    I’ve got mine printed but don’t know if I’ll be able to carve out the time this month. I’m still trying

    Well I had a lot of interference from life and the weather but I finally got the target shot. I had to color it in as when I hung it up and went back to the 25 yard line I could not see anything as it looked blank to me. Still shot pretty bad as we had wind gusts that day up to 35 MPH. That was about 4 or 5 days ago. That same day my 96 year old father in law fell and ended up in the hospital but fortunately he did not knock down my 95 year old mother in law. After blood tests and exrays etc we ended up putting him in Hospice as turned out he was not as healthy as he thought. 96 is a long life and he said he was ready to go. He actually apologized for living so long and being a pain (couldn't walk, macular degeneration and could barely hear). He was a medic in WWII and was in the Battle of the Bulge. He has told me stories that make your hair stand on end.

    So hopefully you get the target and not your neighbor.

    Thanks Paul. My wife and I have been married 52 years and so I have known him all that time which makes he and my mother in law more like mom and dad. Tough to deal with. You couldn't ask for better in laws.

    Well I spoke too soon. I did shoot, but had the target sitting on the counter about to put in the mail when it disappeared haha. Wife must not have been a huge fan or maybe trying to save me the embarrassment and let me get things tuned in for next month.

    Congratulations, Ames! Actually, I'm surprised I did as well as I did since I could barely see the targets, minuscule as they were. And thanks once again to Terry for running this match!

    Congrats to Ames and of course all who participated. That was the toughest target to shoot as I had a hard time seeing it. And thanks again to Terry for putting it on. Dave

    Maven could see the targets??? Wow. This was kind of random shooting for me - this month's with an actual visible aiming point will actually be harder for me to get a good score. I can't get a decent group without a really good rest. Fun, though.

    See the target? You've got to be kidding. Between the low sun (We shoot to the southeast.) and those tiny marks on paper, I really couldn't see the target well at all. What I wound up doing was aiming where my first shot hit.

    That's funny. Now I don't feel as old as I have been feeling.
    I could see the targets. Got the 30. Hitting the tiny one was out of my skill set that day.
