    I received a really sweet RIA M1903 from the CMP and would like to use it in the John C. Garand matches at our club, and possibly at Camp Perry in August. Just one little problem..................
    The Bolt Action! Does anyone have any good tips or techniques that would make getting 10 accurate shots off in 60 seconds from the prone position a little easier? I have run through this drill with dummy rounds and timer and found it pretty difficult. Maybe I'm doing things the hard way and there is a better way. Any feedback will be appreciated. TIA, Ben.

    I can only think of one good suggestion, PRACTICE! I shot one season with a bolt gun, and i'm a lefty! Talk about frustrating. The only thing that worked was to keep doing it over and over again until it was natural.
