      Hey Shipwreck,

      Well, the problem w/ the contests is that they take some work to put up - and we've even offered prizes for 2 months, yet the participation was abysmal. I think we did them from June 06 thru November 06. The participation level was pretty sad.

      I'll be gone February, so I'm out until March. Can you include my favorite variety of hand-held firearm in the near future?

      Maybe we would get more participants if we could figure out a way to not post the pics until the last week of the contest.

      Or we could post a rule that no one is allowed to post their results until after the 25th day of the month.

      When someone posts a perfect score of 50 the first week of the contest, it is kinda disheartening for those who haven't shot yet.

      Contest sounds good to me! But can we use a different target this time? Us people with all black target sites do not really like the usual target

      What else can we use for a target that U can print out on your own? And, w a way to keep score. Many people don't have color printers...

      Perhaps we can allow for the center to be colored by paint or with a small circular sticker for instance?

      Well, the think is that this is the way all the other sites generally run an internet match. It's gotta be in such a way that everyone can do it - and be fair to everyone. I don't really see another alternative. And, it's not really fair if ya gotta go buy something as opposed to the guy who doesn't buy it

      I guess if someone wants to come up with their own, it could be a non sanctioned one, but U are free to do your own - w/ the caveat that there isn't like 10 people running their own at the same time - that would get too confusing

      As JS will tell ya - I put a lot of work into running the contest, and coming up with the rules. We also even picked winners when we had a prize a couple of times. I was sad to see the participation level, and have kinda got burned out on the thing. Enough to where "I" don't even feel like entering anymore contests anymore...

      It would be nice if we could find a standard target like we usually use but white with black rings...

      How about doing one at bullseye distance? 25 yds or so. At that distance we could really get some diverse scores. More of a challenge than 7 yds or even 15. To make it interesting I'll only use one hand (like bullseye) off hand no rest. Anyone up to the challenge?

      Here is an inverted target, based on the original that has been used in the past competitions. It printed okay on my printer, but I'm not sure if it is exactly the same size. It is saved in .GIF format (I don't have the capability to produce .PDFs), but if someone else could convert it to a .PDF then we'd be good to go.

      Would you be willing to shoot with two fingers off the gun?

      Seriously, I like the idea of adding distance to get more diversity to the scores.

      I like that new target - I will have to start using that

      The only 25 yard range nearby is my outdoor one, and I usually only go there to shoot my PS90. My indoor range, which is a lot closer, only goes to 15. So, I'll have to pass this month. I don't plan to get to the outdoor range again until Mar 2 - I have that day off. Tex Independance Day :P
