Well "one heck of a shooter" had a hard time today.
I got so into the management of the match I couldn't seem to calm down when it came my turn to shoot. I can usually tune it all out. But, not today. Anyway, I wanted to post our results to once again point out the potential of the CZs and two more last place finishes for a Marlin 39.
That Sporter Class score of Barry's (two week old CZ American) set a new club high and it would have won this year's USBR National Match in West Virginia (August). The high Sporter score at the National this year was a 227 (but, conditions are a huge factor and I don't know what they faced up there at 1000 feet this year).
Gene, bravely shot his Marlin 39 in two classes today. And, please note that he broke 200 for the first time today with a new Savage Mk II - he must have the basics down.
Here is the match report that I posted on the club website today:
For the second month in a row, we were greeted by rain at match time. Once again, it receded quickly and we got down to business.
Wind = 7.4 max and 2.2 avg
Temp = 70.6
