    I'm shooting my first registered event tomorrow. I took a break because of a number of reasons. First, I lost my job, so finances were tight. Second, I developed an eye issue which I have resolved with new Rx lenses and a magic dot on my left lense for an occasional cross dominence issue which was very pesky.

    So, I have a new gun (K-80 Pro Sporter) and a few new tricks to try out. Anyway, wish me luck!

    Good luck my friend. You'll do fine. Enjoy the game.

    I took the last 6 1/2 years off courtesy of my Army travel agent. Now I am busting a solid 24 at 16 yards with a 7 year old KX5.

    Break them all!

    Tron: Just remember YOU paid for them so break them, and another thing to remember is you really only have to break one to win----that "one" is the "one" you are calling for. Good Luck and ENJOY. Ross Puls

    Good luck!

    Hopefully you didn't have to sell the boat or the autographed Hillary photos.

    Good luck Joe. First of all enjoy it. You know you are good. You do not really need luck.
    What you forgot to mention is all the people that you have helped in the last few years, including me, to learn how to shoot and to enjoy the shooting games.
    Thanks and again good luck (in case you need it)

    Tron, Good to have you back. If your at the Fall Team make sure you stop by and say "hey let's have a beer". Now if we could just get Foggy back! :)

    Let us know how your tricks work out. Great to hear you are shooting registered again. I'm on a hiatus myself until the kids leave home. Gun pictures?
