Mr. Completely October Pumpkin-Postal Festival!

You can blast this pumpkin all month long!  This match is designed so anyone can make points, and you have the opportunity to earn impressive scores if you can hit the extra points.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6nCZQXbpT7XanlRSWZUbDlab1E/edit?usp=sharing

All shooting should be offhand, at 15 feet with pistols.  If you want to shoot with a rimfire rifle, back it out to 25 feet, or more if you want a challenge.  Shoot as many guns as you can haul to the range, and we will sort them out into classes when you submit your scans.  We will divide them up into rimfire, centerfire, and by the type of sights you have, (iron or optical).   Take 10 (Ten) shots at each target you submit.

Points:
1 point for a shot on the pumpkin.
2 points for a shot in an eye.
2 points for a shot in the mouth.
3 points for a shot in the stem.
Extra 2 points if you hit the pupil of an eye.
Extra 2 points if you hit a big tooth.
Extra 3 points if you hit a small tooth.

Click Here or on the pumpkin for the link to the target pdf.  Submit your scans by the end of October to truebluetravelinman (at) gmail (dot) com.

UPDATE ! UPDATE! UPDATE!  Merle wrote to us that he would like to shoot centerfire rifles on this target, and also pistol caliber carbine, and of course if you shoot it, we will score it.  Here are suggestions for shooting centerfire long guns:

Centerfire rifle with iron sights; 50 yards, sitting or prone with your arms (and sling if you have one) supporting the rifle.

Centerfire rifle with magnifying optics; 100 yards, sitting or prone with your arms (and sling if you have one) supporting the rifle.

When shooting at 50 or 100 yards with centerfire rifle, shoot only 5 rounds, and double the points you make on the target.

Pistol caliber carbine with iron sights: 25 feet, sitting, prone or braced; sling OK, but please don't sandbag it on the bench.

Pistol caliber carbine with magnifying optics; 50 feet, sitting, prone, or braced, sling OK, but please don't sandag it on the bench.

First, A Fleet Discount...

...and now, a Free Cat!


Either our vet really likes us, or she sees us as na├»ve young country bumpkins.  Mr. Larry Mittens was a fixture at the vet's office, and she fixed him, wormed him, and vaccinated him; then she gave him to us!  He's a sweetie, and he fits right in.

That Interruption...

Just days after the last post, my husband was bitten by one of our cats, and that event took over for almost a month. There were six days in the hospital, another week of IV treatments twice a day, and another week off of work.  We are doing much better now.  Don't get bit by a cat!

October e-Postal Scores

Pizza Night was a wild success, and while it was tough to get a high score with this target, everyone was able to shoot a respectable score. You can wash all this pizza down with a cold one over at Danno's blog with the November contest.

Many Thanks to all who took the time to shoot and send in their targets!
