I'm blaming the cat. She started wrestling with the mess of papers on the desk so I just cleaned it all off, taking the targets with it. Not to worry though, it was fun and worth doing again

How is that new shotgun doing? You just got a new one right?
Nope, that was Jet. I'm still using my trusty 870 Express. Got my eyes on an o/u though... one of these days

I thought I remembered you posting something in a home defense type thread about the 870. Maybe I got that combined with Jet's new shotgun thread and the outcome was that you just got a new 870.


I have an old Italian o/u that "one of these days" I will find the missing parts to. Best shouldering shotgun I've ever shot. Sadly it came apart in the dark one night and the pieces are possibly gone forever. Somewhere on a dirt road in Oregon my missing pieces are resting peacefully.

Alright Tony, I got the "peeper" geared up and ready to go for this challenge. I had a sling on another old Mossy semi-auto so I swapped it onto the 44US. Hopefully I'll be able to catch a glimpse of the target every time I sway back and forth past it.

I need to re-do the sling though because I think I have it on there wrong. It seems to work really well like this using a simple forearm wrap, but this sling is technically designed like the "M1907" sling and should be used strapped above the left bicep. I have some learning to do on how to properly use a sling.

I don't even own a sling......yet.....

And I took the mounting studs off both my rifles to accomodate the rest & bag.

Guess I'll have to go shopping for a sling now, was thinking of just getting a canvas sling, but I might have to spend the extra $$$ for a good military leather sling like your's Trent.

In our 3-P matches we're not allowed to use a sling for the standing off-hand stage, but we can use them in the kneeling / sitting stage, and the prone stage. I've just been shooting all three stages without one......

I think Tony might have some of us beat already. He shoots in these 3p matches and has a little practice in offhand shooting.

I'm going to give this a go today. (I definitely do not have my firearms in the trunk of my car which is parked in the company parking lot.)

Ha! Yeah, right Okay, but you better scramble... I'm not going to the range today but I *might* just get around to putting together that target frame I've been designing in my head and shoot this baby off the back deck.

Here is a target stand that I drew up and am thinking about building. It's all 1x2" steel tubing, with a hinge and clamp to allow it to be collapsed. It is also a tripod so that it doesn't wobble on uneven ground. (The ones I built that I am using now work fine, but sometimes they wobble.)

I very much envy people that can shoot on their own property. Something tells me Scottsdale PD might frown on me doing that.

Sorry about the huge photo size.

The key phrase there is...."a little practice"......

Came in last place my first match, but out of the 3 stages, I had the best off-hand score. The next match I improved....I came in next to last......
The last match I shot, I came in third place only a couple of points behind the guy in second.........

Looks like I should be able to sneak in some range time on Friday, since it's the 4th holiday the range will be open to the public. I'll be concentrating on the CZ, and the new peep sight, once I get the sight dialed in, I'll test it by bench shooting a few CAC targets to make sure the rifle, sights, and shooter can make small groups from the rest. Once that has been established I'll slide the table back, and try my luck with some rounds of off-hand.
Good, Bad, or Ugly, I'll post what I come up with....

The two best ammo's I have are either the Federal 714's, or the Aquila Golden Eagles, both are standard velocity target loads, and I want to dial the sight in for those rounds, and I'll try my off-hand shooting with which ever one seems to group the best.....

Mossberg 144LSB

Here is my first submission. Total average of 1.373".

Quick note to the varmint class... these things get heavy FAST! I was sweating heavily while hefting this thing!

Mossberg 142a

This rifle is the complete opposite of my 144LSB. This little gun is easily my lightest rifle. 18" barrel little carbine. I know I can do better with this one. I know it.

Mossberg 146b

This one is my "hunter" rifle. Tube magazine and 6x weaver scope. It's a medium weight rifle that is definitely in the "Sporter" Class.

I'm keeping my eye on this challenge. I will be giving it a go sometime this weekend for sure. I expected to do some shooting on leave, but ended up doing no shooting whatsoever, as sad as that is.

Be expecting a submission, whether it qualifies or not.

Not a submission

I am not submitting this one since my other attempt came in with a lower average.

Check out that .733 group #1!! I thought for sure I was going to kill it! Then it went to hell in a hand basket.
