I strugled a bit this Spring but last month's match overall felt like a big improvement.
77 prone, 83 rapid, 78 standing = 238

One of the old timers lent me a padded shooting mat which really helped cushion my elbow from the concrete.

I've been using the SG with flip sight, and PSD 86.

Sighters left, Prone slow right.


I think if I'm more consistant, keeping in the black is within the gun's capability.
The flyer on the sighter target being an extreme example of not being consistant.

Got a little sloppy with the rapid, and couldn't lock into as stable of an off hand this month. 
This carbine is definately capable.
Prone group is reasonably tight.  Maybe as tight as I've shot in these competitions.

  I really appreciate you continuing to post your targets, you're getting better and better. Oh how I wish there were carbine matches near me!!

 Your prone group, although a little east of center, looks pretty good. Was that rapid or slow fire?

Thanks. That's prone slow.  We're given 15 minutes total for sighters and record.
About halfway through the shots for record I decided using the hasty sling could help.  I wish I had checked the spotting scope at that point. 

I had a misfeed on the second cartridge in rapid.  Fortunately was able to get it to close without dumping it.  So I lost my cadence and maybe why I rushed and strung them out.
Standing - I just don't know.  My feet and natural point of aim were right on, but I wasn't able to get the muzzle as stable and locked in as last month.  Maybe the heat. maybe the lack of dry fire practice. Not sure. 

Kindof embaressing but i did get a photo of them.


PS. When I looked at the results today, apparently what looks like a 7 was touching the 8 ring, so the slow prone total is 86. 
My score for July's match; 86 prone, 77 rapid, 60 standing = 223.

I beleive I can pull it together and shoot at least in the 80s in all three positions. 
Practice and maybe a notebook with observations about each shot like the military scorebooks.

I wish there was an actual carbine match around here too; but I'm glad they let me play with the big boys. :)
