November 2009- Pistol Match- Win and Deck Out Your Ruger

#1 Post by Inquisitor » Wed Nov 04, 2009 12:48 pm

This month's postal match is sponsored by Bullseye Pistol Gear .

Since this match is about rimfire pistols and one of the most popular rimfire pistol manufacturers is Ruger, the prizes here follow the theme of "Deck Out Your Ruger"!

With that in mind, Bullseye Pistol Gear has been gracious enough to sponsor this match by donating the following prizes:

1. a Clark "Customizing The Ruger Mark II Pistol" DVD !

But wait, that's not all!!! Oh no, this isn't just some every day, ordinary, contest. Despite the coolness of the DVD, Bullseye Pistol Gear will also give the winner

2. a $50 gift certificate to spend on *anything* on their Ruger page.

So, *if* you are lucky enough to win this month, you will get both the DVD on how to customize your Ruger as well as some money to get it accomplished.

These are great prizes for a great match. Go thank Bullseye and at least give them a visit and check out all of their gear. They have a good selection and I have been pleased with their service.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How to play:


After talking over with Paladin, briefly, I think this can be open to any air pistol or 22 rimfire.

The rules are as I have sketched them out here:
http://www.theliberalgunclub.com/wordpr ... er-pistol/

Alternative single target (10M):
http://www.airgunarena.com/images/b/bc/10mairpistol.pdf


Its a variation on the 10 Meter ISSF match rules.

A couple of notable exceptions:
  • *Any .177 or .22 caliber Air Pistol can be used, and obviously allowing for .22 rimfire (which I guess could be LR or Shorts). This includes repeaters.
    *Bonus if you use .177 single shot AP is you can also enter your scores at http://www.airgunarena.com/index.php/Co ... Match_Info for a chance at their tops slots.
    *They also allow non-magnifying red dots, this one will as well.
This will be a 20 shot match, 5 per bull, and shot in 20 minutes.

Submit scores with this form:
https://spreadsheets.google.com/viewfor ... cy1QOUE6MA

Keep hold of the scanned targets for now, winners will have to verify their scores.

Deadline is November 30th, you can find 20 minutes to shoot this between now and then, hell you can probably order a pistol and have it delivered and still shoot this between now and then.

Any takers? Please post if you intend to shoot :)

Might have a line on a prize that is worth of mention, stay tuned (pending agreement from the LGC powers that be and the gracious vendor who has offerred it).

Fun stuff :)

I downloaded the target and there are 3 targets on each page a big target and 2 smaller ones how do I shoot 20 at 3? Do I have to put a Bowie knife up and split my last two shoots?

The 3 target one doesn't have the outer scoring rings, it assumes you can keep it inside the 5 ring. Its just a way to shoot 3 of the bulls on the same paper :)

If you want to change targets between 5 shot groups, use this one :)

We have a great prize pack from a great vendor lined up for this, stay tuned for the announcement, but you will want to shoot this.

Since it looks like there will be prizes, you will have to email your scanned targets. Stay tuned for the email address (I don;t want to volunteer Mark without telling him) :)

Ed, thanks so much for getting this set up.

Paladin, I think you will have quite a few challengers this time around.

Question on scoring.

What is the Bull worth 11pts?

Whom do we send targets to?

20 shots in 20 minutes, 5 per bull. 200 points total. 4 targets (see my math comment :)).

ISSF scoring is you only use the inner ring to break ties, it doesn't give you 11 points.

Am I correct in my assessment that you are undefeated in postal matches that you have actually entered?

I submitted my abysmal score for the postal match. I was tempted not to submit at all, but I think it's important to participate. Still, I feel compelled to write an excuse post:

1. This was the second time I've had a pistol shooting session, the first time with my new gun.
2. First time at this particular range.
3. I didn't have much time, so was a little rushed and didn't get much practice.
4. Whatever the trick to one-handed shooting is, I haven't figured it out yet. My hand was totally unstable.

I'm not going to bother submitting pictures of the targets since I am clearly not a threat to the prize. But don't get complacent, I'll keep practising and will soon dominate the postal matches. :twisted:

Seriously, I appreciate the effort of setting these matches up. Due to an unfortunate family situation it's hard for me to find time to do much of anything, including going shooting. The postal match provided the little extra motivation, the excuse to make the time. so I finally broke in the new gun at an unfamiliar range.

Keep the matches coming.

Maybe we can get Paladin to post tricks on one handed shooting and stance :)

You will laugh.

I use the wrist trainer thing.

No coffee on the day of shooting.

I do not wear my glasses the day before either except to drive.

I use a fencing stance.

No more than 2 shots before lowering arm.

Make the shots quick.

If I didn't wear my contacts I would walk into walls...... I think I will skip that one. What wrist trainer thing? YOu have a link?

OHHH... yeah. Somehow I thought you were saying you wear something on your wrists the day of shooting - like one of those things for bowlers. Now I got ya.
