You might need to stop by the ATM on the way, and get the man his money.
Be careful what you ask for, smoetimes you get it.

Re: funny story.

And the funny part is that your father in law is the one that threw you under the bus. Win or lose he is trying to tell you something. Don't talk crap if you can't back it up. I hate to say it but it sounds like you don't think you can actually back it up. Even then, just because you can doesn't mean you should. You might have just burned a bridge to a good hunting spot! That would be worth more to me then the money, and $1000 is a lot of money to me. Heck $100 is a lot to me, especially this time of year.
I run into guys all the time that talk out of their butts. I figure the best thing to do is to invite them to come shoot with you. Most people don't know what 1000 yards actually looks like.

Re: funny story.

Lol great story. I always cock off to people about being a better shot than them, because I believe myself to be fairly proficient with anything that goes boom or stick and string. I would never bet 1000 bucks against somebody I'd never seen shoot before, Hell even poor shots get lucky. You better get out and do some shooting because you have to have total confidence in you and your rifle.

I just recently got into the long range game and a target 1k yards away is a long damn shot. The furthest I have shot is 1222 yds, the target was a rock about 10x20 inches. It took me three shots- first was high so I took off 2moa, second was directly right, third shot I held left side of rock and bang dead rock.

So I wish you the best of luck (cause a little luck can't hurt), and get out and do some shooting so your confident in your equipment.

Happy Thanksgiving to All.

Justin
