Clean a Target... Show us!

Post by DavidR on 4/8/2015, 12:13 pm

First topic message reminder :

Just thought we could all use some Positive Reinforcement so I made this a "sticky" which means its always at the top in this topic. So when you shoot a clean target and want to hoot a little post it here for all to see!  cheers


Here is what I did last night at our weekly indoor league, 50 ft on the NRA reduced target, shot Timed fire style in four strings of 5 shots, we hang two targets at a time. 100 6x and a 100 7x this was a first for me to clean two in the same set of targets. Ended with a 493 26x out of possible 500.

Nice shooting Chris.  A 100 at 50 yards is no common feat, but I think this is your second in a relatively short period of time.

Talk about motivation.  The targets are fantastic, but how about some details?  Maybe gun, load, etc.
Not that the guy holding has anything to do with it.  Smile

These two are my favorite keepers to instill a positive frame of mind.
The first one was scored by Steve Reiter at the Canton Regionals with Jim Henderson adjacent.  They were so loose and joked around the entire match.  I got a couple of souvenir 9mm rounds from Jim, one of which he autographed his initials.  This was shot from a borrowed H208s which was not adjusted to my hand and trigger finger and it didn't feel right the whole time. (The month was actually July and not June)

The second one was during practice just before the range was closing.  Cleaned with the .22 and with no more time to change the target, cleaned a tighter group with the .45.  This target is mounted on my gun box because it has special meaning for this novice when I had just started to shoot NRA approved matches for the first year.  At that time I didn't know about different powders, loads, springs, and all the fine details discussed in the Bullseye-List and Forum.

I want to thank Larry McCorkle and Dave Salyer for making me feel welcome to my first match at Charlotte Rifle and Pistol.  It is a beautiful facility and it was a pleasure to shoot there.
 
The day was sunny and the temperature was in the mid 30s when the match started, but during the course of the day, it rose to a comfortable high 40s.  Because of an elbow injury I had to stop shooting three gun (till injury is healed) and have been shooting .22 Only for most of the season.  Therefore, the 'CF' score you see in the photo was shot with a .22.  (p.s. yeah, I know, I need to work on SF.)

Shot a dot for the first time today. Have been dedicated irons shooter, and i am trying to get back into the groove after a hiatus for school. My hold is 9-ring right now, but i just did what the big dogs reccomend, accepted the massive dot wobble and worked on grip, stance and smooth trigger movement.
Here is my first rapid with a dot, feels like cheating! Marvel built by Jon.

I resolved not to use a dot in competition until I made master... but darn it is tempting. I only dropped a few points after 5 strings of sustained fire. The dot is shockingly easy to use, solves all my vision Problems focusing on the front sight, swimmers in my eye, blurriness.

I printed some B-8 targets, with only the 10-ring colored black.  

With the help of people here and on the S&W forum, I kept getting closer with bigger guns, then decided to see if that would help with my Model 41.  First time that all ten holes went in the 10-ring.  

I'm still following Dave Salyer's advice about "area shooting", and the only area that counted for me was the black.  I got two others with a score of 99, but they're not as pretty to me as this one!

Practice on turning targets. In three weeks we have regionals here in TN. Shot a 900 CF/45 agg and this was one of my timed fire targets.

Well, let's see how the state match goes in 2 weeks, and I still need to get the 45 in line.

I'll try to do better next time.
Well John,

I just shot my first match for this year, in Vermont on the last Sunday in April.  It was 40 degrees and light rain all day with a constant sprinkle coming in on our gear.  The lower light was actually pretty good for shooting - not like that glaring brightness you have to put up with.  Federal Match 185gr, Curtis Custom .45 :

Outdoor match this weekend.
SK Std+ and Zero 185gr JHP













And a bonus!




97/3 Slow fire 50 yards. Those are 45ACP 185 JHP bullets. The holes are smaller than their scoring size.
