**** FOR ALL OF THE PROCRASTINATORS OUT THERE, WE ARE EXTENDING THE CONTEST THROUGH DECEMBER 13TH**** :D


Guys & Gals ... While it's hard to believe, Summer is almost gone, Football has just begun, and we've got just enough time to squeeze in a contest before Thanksgiving.

Given that the last few contests have had minimal participation in the long gun divisions, this 7 Division event is just for Revolvers and Pistols (centerfire & rimfire) :). The contest rules and the 7 different division targets are listed below, so let's print them up and start punching that paper :). If you have any questions regarding the contest rules or targets, feel free to contact me via PM. Good Shooting To All!

Also, please note that in addition to the thrill of victory :D, each of the division winners will receive a special award icon that will be added to their signature :cool:.

Look at the bright side ... you now have 60 days to add one to your collection or better yet .... the opportunity to borrow one for the task at hand :)

Woo Hoo!! I'm in! Looks like fun - thanks Buck!
WF ... now that you and your eyes are a year older, do you really think you'll be able to still compete :D.

Glad to hear it :)

Beware jeepnut ...The targets are tougher than they appear (ask me how I know) ;).

I agree :(

I have mainly been focusing on long guns at ranges 300-600yd of late. In fact I just shot my first sniper match this past weekend where I scored a near perfect score at 600yd (9 X's out of 10, 100 out of 100pts).

Now I gotta break out the pistols again. Sadly out of practice.

Ok, I tried Division 1 today and lemme tell ya, it ain't easy. You think those circles are a piece of cake to hit, but just using two bullets to do it is a challenge!

JohnR ... As mentioned earlier, the targets are a bit tougher than they appear at first glance :)

I'd like to enter but think you need a "feeble senior's" catagory...our technique is a bit different....My favorite target shooting is to take a blank piece of white paper...put it at 10 feet...shoot a round and then draw the target bullseye around the bullet hole with a marker...High scores are my life...

I'll be waiting to hear or to be banned...whichever comes first.

Lets get some points on the board...
I think this might actually be 5X as the black ring around the bullet hole passes into the X but I'm not terribly worried about it. I'm sure someone will end up beating my score. That's what I get for bringing the flat points instead of the semi wad cutters. Lol

TD ... Thanks for getting the ball rolling (nice shooting) :). I suppose you're going to want bonus points for hitting the "E" in Date as well :D
