Not to make it an excuse but I do have a Stomach Ulcer that I am on my 3ed med. All have made me unstable on my feet and shaking at times. But hey, MAN UP! Right! LOL

Maybe someone can merge into one thread:

I posted mine two notches down, I am
really surprised I managed to score a 60
against your 50.

I thought for sure you were going to beat
me when I only scored a 60 when I did

Please correct me if in any way I
misunderstood the rules.

Same Rules As laid out
in STCM(SW)'s post last month:

Used the Scattered Pool Balls target from
printed out on a standard 8.5x11 sheet of

15-shots, one per each ball. Slow Fire

10-yards range (I measured it off with a
35' tape
measure and placed me feet so that the
muzzle of my
gun was on the 30-foot mark give or take a
few inches.

Worked, left to right, top to bottom; just
like when
you write a letter taking one shot at each
ball. As
you can see I was not holding low enough
on my bulls
eye hold with this gun to begin with
(sights are set
for about 50-60 yards).

A shot where you "touch the ball" at least
getting the
edge of your shot to overlap on the edge
of the ball
or better is worth 5-points. A shot in
the center
ring of the ball is worth 10-points. The
#8 Ball is
worth double (10 & 20 points
respectively). If you
hit the same ball twice by accident (as I
did with the #8 ball hitting low when
shooting at the
#9 ball) you don't get to count it twice.
Or at least
that is how I understand it and scored my

My Target:

Close Up of the Info/Score Section:

I shot this "cold bore" as in no warm up
or practice
shots first. Was the first thing I shot
bicycling to the range this afternoon. I
don't know
if that is a requirement or not, but
thought I'd
better do it that way if this is supposed
to be a

Last month the target scored at 70 points
so looks
like I'm starting from behind on this.

I think next time I'll shoot with one of
my 45s the
bigger holes might help me a little, I
might have
scored 65 if the larger diameter bullet
had let me
score on the #5 ball.

Oh yah, that load data
is "off book" and not pressure
tested so copy at your own peril !!!

As far as excuses go ~ the only thing I
can give is that my range is currently
infested with those little flying blood
sucking critters and I forgot to put bug
spray in the bicycle bag and being a
little sweaty from bicycling to the range
it attracted them right to me like crazy.
I was having to stop to swat way too much.
Target shooting while being eaten alive by
bugs, as you say "Man Up !!!"

What part of, "the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be INFRINGED" don't you understand ?!?!?

To the most serious charge of "ARMING WOMEN" I plead guilty on multiple counts.
