    Looks like we about have the state covered now.:D

    Paul has the Northeast corner covered. Eaglet and I have the East. Now, akksolo has the south.

    Maybe we need someone in Tonopah to catch the center.

    Hang in there, akksolo, it takes a while before the braille turns into something understandable. Most of it is just defining a logical path that involves lots of practice.

    Here's my path:
    Develop good shooting habits. Improve good one's, minimize bad one's.
    Improve reloading ability. Includes load development.
    Maximize guns potential. Starts with a good trigger, pillars, bedding, etc.
    Practice. Lot's of rounds down line. I participate in a monthly shooting match.
    Gather equipment. LRF, Windmeter, PDA w/ballistics,...etc.


    Get the basics down and then focus on your weakest area.
