Jan/Feb ePostal range day

I hit the range today to shoot Merle's Jan/Feb ePostal match. Normally the range is pretty busy [meaning all benches full and a waiting list] this time of year. But it rained this AM and that seemed to keep the numbers down. Last time the range was this empty was during that football match a few weeks back.

Here is one of my worst... Stage 3, off hand only. One hit, two misses and two not even on the paper.

I don't worry too much about the scores mostly because the local range minimum distance is 11 yards, better than 50% further than spec'd in the course of fire. Doesn't matter... It's a good excuse to hit the range with a mission. I sent Merle a rimfire score of 16 and centerfire score of 11.

You can play too! Merle's match runs through the end of February. Then Mr. C's monthly ePostal starts up in March.

Finally, noticed something different as I was cleaning up to come home. A guy and a girl set up on the next bench, early to mid-20's, looks like it could be a date. They had one gun, might've been a centerfire Glock, but I didn't get a decent look. They prepped a target for the next cease fire and started loading magazines.

The interesting part is, the gun is hers and he is the noob! YOU GO GIRL! We need more like you! Great job.
