Thanks Jeff! It was a fun target to shoot. Wish I could have got a few more subs but I was pleased with what I ended up with. Conditions this particular night were very nice. Nights like those are few and far between around here. Thanks again and thanks to all who voted. I hope to represent our forum well in the finals!
