Navy Marksman I Am! (was?)
Ringo's M1A/M14 picture in Gun Porn prompted this posting. Although this isn't exactly competition, it was a graded performance level event I describe below:

Years ago (late 90s), in the Navy Reserve, I qual'd on an M14 (M1A is the civilian version I think), using what I was told was Vietnam era ammo. Although getting to shoot in the Reserves was a rarity in my case, this one time event sponsored by our CO (CDR Wegge, If I recall), that may have rekindled the spark getting me interested in shooting again. It would be several years later before I got my own. Our entire unit met up at an outdoor range (possibly a military only) up near Kenosha/Racine, where half the group would swap out and go downrange in a trench and lift the targets and mark them for hits. Very hot day I remember and was amazed at the bullets whizzing overhead. I scored high enough to get the Navy Marksmanship Ribbon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marksmanship_Ribbon). There are two higher levels: Sharpshooter and Expert Marksman. I was satisfied at what I got, considering I had never done it before at that distance, which if I recall was at 200 yards.
