    Wanted to say hello, new member from North Florida, used to shoot lots back about 30 years ago but gave it up, returned to it about 6 months ago and found it was a lot easier at 25 that it is near side of sixty, had a ATA shoot Sunday went 50 straight, dropped the 55th and ran the rest for a 96, Thanks for the enjoyable reading...

    Welcome aboard Rick!! That's some nice shooting. I'm only little to the south of you. If your still shooting this winter when we get all our big shoots maybe we will run into each other. There are alot of great people on this site and you will be able to get all of your questions answered here very nicely.You can even buy and sell at bit as well. Beware there are a few people on this site that may not be shooters and stear you wrong,and a few who will make you laugh, and others as well. Good Luck and Break-em all. Jeff

    I missed three targets the first round for a 22. broke 25 straight the next two rounds, dropped the fifth target of the last round for a 24, hmmmm
    22+25+25+24=96
    sorry about the confusion

    You did well after a long lay off. You should be happy. 96 is not a bad score only 4 from 100 but that will the hardest 4 you will shoot.

    Rick, Hope to see you in Tally. The better half and I will get over there once in awhile. Gary and the boys run a good shoot with great targets. Glad you are back into the game. Come on down to Port Saint Joe once in awhile. They shoot registered the 2nd and 4th Sat. Shoot well--Mike

    Thanks Rick, I remember now. I was just lucky the other day. I guess I just didn't have time to THINK about it! We both look forward to shooting with you very soon. Cheers--Mike
