Last Garand Match of 2014


Took the Garand out for one last match for the year. It was a crisp December day in the low 40s and overcast. I had taken my rifle apart after the last match as I had shot one round of corrosive ammo and my OCD wouldn’t let it slide. Of course, I didn’t have time to take it out to check my 0 and let it set into the wood. I managed to dial it in with the 5 sighter rounds, which was better than I expected as I had peened the barrel which can change POI.

After the sighters, prone went well. However, I really fell apart in off-hand. My head wasn’t in it and I let myself get mad. Good news is I have four months to practice for the next season.
