Some people just can't stand prosperity...in my case it's normally the reverse.

All right, I'll let myself get drawn in...

"The long story" may follow later, but basically a distraction occurred on my 9th shot (the 10).  Timing is everything!

Was that from the RO slapping your hand for being at 43* not 45 at the turn??

Would the "long story" be the tale of shot number 10???

At my club the rule is if you clean a target you buy a round at the bar for the entire group.
My friend shot a 99 so I accused him of being cheap.

Greetings,

I did not save the target; however, I shot a 95X9 Timed Fire at the Kitsap Rifle and Revolver club located in Bremerton, WA.

Oh yes, this was with the heavy recoiling 22lr.

Looking at targets on the wall in my shop, I have more than one "Dang-it".

Cheers,

Dave

Mike I hate to break it to you but that 9 sure looks like a 10. Do you have overlays or a plug?

Love my Dang-its...

For me it's either the first or the last shot. I know there's no excuse for a bad first shot and I am working on that.

Hmm, I don't know.  You tell me.....     No, I don't have overlays or a plug.  I guess I should buy them.
I thought it had to break through the line to count, not just touch it??




LenV wanted me to adjust the sights, so that's what I was doing.....

Bullseye rules say just touch it and with some ammo like jacketed 45 the hole looks considerably smaller than it actually is, which makes an overlay almost mandatory.

For practice when no one's looking, slide an empty case in the hole...

The first thing you need to work on is to get it out of your head that you always/often have a flier.  Your subconscious loves to work within your self-perception.

For first shot work, try one shot drills.  For last shot work, try adding the motions of a sixth shot.  Sometimes just the thought of having another shot left can move the last one into the group.

I actually was quite happy with this. Maybe in a couple more years of looking at it the 9 will creep a little closer.

(1) Why remind ourselves of things we don't want to do. Cover up the ones that are out and study the center shots.

(2) I've noticed that actually reading the rules significantly reduces the need for "thinking".

I was quite happy with those targets, errors aside, they were some of my best. There is always the element of luck; some shots in, some out.

With the sights a little bit down and to the right, it would no longer be a problem.      :-)

My way of thinking, that's an excellent target!
