    I am not sure but maybe the next county would be a safe distance to be from pelago if he had a gun rest and a cross hair on them, and depending on the firearm he decided to use the next county maybe not such a good idea either

    Three of us old guys were going to make one last run at Nationals this year - we figured this would probably be the last gasp - so to speak. But -- WooHooFloo put an end to all of that.

    The local club invested in electronic targets this summer and we have been able to cut an 80-round Match down to about 3 hours (with no pit pulling for shooters). That has given a couple of guys another year or so of shooting that they would not have been able to do otherwise.

    Looks like fun LarrBeard. One of my guys just opened up a gun shop for his wife to run during the week. He's on a search to find me enough parts to build me an M14, which is my platform of choice, but would love to build a 1903A4 like Ira's. I would pay to see all of you guys shoot a round!

    Man it almost happened for me, Camp Perry is close to me and Larry and crew were on their way. I was wondering if Ira would be there. Then the COVID- shut down the National Event.

    I will pay to watch champions shoot! If Ira and Larry shoot in it next year, we will get you up here gm!

    Watching a shooting match is worse than staring at grass growing or paint drying. And watching me shoot would be a comedy show.
