A humbling experience, it was. But as my shooting buddy said, “A day at the range beats a day in the office anytime”. The Bulldog Shooting Club 2006 Postal Shoot’s Traditional Class consisted of 2 shots each at five 2-7/8”targets, 45 feet away. Two of the 10 shots are “sighters” to the top left target; eight are scored.

In the final tally only one of my eight shots would hit the bullseye; and only one two of my fellow shooter’s eight shots was not a bullseye. Wow!

Humbling yes, but the experience confirmed for me, why I like rifle scopes so much! But more realistically, why range time is so important – not just with one gun in one configuration, but with variety: scoped, open sights, long, intermediate and close ranges. Knowing the characteristics of your firearm in all conditions and configurations makes for more consistent and ultimately, safer shooting.
