Too Wet to Shoot

Postby allaboutshooting » May 26th, 2011, 3:34 am

We've had such wet weather here in Southern Illinois that I've not been able to get to the range for several days now. We've been dodging tornadoes and thunder storms all week.

The still target shooting season is in full swing now. Doris and I went to Jackson, Tennessee last weekend and she won the Mid-South Still Target Shoot Championship in the 20 gauge open class. She out shot everyone, including her husband, and using her factory stock Remington 870 Express, beat all the men using custom bolt action guns. It was a good way to start the season.

We'll be traveling to various shoots for the next 5 months leading up to the world championship shoot in October.

I hope you all had a great spring season.

Thanks,
Clark

Congratulations, Clark, to both you and Dorris on your success in Tennessee recently!

It's been awful wet here as well and I've been trying to get out to the range myself and sight in my .222 and .270 rifles. The weather looks like it will be clearing very soon so I hope to get out and shoot early next week.

Good luck to you and Doris in your future still-target competitions and keep us posted as to how well you all do!

Congratulations to Doris on her win and I hope this is the start of a winning streak for her and you! Good luck dodging the tornadoes and nasty weather it is shaping up to be one hell of a nasty summer.

I have conveyed your congratulations to Doris. She's very appreciative and asked me to thank each of you.

Doris has no bad shooting habits. She only began shooting shotguns in 2006, after following me around to various shooting events for many years. She's a life-long musician and accustomed to doing the same thing, the same way, time after time, which has served her well in shooting.

I'm always amazed when I watch her shoot. She can read the wind very well and that really helps in still target shooting. Plus, she's very steady.

Hopefully, we'll both be able to shoot at the range soon and I'll take notes.

Thanks,
Clark
