    Default Conventional Pistol 2nd Challenge

    All firing is done standing offhand no support, one hand only. 3 catagories, .22, Centerfire (any caliber .32 or larger) and .45. Any pistol or revolver of appropriate caliber, any sights. Score after 10 rounds are fired.
    Shots touching a scoring ring receive the higher value. Xs score 10 points, but X count shall be used to break ties. Post a picture of targets with score and aggregate score. Report points and number of Xs as 285-28X. Match opens 1 September 2010 and closes 30 September 2010.

    As match director and judge, I shall not compete. Winner will be awarded 404+ rep points (plus whatever others might give in recognition of effort).

    National Match Course (a perfect score is 300 - 30X)

    50 yards Slow fire 10 rounds fired in 10 minutes B-6 target

    25 yards Timed fire 2 strings of 5 rounds each string fired in 20 seconds B-8 target



    25 yards Rapid fire 2 strings of 5 rounds each string fired in 10 seconds B-8 target

    Alternate one

    25 yards Slow fire 10 rounds fired in 10 minutes B-16 target

    25 yards Timed fire 2 strings of 5 rounds each string fired in 20 seconds B-8 target

    25 yards Rapid fire 2 strings of 5 rounds each string fired in 10 seconds B-8 target

    Alternate two

    50 feet Timed fire 2 strings of 5 rounds each string fired in 20 seconds B-3 target

    Good Luck to all!

    You may fire the course as many times and submit as many entries as you want but the aggregate score shall be for each set of all three events.

    Entrants may fire in any or all categories as they choose. Firing a 3 gun event is not required. (But it is more fun!)

    22 for September. Brick, there are 2 very close that appear to both be 10s. I photographed the plugs for your call. Counting them as 10s, I score it 291-11.

    Centerfire for September, I score it as 274-5. I love shooting this pistol but I really jerk the trigger in rapid with iron sights.

    45 score for September, 283-7. That is a good score for me and I am happy with a total for the 3-gun at 848-23.

    Very good shooting! You set the bar very high for others.

    I don't recognize your .22, what is it?

    I'm told the S&W Model 52 has an very unforgiving trigger. I've never had the oppurtunity to shoot one myself. I always used my .45 for centerfire except when I was just starting and used a K-38 Masterpiece.

    The stocks on your .22 & .45 look interesting also. I can't make up my mind if they might be from Randall Fung or Arnie Vitarbo.

    The 22 is a 208 Hammerli with a Rink grip.

    This centerfire S&W is a 952 (9mm). They were modeled after the 52 and come out of the performance center. I also have a 52. They are accurate and, I agree with you, they are unforgiving. IMHO that is due to a light front and a slow round, 38 Special WC. The 952 I think is more forgiving because of a little more front end mass and the 9mm is faster getting it out of the barrel quicker.

    The 45 grip is actually a homemade grip that I bought at a gun show for around $20 and they fit me really well. Best $20 I have ever spent!

    Thanks again for doing this fun match.

    Great equipment! I haven't seen a 208 in 20 or more years.

    C'mon guys it's half past September and I've only got one entrant.

    Saleen did a fine job on his timed and rapid fire, but there's room in slow fire.

    Give it a try!
