Despite the mild conditions, it was still surprisingly 'squirrelly' out there - the wind flags (all two of them) going in opposite directions, and the bullet impact on target disagreeing with both. Such is life ;)
That drives my kids crazy. They still believe that there must be some truth and rational basis to where a bullet will land.

    Oh, I'm sure there *is*... if a person had an infinite amount of information, along with the computing power to process it in a timely fashion. Seeing as how we're stuck here in the real world and frequently have to make a best guess on limited and potentially erroneous data... well, 'maddening' wouldn't be too far wrong of a term as far as I'm concerned

    I say about the only thing I could rely on was the shock I was getting watching what the wind was doing to the bullet trace on the way to the target Seemed the flags were pretty much no help at times and a few shots were just......"Well, let's see where this one goes"......

    Good match Monte, will be better once that hokie velcro issue is sorted out
