The Utah TFL Chapter is growing considerably. We had 14 shooters and enough guns to give everyone 5.
The morning started out looking bleak and snowy but that clearer up for the most part. It remained cold and breeze so no one shot to best ability... but we all had fun.

Some of us started out setting up targets, others tables and the Chrono... then we went about shooting.
The Geeks in the bunch were instantly drawn to that Chrono for number crunching. This was serious work... I started out with my Detonics and ended up stopping when I was about to start drawing blood. We ran 3 round of each load through each gun. Raw Data Follows:
