not a lot of Dewar matches shot anymore unless its part of a conventional prone match (Dewar, 100yd, 50m)...

collegiate and the military teams (Army and i think Air Force) dont shoot them anymore. 50m prone and 50m 3-P...

one of my daughter's "team mates" sold his Anschutz 9015 ONE, and got a Pardini GPR1 Top (the one Nico C helped collaborate on) said they have a horrible design on their regulators in that theres no good way to set them, other than just by checking velocity vs Annis, FWB, Walther with a gauge and actual psi...

she started with a used 1903 anschutz but i upgraded to the 1907, mainly because Walther pretty much needs Walther parts and accessories where anschutz can use centra, mec, or others. she needs a new air rifle but i dont know that the precise stock of the 9015 might not be a good fit for her, and have been considering a Walther...

as far as sponsorships and such for juniors, there really isnt a lot here in the states. the American Legion (veterans group) and Jr ROTC (reserve officer training corp) do sponsor shooting teams and events but generally because of the costs involved theyre nearly ALL "sporter" class...

shes hoping for some NCAA scholarships but her smallbore scores really need some work. that entails better coaching i think. whats HORRIBLE about sport scholarships is the NCAA limits how much schools can give. for example the NCAA "limit" on scholarships for Football or Basketball is 73 per year. meaning a 73 players can get a full-ride scholarship per year. for shooting sports, the limit is 3.6 per year. meaning only 3.6 shooters can get a full ride. if they bring on 5 shooters, someone is getting less (maybe a LOT less) than the others. oh and theyre held to a higher scholastic standard too. they need to maintain a team average of 3.5 gpa (or there abouts). the coach of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy really wants her to go there ($100,000 year education FREE plus monthly pay) but she needs to up her physical fitness game and of course commit to 5 years in the Coast Guard afterwards. shes not sure thats what she wants yet but shes going into her last year of high school so she needs to make a decision...

July 1942 era M1 Rifle (all correct drawing numbers except the barrel which is 1946, and stock which originals are worth what the entire rifle is)
early solid bail M1 Helmet (missing the proper paratrooper liner) marked for 2 battalion, 327th Glider Infantry Regiment (101st Airborne Division)
mid-war M1 Bayonet
mid-war Paratrooper boots by H&H

dont look too closely at the 50 star flag; i couldnt find my 48. must be in storage...
dont look too closely at the repro early ID tags (no notch), but on an original PX purchase chain...

Actually you can use all the independent accessory manufacturers with Walther, FWB, Styer and any of the other rifle manufacturers. The only differences in most of rifles were the widths of the foresight rails, and IIRC it's only FWB that have rifles of relatively modern manufacture, i.e. in the last 20-30 years who don't have the current standard width. Rosie started with a club FWB for a short while before moving on to a club LG 300. One of the other shooters at the air gun club we shot with was a former factory supported international shooter in the 70's, and her husband used to coach Rosie. It was thanks to their connections at the Walther factory that we were able to get Rosie her LG 400 for a very good price. Although it was a standard base model Alutec it arrived through the Supported Shooter Program, bypassing the official importer and saving my mum around £800. Rosie's coach and his wife both shoot Walther in AR and 50m, and even have Walther stocks and triggers on their Keppler actioned 6mm BR 300m rifles, so I have seen and handled, if not shot the Walther options. If I were buying new now I think I would give the nod to the Walther over the Anschutz. That is despite having shot Anschutz match rifles since I was 14, which I just realised is 40 years this year. I actually shot Rosie's rifle with one of my Anschutz rear sights on it.

I was lucky enough to see Nico shoot at the 2013 British Championships, he was a postgrad over here at the time. The meeting comprises three matches, and his total score for the weekend was 1799! Watching him was a bit like watching a machine. I heard a story that one of the NSRA postal comp scorers didn't recognise the name, and thought that someone coming along and suddenly shooting 100's pretty much without fail must be cheating. If true I would have loved to see the look on the scorers face when it was explained to him who the shooter was.

Oh and that was the match where he dropped the point.

A very fitting memorial. I was on parade a couple of years ago in Norwich on Remembrance Sunday, and as I'm in a wheelchair user I was with the only other chair bound veteran. He was a former signaller, but attached to the Parachute Regiment, and was a D-Day vet. I felt very honoured to be parading next to such a man.

Have some range time coming this Sunday so I grabbed up some of these PIG Full Dexterity Tactical Alpha gloves. They feel great.

I like my PIG gloves also, riffster ! :-)

Haven't posted anything in a while. Recently, I picked-up this Sig Sauer 220 Elite ASE. I love the old style Sigs...... metal and wood !
