New F-class matches in MS

Well lookee here F-class has spread to SW MS and they are shooting a sporter rifle class for folks who want to try out thier hunting guns. It isnt going to save me much gas because I m going to continue to attend the other matches, but this is close to home I cant pass that up.

Here is a partial copy of an email I received. I took out the personal contact info of the individual putting the match on. If anyone on the area has questions about attending and would like to speak with the person who will be in charge email me and I will forward your contact info to them.

Just my humble opinion but this phrase has some important information

The part about being able to actually manage to shoot as far as the target is important. You will not score very high if your bullets don't make it to the target.

Its always embarrassing when you bullets just get tired of flying and fall out of the sky and tumble along in the grass scaring the doodle bugs.

Yup I get laughed at all the time when my bullets impact the berm and I have the barrel pointed upwards at a 45 degree angle

Most of the folks around this area have never shot f-class I think they were trying to dissuade the thurty thurty shooters

Sunday was rainy and muddy and another first time shooter showed up with a short barreled 308 and Blackhills ammo. At 1K he couldn't stay on the target because of the rounds going subsonic..

LRH members swept the f-open class at this match Congrats Jimbo300.....3rd place in your first f-class match is kickin butt. Another member KimR took second. I may not be as good a shooter as these guys but had em outgunned and squeaked it out. Except for the broiling we took a good time was had by all. I am pretty sure that the guy who took 1st in F-TR is also a member her but do not know his user name, sorry Ralph.

I am going to try my best to get two more members to show for the next one. How about it Adam and Richard?

I think I am going to weld an umbrella on my rest to keep my forehead from burning:mad:
