance to get out! Stinks being a "cheerleader". I'm still looking for a place to shoot as the TWRA range banned 50yd prone shooting because of morons with their AKs and M4s who can't hit a target to save their life, much less keep all rounds within the range berms.

23's Dad: Nice scores! You too, PWNolan.


clydesdale: Outstanding! Hope to shoot my 52 D or 40X this year. That'll be a new experience as I've only shot light rifle with iron sights. I'll probably have to a variable scope too. No telling until I try and see what magnification will work best all 4 positions at 50 yds.

Thanks! I'd like to try 50 yards but the ranges around here only have benches so no 4P. However, I did shoot an AR-15 today and I'm very tempted to try out the competitive highpower world. It's a bit further drive to the ranges and more expensive ammo but several guys at our club do it so I could get started with good advice straight away.

Our club (Sycamore Sportsman & Conservation Club) has highpower clinics. I can get you info/details if you're interested.

I don't shoot highpower at this point. I shoot smallbore during the winter months, silhouette in the warm months, and CMP rimfire sporter year round. I think that adding highpower to the mix would push me over the edge time and money wise.

Are you coming to the Illinois State 4P? I'm signed up for the Saturday 5pm relay but I can swing by the club if you shoot a different one.

I decided to pass on the IL State match. I thought more guys from my club would be going but as it turns out I don't know of anyone. I could be wrong though. My scores are so sucky I figure that I should work on improving before I shoot a real match anyway. I have a cmp sporter match this weekend and then our Friday smallbore match next week so I'm getting plenty of shooting in. I just need to step it up and improve the score in the 4P. I'm working on it.

NRA Sanctioned Illinois State Championship 4P Match Score. 2/18/2012
I competed in NRA Marksman class but promptly earned the NRA Sharpshooter ranking with a 93.00 average match score. I had hopes to win the Marksman class, but reality set in when I realized that much better shooters are still lurking in the lower ranks because of a twist in the ranking system. If you turn in lower scores when you are just starting out, you can depress your ranking when you actually start getting good. Not really fair for class competition but maybe I'll just stick with trying to improve my own ranking instead. [edit: as it turns out my competitor took 2nd overall in the match (you can take only one prize I expect) so that leaves me as 1st Marksman in my first and only Marksman match. Ha!]

I also learned something new-- the A-17 target was first created by a member at Wheaton Rifle Club!

744-30X (198-14X, 170-5X, 188-5X, 188-6X) - Randy(clydesdale), IL
Smallbore T-Class, Expert
Winchester 52D, Wolf MT, Simmons 3-9X32 @ 9X AO
A-17 target at 50 ft., indoor

Excellent shooting clydesdale. Now I'm kind of wishing I would've shot the match just for the experience. The extra trigger time certainly couldn't hurt. If the match is at Wheaton next year hopefully I'll be able to make it.

Congrats on having a good match!
