    Thumbs up Young shooters

    I love real stories like this. Thanks Jim for posting. Maybe this is not correct forum for this, but I'm gonna do it anyway.
    We have what I call "Orange dot Shoot" close to where I live. (S.E. NC) We have as many as 32 shooters. Shoots starts like this.
    One shooter @ a time, target is 1-1/2" orange sticker w/black diamond in center, pasted on 9" paper plate. Everyone gets 2 shots @ this dot. This is 200 yd comp. Anyone that hits dot is in,, if you miss you're out. Each competitor has his own numbered plate w/dot. Next round the orange dot is one inch,, this continues for three rounds. Hits are in,, misses are out. Next, the dot is reduced to 1/2" lAST MAN STANDING , GETS THE MONEY IN THE POT. This year, aan Eleven year old boy won this match and $300 pot money. I found a Benchrest rifle, w/1987 Teddy action and Scoville stock. It was in Texas,, amd Mr. Larry Baggett was the gun smith. The boy's name is Wesley. He beat 4 competitors that had won this match more than twice each. I was tickled pinker than usual, seeing Wesley win. He actuall touched the 1/2" portion of the dot 7 out of 8 shots
    No rest ,, only sand filled bags the size of a small pillow case for the rest.
    Yes, good shooting Gage

    Tommy, how does the above relate to the shoot? Is that what Wesley shot?

    Thumbs up Shoot

    That was the rifle young Wesley was shooting,, I saw it on Benchrest Central, told his grandfather about it. He Purchased from deceased owner's wife, because he and his grandson wanted another rifle to shoot. Previously I found him a rifle owned by Jack Neary, he purchased it, but sold it two years later. Wesley loves to hunt and shoot.

    Providing a means for young folks to get out and shoot can become a tremendous joy in life. Two great examples of building self control, self esteem, being productive and becoming responsible adults at a very young age. The joy from thier accomplishments priceless!
