Today was a beautiful day for a match. Ten people joined me in shooting
the March match, seven brought Major guns, seven brought Minor guns,
four brought revolvers, and ten brought .22's. There were three new
shooters to this match, which hopefully means that attendance will
continue to improve.
Major was won by Jim Burnett with his Clark Custom pin gun. I took
Minor with my brand-new S&W M&P<sub>9</sub>. I also won Revolver with
my S&W 327, and .22 with my Ruger Mk II. Not a bad weekend for a guy
who just turned 50! I think I could have won the overall match, if I
hadn't run out of 9mm ammo, but I did, and Jim Burnett took that match
beating me two out of three for the win.
Next month I'm bringing a Major gun again.
Skip Blecker won the drawing, taking home seven dollars more than his
entrance fee. He got to shoot for free and got a little gas money out
of it, too. It had been a while since he'd attended one of these
matches, but said that the last time he did, he won the drawing too.
Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good?
The next match is Sunday, April 8. Hope to see you there.
