Target for the July shoot.  The barrel waves around like a magicians wand trying to shoot this one.

Good job everyone who has shot the match so far. I see some really good targets. Everybody only has 2 more days to shoot and enter your targets. Aim small, miss small.

Going to try again now and hopefully have something to post. Last attempt was "zero" and not worth posting.

There are 3 targets, correct??   50 yd smoothie, 50 yd rifle, and 35 yd pistol?  How do u know what people are shooting if they dont say what the target is?

The way I understand this, Keith, is 3 targets are allowed for score, in each category.
With the targets so far put up, I just assumed they were all rifle targets shot at 50 yards.
Had someone used a smoothbore or pistol, I'd think they would have said so - that was my understanding.

I shot my final target this morning.  I really like shooting this original Joseph Lang hunting rifle, but I seem to have a propensity for throwing one ball off the bull.  The old grey mare (me) she ain't what she used to be...but apart from the flyer which I know was me, I'm happy with me offhand group.

Can't wait for next month's event....

OUTSTANDING TARGET, except for that snow bird! I've had my fair share of those.

I'm happy with my targets...both of them.  Nice shooting done by all.  There's a big big difference between 25 yards and 50 yards when shooting off hand.  One of my favourite targets for hosting a match here on my property amongst friends is the NMLRA novelty target.  Even at 25 yards, it humbles some of the best shooters.

I shot 1 target with my new SMR .45 tonight.  1st shots ever out of it.  Scored a 10.  Shooting a little low.

Then shot 2 targets with my new Dodds .50 rifle.  Scored 10 on both of them.  Shot 60 gr 3f on 1st target and shot a little high.  Shot 50 gr on 2nd target and shot a little low.

I shot a target with the Dodds a couple weeks ago with 55g 2F and shot a 20 with a nice tight 4 shot group and 1 flyer.

Cant wait for next month.  Hopefully weather will be cooler and Ill stop working 6 days a week.  Congrats and good shooting guys.

Can't wait to see what the winner selects for our August "postal match".
Here is an idea.
 2 different targets shooter picks which one they want to shoot at. First is at 50 yards or further for 39 caliber rifles, smooth bores and trade guns. Second is a different target at 30 yards or closer for 36 caliber or smaller, a true squirrel shoot.
Just an idea. Everyone has a favorite firearm let them choose which they want to shoot.

Or a 2 man team.  Teams are drawn and the scores are added together.

Since Fall Friendship has been cancelled I suggest a ‘woodswalk’ shoot for this month. One shot on 5 targets at different distances sort of thing...

....not that I’ve earned a say....
