For whatever reason, this was a tough match for us. Not sure the reason, but it wasn't for lack of training with @98Z5V. 🍻 We just couldn't get started. I ended up cleaning the last 3 of the 5 stages. The weather was ideal. Can't use that as an excuse.
I want to point out part of what makes doing this so interesting to me. The way that like minded people can look at the same thing and have 2 different ideas of the best way to do something. I'm not saying that any way is right or wrong, because everyone's comfort level with different positions is different. I'm just saying it's something I notice. I didn't get many pics but I did get enough video to compare Stage 3 between @98Z5V and me.
@98Z5V started prone and transitioned to kneeling. He went 7 hits for 10 shots but timed out. He took 23 seconds to engage his first target, however he hit 4 targets with 5 shots, including a cold bore hit.
I started standing and transitioned to prone. My cold bore shot/impact was at 4 seconds. I cleaned the station with 12 shots to make 8 hits.
Not saying either way was gooder than the other but if @98Z5V hadn't taken his sweet ass time to get going, he would have cleaned the stage as he was EXTREMELY accurate from his chosen firing positions.
Those of you that are coming to the Fall Shoot, we'll have plenty of opportunities of similar things for you to try out and play with. To have fun, but most importantly to realize what it actually takes to shoot uncomfortably. And do it well. You'll be able to get a handle on what your actual proficiency is. It's been eye opening for me. I'm not as good as I think I am or would like to be, for sure. Some of these guys are absolute animals.
Just because you have a sub MOA rifle doesn't necessarily mean that its going to make you a better shooter. It definitely helps, but the loose nut behind the stock has to be tight as well.
Enjoy the pics, fellas. I look forward to the feedback.
