Today was the first Swiss rifle match for 2016 at Bucks County Fish & Game.
Here is my shooting station.
Fellow competitors to my right.
How did I do? Well, let’s just say that it was merely a warm up for the rest of the year.
I did struggle today in focusing on the targets. But as the match progressed, I did improve at the end. In the Obligatorisch, I scored exactly the same as I did in the first round of 2015. A tally of 56 points is a full ten points below what I need.
Moving into the Feldschiessen, I choked. A miserable 40 points to cry over into my whiskey!
But in the Einsellwettschiessen I pulled it togther. Here is the resulting target awarding me a 79. Six points shy of a silver medal! Come on next month!
