Was a GREAT time!

 

If Taos and his wife are willing to put one of these on again, I'd HIGHLY recommend you make it!

 

Great folks, every single one of them!

We will get more pics up later when we all get home and caught up with work.

As of now the rest of the group is still on the road or in the air.

 

Be safe you guys still traveling home!

 

To be sure, it was the event of a lifetime.

One of camaraderie, patriotism and marksmanship.

Brothers in arms for sure!

Steelborn1 looks like someone left redbarron6 in the dryer too long. :hysterical3:

BlueFeather watches the line. This is the first shot string after the first instructional block.
There is a lot that goes into making a rifle shoot well, the handler being first on the list.

 

Learn to drive a rifle or you will ride a boxcar.

This was my first time shooting over 200 yards. And I had only done that with a red dot on my AR. I had zeroed my Savage 10 at 100 yards before this trip. Nothing longer than that.

 

Thanks to great instructors and great spotters, I was soon hitting gongs at 500 and 1300 yards. By the time we went back to 300 or 400 yards, it seemed easy.

 

By the end, we could all hit clay pigeons at 400 and 500 yards. I never thought that was possible in my first weekend of shooting over 100 yards with a brand new rifle and scope.

 

And the facilities were really nice too. Clean, organized and full of history with the help of our Appleseed instructors.

 

I plan to bring my kids back here when they're mature enough.

 

My thanks to everyone who was able to show up, it was a great time.

Just got back to the hotel and unloaded the truck. Still have a rifle to clean, bags to unpack and other stuff to do.

 

I am exhausted but I'd do it again in a heartbeat. I can not say enough about Taos and the MRS. They know how to show shooters a good time. The facility is by far the most impressive I have ever been too and even still this morning I was awe struck by the terrain and scenery of that part of NM.

 

For those that did not show, you missed one hell of a good time all around. Each day was filled with challenges, rewards, and education.

 

I'll post up more later but the work is not over yet.
