Ok, here goes.
I apologize for the general lamness of this video but I had to get out there and shoot! Better results to follow, I hope.

Yes it is a good group!  Not bad considering the weather and you feeling under the weather.

MJ

I just knew I would wake up to see a vid from you! Sick, and in the snow, you sure did "man up" :)

I have no doubt you will max out your badge @10m. In next.. Probably as I am typing :)

Hey MJ, I have a question. I have a bunch of this 1745 tubing, but I can't seem to get accuracy out of it.. I set it up single strand on my scout and the shots were everywhere! Do you have any tips for tubes?

I don't shoot well with single tubes, either. Here's what I know about looped tubes but for singles you're on your own.

Alright, I woke up early this morning and got to shooting. Using my Scout with looped 1745 tubes and 7/16" steel I managed to get 3 in the target. Not my best shooting, but I figured its a place to start. Please ignore shorts with boots and no socks, it was early.

 

BTW, it's 37F out, with a wind chill that makes it feel 28F

Great job! I know that paper was getting to your head and the camera is added pressure. Remember this is on going and the purpose of this is not only to qualify, but also get you shooting with a goal, so don't beat yourself up :)

Looking forward to seeing more
