    Good question. Most of us have moved to wiping when shooting with our barrels under the hot summer sun like you do in BPTR. However this year the NRA BP Target Rifle Nationals will be held in October at the Whittington Center (Raton, NM) I will be there. My guess is that old habits change hard, and many will wipe. Although, I will bet you a Dunk'n doughnut Dave Gullo will be using the blow tube and so will I AS the cool air and overcast sky's allow.

    Don, I agree with all of what you wrote.

    Cody, Jack and I won the Iron Sight over-all high 3 rifle team score. It has been a few years since I won it and that was back when Brian Chilson, Mike Patterson and I shot as a team.Click image for larger version.

    Its ain't bragging if it's the truth
    Altho I was disappointed to see that three some didn't have to have a shoot off to determine 1,2 and 3 overall...

    This is the first time in quite a few years where at least one PPB shooter has not been in the top 10 in either BPCR scope or irons or both. Keep in mind, there are VERY few paper patchers. Sometimes only one or two.

    Another thing to keep in mind when looking at this year's matches in isolation is that it was pretty humid and cool by Raton Nationals standards.

    There has been several shooters finishing in the top 10 or better shooting paper patch at the Quigley with over 600 competitors.
