Dave,
Thanks for asking. Slings are ok, if it helps you shoot better offhand, use it.
Rules have been modified, see above.

Who said this was going to be hard ? ;)

Bob

ps-If you want to use my printer target, PM me and I will email the pdf file to you.

Please re-read match rules in post#1.
Changed to allow 2 entries per month, one for scoped gun, one for irons.
Shoot more, have fun with this !

What a great idea! I can't wait to try this! :AR15firin:bthumb:

Great, welcome guys !

Notice to All shooters in this match-
If you want to share your offhand progress scores, or maybe a personal-best target during the month, feel free to do so !
You can post targets or scores as often as you want during the month, but your monthly entry (or entries if you are shooting both scope & irons) will need to be identified by putting it in the ENTRY FORM format shown in Post#1.
Please reserve use of that Form for your actual match entry(s) for the month.
Thanks,
Bob

+1.
It's been a long while since I did any offhand shooting. Lately I've been thinking about practicing up and getting into smallbore silhouette. The timing is perfect! :bthumb:

Been a lotta years since I did any serious off hand but I knew this would be fun. So after the first of Oct. went out to the range with the family to get back in the groove. Boy was that comical:o. Using a Remmy 540X w/o a palmrest or any of the other shooting equipment I used back in the day. Boy I was just happy to keep it on the paper!!:p But we'll get there and have loads of fun doing it.

That has been my experience exactly ! My first couple weeks it was "just keep it on the paper... then it was keep it in the right target on the paper, then...

After 6 months of on/off practice, it is beginning to take shape. I am now pretty happy if i can keep 10 shots in the black on the A23. Still doesnt happen every time, but it is beginning to click. Getting to the point where i can usually "feel" the shot, good or bad. Controlling the trigger vs. sight picture is still the big mind game for me though. But having a blast trying !

I'll start....
 
...the ball rolling.
Here is a target I shot with two rifles. Yes, I said two rifles. I know that isn't in the rules (probably a bad way to start a new match), but let me explain. I shoot SB Silhouette and sometimes use two different rifles for the SB and Hunting rifle match. This target replicates that experience and by switching in mid-target, I simulate having to adjust to different weights, balance points, triggers, etc....
This isn't intended to be an "entry", just a target to post.

The top two and sighter were shot with a CZ-452 (custom stocked and rebarreled with a Light Varmint Lilja, and the bottom two were shot with my 1712 Anschutz.

Good job! Nice group on the top and bottom right bull... :bthumb:

Bob4BVM 10-09-2012 02:29 PM

Wow, that IS some nice shooting Cowboy !
Thanks for showing us what is possible.
If i can manage 5 consecutive tgts in the 80's i'll be happy.

Guys, don't let Cowboy scare you off ! ;) !

Remember this match is more about personal improvement than competition.
You win every time you shoot a new personal-best target.
Save your targets, it's fun to watch what happens over a month or two.

Shoot often, have fun !

dryfly24 10-09-2012 06:13 PM

Put in my order for 250 targets today. Watch out Cowboy, here I come! :D:p
