That's a very nice slow fire, hard to do much better than that. I will have to get to the range soon so I can post a score.

December .22 match

Post by Pete D. » Mon Dec 20, 2010 1:51 pm

Well.....remember the saying "Win it in slow fire, lose it in rapid?"
I sure didn't win in slow. I had the 10 ring scared, though.
December .22 match: slow 86, timed 94, Rapid 97 = 277.
High Standard Victor, Ultra Dot, Aquila rifle match.

Here is my score for the third week of December. I shot these earlier tonight in a league practice, my local league takes of for two weeks for the holidays, but a few guy show up and and have a practice match.


SF 88

TF 94-2X

RF 96-4X

NMC 278-6X

I'm shooting a Ruger MKIII, ultradot, CCI SV, 50' indoors. For me it fairly common to do best at rapid fire. I guess I'm wormed up by then, or it's that I've got some bad shots out of the way and I don't feel as much pressure to finish out the match with a good last target. I enjoy seeing any scores posted here on the postal league good of bad, so don't worry about your score, it's all for fun. Granted it is a little more fun to shoot good, but there are a number of shooters in my local league that put my scores to shame. It's best to not worry to much about a score and just have fun shooting.

Wow. I thought that it was one a month.

In the "postal' pistol match rules it says you may post one score per week, but I don't think you have to. It also says this is a .22 rimfire league, I don't have a problem with people using different calibers, but that is just what the rules say.

OK

Post by Pete D. » Wed Dec 22, 2010 8:05 am

Yep. I see that. There was no criticism intended about the weekly thing, more a confession of my misunderstanding of the contest.
The targets with the big holes....that's what we are shooting now in my Winter league....just thought I'd throw them up; I know that they don't apply to this contest. I doubt that I'll do it again in any case.
Unless.....unless we develop a .45 postal? A three gun postal?
You guys probably shoot even better with the big guns.

In the past folks have posted more than one score per month and the best score was the one counted for the monthly total. Since the original premise of these postal matches was to get folks out shooting more in organized shooting events, I have no problem with folks posting their scores from weekly bullseye events. At one time we talked about having two separate leagues but the overall consensus was there were not enough folks interested in creating a separate centerfire postal league. Please feel free to post your centerfire results on this thread but only the rimfire scores will count toward the monthly results.

As an aside, Pete, I see that your centerfire targets are shot in two five-shot strings for ease of scoring. I can understand that on the 50' slow fire targets as ten shots can tend to eat up the middle of that target making accurate scoring difficult. The trade-off is an extra relay stage per round in the gallery course for the second string of slow fire.

relay

Post by Pete D. » Wed Dec 22, 2010 3:46 pm

The trade-off is an extra relay stage per round in the gallery course for the second string of slow fire.
The way that we do it is to start the clock on a ten minute SF stage. Then, the R.O. observes the line. When all shooters have finished a string of five, he calls a cease fire, stops the clock, calls to retrieve the first string target, run out a second target. Once that is done, the clock is restarted and a "you may commence" command is given. The whole thing takes about 15 - 20 secs.
