Why do I now have the song from Fiddler on a Roof "Matchmaker, Matchmaker Make me a Match" in my head. :-)Nice work with the ammo. . I still have a brick to shoot in my little Swiss number.
Maybe because it's one of my favorite musicals, right after 'South Pacific'?Tradition!
Good shooting, Art, and it was done with the original tangent rear. Do you use a sling for the other positions?
Somerled,Nope, no sling. I have yet to master the art of using a sling, and I also like to keep it simple. No shooting jacket, no sling, no aperture sight, just me and the old Mauser. I really shoot against myself, not the crowd.To some of the folks there, match shooting is a stylized art. To me, just a way of bettering my skills.
I have to travel a long way to find the stylists. The squirrels in the walnut tree don't seem to mind if I'm wearing a shooting jacket, a morning coat, or holey jeans and a paint-splattered t-shirt. No matter what, they head south when I show up.
I've always believed the old bolt guns were quality. My Turkish mausers are good rifles. Sounds like you put together a winning combination.
Well, hell, why shouldn't you be happy?Even a blind PA squirrel finds a nut SOMETIME.;^]
oh my gosh - I think that's a smile. I really do.
Breda! Perish the thought!I caught my thumb in the bolt... that was a grimace of pain. Yeh, that's the ticket.... a grimace of pain.That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Are you shooting a 55-round CMP-style match? I did my first of those a while back on a borrowed M1 Garand. It was plenty of fun. I'm thinking of doing a bit more of that, maybe with a Finn M-39 or a Swedish Mauser.I don't have any Mauser-caliber Mausers, though.
