    Did our 1st match of the year a 600. My son won 1st in Jr. class and 10th overall. He did really well considering the talent on this one. Seems the long winter and cabin fever brought out some really talented marksman. Cool seeing my son compete w/ them.

    I should update: He did the best he's ever done last match. High Jr again but more importantly, 4th overall at 15 years old. He missed 3rd by one shot!

    He shot a 571-10X at 600 yards in F/TR.

    Very proud of him.

    Congratulations. Nice to see a father/son competition. My daughter and I enjoy trap or 5 stand.

    Spent the winter having him learn reading wind flags. 1st 1,000 yards match of the season. There was 18 people in his class. At 16 years old up against 6 Army guys, 2 LEO's and 10 really good F class shooters, he took 4th place overall! :)

    Pretty damn good shooting for a 16 year old. Congrats!
    Hope you don't have to walk down to set your own targets.

    Thanks.

    In F class shooting you are in a target "pit". You pull a large target on a frame down, mark it and send it back up for the shooter opposite of your relay. So when you are shooting, you are at firing line and stay there until done.
