Good shooting, C-dub! You'll get that straight patch; I have no doubt. I remember the first time I saw you shoot. You had a short barreled 12 ga as I remember and the club had to check out your gun..
Still shooting that Benelli 3-gun. It would not be acceptable for a sanctioned match, but is okay for club stuff. Maybe I’ll get myself a longer barrel for it one of these days, but I just got a new pelican case for it and did the cutout for the shorter barrel. Or I could just try the 20 gauge O/U I got for my daughter to use. Since she discovered boys it’s been left in the safe and hasn’t been out to play in quite awhile now.
I was going to ask how li'l dub was shooting these days. As the father of three daughter's I sympathize. Just a word to the wise. My biggest mistake was not starting wedding accounts along with college savings accounts.
She'd okay. Rough year this year in school. Four AP classes and Pre-AP Pre-Calculus. And a new language because she maxed out on Spanish. One more year to go before college.

Cutting that long hair might help too :cool:
Hmmm, maybe. We'll see, but if I go straight with long hair good luck getting me to cut it. If I go straight with long hair would you consider letting yours grow out to see if you'd go straight?

You're an excellent shot and I have no doubt that you'll go straight soon (ok, that sounded weird...) :lol:

Just a note - it's far more challenging for guys like us who shoot Olympic-style with the gun unmounted; I'm far more impressed with anyone who gets in the 20s unmounted than someone who goes straight with a mounted gun, but that's just me.
I was able to get home in time before my wife took off for work and I told her about almost going straight. She took it well and was also encouraging that I'll get there some day soon.
"rlol"

That does crack me up too. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Almost perfect, again, but worse this time.

Two months sgo my gun club had so many people that wanted into the Wednesday night skeet that they started another up on Thursdays. Finally! I got in and somehow they even elected me as team captain.

A year ow so ago, when shooting with Pawpaw, AndyC, and my daughter I shot 24/25.

Last night I was on my way to my first straight and MISSED the LAST bird. :grumble :cryin

I haven’t run all the numbers yet. Roughly, I think I averaged 20.** - 22.**. It was only a 6-week league, but I think I picked up about 2 birds per round from the beginning to the end.
