    There are some real good shooters at the match.
    If, I do my best I will be pleased.
    I really enjoy being with the group of guys that attend this, as they are all interested in LR shooting.
    This is primarily a bench match, and I am primarily a field shooter, so this is not something I practice at.
    I have a hunting/shooting stock for the BAT and hope to have one for the 6.5-284 in the near future.
    It makes the SP more useable than just bench shooting and LR pd'ing.

    Thank you. The match was last weekend and here is the result of how my "Light Pistol" the SP in the middle did:

    Quick run down of how "Batman" (The name my wife gave this SP) did this week at the Sundance LR Handgun Comp.
    We were fortunate to take first in all three distances: 500, 750 and 1,000 yards.
    This is in the Light Pistol division.
    We had some crazy winds this week
    My best 5-shot groups at distance were:
    500 yards: 2.445"
    750 yards: 4" and change (can't remember now-I'm TIRED).
    1000 yards: 7.5"
    These are not amazing groups, but considering the wind we had, I am very pleased. On Thursday my full value correction for wind was over 20 mph and the wind at the bench was 9-13 mph...It was really blowing hard closer to the target:D
    I decided to spot for myself for all of 500 and all of the 1000 yard groups.
    Bob Baker (Freedom Arms) spotted for me at the 750 yard distances.
    Batman tracks so good, that I could spot my own shots!

    Eric Wallace (Nawakwa Accuracy) builds amazingly accurate SP's

    That's some awesome shtooting Ernie! You guys did great Congrates! I guess the new SP is a keeper for sure? Considering the bad wind and your using a SP I would be very thrilled to have got scores like that. Good Job Guys Well Done!

    Very nice Ernie. May have to pick your brain on that 6/6.5 x 47 laupa.
