emn83, Go and have fun that is what F-Class is all about. F-Class is kinda like cheating, man they put a spotter disc for each shot. All you need to do is hold hard and remember the best advice I ever recieved when it comes to shooting F-Class, "Keep the target in the pit's".

Good Luck!!
Roland

Re: First Match

Thanks Roland, I got the idea to shoot F-class from reading the article on here about using it for LRH practice. This match I'll be using a borrowed gun because mine is at the smith, but I look forward to taking mine out next season, if not before, to shoot it in matches

Re: First Match

The match today was awesome, shot a total of 88 shots with 80 for score. got a 692-9X, nothing to complain about for my first time shooting past like 200 yards, and using a borrowed gun. The Gun was awesome, a tricked out AR with a Nightforce NXS scope on it... an addiction has definitely been born
