First clean match!

Recommended Posts

I've been playin' this here game since 2004, and the closest I've ever come to a clean match was a 4 stage warm-up a few years ago. Until this past Saturday! I finally managed to slow my trigger finger down just that tiniest little skosh that let me get the front sight on the target before the bullet started downrange! I know, I know, if yer shootin' clean ya ain't shootin' fast enough, and I keep tellin' Shot Z Lady that front sights are overrated, but this time I managed to put a whole match together and I'm braggin'! :D

My wife and I both shot our 1st clean matches on the same day. I've shot 4 more and several with 1 miss. Love to hear that "spotters say clean."

Congratulations!  I've had two... but I do say clean matches are overrated!  My first clean match was Ides of March 2 years ago in Florida. I was trying not to think about it and my hubby came to watch the last stage .. he said, "if it takes you 3 minutes to hit all the targets, that's ok!  Just hit them all!"  No pressure! :D

 

Happy for you!!

You're in high cotton now cowboy!

 

Congratulations on a major milestone in this sport/hobby/obsession

 

there is only one Top Gun but everyone has a real chance at shooting clean

 

wonder if the Stealth Bullet Shooting Society is still operating???  You could get your OGB now

Congrats!

 

I drill out the primer pocket on a case from the match, string it on a saddle string and hang it from my cart. I have 7 now I think, including two 45-70 cases from Cody Dixon Matches. I'm hoping to hang a 45ACP on there after my next WB match!
