Since I didn't add anything after the first match, I'll hijack this to be the Spring League 2011 results post.
Never give up, even if you think you're ahead. I was sure I had first place Sharp Shooter in the bag. I was 8 points ahead of the guy in second. What I didn't figure was that he only had to shoot a 452 in match 4 to drop his low of 443, and pass me by one point. Which is what he did. Meanwhile, I had rifle problem* in match 4, and decided I could just call it a day, which would drop Match 4 as my low score.
In fairness to myself, I didn't realize I could have continued, and even if I had, I don't think I would have had time to shoot a full standing string.
*My buffer tube had backed out enough for the buffer retainer pin to come out and block up my action. It turns out you can shoot an AR without a buffer retainer pin, but you do have to get it out of your action.
