8.5" x 11" target size?

Timed? If so time allowed?

Fast draw from holster freestanding?

Reload for your wheel gun included in time
allowed? (Reloading under time pressure?)

Open sights, right?

How did you rank? (Example= 3rd-of-18 etc)

We're the balls just targets or were you
supposed to play the game (shoot only all
the stripes or all the solids and then the
8 ball last)?

I've shot we're the target was a random
selection of playing cards and you were
supposed to try to make yourself a good
five card hand out of the cards available.
Just wondering if something similar was
done here with the pool balls?

I've been shooting this target for about 7, 8 years now.
When we first started there were about 6 or 7 guys.
Seems there is only me now...
10 YDS, slow fire and start upper right to left and work down.
Ball hit is 5 points, center is 10 points.
Score is double on the 8 ball.
Best I ever did was 120 one time.
Top score you can make is 160.

So this is kind of like a postal match, only instead of mailing targets in, you scan and post? That's a cool idea.

Me neither. I can scan but have no bloody idea how to send it out.
Other options? What distance to shoot targets?

Paul your eyes are worse than mine!
10yds written on the target.

Options? With no printers neither one of us are in.

I played this game with STCM(SW) a time or two and he beat me soundly.    Long time ago, on this forum.

We also had a rifle version. I might have beat him at that? Used my 204 Ruger varmint rifle.

The targets were avail here for download & printing out. Then we'd shoot and post 'em.

It's been a while, and I often feel a little guilty for letting him just post the targets that he shoots, without me even entering.

It's kinda fun, if anyone wants to pile in and do it.

Wait - the targets were avail at Targetz, not here. All online. Just print 'em out, shoot 'em, score 'em and take a photo then post it here.

It is kinda fun. Maybe I'll do so again. Honestly, I just keep forgetting.

The problem is that not everyone has a printer, some little easily replicated DIY target is the answer, everyone has something to take a picture with..

At the moment my printer is out of ink, I go to town infrequently.

I can print you up some if you want. Then all we need to fond is
someone who can scan and post them for us. Any volunteers?

A better answer is to find a target readily available at Wal Mart or some other chain store. Almost everyone has a cell phone with a camera and a computer.

Take a picture of the target, connect your phone to your computer and then post the picture.
