I spent most of the afternoon in the fabled land of the first floor. This let me see some of the major exhibitors I had not managed to check in on. There’s still a lot to go for tomorrow, but I am making good progress seeing what I’m interested in.
As mentioned in a previous post, I’ve got a pre-release Kestrel 2700 that I’ve been beta-testing. I have messed around with it enough that I think I can give some useful opinions now. I am going to assume that the known bugs are getting worked out before release.
I’ll put this out up front: I was skeptical about why anyone would buy the 2700, but after having used the product, I think I see where the value is.
I managed to break my streak of taking a class once a month last month; between a family vacation and Jewish holidays, I just could not find a good Sunday to do it. This concerns me a bit, because I think you should always be learning new things and improving, and training is a vital component of that. To make up for it, I’m doubling up in July.
I just finished my first July class, which was Peacemaker National Training Center’s “Intro to Long Range Presented by Zeiss” class. I’d love to share my experiences shooting out to a thousand yards for the first time!
