I switched up my schedule a bit and tried going to the range first thing this morning after dropping kids off at school. I ended up being at the range from about 8:20-9:10am and I shot 50 rounds in that time. Overall, it was a good start to the morning and I felt I was able to focus a bit better throughout the day.
One welcome change was the addition of a spotting scope which made it super easy to see the shots on target from 25 yards away! But, it’s also one more thing that I have to carry and setup.
I had 50 shots across 3 targets and my average score was 67.33 on these eze-scorer targets.
This past Tuesday, I shot a 508 at a practice NRA precision tournament. As you can see below, things started out pretty bad. Luckily, I got some tips throughout the night from some kind people.
- Place a drop of oil on top of every other mag to keep junk flowing
- But, don’t store bullets with oil on them
- Place left hand in pocket
- Take a couple of breaths between shots during the slow fire course
- If I can’t take a shot within 8 seconds on slow fire course, rest, and then try again
I went out to the range today expecting to participate in an NRA Precision practice match. Unfortunately, the match was cancelled, and I didn’t find out until I got there. But, I decided to get some shots in.
I shot a total of 110 rounds. 90 rounds at 25 yards and 20 rounds at 50 yards. All shots were done one-handed.
For the most part, weather was clear. At times, there was a very light sprinkle.
