Nah that was the guy in the ratnik gear. He's something else. We took him out on friday afternoon to zero his rifle. (ended up seeing an FNC at the range we went to).The brown bear we picked up from academy wouldn't even chamber, and we ended up mortaring a lot of it out. We ran to a different range and got some wolf that would work, They let us mess with a G36 conversion that someone had sold to them as well. Pretty cool day overall.
With as much gear as he had on i'm surprised he was able to keep up so well

The east bloc sniper thing, it was what i was going for yeah. That adidas jacket is also the only light jacket i own as well lol

Jill refused to accept it, and spent some time on their site looking for a solution.

It is stupid, and they seemed surprised that anyone might want to enter scroes that way. It just shows how easy it is to get tunnel vision.

To be fair, they think it's stupid that we're still using scorecards. If they'd fix the wait time calcs we could stop!

When a hammer is something you carry on your belt for an RNG... lol. It's cool though at least he was prepared for it!

Hell, I'd be happy if I could not back all the way out 5 times to enter each stage on a shooters score. Practiscore is a very beneficial program. But it still could use some tweaking.

Matt figured that out.

Sort by stage, then shooter.

Enter all shooter for that stage.

It was ugly, but not as ugly as it could have been.

You're alive. We missed you. Come see us in September at the match so we can tell tale tales and catch up.

Yep! Better, stronger, faster... well, not exactly. I do have some new parts to keep my guts on the inside.

Thank you, Mithrandir...and I am glad to see you still this side of the grey havens.

It is implied in the story that Gimli left middle earth willingly..something unlikely in the extreme. But it is hard to argue the reasons why this might have been, both his friendship with Legolas...and his desire to see Galadriel again. One is left to wonder if the weight of either elves wishes alone would be sufficient to let Eru allow it.

We are joking here, but I had no less than three Mertens hug me recently...not Galadriel, surely, but for this shade of Gimli...the same.
