ME,

Thanks for the stories and photos! Good on you for making that shot.

Prayers for the family of the girl--what a tragedy.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
