Hi Joe,

I have five individual scores to submit for May, all of which I shot
yesterday. I have three different rifles at 25 yards, a BAB at 25, and a
50 yard which I hope I have in the right format to compete for
aggregate score. I shot a target with my CZ/BRNO as my contribution to
team CZ.

I had hoped to enter a 25 yard Canadian Team score, however, it looks
like only two other shooters will be submitting scores this month. Can I count two scores, same shooter, different gun, towards a team score? (nope)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Thanks again for making this all possible.

Best regards,
Bruce Flinn "reg"

I might have done better if I wasn't so stoned from using too much
Hoppes #9 on my face to repel blackflies.

Now I know for a fact that a person can shoot through, not let them bother him, a bunch of mosquitos. But when it comes to black flies and they rip a noticeable divot out of your skin, it becomes a major distraction. And still you got great scores that had to take a lot of concentration. My hat is off to you!!! Very, Very good shooting.

Thanks , Mike

I was getting a fair amount of of blood on my hands and face until desperation drove me to try that bore cleaner. Then it was a piece of cake, kind of like running with weights on your feet and then taking them off the day of the track meet.

Here's a picture of the range where I shoot. (For you southern folks this is a fine may 27 afternoon in Nova Scotia-notice there are no leaves on the trees yet)

Looks like Reg has taken the competition to a new level, but I'm not sure that photographic proof of your excuses is going to go over real well if it gets into the rule book..

:D :D :D
