Exclamation New member from Thermal Ca

Hi shooters! Fairly new to this site and I enjoy the shooting sports especially the competitions here.
Iím retired from the tire business and served in the Marines from 6/75-6/79 as a helicopter crew chief. 6113
We had the M16A1 at that time so until recently I have had little experience with the M1A match rifle.
I posted some targets from yesterday so they should be up shortly.
Thanks to Jeff for the invite!

Welcome fellow airwinger.
F4s were my choice of weapon back then in the 60s.

Welcome aboard. Brings back a lot of memories from back in the day. I flew Free Flight Model Airplanes with Sal Talbi, Jim Adams in Thermal in early 1960's. I remember being in down town Thermal and guys were shooting shotguns at either pigeons or doves.

PFC THOMAS!


I grew up in that area and remember the old timers talking about the 'city' pigeon shoots in Indio where the city supplied the shotshells!
Kholors (sp) feed store on Fargo street?






Times have changed for sure! For the better?
