The sun was out, the wind was blowing. With that, we had the mirage; welcome to Nevada. I know I’ve said this time again, but with the mirage at 400 yds, you just can’t see those bullets holes. You just do the best you can. But it does make you a better shooter – you must have sight and trigger control.
If you have not shot in the ground hog match, come and shoot THE FIRST MATCH FOR FREE!
All calibers except 50BMG allowed and you can use any power scope.
What a day! When the mirage was at it’s peek no-one could see their bullet holes! Then just to make it more fun, the wind kicked in! Everybody was saying to themselves, if you can’t see your bullet hole, you won’t know how to make an adjustment.
Sunday, if you like the heat you would have been in 7th heaven! It was at least 90 degrees out and by 8:10am we were in the 100’s. Shooters had a hard time seeing thier bullets holes because of the mirage. Combined with the wind, it was some kind of a fun day. Thanks to the guys for running the targets for me and nice to see Doc Smith back out again.
Don’t forget, the next match will be any rifle and scope, except for 50 BMG. We also have a side match for .22 Rimfire rifle at 50/100 yds.
