Jeffs girl showing us how it's done, by a 11 year old. I was truly impressed.

I would like for Jonathan to be one of the pallbearers at my funeral.



He carried my dead ass all the way through the team shoot, so he may as well complete the task.

Believe me, no one was more disappointed than me. Maybe June will work out.

In the short term, you are all of course welcome to the SEC championship match next Saturday

Thanks again, Rob, for all the work.


To be fair, Sophia didn't properly shoot the Drop 15 since she was prone for all three distances. Tuscan is the real AR winner.

But Sophia had a great time and can't wait for both the Oregon shoot, as well as the Washington Fall Shoot. So if you'll have us back, it's a solid 'go' on the calendar for this household. Maybe we'll even get momma to show up and shoot one of these times.

He did alright. I was going to give him a hard time about being scope-dependent and weak sauce, but he got his little suitcase carbine to hit at 200 and shut me the hell up.

I'm not scared that he's going to be be bigger 'n' stronger than me some day soon. I'm worried that he'll start out-shooting me before I'm ready for that. Trying to stave off Father Time for a little while longer.

Thread drift on the kids growing up thought....

For 15-ish years, me and my 5 boys trail road dirt bikes and raced hare-scrambles. If one of them beat "the old man" in a sanctioned race or even just us trail riding seriously hard & fast through a section by ourselves, it was a dream come true for a teenager....and also for "the old man"

For sure. I want that kid to keep on getting better. I just want him to beat me because he's getting good - not because I'm falling off.

Well I didn't make it because!

It looks like you guys had a great shoot. I haven't responded to any posts on here for a while cause, well 1st thing my gallbladder went bad and had surgery. Everything went great, cause well pain killers work good. Then the week before the shoot I was in southern California with 45 of my high school band kids. Yeah we had fun, even with out guns. Got home at 3am Saturday morning. Thought about coming up later in the day to say hello, but I feel asleep. I do plan on making the Oregon shot so I will see most of you there.

Thanks 12v for getting the times up... And big thanks to Coffeevixen for herding the cats! I felt bad when I realized I didn't get a chance to say "bye" to her when we took off.

The popper that wouldn't yield to the 55gr pills has been a touchy topic around here.. I'm glad to report the advice was taken from Tuscan and others and a couple hundred 77's will be arriving tomorrow to get loaded up

Thanks to all yet again! I had a great time. Thanks to the breakfast folks. I made it just in time and it was awesome!
Thanks to CoffeeVixen for herding us around and the companionship! Plus all the other myriad things you do!
Thanks Rob for partnering up with a semi-blind dude for the team shoot
I'm sorry I left so early that I didn't have a chance to say goodbye to everyone except a few that were up. Hopefully I didn't wake up TuscanRaider who I was camped next to. I saw you wiping off your windows but didn't want to bother you .
Thanks to Jim, Brush511, and Rob for all the hard work to put this on.

I'm hoping to make the Oregon shoot this year again. Usually it's at the end of finals week (which is why I'm always exhausted that weekend). This year it falls on the weekend before finals so things are up in the air.
If nothing else I may have to make a whirlwind trip like the Washington shoot.
It was nice to meet Vanessa and Caleb (Flatfour) and several others. It's always a great time and this year was no exception!

Is the shooter in pink yours? She hit that thing four or five times iirc.

Another vote for 77s. Jonathan and Sophia were both shooting 77s, and the targets all went down. And they buck the wind way better than 55s or 62s, too.

Yep, she's mine or I'm hers or how ever you look at it.. tested out a load last week of the 77's that looked promising before the termination winds kicked up. Your kids rocked it with those AR's, man.
