This has nothing to do with anything, but Snoopy and the flying doghouse cracked me up.
Now where was I?
Right. We had several submissions this month, all of them in .22 LR, So thankfully people have at least a little ammo out there. (I've been informed that the local range is no longer limiting sales to 'range only' so that's encouraging.)
In class 1, Rimfire Iron sights, the rundown goes like this
Mike B S&W 617 Revolver (22LR) Iron sights 180
Billl Ruger Mk I Iron Sights 130
Pat B S&W 617 (22LR) Iron sights 120
SCSon Ruger Single Six Score 90
Engineering Johnson Browning SA-22 Takedown Iron sights 90
SCSon Ruger 22/45 (Iron Sights) 40
Danno Ruger Single Six 30
Danno Ruger 22/45 (Iron Sights) 30
I'm pretty impressed with the scores in the triple digits on this one. Personally I find with iron sights it was tricky to figure out the exact location than more than the lower two aircraft, however the target did blur into a near vertical line in my case which made it easy to shoot five quick shots from top to bottom.
In class 2, Rimfire Optic sights, the winners are...
Mr. Completely High Standard w/ OKO Red Dot 260
True Blue Sam Ruger Mk III 1.4x scope 170
True Blue Sam Ruger Mk III Red Dot 130
True Blue Sam Ruger 10/22 Red Dot 130
Engineering Johnson Ruger 10/22 3x scope 130
Mrs.True Blue Sam Ruger Mk III Red Dot 60
Billl Remington Nylon 66 (scoped) 50
I'd say Mr. C is the big winner on this one and some of the hits he made on this target made it look easy!
When I was putting together this target I found that a 3 power scope and a fair bit of patience pretty much assured a hit on one of the smaller planes, so that's why I encouraged people to at least try to shoot this quickly. I didn't end up timing myself (the range frowns on cameras) but I did enjoy shooting this by jostling the line holding my target just before each string. It really forced me to touch off my shots quickly.
As for Timed entries, I received a few comments about a 3 or 4 second string being impractical. I also received a timed entry from Mr. C. Once again, he used his Hi Standard to shoot a target scoring 140 (one hit on all of the top four planes) which is a good target, but the really impressive bit is that his string time was 2.46 seconds.
Once you've picked your jaws up off the floor, why don't you join me in congratulating Mr. Completely as the "Ace of Aces"
