Good luck old man.  I am interested in how you do with the 03 as well as the Krag.

Remember pictures.  Maybe you will win the Mook Trophy this year.

Keep us posted Paul.  Reports so far say the wind has been horrendous.  I hope you all have either no wind, or a slight tail wind, which is rare up there, but I saw a wind flag from Rodriguez pits that showed that's what they had.  It was not a slight tail wind as the flag was standing straight out!  Take your time in rapid and lay em in there!  I'll try to get ready for next year!  I wanna go with cast bullets!

Good luck, Paul. I’ll be heading there, too (to watch, not shoot). I look forward to meeting you.

Pat

We'll be on Viale Range Pat.  We're mustering at the Viale Range gate at 05:30. 

BTW...  That goes for anyone who wants to join us for the Roosevelt Match!!!

A few pictures:  Me shooting prone, me shooting off hand, and my son shooting prone.  My friend's son is next to us with the Italian Walnut stocked Krag!

Hey Paul, looks like a great time. I may have to push the envelope and join you at Perry some time. Looks like I will have to "accessorize" a bit and learn the ropes. And practice.

Surprisingly, Ron scored higher in rapid than I did.  Another friend of mine, who routinely shoots gold or silver with his Krag shot a 99 in Rapid... and he's also left handed!!! (hmmmm, there may be something to being a "South-Paw").  BTW, you should see him work the bolt in rapid firing his Type-99 Arisaka...  it looks like he's possessed!

Knute1, gear such as a shooting coat, gloves, a sling, etc. definitely help... but practice is key to getting all ten on paper in rapid, especially with the Krag.  The bolt is smooth as silk, but the reload is easy to fumble.  The chargers make a world of difference!

Sorry I missed you, Paul. I had a little family situation that occupied my time. I made it in time to see the Vintage Sniper match (Monday) and a little of the Springfield Match (?) on Sunday.

Now I’m thinking about trying to get it together to shoot next year in the Roosevelt Match. BTW, what’s the lowest score ever recorded?
