Second, I found that I shoot better using a lightweight shooting coat.
This may seem trivial for some, but over the past 40 years I have shot iron sights, and yesterday was the first time I shot a scope in competition.
Awesome. Sounds like you shot great!
I'm not quite there on y'all's level yet, but hope to be there soon. I have a match this weekend in Tulsa that I'm looking to improve on what I did last month though.
