    Shot my first 25 straight Thursday at the Grand and then followed it up with 50 straight Friday. Ended up hitting 74 of 75 Friday to give me a 95. Almost had my 75 straight. I was shaking so bad my glasses were sliding off my face. Had a blast. P.S. just started shooting a year and a half ago. Thanks for all the pointers i have recieved here.

    BRAVO and congrats to you, Newcomer! Was just reading the thread about the 100 straights...phew! You're achievement is closer to home for me right now. Yesterday I had two in a row...HAHAHA. (actually I've been stringing them out till station 4 then start dropping them here and there.

    Good shooting! On to 75 for ya.

    Matt- It is both satisfying and fun to do things well. Work hard to repeat breaking your first five in the next event. Don't worry about a 25. And, do not do what I often do after shooting a good score. I have many times shot well and then told myself that I finally have this game figured out. I then go to the line with this attitude and receive an unpleasant surprise.

    I'm jealous Matt. Got my first 49 strait at the Grand. That last bird was a perfect straightaway, but all I could see was 50. Oh well. Great shootin, & congradulations.
