Yes Chris, Hindsite is always good, icould hit both targets really should. With the m60 id get ya. (machine gun in the Rambo movie, the barrel was meant to move a bit so you'd splatter a target like a shotgun) My cousin shot himself after Vietnam :(

Right on Don, for answering my curiosity. I suppose you were lucky for not having been shipped over, since they didn't want you shooting the wrong people haha! They coulda made a mean weapon out of you under the right circumstances, but it was best that you missed out on that dirty war!

Hey Chris D, 1964 saw me called up for Vietnam but in later hindsight i was lucky to miss the slaughter house. I wanted to go big adventure hey! But seeing double canceled my travel plan.I could have hit both targets of the one fellow there, but I might have got the wrong one:) The brass figured.

Judging is always difficult, Don, so just follow your heart. The ones that touch you most will stand out in the end. Cool photo! Love, Carolyn

just mark each as read as you read it , if you like it mark it as good , once they are all in just go through the goods and pick the ones you think you'll place , mark them as best , each group you work with gets smaller so it gets easier, and remember , there is no hurry, you have no time limit how long it takes you to judge it, take as much time as you need, some of us work with a point system so we can get the judging done quite quickly as they are each allotted a score when we read them, but even those scores get revised sometimes after a couple more readings, just take all the time you need, don't rush yourself
