    I have never done a Turkey shoot but have shot lots of archery competitions.

    If you ever think that you are an expert go to a major event and you will get put in your place really quick!

    Competitions will put you back into reality quick. There is a 19yo kids by me who won the county match by placing 9out of 10 in the black at 600 yards without a scope on a 308! No one else came close to his abilities. That would be tough with a scope.

    Not with 19yr old eyes! 47yr old eyes, however....that's a different story!

    Regardless of young eyes you still have to be able to dope the wind and know your bullet drop at 600 yards plus have a consistent hold shot to shot. That 19 year old had a lot of skill. The 308/7.62 Nato is perfectly capable of 1000 yard shots in the right hands.

    It was a joke!!! As I've said before on here, I shot 1K comp back in the early 90's.

    I was not referring to your post. I should have quoted Paul76 to have avoided any confusion. I drop in occasionally in this thread so I must have missed you saying you have shot 1K matches back when. I was into DCRA shooting not too many years before you were shooting 1K.

    At 19 I had theyes for it just not the skills. 1 maybe 2 out of ten at 150 was a great day for me. That kids mom was a skilled Mark’s woman with a rifle doing comps in the military and his father was doing military comps with a pistol. So part is in his genes and he definitely had good teachers.

    I'm considering a single barrel shotgun. Assuming I can find somewhere local where I can shoot single barrel DTL. Mostly for the challenge ��

    So I found a clay ground that is happy for me to shoot single barrel DTL. So today I went to purchase a shotgun I had my eye on.

    There were actually 2. One for 40 and an older less attractive one for 25, the wife budgeted me to 40 the price of the higher one. I liked both so the guy at the shop offered me both for 50.
