That was a fail!

Okay, so I fell short on my challenge, but I will still continue to post daily from today on.....

Friday was spent at Kings Dominion with the grandson.  He had a blast and we recovered. LOL
Saturday was spent recovery from said adventure and preparing for my intensive class this week at Liberty.

Sunday was spent also getting assignments done and driving down to Lynchburg.  I will admit that blogging was the last thing on my mind the last three days.

I will do better even though the posts will probably be short due to class and homework. :-)

What was under YOUR car today? -- Day 3

This little guy was under mine.  He chilled there for awhile, and then decided to go on his merry way.... :-)

First Competition Results--Day 2 of My 31 Day July Challenge

I went to my first competition this past Saturday, June 28th.  It was a long range challenge match with distances ranging from 530 yards up to over 1100 yards.

It was only the second time I had ever shot this particular rifle let alone trying to shoot at these distances, so my only goal was to just hit at least one target.  I am happy to say I surpassed my goal by three! :-)  My longest successful shot was at 859 yards, which was awesome!

I am also proud to say that I did not come in last, but 41st place out of a field of 43 competitors.  I might just have to do more challenges in different areas of shooting!

This from the first section.  These are the "close" targets ranging between 530-600 yards.

Challenging myself

I am going to post each day of July.

Since I have not gone to bed yet, I am counting this as still the first day! :-)

My day

So, I am going to my first long distance match on the 28th of this month.  Since I am going to be in a match, I should shoot the gun before hand....

This is what I shot today:

Since the farthest I can shoot locally is only 100 yards we figured it was at least better than nothing.  I at least got used to the scope, using a bean bag for support, and all that fun stuff.

Here is how I did:

I think I did very well for a first time at this distance and this rifle. :-)

School's out for the summer.....

At least the one that I work at.  I cannot say the same for MY classes. LOL

This will give me some more time to do my classwork though, and get the range more often. (Hopefully!)

About a month ago I got a new vehicle, a Jeep Cherokee.  These just came in today:

My wonderful DH got these for me.  The tags say "MY 45XDS."  I put them on as soon as I got a screwdriver after the mail came! LOL

Oh.... I will be going to my first long range shoot later this month.  Will post pictures afterwards.

Gun Show

So, I worked the Capital Gun Show this past Saturday.  I had a BALL!  I got to talk to a lot of really nice people and only one jerk. LOL

I don't usually talked about people like that, but this guy fits the bill.  I was "working" the handguns area and after this gentleman had spent a few minutes looking at them, I asked them if there was anything I could help him with (since I had the key to unlock any he might want to look at closer), and his response "I will ask him (pointing to the gentleman behind the table and on the other side of the area) if I need something."  I did not think anything of it and told my other guy about it thinking it was a friend, but he had never seen the guy before.  I guess he just did not want to "talk guns" to a woman!  Oh well... his loss.

Next gun show I will be working will be June 7th!  Come by and see me. :-)
