November 2007 Turkey Shoot!
OK, if nobody else is going to do a November contest, here's something just for fun....
Go here and print the picture of the turkey:
It should print out full size on an 8/5x11 page. There are 12 tail feathers. The challenge: put one shot inside each feather (total 12 shots). Try to get the whole bullet hole inside the lines, that is, don't break the outside line of the feather; and try to keep the bullet hole from touching any other part of the turkey. Shoot feathers only - not body, not feet, not head, not the hat. (See? Unlike normal bullseye targets, smaller calibers have an advantage here.)
On your honor:
- Centerfire pistol.*
- Five (5) yards
- Standing, no artificial rest
Post your pics.
* Got young kids? They can do this with rimfire rifle.
Dang! That was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I started low right, and worked around counter-clockwise. Missed the first one completely; yanked it low. The next two clipped the line, so they don't count. Then I was good until I got to the hat. Not supposed to hit the hat! Those last two feathers are awfully small. Just barely got them inside the lines. So, total score 8 for 12. Anybody else want to "give it a shot"?
My imageshack-fu is lame. Click on the picture to enlarge.
And yes, I felt like a doofus at the range, with that stupid turkey out there on the target backer.
OK - so I don't have to color it first - but I do have to stay inside the lines.......
That's what one of the guys at the range said to me - "Looks like you should be using crayons instead of a pistol."

Nice job milquetoast!

Well, there was only one entry, so it looks like the winner of the 1000 rounds of CCI Blazer Brass .45 ACP FMJ is -- me!
So, that was a bust. Either nobody gives a rip, or people were embarrassed to put up such a goofy target at the range, or it was too hard and everybody who tried it was too embarrassed to post their scores.
Still, I'll give it another try for December, and see if anybody takes the challenge. Stand by....
