Normally I don't call a winner. We had real good entries from the usual suspects, Billl turned in a 16 and Mr. C forgot his holdover a couple times to score "only" 13. However Mr Borland turned in a perfect target. 19 shots, 19 targets hit. Didn't even need the free miss. I politely inquired about if he'd followed the course of fire.
I confess to having shot it 2-handed. 10m purists would wrench their garments at the sight, so, for them, I shot a second target 1-handed. I pulled one shot a bit and used all 20 pellets. I didn't see any style points being awarded - I figured a 19/19 beats a 19/20, so in it went.Nope, no style points. But I guess if you've spent a significant amount of time shooting air pistol at 10M, shooting 1" dots at 7yds is child's play. Great Shooting Mr. Borland! Thanks for entering the match. Here's the perfect target:
Finally, "Getting Schooled" is up over at Random Nuclear Strikes.
I was feeling pretty good about my 7's... I hope Mr. Borland keeps shooting with us! The target I am planning for September will be a challenge for him, and will be fun for us normal shooters.
Thanks, folks! Postal Matches help keep the fundamentals sound - and they're fun, so I enjoy shooting them when I can. I marked TrueBlueSam's September match in my calendar, and am looking forward to it. Thanks for a good one, Danno!
