Even Handed Justice #4 Opens Today, Closes Oct 6

Post by Bucolic »

It's August and the rigors of the summer heat and humidity will soon no longer be an excuse to not get out and shoot the LGC postal matches. The participation in the recently-closed Bullseye match was not stellar.

The Even-Handed Justice matches are a one-hand variant of the Bullseye Match shot at ten yards instead of the usual fifteen. There are separate classes for rimfire and centerfire handguns and strong and weak hands. The first three matches have proven to be interesting and challenging, so, without further ado, the fourth in the series of Even-Handed Justice matches opens today and will close on October 6. Seven+ weeks should be a sufficient duration for even the most procrastinating shooter to participate and still allow enough time for a subsequent match before the winter chill sets in..

The rules for the match can be found here:

While the choice of targets within the constraints laid out in the rules is up to you, and many options are available, we have crafted some custom targets for use in these matches. Note that they are NOT official NRA targets and they should NOT be used in NRA-sanctioned events. Regardless of the targets you use, if you are printing downloaded targets, please make sure that they conform to the target norms. How do you know if the target conforms? Measure the diameters of the 4-ring on the B3 style target and the 6-ring on the B2 style target. They should measure approximately 7.3 and 8.3 inches, respectively. If they do not, check to see if your printer is scaling the PDFs before printing them. Also note that the 6 ring on the B3 style LGC targets may be slightly truncated on the right and left margins, depending on your printer. Judge for yourself if you think this is acceptable. PDFs of the targets can be found below:

As always, post any comments or questions. Most importantly though, GET OUT AND SHOOT THESE MATCHES. They are great fun and will help to sharpen your skills after the summer doldrums.

thanks - now I have some entertainment for the evenings!

just one question - since I have made a bunch of copies for the regular BE, are the rings the same size so they would be kosher to use?

I'm away from home and have no access to a printer, so I can't actually print & measure......

Okay, I shot my first match ever today! I used my Ruger MKIII with a red dot. Strong hand was all right but the left was particularly difficult because I have a right handed volthane target grip https://volquartsen.com/inventory_configurations/49 I've held bricks that were more comfortable.
Lot's of fun, here are the results;
Strong hand 248
Weak hand 187
I will shoot .45ACP next.

Not at all! My pattern for these is to rush off to the range the day of the deadline, practice with exactly one magazine, shoot the match, and send the scores directly from the range with about an hour or less to spare. :)

Do you ever shoot right/left simultaneously to save time? :smart:

:roflmao:

That’s worth a try!! As it turned out, I arrived at the range without my damn key ring- the only thing I had to shoot was my carry gun. :( so no rimfire this time...

But!! I did get to shoot the match with my ‘target’ SP 101! :bananadance:

I totally fluffed and didn't get to the range for this. I'd only been able to play archery this month due to gnarly schedule. But I still satisfied my target-directed motor skills addiction, nine out my recurve from from 25 yards with a flyer left handed.

I will work to open range time next match.

I haven't submitted before so I am not sure if I need to send my targets somewhere and I know the score isn't competitive but I promised! I shot 76/51/58 for a total of 185 strong hand with a .38 s&w pre model 10. I'm pretty bummed because while practicing I was in the low 90s on each stage but the range was noisy and I was distracted in the day I shot my final targets, so it is what it is. Keep doing the matches!

If you were scoring in the 90's for each stage, that's hot. (in my opinion) Yeah, real world conditions can get in the way. When I was in a 3 gun team competition, I shot the pistol portion (and shotgun) and was being thwacked in the left temple by the guy's compact .40 to the left of me- loud as hell even with double earpro and extra-annoying. I tilted my head so they'd mostly bounce off the brim of my hat and took my shots in between his. In the end, that kind of stuff is good to work through and helps hone the focus. :yes:

Send a photo of your score sheet to postalmatch@theliberalgunclub.com. Double check the pdf rules doc. at the top of this thread- I'm pretty sure that's the addy... at least that's where I sent my scores. ;)

I’ve been pretty distracted lately, but I’ll try to get the scores tabulated and posted by the end of this week. Sorry for the delay. The rigors of a new puppy and a lot of work around the farm have kept me away from the range for a while.

I wish I was closer- I enjoy farm chores and I would be happy to help out. :)

Thank you for putting on another EHJ iteration and for all the postal matches. I really look forward to them.

I dropped the ball on this one. I managed to get to the range last Friday before leaving town, but I was short on B-2 targets. I only shot strong hand rim-fire (scored 260). Then I left town and forgot to upload the scores when I got home Sunday. All I can say in my defense is that I've been juggling way too many things lately....
