Sorry, only if you go to the range on Thursday can we allow additional entries to be made. [smilie=madeyes.gif]

Go have a good time and good luck! We'll be on the lookout for your new targets.

Due to the lack of participation in this postal match, I'm going to extend it till Feb 1 11:59pm and see if that helps.
Isn't Feb 1st on Sunday? If so then entries need to be submitted no later than Sunday night? Or since mine is a resubmission I have to post mine 3 days earlier? [smilie=012.gif]

Don't piss me off, I'll ask for my money back! [smilie=icon_smile.gif]

Just messing with ya... you're good until Sunday night.

All refunds are subject to a 345% processing fee. You should see an invoice in the mail - payment of that invoice is due before your refund can be processed. Thank you for shooting with us.

HAL - Guess you missed that post. Now, go shoot some targets. _:

The seven day thing - yea, well... I guess I just can't count or have the mental capacity to properly read a calendar. :ham'r
Yes I did miss that post!! The range I shoot at is closed this weekend. I will have to catch the next match.

Here's my targets. I did much better than I did in the previous match (didn't even bother to post the targets), but there's still plenty of room for improvement. I think I started rushing my shots since I did this on my lunch break today.

These were shot with a Glock G-22 (40S&W) at 7 yards. I put a sheet of yellow-lined or light blue colored paper behind the targets during scan to see if the holes would show up better.

Lurk, that's a great way to spend your lunch break!

The wife and I were at the range again last night. She wasn't feeling so well, so she didn't get around to shooting the red target with her 45. However, I put some 22LR down range.

Gun: Buckmark UDX .22LR (no modifications)

Practice - 20 rounds at 7 yards.

Red Target. (Two rounds side-by-side)

Black Target.

I wanted to see if I could group the red target a little tighter. I squeezed off one round and thought it looked pretty close to center so I pull it back in to take a look-see. [smilie=icon_eek.gif]

Ok, I vote for requiring that Mrs. Onree has to start shooting her targets at 10 yards while the rest of us get to shoot at 7. [smilie=011.gif]

Be careful what you ask for. Now that she has that 220 Target Match she's gonna be able to make groups like that at 15 yards before long.

Her other 220 has a 3.9 inch barrel. This new one has a 5 inch barrel.

Maybe I should start a 3 yard match.

LOL

I have off days at the range, where I don't shoot very well at all. Luckily, Saturday wasn't one of those days for me! [smilie=003.gif]

When she says "off," she means by an inch, maybe and inch and a half. Those are the targets that get tossed in the trash. I've been tempted to dig em out and claim them as my own. [smilie=011.gif]

Off. Whatever.

Sorry I forgot to update this thread with the official winners. I guess I've been in shock over the Stillers winning the Super Bowl. GO STILLERS!

Winners:
22LR - SKSman and Onree both with scores of 100 (perfect score)
9mm - Onree with a score of 99
40 - LurkMastR with a score of 74
45 - Mrs Onree with a score 100 (perfect score)

I think Mrs. Onree needs to be handicapped to give us mere mortals a chance. What say we make her shoot one-handed. If that doesn't even things out enough we could make it be her left hand. /:f

I picked up a nice Beretta 9mm last week. I'll try it out for the next competition. I just can't seem to make my G22 do anything consistant. I tend to consistently shoot left and low with the G22. With my XD40sc I shoot straight for the most part but usually too low. Maybe I will do better with the Beretta.

I was thinking about setting up an off-hand competition. However, the Mrs is also very good at that too. [smilie=011.gif]

Me - not so much. I'll be lucky to be within 4 inches of the center.
