Another ancedote. The best match day I ever shot……..

Being in Colorado, you'd think we shoot in snowstorms often. That's not true. If the forecast on the day prior called for much snow the next, the match was usually cancelled. So, we didn't shoot in snow very often.

One day though, snow settled in just as the match started. I lost the first match, then blew the second due do my rear bag slipping just at trigger break. But….the shot landed exactly where the crosshairs were when the rifle went off.

Through a 36X scope, the swirling snow made it appear that we had near hurricane force winds going on, and the natural tendency was to hold hard upwind. My bag slip on the previous shot told me different.

I held center of target for the rest of the day while my companions kept compensating for a non-existent wind. I won the next 19 straight matches.

That was a really fun day.
