    Hey Don, I just finished looking up Lodi Wi and reading about the match. I’m very tempted to drive up and be a spectator, no way would I be able to compete at such short notice. But would like to drag my spotting scope along and watch the boys at...

    I’m looking for a lighter bullet for close range practice that will be easy on my shoulder. I’ve had two shoulder ops on my right shoulder but it is not giving me any trouble now. Recoil never bothered me, but age and the idea of shooting a long...

    Lol, I’d rather be lucky than good ! Or more likely, luck favors the prepared. A lot of good points about proper setup. I did a lot of competitive pistol shooting in my youth, after getting to the line and placing the pistol in my hand I would shut...
