Golly..shot Bullseye for the first time and was that FUN

Post by Laminarman on 5/5/2016, 9:26 pm

First topic message reminder :

I'm intrigued by the sport and that it focuses on ME, not on my competitors (at least for now) and tonight finally got a chance to shoot.  I watched the guys shoot a few weeks back indoors, man did that look BORING.  Tonight was outdoor, the first of the season. Everyone was helpful and it was WAY MORE FUN shooting than watching.  I did reasonably well I suppose. I don't know if this is typical but they shot slow, timed, rapid with both .22 and large caliber for a total of 60 shots I believe.   All I know is I had a total blast and can't wait for next week.  The biggest problem is it looks like I'll need one of those boxes, a spotting scope, a brass catcher...good grief.  But I love toys so I'll deal I guess Smile .  FYI, my handloads of 3.9 WST under an SNS cast and coated 200gr SWC performed pretty well, until I had a jam and that embarrassed me...and when I hung the wrong size target center at 50 yards and help up the line.  But I didn't get any grief so all is well.  I wish I found this decades ago when I had better fine motor control.

I would encourage you to keep a logbook on your scores.  I take a picture of my score card on my phone before turning it in.  When I get home I record in a log book.  This does a couple of things.
You remember the match and can learn from mistakes.  It also shows you how you are improving over time. Also gives you great memories.  I include the date, location, and anything else I can remember.
