With the temperature predicted to reach 100 degrees it was decided to eliminate one of the two silhouette matches for the day. You could choose which - rimfire or pistol caliber. I chose the rimfire with the Marlin Mountie because I shoot it the most.
I had a rough start with the chickens, only six and then started to get on track with the boars, nine before struggling with the turkeys, ONLY ONE TURKEY! Yikes! I shot six rams in a row and finished with 8. Knocking down 24 out of 40 is good for me, the winner managed 31 and a few other guys had mid to upper twenties. Al - the match director - shot 38 out of 40 in the pistol caliber class. Except for the heat, no excuses.
I did get a few pictures even though I was participating.
The Captain, friend and all around good guy partnered up with a rookie he's encouraging into the sport and still managed a competitive score.
Next time, Wear a hat - baked myself. HIT more Turkeys!! One shot at a time!
