Has It Really Been Five Years?

October e-Postal Scores!

We had a total of fifteen targets submitted this month, and Bill's Bullseye Sights made a big showing. David shot with the ghost ring for the first time and we are amazed at how well it works. He managed to connect the eyes on two ghosts. There was plenty of good shooting by other entrants. Merle managed to touch both a bat and a ghost with one shot from his Browning Hi Power, boosting his score on that target to 100 points.  Bill managed to connect the eyes on one of his ghosts, getting a nice score with the aid of his ghost ring sight.
 
Mother Pattie-Ann shot for the first time since August, and she was thrilled.

October e-Postal: Boo! Boo! Boom!

Susan put together a Halloween-themed target again this year, and it's a good one! Shoot at 25 feet with pistols, 25 yards with rifles, any position as long as both hands are on your gun. CLICK HERE to download the pdf file.


Ten shots per target, multiple hits on any figure are OK. Add the pertinent info at the bottom of the target, scan or photograph your targets and e-mail them to TrueBlueTravelinman (at) gmail (dot) com. We will sort your targets out into classes by caliber and sights. Non-magnified red dots will be classed with iron sights. You have the rest of October, and maybe the first part of November; we will see how it goes.
 
Five points per hit on ghosts, ten points for bats, twenty points for an eye, fifty points for connecting the eyes.

Last Night, 7:41P, A 3.4 Rolled Through

From about five miles north of Fairfield, Illinois. It sounded like thunder, and felt like a truck wrecked on the road.
