Nice shooting Clem! Well done!
Please edit your post and add a photo of your rifle so I can add you to the list.

Remember you only need 10 hits to qualify at 50 yards, that shouldn't be too bad. Running the card may be more difficult.

mschatterbox, love your photos!

I took a look at your target, very, very nice! You sure your name isn't Annie Oakley? That's a very nice card. I have to say, even if it isn't a 15. You were center punching those bulls! And a 9X scope? Well done!

Had to try this crazy target

Got all 15 on my first try; although I would have said that I missed on #12 but my scoring gauge is touching the dot, so I'll claim it.

My Supersport Heavy's are a couple of Marlin 7000's.

I didn't post the target because I disqualified myself because I shot it with my new CZ 452 American--ya know how it is when ya got a new gun, ya just want to shoot it.

This No Bull Target makes me really uncomfortable---not because I think I can't hit the dots, I can--but it makes me really nervous to shoot at anything I can't see. If my rifle weren't zeroed to shoot slightly high at 25 yards--there's no way I could have seen those last three dots because the crosshair would have made them disappear.

It's not a safety thing (at least not on the range) but one of my friends from high school was killed by a friend who took a shot at a Gobbler which he couldn't fully see. The Gobbler was close, but he didn't realize that his partner was between him and the Gobbler. And ever since then "Never shoot at anything you can't fully see." has been a rule that put great fear into me.

So, that's why this No Bull Target makes me nervous. I don't want to get used to shooting at anything that is partially obscured.

Oh, and the guy who designed this Target, well, he's messing with our heads...really a deceptive masterpiece. A guy who can hit all these at 50 Yards isn't aiming at the dots--he's using the circles to aim. You might classify this as "Trick Shooting". Pretty tricky to hit no matter how ya classify it

Glad you shot the target. Nothing dangerous about it, but I understand what your saying, and where your coming from.

That guy was a crafty wasn't he...

I'll clue you in on another thing, @50 yards the littlest ones aren't
the hardest targets to hit. You eluded to why in your post. Smart fellow!

Yeah, it's almost some kind of optical illusion; the big dots look easy but they are not because you can't see black crosshairs on a black dot. Gee, I just thought of a practical use for an illuminated reticle like on the Hawke scopes---these black dots!

Here's one of my Heavy's for real. Just shot it before this post. She shoots good. Marlin 7000, unmodified. She's perfect the way she is.
