You have Philippines on your profile location, is that up-to-date now? Claim in Colorado should be interesting.

I used to belong to a rifle club here in Malvern Ohio. It is named Alliance Rifle Club. They have military pits with slide up and down targets. They have a 200 yard and a 600 yard range. I never seen them but I was told there are people there that could stand up and put 6 out of 10 shots off hand in the bulls eyes. They had a special coats they would wear . They were called I think Turtle coats. Somebody would strap them in and they could hardly move. I did see a guy wear one once . he did not as good as some claimed others do but it was interesting. They would hold Military torunements a lot of Boys from Camp perry would come here and shoot
Anyone ever hear of a Turtle coat ?

I’ve heard of special jackets used in military rifle competitions. They help eliminate any slight “shake” from pulse and breathing. Carlos Hathcock was know to use one.
