Further work including prize distribution will have to wait due to a family emergency. I will be back in S.A. NLT Sunday, so next week I should be able to wrap things up.
AHA!! The cat's out of the bag! I will allow that I used 2 sandbags for front support, and the iron sights hurt me somewhat. S-D, bench rests were legal in open class as long as you had the stock pulled into your shoulder. I won't go quite that far, because as far as I'm concerned it then becomes the weapon more than the shooter. Just my opinion, and I won't hold it against anyone else who needs that crutch( ). But I'll also admit I'll be using a scope next match too!scamp_daddy said:Been thinkin on a way ta rest the buttstock so's it will slide on the bags.
Maybe next year the use of a bench style rest will be allowed. Not talking about one that clamps the gun to it like the old rail guns or the sleds. Just an adjustable height/level rest.
Look forward to your post's on your workup's on so many things and your knowledge is enlightening.
3WB,L4E........ It's a challenge I look forward to.
>>>>> NEXT YEAR<<<<<
And you were absolutely right. I just re-read the rules again, and never noticed the exclusion of a "rest". I guess I just keyed on the shoulder and trigger emphasis. I would think you could have used your 2nd hand under the pistol grip as an additional support in that area though. We have a year to tweak the rules now. I'm just glad we got this one in successfully (excluding of course the wussies who didn't send in sheets!), and I look forward to next year.scamp_daddy said:Due to the wording of the match no benchrest device was used and the stock resting against the shoulder was not violated. Fact of the matter was I used two sand/bean bags one for the front forearm and one below the magazine. The one below the magazine was utilized by holding the grip with the thumb,index,and second fingers and using the heel of the hand against the bag. Not the perfect hold but it worked.
You mean I could have used the "rest"?
That was my understanding of the rules too, but we were probably remembering some of the online discussion instead of the actual rules. I thought I remembered the unlimited class allowing bipod-like devices to support the forend, but the shooter had to support the back and shoulder the weapon (no rifle rests or sleds).3wbdriver said:I guess I just keyed on the shoulder and trigger emphasis.

Come on man, I feel bad enough already....excluding of course the wussies who didn't send in sheets!
Me too!I look forward to next year.
And so I did. I have measured the groups. What I did was first measure the 5 yd target, then the 10 yd target, and finally, add the two together.3wbdriver said:Actually I just re-read the rules, and you do address tie breakers in there. Have you tried that method yet?
Congrats to you to! You have a fine P3 holster coming, along with some other goodies.CHW111 said:Txc , I thank you for putting this on,hope all is well with you and your family. I'll be looking forward too the next one,IT HAS BEEN FUN. 8)
