Well, despite the fact that Lerch and I performed pretty poorly, I figure I'll post a few pics and give you guys the low down.
Wildcat Custom Rifles held an unknown distance steel shoot in Sayre, OK on Memorial Day. The competion was setup w/23 targets over 2 courses of fire. There were 50 shooters (one of which was David Tubb). It started off very foggy in the morning. Couple that w/the fact that they were making the targets alomost impossible to hit w/a laser anyway and you have a bad situation for Lerch and I. I tried to range w/my NPR1 reticle but don't have much experience doing so and it showed. I completley missed 2 easy targets b/c of ranging errors. I'm still kicking myself but I did learn alot and won't let the same mistakes happen again. The first course of fire was terrible for me.
After a lunch break, we moved on to the second course. The Swaro was working well for me by then and I was able to hit all but one target w/the laser. This equated into only one missed shot for the second course of fire and I was able to pick the one target I missed up on the second shot. I did very well on this course but it was too little to late. I was doomed to finish 20th.
Anyway, it was a good time. The one brightspot was that Rick Reeves, the guy who owns the range in Alex and puts on the balloon shoots, one first place. He didn't just barely win either. His Cooper model 22 in 6.5-284 dominated. He was far and away the best on that day!! Congrats to Rick and all the other winners!!!
Here is Lerch. On the firing line:
Here he is after shooting. I had to censor the photo as he was having a rough day as well:
Here I am on the second course of fire. As you can see, Tubb is just two down from me. He was a really nice guy. I was very impressed w/him.
And just a few pictures of Tubb on the line:
Now that I've given Tubb his due, I have to say that I spanked him pretty good on the second course of fire [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]. Of course, we don't need to talk about how bad he spanked me on the first course [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img].
It was a good time w/some good folks and some good prizes. I'd post what Rick won but I wouldn't want his wife to find out [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]!! Congrats to all and thanks to all those that helped put the shoot on.
