I was able to work with a 15 year old young man this week during WY-SHOT.
I am pretty sure the hook is set pretty deep.
I had him shooting my new H-S Precision 6XC specialty pistol.
He shot it out to 700+ yards and at the last stage connected with all but one target.
I am really proud of Logan.  His father shot the same SP and had a great time as well.
It was fun watching them both learn.  He ended up winning a pair of Vortex binos.
15" barrel/107 SMK's at 2725 fps.
I took it out past 1k on Monday myself-Fun, fun, fun!

Did HS precision install the brake. I am confident that I will have clearance to be back at Wy-Shot next year.
Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

Yes, You can get a H-S Precision pistol with this brake now.
There are some other changes about this SP that make it unique as well.
Each of those new things are now available on H-S pistols.

Here is the SP I shot the most at WY-SHOT.  I was spotting most of the time.

Logan told me on Sunday that he wants to compete again next year at WY-SHOT.
He has even talked to his dad about selling his motorcycle so he can build a custom XP-100Big GrinExcellent

I hope to be there next year as well with the 7WSM.  Great job getting the young man hooked!

If he's selling his motorcycle to build a pistol I'd say you have him Hook, Line and sinker! 👍

Those bolt action things are a bit odd but great shooting none-the-less!
Was sure I had a point when I started this post...
