    Is Bama Shooting in the Gunny? I"m pretty sure he said he hadn't made matchmeister this year. Only Matchmeisters get invited to participate in the Gunny Right? I could be wrong.

    Dunno... Bama wouldn't lie to me - we shoot on different teams together...

    Speaking of MIA, were is Bama. Must be busy loading his mags with that top-quality steel-cased Monarch. :supergrin:

    From the time they had the last Gunny Challenge in September 2010, I won matchmeister at Pensacola 2010.

    That and I got an invitation.


    ETA- as for filming me, you need to film the guys that can really shoot. David Knight knocked me out of Gunny Challenge; he was knocked out later and 4 others finished in the top 4.

    i'd be willing to bet bama, me and a lot of others all do the same thing. there is no real secrets some are just quicker than others. what they don't do is make mistakes, or minmize their mistakes.

    few years back i shot a clean match and one of the better GSSF shooters told me he's never had a clean match. said he was too fast to not drop a point or two somewhere. no doubt if he slowed down he could shoot clean but for him there was no advantage to slowing down to pick up 1-2 points.

    I got ya Bama. I sort of wondered how the Gunny worked. I knew not just anyone,(not that your just anyone), could show up and shoot it. I remembered in an earlier post Butch talking about getting his invitation. So, i figured you had to be a Matchmeister at least once.

    To quote a 90's one hit wonder,"You can't just be any geek off the street, you gotta be handy with the steel, if you know what I mean." I guess in this case you gotta be handy with the polymer and steel. :tongueout:

    Those mags have been loaded since last week. I was out of town for training the last few days.

    Pick up the rental tonight and roll out of town tomorrow at 6:30 am looking for muzzle blasts and smelling for burnt powder.

    Your Ohio reading misunderstood my Alabama writing. Wrok is just rock with emphasis and drawl on the R.
