    Target Contest/Match 6-4-06 to 6-30-06

    Ok. As per request, we will be having a little match here. Basically, you download the target at the link listed below, and print it out.

    It is a PDF file which needs Adobe Acrobat Reader to open the file, but Adobe Acrobat can be downloaded for free (if you don't already have it).

    This match ends on 6-30-06. For now, it is for Semi-Autos only. Sorry U revolver guys. If this goes well and works out, we can do another one for revolvers.

    Two categories -

    Class 1 -- 7 Yards
    Class 2 -- 15 Yards


    No caliber lower than 9mm. So, 9mm, .45 ACP, .40 S&W, .357 Sig, 10mm, etc

    The target is down-loadable here
    http://www.reloadbench.com/pdf/files/LargeTarget.pdf

    Instructions:

    1. Print the target out
    2. Go to the range
    3. Decide if you will be in Class 1 or Class 2 (or both)
    4. Shoot the target - Shooting will be 5 rounds unsupported, standing, two handed at either 7 or 15yds with IRON/standard sights only.
    5. When complete - Write your name, the date, your score, and the gun/caliber across the top of the target.
    6. Take a photo (w/ digital camera) and post the photo on the site. Also, type out in the message the gun/caliber/score/etc.

    READ THIS PART CAREFULLY: In the Range Report Section, there will be 2 threads - One for Class 1 and one for Class 2. ONLY post results on those threads. Any questions, comments, etc. MUST be posted on this thread. Anything besides results posted on those two threads will be deleted.

    The results threads will be stickied, along with this thread.

    Additional rules:

    NO: scopes of any kind
    NO: shooting off any kind of rest
    NO: lasers
    NO: red dot scopes
    NO: shooting at closer distances.

    Only ONE posted target per person in each class


    And finally - it MUST be printed on a standard sized 8.5x11 piece of paper

    SCORING EDIT: If the bullet hole cuts the ring of the next higher point value, it counts.

    One more thing: I apologize for the guys who have no way to take pics or scan their targets for results.

    There is no other way to do this. Unless someone is willing to accept targets via mail and help out by scanning/photographing, this is the only way we can do it. So, I realize some people will be left out
    .

    PLEASE BE HONEST. I can promise you that I will not win (especially at 15 yards). But, I will be honest and post my results.

    Please do not cheat.


    By cheating, you only cheat yourself. Never understood the people who cheat at games. Remember, the only person you need to be honest with in life is yourself. If you cheat, you're lying to the one guy that matters - YOU :-D

    Do U mind if I delete that thread, so we don't confuse everyone.

    I think yours was fine, but I looked at some similiar ones that I have seen on other sites, and I placed the restrictions up clearly so we don't get 100 questions, like "Is it ok if I do...."

    Yeah go for it! Do you think it would be ok if we allowed all calibers though. And six shooters? I dont really want to exclude any handgunner. Does this sound ok? If not then it doesn't really matter. Happy to participate!

    I thought that since this is the 1st one, we should keep it kinda simple. And, honestly, I think it isn't that fair to have the semi-autos and the revolvers compete in the same contest. The revolvers will have a slight edge, IMHO.

    That's why I thought we'd see how this goes, and if there are any headaches and/or things that we haven't thought of.

    If it goes smoothly, then we can do another one next month.

    I don't have a revolver, but we can have a revolver match too, or maybe open it up to both in the future.

    If all goes well, we'll come up with other idea.s

    This may be a disaster w/ problems (members who have no camera, aren't computer savy to use acrobat, etc). So, I wanna keep it simple for the 1st one. If there are problems and I give up after this one, then someone else can take over and come up w/ their own rules.

    Ok, I was just wondering. We included them in the contest at GT and the Wheels did same and even worse then auto so I decided to ask. And some only have .22's and use them for defense and I didn't wanny leave them out.

    But I am just causing problems now! lol Cheers! :P

    Well, some of those target 22s wouldn't be fair compared to the larger calibers, I though. I've seen guys clean up w/ the 22, but have issues w/ the larger size bullets due to recoil.

    We'll come up w/ different contests and cross platforum contests if this goes well

    Hopefully between my posts and yours throught this thread, all questions will be answered.

    I was planning on going this Sat, so I will try then (unless the wife puts the breaks on me going )

    Anyway, the contest runs thru the end of JUne to give everyone time.

    Shipwreck,


    Are you limited by the type of weapon you can use....
    Like my HK MK23 with a CCF Flash Suppressor?

    The gun is fine, but I don't think using the supressor would be fair.

    I knew there would be questions about things no matter how well I tried to write the rules :-D

    I would like to use mine to see how it goes. It is coming in the mail sometime next week.

    My thoughts for this contest slightly differ from shipwreck’s. I think that I am more focused on the joy of just shooting and sharing targets and he is more about it being a contest. Which is ok, but I don’t really like excluding people. I am not trying to bash, it is just my opinion. Maybe the contest shouldn't be heald in the "sound off room" lol
    :P

    This is why I think the rules should be looser to lessen problems.

    Just my thought. No hard feelings!

    Well, it is a light hearted contest - but, as a match/contest, it's gotta be somewhat fair. For someone who has 5 shots in the 10 circle and used a laser or red dot scope or a 22 isn't exactly fair compared to someone who might have a .40 Glock or something.

    And, someone will always be excluded. 1 person wanted to use an airgun. If we are going to let anything goes, then what's the point? People are already free to post a pic of any of their targets when they go to the range.

    U can use a comped gun if you want, but I think it should be the gun - no attachments that would give 1 person an advantage.

    Like I said, this is the very first one. I think the rules are legitimate. We may have a revolver and semi-auto one in the future, and maybe a 22 one.

    But, if we have a lot of people participating, it's easier to do 1 type of thing at a time. We can do something else in JUly, and something else in Aug. We'll see. I've mentioned that above. As for the thread's location, I'll talk to JS about moving the threads to the Semi-Auto section for now.

    Jeeze, lets just have some fun, follow the rules as they are, who ever comes out on top they get the 'ata-boy' from the rest of us & we go on.

    Like Ship said 'someone' will always be excluded. I'm good to go this time around, next contest may be with somthing I don't have. So be it. Its all in good fun.

    That being said, can I use this:




    JUST KIDDING!!!! :-D :-D :-D
