    wasting ammo

    Thought I would post up some targets from today, I was planning on posting one of these for the contest but since I have no printer I could not print the target so I figured oh well.... i'm not much of a shot anyway!

    7 yards Springfield 9mm 1911

    Well, that's not bad

    Those targets are a bit larger than the ones to print, otherwise I would say to use those... Sorry dude

    Looks to me like you are getting them all in the killzone. That is all that matters.

    Yeah but at 7 yard I know alot of guys that would punch one big ragged hole. Yeah I can usually get most of them in the Kill zone but I am inconsistant, mostly because of not shooting much.

    What I should have said is I am not much of a target shooter put a rabbit or something similar running across a field and I will roll it, I just have yet to figure out how to get nice groups slow firing on a target.

    Hey, I'm not as good as I wanna be either. I shoot good enough to get the job done, but not nearly as good as I see some targets that are posted on various gun sites.

    Overall, I am satisfied w/ what I do w/ my SW99. I can't shoot that well with any of my other guns - I mean, I do shoot "decently," w/ the others, but am best w/ that 1 particular gun.

    Considering I have a left hand that shakes sometimes, and eyesight that isn't the greatest, I think I'm about as good as I can get..

    Consistentcy is my problem. I can bullseye 1 or 2 shots in a row, but then I start to spread out

    Hey thanks for the offer I just am really anti printer I have one in the closet that works I just refuse to pay more than I paid for the printer for Ink cartridges. And I have a space issue so I do most of my printing at work and let them pick up the tab. But really thanks for the offer it sounds like a good deal maybe someone else here can jump on it.

    I have a Canon i860 inkjet - I really like it because it prints text as fast as a laser printer, and it also has seperate color ink cartidges. So, I don't have to throw away 1 "color" cartridge (like the HP ones) when just 1 color inside runs out - I can replace ONLY the color I need.

    But, I hear ya
