    Nice going when you shot it was you real tense or just relaxed and going with the flow.

    I figured the birds was just coming out and you was having a big time not thinking to serious but I could be wrong anyway I shoot my best when I don't think to much.

    Hey Wyoharris: Did you read the latest T&F. The puller wrote his squad up for shooting their teammates hat. "Unsportsman like conduct". Unreal. Dave T.

    Congrats!! I know how it feels, got my first 25 last October, shot 24,24,24,24,25. Plan on the first 50 and probably 75 this year, and hope you the same. Good Luck.

    Hey Fog, I was a little nervous on the last post. I shot it out at Jackson Purchase. Randell was pulling the targets for me. We were the only two there, so my cap didn't get shot. Matt

    If you afford it. Keep that gun. You seem to be shooting it well.

    When you get into a slump one "solution" is get a "better" gun. Highly unlikely it will make much of a difference - but you WILL try to buy a better score.

    Nothing wrong with a "better" gun if you can learn to shoot it - just keep "old reliable".

    Take s few lessons (the VERY best investment you can make) and have fun.

    I have been shooting for one year and have met some great people and had a wonderful time learning to shoot better. I remember my first 25 and 50 (74x75 Saturday). Your milestones will be a pleasant memory you will carry with you.

    Also, start shooting ATA. You will improve faster under a bit of pressure.

    Congrats, and many more!

    There are (at least for me) a few 1st 25's out:

    the first ever, ( for me it was Skeet round in league)

    the first ever in league, gosh I loved that hat.

    First ever in Registered shoot.

    First ever in a shoot Off, man was that a rush! second ever shootoff was more nerve racking then the first, I didn't have the rush going that I had the first time.

    SO

    Good Job, Great shooting, and my you always shoot will, and have a few more firsts!

    And by the way.........










    WE WANT THAT HAT!

    It will make a great wall hanger when we are done with it!!!!!!!!
