    Thanks everyone for the kind words! I had a great time, made all the sweeter by having my 9 year old son Dean with me. The conditions were perfect for shooting. I was rested for a change. Got some great advise from Ede at dinner the night before! I changed my recipe for my 9mm reloads two days before which really helped my groups. And basically was "in the zone" while shooting, especially on the plates, which just looked like man-hole-covers! My slowest run was 2.35 sec and my fastest was 2.25 for a total of 9.28 sec with the unlimited gun on the plates. That was fun!!

    There is one thing though which should be noted. As much as I like the new format with the variety of courses of fire (I really think it was needed to spice things up), some of these new options are a bit faster to shoot than the old courses were, in my opinion at least. The ones at Brighton were faster. I'd be reluctant to claim that this was a better score than Dale or even some posted by others previously who may have shot a tougher course of fire. It may not be apples to oranges but maybe oranges to tangerines!

    For those of you who I saw at the range, thanks for saying hello. Got a chance to meet Glockess and saw Dennis and some of the Indy crowd. Anyway, thanks again for the encouragement and I look forward to seeing you in Conyers!!

    Now I am really hurt. I gave old (I use that term very loosely here) Ede some of my best GAP Ammo at Ft. Benning and he never gave me any good advise. :tongueout: :tongueout: :tongueout: :rofl: :banana:

    Actually your first sentence says it all for any new or amature class shooter. As for Grady being so personable; that's just Grady and other super Master Class shooters like, Bobby Carver, Dale Rhea and Tony Clemens. They put their knowledge, skills and personality into the sport to not only do great themselves but also to help others gain knowledge and skill. I am an extremely mediocre amature class shooter and I have not yet met any Matser Class shooter in GSSF who was not more than happy to help with good pointers and have always treated me no differently than any other shooter. That is one of many great things about GSSF. I am probably the low man on the totem pole as far as shooting with Team Carver but I get the same encouragement as any other team member, have some good scores occassionally and am made to feel right at home as a Team Carver Member. I am honored and proud to be a Team Member.:thumbsup:

    I felt sorry for the "Old Guy" and since I am a transplanted "Buckeye" I thought it was only appropriate to show him a little "Southern Hospitality" .:tongueout: :wavey: :rofl: :rofl:

    What a gentleman... I know people that can sniff out GAP ammo at 1000 yds; and tackle you for it. :supergrin:

    Well done, Suh!

    Grady,

    Congratulations on a GREAT match. Sorry for the late post, I just came off a two week road trip and just now saw the news. What a great run on the plates YOU DA MAN!!!.

    I agree that some of the new setups seem faster but you had to shoot very well to do what you did in any case.

    Again congratulations.

    “He’s on our team.”


    Dale
