Just got back from the range. I was going to do both 7yds and 15 yards with my Kel-Tec P11 and Taurus PT99-AFS, both 9mm. However, after doing one target per pistol at 7yds, I was beat! I can usually shoot 200-300 rounds no problem. But those mere 60 shots (plus 6 shots at a warmup target) for this Postal Match beat my but, lol.
Here is my warmup target, used my PT99 at 7yds. One shot per circle. Numbered in order of firing. BTW, I followed the same order on the match targets, except of course I did 5 per target for those.
The first two shots were a bit disheartening, lol. Fortunately, got better after that.
Now, for my 9mm Taurus PT99-AFS at 7 yards, first postal match attempt:
First thing I learned, is that my printer paper makes for terrible precision scoring, lol. Tore it all up. Next time I'll try to back it with cardboard instead of just free hanging from the clip. I hate scoring my own shots...but I'll give it a go.
Target 1: 20 points - oh so close to a 2nd 10 pointer on the ring, but not quite. Two non-scorers
Target 2: 25 points - a bit better, still not a good grouping really. One non-scorer
Target 3: 40 points (almost a 45 pointer) - MUCH better. Two shots at the bottom close to the ring. One is definately in the 10, not sure about the lowest one. Even in person hard to say. I'll call it a 5 pointer in the grand total to be safe.
Target 4: 35 points - slipped a bit, but not a bad grouping. I'm calling that one 10 pointer exactly 50/50, but let me know if ya think otherwise :)
Target 5: 45 points - Woot! *Almost* perfect. Always that one flyer though, lol.
Target 6: 35 points??? - Still a good grouping, just shifted to the left a bit. Hell of a mess to score though, lol. I'll give my self two 10 pointers and the other three I'll score as 5 pointers since it would be hard to prove otherwise.
Provisional Total Score: 200 points
Alright, next I shot my 9mm Kel-Tec P11 at 7 yards, first postal match attempt:
Target 1: 30 points - One non-scorer, just missed it
Target 2: 25 points - Och! Pulled one low big time!
Target 3: 30 points - well, at least each shot scored this time.
Target 4: 35 points - Ack! Pulled one low again
Last shot of course, heh.
Target 5: 40 points - Finally, a good grouping. Hard to score though
To be safe I'll call it three tenners and two fivers.
Target 6: 25 points - Trigger finger was really getting tired at this point. Slow carefull fire on a P11 takes a lot out of a finger, lol.
Provisional Total Score: 185 points
I was going to do the 15 yards match this trip as well, but I was too worn out.
I'll probably go back this weekend to the Shoot Straight in Brandon and do them then, and maybe give the 7 yards a re-try. Anyone want to join me??
