Did anyone go to nationals? I did and it was a harsh enviorment for a Louisiana boy. The weather cooperated except for the occasional sandstorm. Each day I brougt 3 or 4 pounds of the New Mexico sand back to the motel in my hair and on my guns. As a result of the lack of grass on the range, the light on the firing line was so bright it was uncomfortable. I enjoyed the opportunity to shoot in the biggest police match in the world but the layout of the range seemed haphazard. It was approximately a quarter mile walk from the range to the stat office, the shotgun range and another 100 yds to the award office. New Mexico has a contract to hold Nationals in Albuquerque for the next 5 yrs. I HOPE JACKSON MS GETS IT BACK!! If you have any thoughts about Albuquerque hosting Nationals PLEASE POST.
