Paul Steinmayer - Please continue to aim steady holding a correct sight picture, squeeze the trigger, follow through and call your shots.

Don't be picking up bad habits like catching fired cartridge cases in the air, as they eject!

It breaks the "cheek weld", distracts, and slows a guy down.

We all know how precious our 30-40 Krag Brass is, but, there is time to pick it up, after the relay.

Focus ... Prioritize ... No showman stunts ... !

There are no style points given at Camp Perry for fancy Brass retrieval!

On second thought, you would look stylish in a "Norfolk Shooting Jacket".

The guy at the start was my pal, Lee. I'm at the end of the video.

Cost of brass - yeah it's 2-3 times what you pay for it in the States, but alas, no amount of cheek weld could make up for the dismal results we were getting from that old barrel.

Yes Paul, the first shooter in JDR's video, catching his ejected cases in the air with his right. I didn't want you picking up bad habits.
