Up to TEN (10) things related to the shooting sports (hunting, IHSMA, ATA, NSCA, IDPA, collecting, etc) that you'd like to accomplish/improve/change/buy/etc...

I'll start :D


2013

1. Get Rem M31 #1 up and running again.

2. Build up an inventory of milsurp/vintage/classic rifles, from Swede Mausers to K31s to M1 Carbines to an M1A.

3. Break into the 90s for Sporting Clays.

4. Get my first 50 straight (25 pair) in Doubles.

5. Break another 100 straight.

6. Start shooting Olympic (Bunker) trap.

7. Learn to reload.

8. Shoot ATA again

9. Get better at shooting handguns (get rid of my flinch)

10. Get better at handicap


Happy New Year all!

1) To go the entire year without adjusting the comb on my trap gun or removing my FULL choke tube for any reason.

2) Get prescription Decot shooting glasses.

3) No orthopedic surgeries.

4) Finally locate an all-original 1st Series Colt Woodsman Match Target pistol, in 97% condition or better, at a reasonable price.

Buy 3 or 4 acres, build a big garage and have living quarters (2500 sq ft.) over it with a balcony that goes around the entire living quarters ... Have two lifts, a wash bay, maybe a spray booth, parking for at least 20/25 cars and two complete work benches besides a man cave in one corner of it with a walk in gun safe ... I have the plans, just need to find a nice piece of property to make it work ... If not in 2013, one of these days ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

Oh and shoot a few registered targets at the local club ...

For 2013... to continue to have some safe fun on the Trap Field with my squad mates and not take the game too seriously... and to stay with one gun and one load for the entire year and see what happens.

Happy & Healthy New Year Guys!

My 2013 resolution: Keep my "Frigging Head" on the stock during the entire duration of the shot process. When I miss a shot, it's all about lifting my head and I have the softest shooting guns I can build. If anyone has any good ideas as to how to solve the problem other than "fish hooks" attached to my gonads, I would like to here it.

Shot410 - that's a great resolution. When I start shooting like an idiot, it's usually for the same reason.

Oscar - I wasn't kidding. If you EVER see me on a trap field using anything but a FULL or EXTRA FULL choke, don't ask any questions - just walk up and Happy Slap me like a nasty muslim. Click the link if you don't understand. Use the shovel method if there's one handy.

I'll remember the hardest trap targets for me is the target that is a straightaway from station 3 as follows: (1) when on station 1 do not move the gun right when I get this target; and (2) when on station 5 do not move the gun left when I get this target. Hold the gun in such a manner that will eliminate #1 & 2 as stated in the preceding sentence. BT100dc

Shoot 4000 ATA combined targets (AT, that is). Get to Cardinal for State or other event. IA, MN, and SD state shoots. Then get a life come september.
