OK, let's see if this flies. Here's the idea as it stands, we can change things up if we find the need:

Each month we will start a new thread for posting your scores. Post as many scores as you want each month in as many styles/disciplines as you want. No strict rules about how you shoot, but make it clear in each entry what you did so that people can compare like with like.

The overall objective is to encourage each other to do more practice, and hopefully see our results improve over time. Oh, and have a bucket load of fun, of course.

Ah nuts, my targets are 10% oversized. I'll have to print some more and try again. Oh well, I need the practice...

10m pistol, 60 shots, red dot. Score 534

OK, here's my second attempt, this time with the correct sized targets :)

Shot in groups of 6: 47, 53, 51, 56, 57, 54, 56, 54, 51, 55

Typical lousy first group. Always happens, unless I start with dry fire & sighting in, in which case my sighting in group is fantastic and the next group is crap. :roll: Best groups were targets 4, 5 & 7, then fatigue started setting in and the groups opened up a bit. Still, a new PB for me, so I'm happy :)

6yd pistol, my place isn't big enough for 10m :(, iron sights. 10 shots. Score for one 10 shot group: 54.

Yep, going to need a lot of practice...

Thanks for joining in! Practice is what this is all about :) I've been trying to work with open sights and I'm waaay down on where I was at with red dot. It's difficult and really tough on my eyes.

Anyone else shooting 6yd? Come join the fun!

I will tomorrow! Going to use my old Webley Hurricane with open peep sights. All three of my 2240's are in various stages of completion. That and they are just too noisy inside! I could always do 6yd inside with my Beeman rifle and 4x scope? Hehe!

What is the time limit for a string of five?

I have a hurricane too, had it nearly 30 years now, and still can't shoot it straight. Puts a smile on my face though.

String of five?

String of five...ie. Five shots in 30 seconds.

Ah, just looked it up. Oh Lord, 8, 6 or 4 seconds. I can't even imagine!

Yeah I did that when I was 16 with a Walther OSP. I was Montana Junior Olympian in 1976. I still have the OSP but now its considered an antique!
I hustled this morning and finished the trim on the ManCave. Then put together the first 2240. I shot with the BNM breech with the 2240 w/14" shrouded barrel. Peep sights front and rear w/lagent :D grips!

I used B40's cause those are official 10m air target and I have a case of them!
60 shots, 105 minutes to complete.
6 shots X 10
Possible score of 600.
58,58,59,59,60(3X),60(2X),59 =583

Pretty good. I had three practice target to get zeroed in on the bench and sandbags.

Good Lord! That's not pretty good, that's insanely awesome. Way to go :)

Oh my, it's even better, I make that 593. :shock:

Since the month is almost out...

Managed to get some shooting in!

6yds, 10 shots, 55. One better than last week. Ha.

So is the 6yd target size at 6yds the equivalent of a 10m sized target at 10m. I see that you guys shoot 10 groups of 6, I may just do that. This 46M gets pretty heavy..

I'm not sure how the size of the 6yd target compares, I'll have to see if I can find out.

I know what you mean about the weight of the pistol, and a 60 shot session is a bit of a marathon. 40 shot is quite a good compromise both from a time and stamina point of view. I'd been hoping to do an open sights entry, but I really have trouble with my eyes holding focus for any length of time.

I kept track of my personal best for groups of 5, 6 and 10 shots for a while, but in the end it got a bit frustrating. I'd get a reasonably good group one day and then not be able to match it for weeks. At least with a longer sequence things tend to average out a bit more, and you get a better sense of where you are.

Keep having fun!

I'm shooting the Richmond Rod & Gun Club's spring match this coming weekend so tapering somewhat from my usual routine. Just did 60 shots after lunch to touch up my focus a bit, and will head out to the club tonight and shoot another 60. Then probably won't pick up a pistol until Friday evening at sign-in. A bit shaky today due to my habit of nervous over-training... the odd shot was jumping out pretty far from the 10 today as my hand shook after 6 or 7 seconds' battle trying to settle in. Couple of days of rest ought to iron that out. Anyway, here's my last target today, a 93 for 10 shots at 10 metres with a lightened (1050 gram) Baikal 46m.

Still debating whether to use that or the Pardini K10, weighted to 1060 grams. The grip styles are somewhat different and today I felt more comfortable with the Baikal. Anyway, really hoping to advance to 'master' level after this match... It's 180 shots plus warm-ups and I tend to be very, very slow to warm up, so probably closer to 250 shots for the weekend. Figure I'll be sore on Monday.
