Bowling Pin & Falling Plates

Hi Folks, let me start off with the BPM of last week.

I shot in 4 class's, C/F Optic, Revolver, BigBore Revolver & Rimfire Optic. Posted the 2nd fastest qulifying time right behind MrAl in C/F Optic, 14.7sec's with my 'new' 9r if I remember rightly. Naturally that matched me up with MrAl in the 1st shootoff & I was retired right off in that class. Next up for me was revolver, I did OK with the Mdl65 S&W(also new gun), but kept having a NO fire on one chamber with it & lost out in that class.

So, on to BBR ! I met up with Mr Deadly Dean & his 45S&W, and eked out a win, then on to CrisC. shooting my iron sight 44M with some GOOD loads in it! Worked my way past him to finally meet up with MrC. and our normal shootemup contest! Only this time, it came out with a different result! I was shooting a much hotter load & the pins went flying staright back off the tables ! YAAAHOOOOOOOOTIE, beat his buns BIGTIME ! Paybacks are FUN ! He's wasted me 2/3 times & I finally got past him without laying ONE pin down on the table !

Then, along comes the rimfire class! met one or more shooters & was doing really GOOD until along comes MsRainy & rains on my parade ! She retired me, but it was close, not quite close enough though! She then shot off with MrC. who took both 1st & 3rd in the class as he was shooting 2 guns. Lotsa FUN ! Look forward to the next one where I've gotten in a little more gun time with my 9r & the Mdl 65.

Yesterday, we had a Steel Challenge Match scheduled, but the weather wasn't being compliant & we ended up shooting Rimfire Falling Plates! What a BLAST!!!! We had 15 contestants and some REALLY good shooters! I shot (my new S&W22A) against all of the entrants as did all of us, and don't even remember most of those contests ( I was sightd for 25yds & had to hold @ the top of the plates)! MrAl dusted me as did MrC., and JohanD. from HHR&GC. But then I dusted some of the other shooters and ended up as 5th overall I think. 1 point behind JimP (Sledgehammer), and 1/2 point ahead of MsRainy!

AlL was in 1st spot, with JohanD. 2nd, MrC. in 3rd & on down the line. Results are posted on our website ( if anyones interested. So Folks, that's about the rundown of the last couple shoots, and that leaves me prepping for the regional steel match in Idaho. Taking my fancy new 9r and my CZ75 as a backup, just to be on the safe side. We have a 22r Hanging Plate Match next Saturday & a Steel Challenge on Sunday. Hopefully we'll have good weather for those. I need to practice for the Steel Match in Idaho.

'Nuff for now...........................................
