During the 2019 MS Steel Challenge Championship, Emily and I RO’d for two flights on Saturday. The first flight was stationary and the second flight was traveling. For my first flight, I RO’d on Outer Limits. In the afternoon, Emily and I RO’d a squad with James Rushing, Grant Kunkel, and Raegan Hearn (Pineapple Shooter). I had a great time visiting with them! Plus, I was able to watch Grant shoot, so that’s a bonus! Did I mention how hot it was? The feel like temperature was 100 degrees at times! It felt like someone was rubbing sandpaper all over my face. I may or may not have forgotten to put on sunscreen the day before…
By the end of the day, I was exhausted. I’m talking saying-the-commands-in-my-sleep exhausted. I am already a sleeptalker/sleepwalker so that part isn’t so crazy. There were several times when I woke myself up saying commands. Emily even said that I kept her up! Now I can literally say I RO in my sleep. Cha-ching!
I shot my rimfire pistols on Friday and my rimfire rifles on Sunday. When the match was over, I noticed that I shot new personal bests with both my pistols! My RFPO time was 83.75 and my RFPI time was 91.62! I am slowly but surely getting faster with my pistols. My goal was to stay in the seventies with both my rifles. My times were 75.34 (RFRI) and 80.38 (RFRO).
I had a great time at this match! We had the opportunity to talk with the Kunkels and McCoys, and that’s always good. See y’all at the Rimfire Challenge World Championship!
I appreciate everyone who made this match possible! Nick Brandt did a great job running this match! Every time I RO, I realize how much work ROs put in. Thank you!
