I had a long weekend of shooting on the books but the weather did not cooperate. The EIC and the 3×600 matches at New Holland were canceled and so was the walk and paste at Kimberton. The show still goes on at York Riflemen, so I hauled across the River for their 800 agg.
It was overcast with a bit of fog but the rain stayed light. There were two relays so we scored in the pits. I was up first.
I have been shooting fast in off-hand lately and its been working for me. I shot 22 rounds off-hand in around 12 minutes and posted a 185. A seven I did not call surprised me a bit, in reviewing the video i should keep an eye on my follow though.
Rapids went well. I shot fast again in sitting, on purpose. I’ve been trying to strike a balance between pacing fast enough to have enough time to establish NPA after dropping into position for CMP matches, and not spraying all the rings of the target with wild shots.
I took my time in rapid prone and made a pretty nice group. A little to the right next time.
Slow prone went well enough that I was surprised to learn turn I came in first! This means a fair bit to me as I’ve been shooting a couple times a year at York for a few years now, I have learned a lot from the shooters there.
With some luck this might be the score I needed to get a new classification card. We will see what the NRA has to say in a couple of weeks!
