Ok I now have 4 matches under my belt. I am becoming more confident. I dont worry so much about what I am doing. I now have a shortbarreled 97, a Norinco. It sure has made a huge difference in my times. I finally cleaned a stage Sunday, as a matter of fact I cleaned two of them. I am not totally sure but I think I only had around 4 or so total misses. I am still having some rifle trouble but I think its cured for the moment. That seems to be the area where I need to pick up some time. I am just not used to shooting rifle free hand.
I still dont have my good leather yet and I hope it gets here soon. Last time I checked it hadnt been started yet.
I sure wish I could shoot more but those of you that have small kids know how that goes. If I can shoot one match a month Ill be happy for now.
I am thinking of going to a Marlin soon. Not sure how to swing it money wise but the 92 is just a little too slow and I would like a shorter barrel too.
Maybe I can get rid of one of my 97's.
Well time is short for this installment I ll get back when I can.

Diary of a new shooter part heck I dont eve

Well sounds like yer gettin the hang o things quicker than I am. Been shootin fer bout 6 months and think I finally cleaned one last Month. As fer changin to a Marlin do some checkin first, I got one in 38/357 and SWC bullets are a pain to load that dang little shoulder hangs up on sumptin in there. So gonna have to try some RNFP I guess, durn but them SWC sure shoot good tho. OH well. Charlie Bull :twisted:

Howdy DB,

Sounds like yer gittin the hang of it! 8)

Am wunderin wat is slowin ya down wif that 92 though. I have two 92s and luv em! One is an older SRC in .357 and the other is a .45 short rifle. Both of them are capable of shootin faster than I can!

Montana,
Have a Marlin in .357 and like the SWC but my, too, hangs up big time. Now using the Lee molded RNFP and they are great. No hang ups either
