Aug Match - Glock/XD/Sigma - 8-1-06 to 8-30-06
Glock/XD/Sigma ONLY Target Contest/Match 8-1-06 to 8-30-06
Ok. As per request, we are having ANOTHER match. Once again, you download the target at the link listed below, and print it out.
The target 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 8-30-06. DISTANCE IS 7 yards!
The gun used must be either a Glock, Springfield XD or a S&W Sigma – No other guns allowed in this month’s contest. No caliber lower than 9mm – As, that is the smallest caliber these guns are made in anyway (I know the Sigma had a 380, but that can’t be used in this contest - And, the Glock 380 isn't importable here). But, you can use any caliber larger if you wish!
The target is down-loadable here
1. Print the target out
2. Go to the range
3. Shoot the target - Shooting will be 5 rounds unsupported, standing, two handed at 7 yds with IRON/standard sights only.
4. When complete - Write your name, the date, your score, and the gun/caliber across the top of the target.
5. 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 a thread to post results in. 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.
NO: scopes of any kind
NO: shooting off any kind of rest
NO: red dot scopes
NO: shooting at closer distances.
Only ONE posted target per person in each class. AND, once you post your target, no posting a better one later. What you post initially is your 1 entry.
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.

Yes, I guess ya could. But, where's the sport on that
Seriosuly - I typically go one 1 time, and go thru 10-20 of those targets before I get my best one. But, it's not like I am doing that all month long to get the best.
But, I guess do it how ya want...
Well, I printed out 10 and I thought that was a lot already.
I was just thinking there might be an incentive to post up early. Like in the event of a tie, if I posted first then I'd win the tie.
Well, I have ended up using these targets just for regular range use - not just for the matches here - I have so many copied that I can just use these...
Is it ok to stick an orange dot in the middle of the big black circle on the provided target?
Now, how fair would that be to us w/o the orange dots
To be honest - I shoot at an indoor range that is fairly dark. And, I cannot see my shots that hit the black part of the paper until I bring it back to me to view - after my 5 rounds cycle is done.
I don't think that would be fair. I prefer shooting at the paper w/ orange instead of black. But this the only way people could print the targets out at home.
I posted mine up today. Not super fantastic - but a 45 out of 50. Not too bad
Damn good entry, propeller head
Thanks. I was gonna keep shooting more to get a 50 but it was taking forever for the targets to quit moving when I slid them to the 7 yard line. My friend in the next lane over was blowing large jagged holes in her target while I spent most of my time waiting on my targets to quit swinging.
At my local range, I've learned which aisle to get that has the least amount of wind. So, I know what it is like...
Remember... this is a good weekend to take a try at this contest
Glad to see some more results up...
Hberttmank is killing us
I guess we'll have 1 more next month, and then take a break - since no one new wants to enter....
