Another Fine day at DSRPC with temperatures at 107 degrees. The wind was blowing every which way, but I got lucky on the long yardage. But on the short side, both Sheldon Turf and John Ames, shot a 50-5x prefect score. Great shooting guys! Again, I want to thank the out of state guys for coming to our match and for bringing lunch!

  • Sitting unsupported on Stage Three, engaging targets at 300, 250 and 300yds. Sweep from left to right and repeat.
  • Alternating targets at 250 and 175yds. on Stage Four, from standing position. Snipers engaged the farther target only, from sitting unsupported position.
