About the Blog

Educating fellow Jews about the sporting and defensive use of firearms. Especially Jews in North America, too many of whom are instilled with the belief that guns aren't for nice Jewish boys and girls.

If you know of notable Jewish shooters that should be documented on the blog, even if it is only at the local club level, I am happy to report and profile them. And don't be shy if that person to be documented is you! Please drop me a line at jewishmarksman at gmail dot com. Also follow me on twitter @JMarksmanship.

Another High Master Score for the Jewish Marksman

I had a good weekend match, shot 97% on the nose for a High Master score. I did not win the match (came in 3rd), but had a lot of fun because going into the final stage it was anybody's ball game, and the top three shooters were all one point separated from the next.

I also shot a 191 standing, which is a new personal best. If I can get over my start-of-match jitters, which last for about 10 minutes, I think I can improve on that even more....

I even had an alibi string during the match, my rifle jammed during feeding immediately after a magazine change during rapid sitting. I am not sure what happened, probably I did not slam the magazine home hard enough and the problem did not repeat. The situation distracted me a little more than it should have, and I shot a 193 whereas I usually shoot 197 and above for both seated and rapid prone. It carried over into my prone rapid with a 195. I got my act together in slow prone though.

I competed as a Master, even though the NRA still has me classified as a Sharpshooter!
