IMG_3313The above photo is of the #1 Target used today at the first ever Reese Bottom Bench Rest Match using the Shotmarker E-Target System to both Score and Measure the shooter’s five shot groups.  The virtual ‘X’ is in the open space below the paper target.  Click to enlarge and see how few bullets actually hit the paper


As many of you know, I recently had the privilege of attending the 2019 Shot Show in Las Vagas.  I owe Britt Jones at Backwater Custom Rifles a big THANK YOU for his help getting me there.  While there, I had a photo op with Mrs. Dana Loesch, one of the faces of the NRA.
