since they are being too modest or just shy, I will post it :D

On March 4th, during the Minnesota state air gun championships, John Richards shot the first ever 40x40 in USIS. a check of the records shows the previous record was 39x40!

Congrats!

Outstanding John! That should be the first ever iron sighted 40 shot in IHMSA too!

Thanks guys, your acknowledgements mean more than the score.
Just a quick recap, shooting without a spotter getting ready to take last shot after running 39 targets. I hear someone's spotter say 35 seconds left, I brought my gun up and said to myself "now don't _uck this one up"
I had three 39's in past , always missing something on the front half before, that really makes you think...
Thanks again for your kind words, hope to see you at the range this summer. JR
