    Ian and team put out a really nice video of a field target match held in Minor Hill, Tennessee.

    Did I catch that correctly, a 9.5mm target at 35yrds! :eek:

    Did Harold really say 3/8" at 35yrds or did he mean 3/4"?

    Connor,

    You heard it correctly! It was a 3/8" at 35 yards. We shoot each target twice, so it was rather difficult in the wind. I was holding one mildot left on my first shot and then the wind shifted a bit so I had to hold about half mil dot right on the second shot. Although I dropped a few shots that I really shouldn't have missed, getting that one twice was a little "win" and highlight of the day for me! :)

    It was really great to shoot with Ian and meet his crew. Nice guys.

    And as for the 3/8 at 35 yards, I hit it once. The highlight of my horrible day :)

    Ok guys thanks, I was wondering why I didn't see so many long targets but will kill zones so small you don't need distance!

    Conor,

    He had plenty of long shots on the course too. Quite a few of those were rather difficult as well. One that was note worthy was a 1" kz at 54 yards. I got it once then missed it on the follow up shot. That ended up being the only shot I missed in the first 8 or so lanes. It's just a lottery shooting one of those long ones that small in the wind.

    They did show a lot of those close targets in the video. I can assure you the majority of the course was set at or beyond the allowable rules. (This match was not an AAFTA event, so the match director could set the course anyway he wanted.) I thoroughly enjoyed the course. It was really good practice and let me know what to work on at home.

    Take care,

    Harold

    They kept there targets in a metal safe in the ground and every five mins or so you would get covered in shot from the shot gun ground ??? HOLLY:)

    The safe didn't work though Holly did it? Cos they got all their targets nicked! Never did find out what happened to them.
    They had some very good shooters from the 'early years' of FT though; 'Lord' Long, World & European champ Stuart Lane and Simon Prosser who I seem to remember hammered over targets with a .22 GC2!
