Tough shots!

Response to A Visual Memory of Past National Matches (Heflin)...


That's interesting. When I shot at this target, I couldn't see the target at all. I could finally see the KZ. Barely. I did manage to knock it down both times. It's much easier to see with the flash. They had some really tough target locations. The last match was at least as tough.

This target was about as hard as one on Saturday at the Nats in Michigan just above the barn. When I got to it, the fog/clouds were covering it up. I finally managed to see what I thought was the KZ and it must have been, since the string jerked after I pulled the trigger. Couldn't see the target at all. Still not sure whether it was fog or clouds. Could have been either one or both.

Wish I could have done as well with the ones I could actually see. Maybe I should just shoot blindfolded?

I will miss shooting in Texas this year with you guys. Just getting too hard to make the long trips.

Will try to make it to the Cajun's next year though. A little closer.

Hope to see you there,
