AWESOME! Only one way to make it happen - focus on one target at a time

MAG - if you are going to continue this great shooting, you really need to hit the dollar store for some disposable ball caps! Those Beretta hats get expensive after a while!

Woot, woot!!! Nice going. The addiction will only get worse now.
I missed # 100 on low house number 8 at a club tourney once and had to be put on suicide watch for a week....

Good show. Keep going. I once was in pursuit of a wonderful embroidered "100 Straight" patch. I choked at 97 on a low house 7, the absolute easiest shot on the course. I have never ever had to worry about choking again.

Good job Jason! It's hard to put two together. Stay after it and you'll get that "75". And I hope you beat me to a "100" also. Now order me more Ammo!

Congrats' on the 50!!!
I've had a number of 25's, but never have made it to 50.

I'm sorry, but, why do the hats get destroyed?

When your shooting ability reaches certain milestones (25, 50 straight etc) it is tradition to have your squad shoot your hat...

My friend, the tradition was to have your hat shot after you got your first 100-straight in a competition. It seems the bar has been significantly lowered.

A few want to shoot my hat and I have yet to shoot a 25. I fail to understand why they insist that I wear it when they do.

It must have... Whenever I shoot a 25 straight with strangers I get asked if they need to shoot my hat...

My friend, perhaps when you get a straight, you need to act like it's not your first time.
