Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Edit: The shot with the arrow-looks like it just barely clipped the 9 ring.

Let’s see if I can figure out sending mine in over the phone. The better one is from resting gun on backpack shooting from bench, and the other is from prone without resting on anything. Flyer aside, the prone shooting was actually better than I expected, but the bench shooting one balanced that out by being more disappointing than expected.
