COMPACT Semi-Auto Target Contest/Match 7-1-06 to 7-31-06

Ok. As per request, we are having ANOTHER match. Once again, you download the target at the link listed below, and print it out. Since some of you guys felt left out last time, we will do two different versions 1 for COMPACT semi auto and 1 for revolver. This is the COMPACT semi-auto thread.

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 7-31-06. DISTANCE IS 7 yards!

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

You MUST use a compact semi-auto (barrel is 3.8 inches or less - The HK Compact USP in .45 ACP is pretty much the largest gun that will fit in this category). A few examples are: Glock 26, P99 Compact, HK USP Compact, HK P2000, compact 1911, Keltec 9mm, etc. If you have a question about your gun fitting into this category, please ask!

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

Instructions:

1. Print the target out (MUST be on standard 8.5"x11" paper)
2. Go to the range
3. Decide if you will be in the semi-auto or revolver match (or both)
4. Shoot the target - Shooting will be 5 rounds unsupported, standing, two handed at 7 yds 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.

Well, I was gonna keep the barrel length around 3.5 inches, but I remembered U stating that U wanted to use the USPc 45 - so I checked the barrel length and upped it a tiny bit :p

I have two to choose from too - my USPc 9mm and my P99c

I never shoot as well w/ a compact, so I doubt I'll win. But, it's fun trying...

Ok, posted mine - had some time yesterday while the wife was busy w/ Piano lessons and other stuff. Never been suiper great w/ compact sized guns - but considering it's just a standard piece of paper (not a very big target), I guess that's not too bad. I got a 40.

It's irritating - went to the range w/ my compact USP - I keep shooting that gun low... So, for now, out of all 5 of my guns, I need to work on that one the most...

But, back to the match... Post up!

Time is ticking...

tic tic tic - With all the people here, surprised we don't have more entries...

Next month - the contest will be a Glock/XD/Sigma ONLY competition. I wanna do something a little different each month. Revolver guys had their chance this month. We've also done all semi-autos before, and compacts now.

It'll start Aug 1st.
