I had so much fun joining you guys on Saturday. Thanks for bringing me along. ToolAA indeed makes everything easier for a completely new long distance shooter such as myself. And SG is always prepared with plenty of rifles and handloads to ensure that we'll get on target. I enjoyed shooting the TC Compass. Now, learning the sad news about R&R, I'll be on a mission to make sure his Ruger 308 bolt action connects on the next outting. I'll also leave the Browning lever action at home (lol).

First time shooting from prone position. First time shooting that far out. Cool part... I met Fidelity, Toolaa and got reacquainted with Squaregrouper.

If anyone has been wanting to try out long range, this is a great laid back way to get involved. Had a blast!
Great seeing you, as well, and connecting with 4g64loser. Agree that the venue is wonderful.

Haven't been to a Frontier Day since then but have shot in multiple LRC matches.
I usually finish closer to the bottom between my caliber choice (.308) and my lack of experience. I learn more every time I'm out there and just try to get better.
Do yourself a favor and just come shoot an LRC. I usually shoot the Friday match with a friend of mine on Squad 2, you're welcome to squad with us anytime.
Thank you very much! I will take you up on that sometime this season. I look forward to seeing you there. Will shoot a PM your way when I decide to do a LRC.

It all sounds nice but makes me miss Colorado, and the abundant free shooting in open land.
