So we were finished up with the match at Tac Pro and headed back to Geordie Richardson’s place http://outbackweldingtargets.com/ and having a bit of fun. Took three shots to hit the 1000 yard 24″ x 36″ plate with the 6.5 Creedmoor and earned myself dinner!
Well the match is over! With 4 inches of rain yesterday we only ended up shooting paper events. Today the weather cleared up and we shot out to 1200! I ended up 13th and Elana ended up 39th in her first sniper match and won a Shiner Bock mountain bike! Many lessons learned that will be discussed on the next radio show this week.
Well the first day is over. With three inches of rain and finding out my rail was loose just before the first stage it made it kind of interesting. Took four stages to get a good zero. Elana is having fun inspite of this being her first match with a brand new gun. She nailed the last stage of the day blowing up the exploding target before anyone anyone else on the line! More to come!
We are back for good this time! Welcome to the new and improved Practical Shooting 2012 with Matt Burkett. This episode I talk to Mike Elliott of Team Predator Tactical about the mental game aspects of practical shooting.
Elana and I are on the way to TacPro Shooting Center in Mingus Texas. 200 rounds of long range rifle out to 1200 yards and a hundred rounds of pistol. We are both using the 6.5 creedmoor with 140 amax Hornady bullets. Hope to catch up with everyone there!
This episode I host a conference call with some students training for the Iron Man 3 Gun Competition.
