    Yep... you want it to form more of a semi circle than a straight line. Nice hat, more importantly an excellent day. Congrats, the laundry will be there tomorrow.

    Just roll it and let it stay in a coffee cup for a couple days. (For example check "Gibbs" on NCIS.)

    OK I have a question.... I read the Women on Target on the NRA site but I'm not sure I understand how to go about getting started... What's the basic run down if you don't mind?

    Careful guys. My aunt told my mom when she first got married to burn the first shirt she ironed so dad would never ask again.

    As I understand it, it's pretty easy, really. I have the booklet, but I think they probably list the requirements on their website. You have the successive "ranks" for marksmanship. If you're female, you have the option of doing it as part of the NRA's "women on target" program.

    You start with basic practical. (class)
    Then pro-marksman and marksman, which can be done with paper plates (9" diameter)
    Then you will need the NRA's D-1 or D-2 targets to complete the rest of the ranks.

    All except "Distinguished Expert" are done on the honor system. Go to the range, follow the requirement guidelines, tally up your score, and if you pass, you can get the certificate and pin/patch from the NRA online.

    To qualify as DE, you MUST have a current NRA member or an NRA instructor (with current ID number) witness your qualification. Then you send it in, and you get your certificate, etc, as an NRA Distinguished Expert. If you're a woman, again, you get to do it as part of the WOT program, and I think you get a photo published.

    I have all the stuff written down in a notebook in my range bag. If you want, PM me and I can give you all the specifics.

    I wear a hat every now and then, but usually not.

    Anyway, to get rid of the flat brim I do the following:

    Wet Brim with water
    Place a can of Copenhagen inside brim
    Keep can in place with rubberband
    Set in sun to dry

    Viola! You now have a rolled brim.

    Can of Copenhagen is a bit tight for my personal taste it interferes with safety glasses etc... I've got one of these Perfect Curve Cap Care Kit

    So I took Bunny Jr. to the range today for our weekly trip (and also because the laundry is piling up and I am avoiding it) this morning. I just joined the NRA about a month ago, and I've been doing their "Women On Target" program. I passed Pro-Marksman and Marksman earlier this month, but I finally got my hands on some D-2 targets last week, so today I went out for the Marksman 1st Class. Nailed it! Of course, it's still pretty easy, it's not that I'm a fantastic shot or anything, but I still felt really good about it.

    When I got home, the mail lady was just leaving. I ran upstairs to open up this little unexpected package with my name on it, and guess what? The NRA sent me this cool cap! (Yes, they want another donation, don't harsh my buzz though, please.) Woohoo!!!!

    Just thought I'd share.

    Bunny Jr. likes it a LOT. I have a weird feeling if it turns up missing, it will be in HIS closet, for some reason. Hmmm...




    Oh yeah, and while at the range, I got to try out a Remington 308. Got to "sniper" some Zombie Targets. Too much fun!
    Bunny,

    If you meet any anti's while wearing that just
    say it stands for (Not Really Armed)

    j/k nice hat

    Similar here. Just roll the brim after getting it slightly damp and stick it in a large class or mug and leave it over night. All done! Never leave it in the sun though. That will fade the colors.
