“The right of citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard against the tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible.” — Senator Hubert H. Humphrey (D-MN)

While I Entertained Family
Last weekend I had family in from out of town. We went canoeing, saw the new new Avengers movies, ate too much, and had a great visit.
Meanwhile, a friend and occasional reader of the blog went to shoot the Eastern CMP Games. He shot four different courses over a three day period. His best was the smallbore.
581 out of 600, with 23 X. Here's his score sheet, minus the names.
This was good enough for a silver medal. The top shooter, 16 years old, shot a 600. Here's the course of fire. I would point out that it includes 2 strings of standing fire, one of them rapid.
