Notice anything strange about this picture? The signs tell you what is to the left and the right but not straight ahead. I guess there is nothing out there--except that little old nuclear facility spouting steam in the distance.
Postal match July 2005
Pathetic. 10 shots from 50 yards, "rapid fire", open sights, centerfire rifle, offhand. I have hit 18" targets 7 times out of 10 at 200 yards offhand before. This is terrible performance. With starting conditions of an unloaded gun on the table in front of me to when I fired the 10th shot I took 55 seconds. I need to practice more.
