Hi all,

It was a beautiful day here in Heflin to shoot FT. Clear and sunny, temp was in the low 70's. Perfect except for a pesky little breeze. Winds were 10mph gusting to 20 out of the N and NE but because of the lay of the land, sometimes upslope and sometimes downslope. So I'd say it was just about ideal.

This was out last practice before the Nationals. The new lanes were used which brought a nice change of pace from or regular monthly match. The course was a 31.5 TDF but the wind component took the difficulty to a 38. We are heavy in WFTF and Hunter Class shooters. Most shots were from 40 yards and out, amplifying the effect of the wind.

David and Dottie were down from Invicta and we really enjoyed having them down. Today was also the 2nd match for our newest shooter John Whitefield who really had a good showing. Ken Hughes shot high score overall. Two of my rifles are in for repair. I had planned to pull strings and insult..........I mean encourage the other shooters but Mr. Slade changed that. He just happened to bring a really nice Ripley AR5S that he offered to let me shoot. How could I turn that offer down?

Here's how it hashed out.


Ken Hughes 52/60 NJR 100, Lynx 10-50, JSBH
Doug Vinson 46/60 Ripley AR? March 8-80 JSB 8.4
David Slade 39/60 XP Pro MkII B&L 6-24 JSB 8.4
Paul Oswalt Ripley AR5S 27/60 Bushnell 4200 8-32 JSB 8.4


Dottie Berry 42/60 TM 1000 BSA 10-50 JSBH


John Whitfield 34/60 Gamo Dynamax Nikko 4-16 CPH
Loren Hansen 23/60 Unknown.

I had a great time.

Great shooting everyone!!
