It was a long time ago: Way . . . last Sunday. Been trying to get this up on the forum since Monday night. Sunday morning at about 5:30 I hard the thunder start, and then the HARD rain. I though: Man! There will probably be four people at the range this morning.: Me, my two grandsons and Leo Hedger. Leo has the hottest 10/22 in the County.

Got to the range at 8:15. Just the three of us: No Leo Hedger. But: Before 1O o’clock there were 14 people there, including Leo. Two of the ladies didn’t shoot, but they were there, changing targets and bring in the noon meal. So we had 12 shooters. Not bad, considering that 15 is the most we ever had at one of these matches, and this was the first time in two years that we had rain at one of our E-Mail Matches.

Stock out of the box rifle. I scored targets ‘till the lightning stopped.
This Russian rifle is starting to shoot a little better, and I only shot the one target in this match. Best I could do with it down in Mission, Texas was a 242-3x.

Scott had his wife wade out to put up and retrieve his target.

223-2x Christopher Haller. Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan (Age 13)
Remington 521-T. Lyman 10X. Wolf Match Target.
Turned down the chance to shoot his Grandma’s Winchester M-52C, just to see what this Remington 521-T could do. Chris said there was too much rain and wind and he couldn’t get the parallax out on the first target. He got a 200-2x on that first target.
Could Chris make that little rifle do better next month? Or will he decide to go back to Grandma’s Model 52C?

Brand new shooter. He'll do better next time.

The rest of us were too smart to wade out to 50 yards to set up targets.

We had three ladies at the range on Sunday. Mary Sparkman shot in the storm.

Annie Merchant decided not to get wet this time. She brought in Kentucky Fried Chicken Thanks Anne !

The other lady: Lorrie Hauswirth, is a good shot when she brings out her Winchester M-75. Sunday she changed targets. We had a LOT of water on the range. Lorrie was a good sport changing those targets.
