And they loose tha match. Speaking of myself, that is. LDS
If you have ever shot at Manatee you would know it does happen.
Now the 1,000 is closed for renovation but when another re-opens that will again be a topic of discussion. Seems wind from the east covers most of the exposed range. Back in the last 400 yard "tunnel" it comes over lower banks, hits higher banks and blows back hard the opposite direction. Only those that see it lose their mind, temporarily.
In most cases, when the flags point at one another you should view that as a "Do Not Enter" sign and wait for the signal to change.
Seems like the normal condition from May through September at Palo Alto. I have learned to love and respect mirage above all others.
This perfectly defines the Harris range in Minnesota. On top of that, figure in the vertical winds at that range and you will need to be chemically sedated!
Raton is good at that as well.
What do you do when you run out of time waiting?
Poke and hope.
I'm actually a big fan of the ICFRA pair firing format where you only get 45 seconds to make up your mind and send it.
ORSA every match.
Camp Grayling in Michigan.......
At Manatee I sight in in the most frequent condition and when I see that condition I hold in the middle and shoot.
I hate when each side is coming from the opposite direction, and the center flags are blowing straight up. I've seen this more than once at Raton.
It makes me need sedatives back at the motel
At Manatee Ive seen the large American flag blowing north , flags at 100 and 200 blowing east and flags all the way to the target each blowing in a different direction than the one further down the line.
You've got that right Steve! Especially about the time the 11AM switch blows through.
The range at the Marine Barracks at Mare Island Naval Shipyard. During the standing portion of a High Power Match, the best you could do when the wind was blowing, was try to catch the bull when the front sight was passing through.
While at a High Power match at Lodi Wi. (Decades ago) each of the four wind flags was blowing in a different direction. I said chuck it and didn't adjust for anything. Shot almost my norm.
