Re: My Groundhog match experience

Another thing I forgot to mention but I remembered after Boyds post. This Chris Matthews LSR rig had not been cleaned one bit after over 150 rounds before shooting the match. Thats one dirty bird and she still shot like a house a fire! Funny too. Fella at the range (nep) said Chris wasa wise man...Dont clean till ya need too. Clean those X's right out of her. I got a kick out of that from Nep

Re: My Groundhog match experience


I just got a look at the official results...

not really sure you understand or appreciate how well you did...

you just got into this game and did the right thing had a custom built by an master at his craft...

but looking through the names of the guys you scored better than.... um .. Joe ... those guys have been at this thing for a very long time and are some very skilled shooters...

Joe, you need to reach over your shoulder and pat... I'm sure ya sent the atta boys to CM as well....

Re: My Groundhog match experience


Chris Matthews is the MAN. I Did not realize how well I did. As far as the names...I could not tell you who is who. I was excited to see Jeff Gates name. I saw he won a few weeks back. I think if I would of listened to my spotters and not rush the 500 I could of did Better. Now I'm tempted to have Chris build me a bench gun...But then again...Do I really need one??
