Response to Connecticut Air Gunners (CAG) Match Report 2017 April 2
Thanks so much for the inception of this shoot, and all the work you and John did to get it to happen. It was pretty humbling to dust off the winter cobwebs - in such high winds! It was all I could do to smile as all six of my first shots of the match were blown wide of the kill zones on those long targets at the edge of the pond. I've never held off that much, so it was a real lesson. Splitting left and right was the pattern for the day.
I was squadded with Hans, and I was really glad he came down to join the fun. It's always a pleasure to share a match with him.
Besides some bonehead mistakes on shots that should have been much more achievable, it felt fantastic to drop the occasional 55 yarder in those winds, not to mention that single 75 yard shot! Since my SIII Sightron won't focus that far, I had to dial down to 12x and aim my best in the fuzziness. I must of held seven to eight inches into the wind for that hit.
The match was as well-run as any in the region: great targets, layout, and administration. I'm sure the spectators were impressed and hopefully will return.
