    I just wanted to say again how good of a time I had. I always thought I was a decent shot with my pistol, but today really showed me I need A LOT more work. Taking slow deliberate shots at paper, vs trying to move/shoot fast really opened my eyes to how much more training I need. I will definitely be doing more matches, weather at PHA or closer to Raleigh. I also want to thank the squad 2 RO's, they were great being patient/helpful for first time competition shooters.

    Glad you made it out! So very true what you said about target shooting vs. competition shooting. It is a whole different world and I'm glad that you plan to shoot more matches and get some more training. We have such great training available here in NC!

    Mr. Psaros....I terrible with names. I was the short, balding, out of shape, occasionally bitching RO (Bill Giddings) who tends to shoot hostages.

    Jeff... I am not a professional, nor did I stay at a Holiday Inn last night. And yes, you ran that rifle well. I did have a chance to watch a lot of shooters today. Most were right hand pistol shooters. Most of the folks, that had issues, were shooting low and left. If I remember, that is an indication that there is jerking or slapping of the trigger as opposed to a smooth squeeze. I saw pistols move prior to the shot breaking.

    I would also like to make a couple of more points (Jeff this is not directed at you)....(I am a guest RO, so please let me know if I need to edit this post).....

    -I have had better results if I don't crowd the barricade. May be a little louder, but you can move more freely and deal with a malfunction quicker.

    -When you are done shooting at a barricade position, take a step or two back to clear and make safe (with the weapon pointed in a safe direction).

    -Also, when charging a weapon or clearing a weapon, it needs to be pointed straight at the berm in front of the shooter. If you happen to have a ND/AD, it will be into the berm and MAY not get you DQ'ed.

    I was one of the ones shooting low left. I'm used to slowly squeezing the trigger concentrating on the front site, and being surprised when the gun goes off. I realized today i wasn't even getting a good front site picture, and was just pulling the trigger hard, trying to get the shot off fast. Which ultimately cost me alot

    Great meeting you! re: the mag change process we were discussing - I completely forgot I had another kydex AR holder in my bag. You are more than welcome to try it out next month if you like.

    Came out today for the first time just to spectate and I must say it looked like a lot of fun and we will certainly be back but next time we will bring guns. We got all the way out there and realized we didn't bring any ear protection. Big thanks to the gentleman whom I think name was Ronnie for helping us out with those. We didn't get to hang around too long as we had some previous obligations to attend to back home. As I said you guys have a very nice facility and it certainly looked like a ton of fun.

    I did want to ask if steel cased ammo was allowed for the matches or brass only?

    Harold: Tulammo is my preferred ammo. Shoots great, is cheap, and saves me the urge to pick up my empty brass.

    My friend Bob who was photographing squad two will have his pics posted soon. I've seen a select few of them so far and I think he got some incredible shots. I can't remember the guy's name in my squad (Charles maybe)...he's a big guy, had a black shirt on, had the brother in the blue shirt...both run really well with some fast trigger pulls. Anyway, I believe Bob got a pic of the bullet exiting the barrel. He was trying all day shooting at 1/5000 and then even 1/6200.

    Now that's what I'm talking about!

    It was absolutely my pleasure. I love having shooters new to competition on my squad.

    VERY cool! I believe you are talking about Charles Linker who typical finishes 1st or 2nd and is obviously a helluva shooter. Can't wait to see the pics.

    A few notes about the posted scores.
    Kevin Sallaz is the only shooter to shoot all stages clean.
    Mike Crowell came in first in the Rimfire Division (89.60) and second in the Centerfire Optics Division (89.78).
    Randall Strickland, a senior and 1st time shooter from Mt. Airy, using a Ruger 10/22 with open sights and a Ruger Mark II .22lr pistol shot 4 clean stages with a score of 257.06. Kevin Salaz let him borrow some extra mags for the pistol so he could shot the stages with pistol.

    If one of the administators of this forum could tell me what happens to the alignment of the scores when I post them. I type the headings (Division Stage Scores
    Name [ 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - Total - Clean Stages) so they are centered and spaced correctly for the following scores, but when I post them they then are totally out of alignment. I even tried to type them on a Word document then cut and paste them and that also doesn't work.

    An idea may be to either add an add-on to the forum which would allow users to add a table to their posts (this is an admin level decision and implementation) or perhaps use google docs and create a table/spreadsheet there and imbed or link to it. Copying and pasting text from MS Word into the forum will likely always present formatting issues, especially when trying to line everything up under columns and rows.

    If I dig up some free time in the next week, I'll take the scores data here and put it into a Google docs spreadsheet to show what it can do.

    haha, appropriate, I own 2 copies of the movie, as well as a digital copy on my computer, and the soundtrack. I'm sure any naval aviators on this forum will face palm the shit out of me for this but I love me some Top Gun, no shame. You guys will definitely be seeing more of me, hopefully next time with a rifle that doesn't short stroke on every stage.

    A healthy amount of lube and leaving those soft point Silver Bear's at home should cure that problem. No other reason that BCM should be doing that.
    Actually, didn't it run them fine after you got lubed up?

    That's what I was thinking: Google Docs spreadsheet. Set the privacy to public with edit restriction, and just post the link in the match thread here.

    It was working better for one stage then began having the issue again so I just started using Cristobal's rifle. It does however run PMC with no issues so I think it should be fine with some different ammo. It also nailed the dead center of the paper when we were zeroing it on the very first shot, love me some BCM goodness.
