"Hige sceal þe heardra, heorte þe cenre, mod sceal þe mare, þe ure mægen lytlað…"
my fave is 'if they'd just let me shoot my (insert gun of choice here) i'd have cleaned up'.
Good luck. Sounds like fun...
"The sights were still caked with Cosmoline from the CMP."Wv: blymeYaaaargh! Avast there!
You sound like a trapshooter! :)
Don't forget - "I ate too much bacon "(burp).
"The dog ate my good bullets." I swear upon the holy places, the captcha word is ratterre. Exactly the sort of dog that eats bullets.
I'd buy everything you say Tam, except the last excuse."She needs to learn how to lose gracefully."
Heh. Just confirmed my 3:30 appointment with blastie goodness and a new shooter.Now I need to go assemble some range toys. Heh...
T'was shooting an M1 carbine in a 100 yd "gas gun" shoot at my old club when I adjusted windage the wrong way, walking my rounds right instead of left, off the paper.[sigh]A bad day shooting a carbine is better than the best day at the office - but that one was close.
So, where did you fine carbine ammo, and can I have some ?
I was shooting an old '03 Springfield match gun belonging to a buddy's uncle. I fired a sighter from prone, and my buddy Gary, on the scope, said "Give me another". I did, followed by a third. He suggested I not mess with the sights, as I had three pinwheels dead center in the V ring. I proceeded to look really good, until the knob on the ladder sight, which I'd forgotted to tighten, slipped, and the sight bar slipped a bit lower with each shot. I wish I'd twigged to it before I'd thrown away a hundred plus points. Nobody to blame but myself. Dang.
Don't forget, "The barrel band must have been slipping." That might be true particularly if the carbine has the 1/2" Type 1 band.
Now, was there any need for excuses? How did you finish?
Hey! That sounds like FUN. I want to shoot my 1943 GM M1 carbine in a match. It's a ringer, even after having spent half a century with the Israelis before I got it. (Damn I'd love to hear that carbine tell me some stories.)
Hard to shoot those little guns and get good position. Good luck. What's the course of fire?
40 round match: 10 slow fire prone, 10 rapid fire prone, 10 rapid fire sitting, 10 slow fire offhand.
