Show your targets. Any targets - For instance, First target, or one that shows progress, etc.

Post by Guest on 10/16/2017, 6:56 pm

First topic message reminder :

I finally made it to the range. I loaded up with my portable oxygen bottle and rolled my range box on my walker. You can see my yellow clip-on shooting glasses with the jury-rigged eyeshade over my left eye like the big boys at the Olympics. My range box is a work in progress.

I had to stop a few times to sit on my walker and rest. The hallway at Shooter's World must be fifty yards long. I shot on the fifty-yard range, so they must have the rest of the hundred-yard range somewhere. This was the second time in four years that I drove myself on the road. Got to be a sign of progress.

These were seven-inch targets at seven yards, (twenty-one feet.) The targets are named to be sorted in the computer's folder. The date, caliber, target number, distance, number of rounds, and grip used make up the title. The first target received twenty rounds for sighting in the new Sightmark Wolverine red dot. The rest of the targets received ten rounds each and match my performance with my pellet pistol at home. I fired fifty rounds. I plan to obtain some official targets. There is a lot of fun work to be done.

That's great shooting Jack H.!  I've got some targets to show later.  On my first target ever was a hardball score of 6 points.

My first time holding a gun and the first time I shot was a hardball gun with military issued 230 gr jacketed ball ammo. 
After a brief introduction to shooting by the Navy Chief range master, we proceeded with 10 rounds on 3 targets. 

!st target:  I didn't see too many shots on the white so I assumed they were all in the black.  Wrong!  6 points total. Shocked Shocked
Note the sight picture the instructor drew on my target afterwards.  "This is what you need to do doc!"

2nd target:  Big improvement scoring  20 points

3rd target:  I thought I was getting the hang of this, scoring 30 points.  Recoil was not that bad after all.

I kept these targets as a souvenirs just in case I never shoot again.  But being an eye doctor and an officer I was treated like royalty and was given access to the range with all the ammo I needed.  Probably shot 100 rounds of ball during my lunch hour, 5 times a week for about 5-6 months.

4th target:  2 months later, shooting in the high 90's during matches for the RTC (recruit training center) pistol team.

5th target:  I think this was one of my last targets before being discharged from the Navy in 1977.  Did not shoot at all until 2003.  I recently measured the recoil spring weight from the pistol I'd used in the Navy.  It was surprisingly only 12 pounds.  We shot with what we had and no questions asked.

Did not shoot a ball gun until 2004 Camp Perry when I placed in the President's 100 Match.  Pistol arrived a week before flying to Ohio.  Sighted the pistol in during the small arms firing class.

I wanted to test a different mounting style on the 52 and all I had to plop on it real quick was a cheepo Millett 30mm. Sort of makes me re-think the cheepo part. The 52 started throwing shots off call on the last match (had to switch guns) and I didn't know if it was the base or the Holosun. I think this eliminated the base as the problem. To be fair I will mount the Holosun on a different pistol sometime and see if it holds zero.

Wow! Excellent shooting Len.  If I may ask, can you share the details for the mount for your M52 scope?  Also, those grips are nice!  I have a boxed 52 from the 1990's but shoot .45 for centerfire (with iron sights and powder puff loads).  I really like the configuration you show.

Always willing to share with someone that throws a compliment my way. Smile The base is from BME and they have three cross slot. The ring is half of a very strong set with 6 allen screws ( Burris XTR). The grips are Nills. I just threw it together that morning to test the BME base but will keep it like that for awhile. Pistol ran perfectly with that weight on the slide.

Thanks!  I've been considering selling my near mint M52.  But, after looking at your setup I probably won't - that's pretty neat.  I noticed the WST powder.  When I was reloading 148gr HBWC 38's I used red dot, but it seems many use WST.  I'll have to try some.  What I appreciated about loading the HBWC 38's was the AOL was based on brass length, which made reloading easy.  Although, 38 special brass isn't as common as it once was. 

My apologies to the thread for this distraction.

BME also makes one that goes all the way over the ejection port.. I have one on my wife's 52 with a 1" UD.  Works very well.

Here's a target you don't see every day. The long skidder was an early first shot on the first Rapid fire string of the NMC and the 8 at six-o-clock was the last shot of the second string. So, I got the turn coming and going. Smile I shot this target at a match this past weekend. I have seen pictures of similar shots but this was the first time for me...

Well....you paid for all the rings.  If your timing was a little better you could have lost those two low shots.

Pellet gun practice

Post by IT1 Wes on 12/23/2017, 5:45 pm

Ten rounds each. Ten feet away, but only a seven-inch target. The Benjamin weighs three pounds, has a seven-pound trigger weight, and has an inch of trigger creep. It's like training with weights.

Shot this at our monthly NRA Indoor 1800 with a SA Range Officer.  The only mods to the pistol were to install a mount on the slide for an ultradot, lightening the trigger pull to 3 3/4 pounds and cutting two coils from the mainspring.  I had to keep track of the shots so we could score it.  I put a second target underneath just to make sure the bottom rounds cut the ten ring except for the one nine.

Hey All!

I wanted to post this target. Saw some real progress last night at my weekly 22 600 match, haven't shot a match for 2 weeks, been shooting a lot of 45 lately trying to get the hang of it (and my 22 is off for work...). My prior best was a 470.

Anyway, I ended up shooting 2 matches, the first with a friend's Pardini, and the second with his AW93. Scored a 496 and a 539 (!) Respectively. First time that I felt nerves didn't play a factor. I'm hoping it was more the shooter than the gun! I've got a long ways to go, but it was nice to see progress...

Here's my slow fire 2 from the second match...

Nice target.  Looks like it's time to start making plans to acquire an AW93 with a nice set of Rink grips! Wink

Funny you say that... despite shooting the AW93 better, I much preferred the feel, weight, and trigger on the Pardini.
