Those odd shapes were indeed quite elusive. I tried several times, and never mustered more than 17 points. 28 is really impressive.

I dunno, they seemed to wiggle all over the place. I think at least one even jumped to the next lane to avoid me.

If I could just stop breathing for a while I might be able to hold somewhat steady.

Fun tho

I was managing to get to the range fairly often when I shot this one and I believe it helped my scores. I'm not sure I could do as well today. I think we should do another. :beer2: I need to work on the 9mm :roll:

I'm thinking maybe I need to be lightly sedated to reduce the twitching and spasming that seems to throw my sights all over the paper when I'm allegedly "holding" on the target.

You did pretty darn good this time. You had the best centerfire scores. FWIW, I can't hold the target worth beans. If I can't get it the way I want it within a second or two, I lower the pistol and start over. The only exception is the rapid fire sequence of the Postal Matches where there's not time to put it down. Funny thing is I often do best on that sequence. I still haven't figured out what's going on there. :no: More data needs to be collected.

Yeah, I do better on the rapid fire too. Not enough time to get shaky.
