Probably too late but I think can shoot the match tomorrow, at least the rimfire class.

The 21st Bullseye match has come and gone. There were only three shooters. I will post the results later this week.

I am sure that the lack of participation is due in large measure to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, until things return to normal, I am suspending the Bullseye matches. With apologies to those who have shot the last few matches, it is just not worth continuing them until some sense of stability returns.

When I took this on, I did so temporarily, pending Paco's imminent return. He has not come back. I hope that he is well and otherwise engaged. Simply put, with the meager turnouts over the last year or so, I have lost my enthusiasm. If anyone would like to take over administering the matches, I would be happy to pass on the mantle.

Bucolic
thanks for the update - and all your hard work in the past. :thanks:
Thanks for all you did on these, Bucolic!

I joined up a little too late to get into this round, but look forward to taking last place in future events.

I've been giving this some thought. I'd be willing to coordinate the next Bullseye Match. I'd be happy to sit the matches out and coordinate instead. My targets are not looking ready for prime time yet anyway.

Bucolic, if you're still interested in passing this on, just let me know what's involved.

Everyone else, if you've got ideas on how to keep this going during the pandemic, let me know. I know range access is likely the major obstacle for most.

perhaps stretching the time limit out a bit? I know that several times I got knocked out because of thunderstorms - or high heat and humidity. usually when I fiddled around until the last minute, so perhaps some extra time.....

also, I really liked the even handed matches - perhaps bring them back too?

thanks for your consideration... :beer2:

Thanks, Merle. There’s not much to pass on. I can email you the instructions ( Word format and the target PDFs. I can also email you the results from the recent matches.

We would need to sort out the email
address to which scores are sent. We may need help from shinzen on that. That’s about all.

I still need to post the most recent results. Sorry for the delay.

Let me know what you decide.

I have some thoughts on how to raise participation. Because so many threads come through many people may not be aware of of the bullseye match or some might be intimidated because they think it is too advanced a level. So maybe sending out an email (the moderators could help with this) to make everybody aware of this going on and explaining how fun and informal it is might help.

I just got back from the range today. It was 92F. Tried my hand at the rimfire class as a lark.
:rofl:
I'm gonna need some work. On the bright side, my best and worst scores were within 4 points. Makes me feel a little better about rapid fire.

Hot damn, my form needs work.

Hey Bucolic, it was actually me, cooper, who's offering to coordinate this. Can you send all that via private message or do you need my email?

Best, cooper.

Merle, thanks for suggestion. I think longer time frame is a good idea. I'm very new to all this, what's an even handed match?

Done. Thanks to Bucolic for running these matches. I'll take a stab at keeping the Bullseye match running. Give me a short bit to get this together and we'll aim for starting something before the end of the month. Still open to ideas--appreciate the ones posted so far. I know it's a challenge for folks to get to the range during the pandemic, but hopefully this will provide a little "social distance friendly" amusement for those who can find a place to shoot.

Best,
cooper

My suggestion to simplify the match would be to combine the iron and glass categories. I don't believe a red dot makes precision shooting any easier. I believe it's more like an equalizer to help those whose sight is declining. The match results here and elsewhere seem to bear that out. (In speed shooting I do think they're an advantage.) In exchange, perhaps we could still submit multiple entries, one per gun, or for the same gun in different configuration (like a red dot), or stance (one-handed vs. two-handed).

Also perhaps the "no do-over" requirement is a perverse incentive to wait until the last minute to run the match, at the risk of missing the deadline. I know I sometimes run a practice round, in match conditions, and end up with a decent score, thinking I could submit it, but a) the rules say we can't really do that, and b) there's always the chance I could do better in a next trial. Why not just send the best match result over the match period?

Haven't been here long enough to have a good baseline for comparison, but if #21 is representative, optics don't seem to make a substantial difference.

Thank you, Bucolic!
