Super job on the C III iron sight target, Lee.....

That is a tough one. I remember it from the 25 yard vintage match some years ago. It was more difficult to clean at 25 yards than the A/23-5 at 50 yards.

[QUOTE=COW 54;12304623]Lee, looks like your getting back to your old self.. Especially with that Kimber target

It's good to see that the iron sighted rifles are making a name for themselves.

Thank you Stan,I find the open sight shooting to be most rewarding. The Kimber is quite a surprise with several ammo selections.

Thank you Hank, I'll give a scope targets a go as soon as I can.

Thank you Jack, temps were warm, a lot of wind and a lot of distortion in the atmosphere. Was a tough day at the range. I spent a couple of hours trying to get the 100 yard match shot but the wind and visability won. The next two weekends are egg shoots and I need to get some bench time prior to if I have any intent on placing well.

I owe some change on that $1.20....

Had my targets printed, gear ready, soon to head out and be the first on the 1st.... then ōystein posted just as I logged out to head to the range.

But the early bird gets the worm! Good shooting ōystein, and glad to see the weather is breaking for you.


Hank is already knocking out some scoped targets as well, and Ray and Lee with the irons. Some good shooting all around.


As for that C2 irons target Lee.... for me I think it's a nope, nope, and nope. I took the green version one day trying to figure out my globe inserts, and could hardly see the targets, much less think about drawing a decent sight picture on them, The C3 irons looks tough too, close spacing makes it hard.... at least for me. I might try to make a run on one regardless, maybe use a post if I have to.




As for me, some dimes whooped me today.


RFC Alias: Signmaster
First Name: Bob
Score, 70/120
Class: C2 scoped
Sights: Simmons 4x32
Rifle Make: Rossi RS22
Weather Conditions: Indoor
Excuses: Nope

Got a break from any nearby boomers for practice and sighters, then a couple jumped in when I started shooting the fun target. Such is life at a busy indoor range.

I did shoot better on the mini monster RFC target, like the C2 irons used this month. Altered my rest setup trying to get more stability on a small rest area. I might shoot the dimes again this month.... without nearby boomers I think the rest mods helped.


Including a photo of the current rest setup. The tables we have are only 15" deep, so no room for any decent real solid rest. Even with this short rifle, it's a challenge to get solid. The butt end is supported with my hands and shoulder only, though now that I lowered it I can at least have a hand on the foam. As set up is the limits of how far I can move the blocks away from each other. I might see if I can improvise a bag setup for the rear.

I didn't have any Aguila to shoot, however, we do have some agave tequila on hand at the house. That should be worth some points, or at least comfort me when I barely get half points on a target!

Thank you for the kind comments ōystein and Bob.

Bob, with that setup I can only imagine the challanges at hand. Looks like some pretty good shooting to me.

Nice job Bob on a pesky target. And tequila ought to be worth something I would think.
