Pics from last monday's range trip. I typically spend each Monday or Wed evenings at my local outdoor range. I try to shoot at least 100 rds from my CCW. And usually a few more from whatever handgun / rifle I feel like dragging along with me. I usually take two guns in addition to my regular CCW (USPc .45).

Lately I've been spending a lot of time with a Winchester Model 70 22-250 I building loads for. I'm still trying to get my 100yrd groups down to a consistant .75" I'm getting close.....

I haven't submitted a contest target yet gunut. Like I said, I shoot 100+ rounds every week. I might stumble on something a little better..... I'm going to fool with a class 2 target monday or tuesday I think.

Next month, we'll break it into ounces, that way everyone gets some just for participating :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

On a side note, I see that is JW shoots that compact Kimber as well next month, we're gonna get creamed in the compact semi-auto match. Geeze....

That is if his barrel is under 3.59 inches long :)

I'll be posting the rules on July 1st. Will also include a revolver match.

What about the 'ole USPc, I just need to move that group up and right just a hair!!!! :-D :-D :-D :-D

I've got a Colt Mustang that I could shoot for the compact match too.......

I'm heading to the range this afternoon, we'll see what I come home with this time. If nobody else is there I'll work on my 15 yd target.

My range has 100yd, 50yd, 25yd, and 7yrd. With no buffers between. Soooo, if there are other people shooting I can't walk up in front of the firing line to work at 15yrds........

Yes, the USP compact will work for the contest - in fact, it's got about the longest barrel allowed in the match. I'll have to change the max length of the barrel to 3.8" as the longest allowed, since that's the length of the .45 USPc (the 9mm USPc barrel is a tiny bit shorter). Although, I will admit, that that's starting to touch 4 inches, and almost getting out of the compact size.

I haven't decided if I will use my compact USp or my compact P99.

No, the revolver will be open to any length.

Since the "compact" class needs to be "compact, I have to put some barrel length restriction. 4" or longer is not really considered compact, even though your commande could be considered a compact when copared to a 5" 1911. Confused yet? :-D :-D

This is plinking? I thought this was called target shooting. My definiton of plinking is shooting cans or steel targets. Not paper. :lol: :p
