Reread my post its on top, I said that NTT is/has been a Army show. Precision Shooting vol.47 No.9 January 2000, pg 12. clearly has a picture of S/Sgt. Watson with her M14 as the Service Rifle Champ for the 1999 National Matches... If need be I can post the picture? I never mentioned that the M14 was harder too shoot due too its recoil, YOU DID I have said from the start that the M14 is not the Current As Issued Service Rifle and nothing more... I just brought up the fact that Watson was a women that shot it and took the Big Show, I won't mention Capt. Murdock or Catherin Bug the youngest girl too leg out at 15 with a M14 shooting issued M118NM ammo.. So my example being based on just 1 isn't the case now is it?
As a side note Christopher Stark, took the 1000yd Porter Match with a M14 and Jamie Mordarshi USN, Farr trophy.
