It was bound to happen as I ain't much of a paper shooter! I was surprised to have got this far!
Being in the deseased column means that I can go to the range and not have any pressure at all about my first shot! This was the second time I shot a gun that I had not shot in many months. It finally cought up with me! Good shooting there!!!

Since all of the fresh meat matches are done for round 4, I went ahead and did the draw for the still healthy guys.(still a few shots left for the wounded bracket) Ain't but 3 of ya left now so, Mountainman56, you get a bye.
Jim/OH and GW will be shootin' against one another for round 5. The winner will shoot against Mountainman56 in round 6. Feel free to start early if'n ya want to. :hatsoff:

In round 7 there will be only one guy without a scratch so he will move to the wounded bracket even tho he ain't wounded. He will still have to be shot twice tho. He'll just have to have somebody to shoot against so we hafta move him. So, whoever draws that guy, shoot him so it'll be easier to keep track. :haha:

Since we're gettin' down to the nitty gritty now, we're gonna start new rounds as soon as all the shots are in. ie. Round 5 will be over either August 30 or as soon as all the matches are done. If everybody turns in a score by the 15th (or whatever), Round 6 will start the next day. Round 6 will last one month or until all those shots are in, whichever comes first. etc. etc. etc. The sooner y'all shoot, the sooner I can send that bottle of Swampy's Bear Squeezin's to the winner. :thumbsup:

A bye! More time to practice! :) I've been awful lucky so far. There's a lot of guys who got knocked out who had better shots than I've had.

I found out last weekend it's a lot easier to shoot at a proper target than a blank sheet of paper. I got lucky and was able to impress some of them cartridge shootin guys out at a friends place. Got six shots inside 3" using two different rifles (my .50 CVA Mountainrifle and my .54 GPR). One of the fellows figured he could do better with his centrefire but it didn't work out that way :grin: I'm still waiting for the case of beer he owes me. I do however have one guy wanting me to call him the next time I go shootin so maybe I've got me another convert.

I'll be away from the forum for several days starting Thursday. I'm going out to Sacramento to spend some time with Travis before he gets deployed so good luck to all you guys left in the shootin match. :thumbsup:

Between work and weekend events, I never managed to sneak off to the range despite thinking I might. Besides, that was a great shot HFD, and I probably would've been a goner anyway. Good luck to everyone still in the contest. :thumbsup:
