I took the day to practice shoot...I believe I got two shots in at 25 yards. Time to put the kids to bed and turn on the night lights.

Thanks TT.
Reb...I had a similarly annoying session.
Total Day 1: 10 3/16”
25 yard: 3/16” !
13 yd: 5”=>10” !

I was so annoyed at the 13 yard shot I pulled and forgot to take pic.

Pretty nasty outside but I talked myself into shooting and plucked horribly at 25. I should take a mulligan...who do I give my dollar?

My Day 3: long shot low, close one not too bad; no measure.
