Shot a 100 on a rapid fire for the Postals
 
I shoot in a postal league and got my first 100, I have many 95's 97's etc.
First time got a 100 / 2X.
I shoot a MK II Gov Target Model Blue w 6-7/8 barrel with a red dot.
I now it did not happen with out pictures, I am working on that.

Nice shooting! Who said us Navy guys couldn't shoot....

Thank You, Slow fire is my problem, I have to much time to think about it. I have had moments where I could not hit the floor.

Good shooting! Now that you have done it once, you'll start working on the X count!
A trick I learned during my quest for the Distinguished Pistol badge was to do a mental "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh" once I had aligned my pistol on target. It prevented me from doing any thinking about the last shot, sight alignment, what the other guys were doing, wobble area, etc. After so many years of shooting, my brain could tell my body what to do unless I interrupted it with extraneous stuff like just listed. That often prevents a shooter from letting their training and practice pay off?
Same thing with dry fire. Without the distractions of live fire, or match pressure, you are able to focus on technique. Why not give it a try and see if it works for you? If you have to hold the pistol on target during slow fire for more than 5-7 secs, you are going to wander and try to force the shot. That generally leads to lower scores. You've got :10 minutes for 10 shots. Don't rush them. OTOH, don't procrastinate excessively and run out of time.
Have fun

Good shooting. 100's in rapid are hard to come by. It should be easier next time?

!5 seconds of Fame down the tube
 
Went back to the range with hopes of duplicating my 100 score or at least getting with-in a few points (mid to high 90's) If I had been aiming at the floor, I would have had a tough time hitting it never mind the paper. Best score for any target was a 94-2 over 4 sets.
better luck next time out.:confused:

The first 100 is the hardest ! now you have proven to yourself that you can do it ! the second 100 should soon follow.
A 290 score was always eluding me but when i did do a 290 it was a 295 after the first 290 + score they came quite regulary.
My personal best after 40+ years of BE shooting is 299 13x

99 slow fire? Fantastic shooting!

I have shot 100s in timed ad rapid fire over the years. My issue has been slow fire. If I shot low 90s I was happy but on Monday I came within a eye lash of my first 100 in slow but my mind was fixed on my score in slow and my timed and rapid suffered and my final scores were 99 - 95- 94. I'll keep it. But it could have been better.

I have found when shooting the national match course for some shooters it sometimes pays to not look at your previously fired targets, it gets you a little excited at times !
Until you shoot a score of 300- 20x you have not done every thing perfect ! THE BEST OF LUCK DOING THAT !

I wonder if its ever been done ?

NRA 50' gallery course for .22LR record is 300-15X.
L Carter of Portland Maine 1994
Outdoor National match course with 50 yards slow fire is 300-24X held by 3 different guys.

how to find out where matches are?
 
I really want to get started in rimfire matches, but dont know where to start. I dont even know how to find out where the first match in my area might be. I dont mind driving 100 miles. Is there a guide or schedule from any of the organizations? NRA or others? I live in West TN 1.5 hour NE of Memphis. Thanks.

The bullseye shooting forum would be a good place to ask for info and get a lot of great info. Also see if the shooting ranges and gun clubs in your area have websites that may have info about matches.

I shot this target a few days ago. I believe this is my 3rd 100 rf in two years of shooting.
