    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!

    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.

    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 :confused:
