Shot the Rimfire and Centrefire Open sight divisions today. Rimfire wasn't tooooo bad, but CF I managed an amazing score of 166. That sets the low point, I hope. :)

Rimfire Glass next weekend hopefully.

EDIT: Centrefire was with the 3.5" barrelled Sauer & Sohn from 1942 - 13 years older than me. :)

I use “cover stock” from Staples for my targets. Not as heavy as card stock but stiff enough that I get nice bullet holes that don’t tear.
What weight paper? Any cotton content? My 24 pound paper tears more than I'd like.

Thanks. I don't think the Office Max I was in this morning had anything quite like that. Certainly not for even close to that price!

Don’t worry, I was chasing you down there. I got a 184, in center fire with my Sig Sauer, P239.

We will do better next time!

Sent in my Rimfire/Optics scores last weekend - a respectable-but-not-stellar 271. Am happy with that, as it is about where I usually score. :)

I still have been unable to get to the range to practice, much less to shoot the match.
. I haven’t shot my .22 pistols in at least three months.

Six weeks will go by quickly for me since I'm trying to work out a better practice strategy. Normally when I go to the range, I set up targets at 30ft to warm up and then move the targets to 45ft for the rest of the session. I haven't seen much improvement for quite a while so I'm going to try a different practice routing. I plan to shoot at 20ft until I can reliably put ten shots into a single ragged hole and then move the targets to 25ft and repeat at 5ft intervals until I get back to the 45ft distance we use for the matches. I probably won't be shooting 300's for the upcoming match, but I figure it's time to try something different. Maybe by Match 16 I can get my scores above 250. :oops:

That's basically how I practice, though I can't consistently get that single ragged hole yet. The gun just seems to move around and wobble too much for me.

In my case, it's not the gun that wobbles. I think it's mostly me. ;-)

I lost my shooting partner and it's been harder to make myself get to the range as regularly as when I had someone to schedule and stick to the plans with. Getting back into it via a new defensive pistol class that's got a weekly schedule I can make myself get to at least twice a month, and I'm hoping that will get me going for standing-still lane time at least once a month on top of that. I can shoot the Bullseye during the lane time. Need a couple more sessions, three months and only having gone a couple times has really taken a toll on hitting anywhere in the black on those targets!

New to the club- I'll have to go cut some paper and send it. Neat idea.

Yay shooting! Boo La Niña! (Obviously, I haven't been taking advantage of the skiing.)

Not that this was literally the first sunny weekend day, but it's been a wet and chilly spring. Finally made it to the range for the first time since January to enjoy the sun. I was erratic, as usual, but was pretty happy with my warm-up/practice hour and a half.

Made my usual very mediocre showing at slow fire in rimfire, but hit 95 in timed fire and would have broken 260 for the first time ever except I made an accidental double-tap in my first rapid string and so dropped the 4th round well outside the Six ring. :oops:

Shot centerfire with my S&W 19 for the first time, and the less said, the better. At least my score was better than the last time I used my 10 mm for this game, when I didn't even break 200.

But the day overall was a success. I almost felt not-incompetent a couple of times, but my standards are low.

This is a neat idea, and I will give it a try. I expect to do horribly, but I like the goal orientation of such a challenge.

I have one question though...Does any one of you use prescription glasses to shoot? I just use reading glasses underneath safety goggles, and that seems fine at close distance, but even 15 yards is awfully blurry (especially indoor in relatively low light). I think I need real prescription glasses, but I don't know what to look for or what to ask the optometrist for. Any advice?

I shoot with prescription glasses. My frames are medium-sized rounds. The normal glare-reduction treatment should be good. If you shoot outdoors, maybe yellowed or standard sunglasses.
Also, your glasses do not count as protective eyewear. I wear these over mine, they fit great and I forget they're on after a minute. http://a.co/fRP9QBW

They never fog up and don't glare. I have been hit in the face with brass and it didn't mark the shield at all.

Thanks. Are these just regular prescription glasses, or did you get them specifically for shooting? Also are bifocal or progressive lenses?

BTW I fixed my original post. The distance I’m starting too have issues is past 10 yards, not feet. (That would be pretty bad. )

One minor correction - some eyeglasses do count as protection. When I worked at Newport News Shipbuilding I spent the extra money to get that option. Check your eyeglass supplier to see if they offer that option. :cool:

Mine are regular progressive bifocals. Some folks get "special" glasses, with the "focal point" adjusted to suit their discipline.
