Thread: Post your targets!

  1. #1

    Post your targets!

    I figured it might be cool to have a thread here where people can take photos of their targets, and post them. The good (and bad) thing about doing this is everyone else will know how well each of us can shoot (or not).

    It's easy - take a photo of your target, and upload it here. Put down date, the distance to target, the gun you were using, and anything else you think might be relevant. This thread should be reasonably interesting, if we don't all get laughed off the forum.... :-)

    Once you all get your fill of laughing at me, nobody else should be afraid to post here. This is a target from June 25th at Miami Gun. I was shooting at 15 yards, using a S&W 357 with 38 special target ammunition. I didn't care about hitting the "bullseye" on the target - I just wanted to see how close my groups were. I would load 5 bullets, then close my eyes and spin the cylinder so I didn't know when I'd be doing a "dry fire". I'd shoot the 5 bullets, then move to a different part of the target to aim at and repeat. When I ran out of body parts, I just put some "x" markings on the paper and aimed at them. The numbers represent the sequence that I was shooting the groups in. I found the target very confusing while looking at it at home, so I photographed the back of the target (and reversed it). Everything then became much clearer. I suppose others here can do better with their eyes closed and one hand behind their back (see the beautiful example up above!!!), but I figure I'm learning....

    Targets of my last groundhog match. Light gun on left, heavy on right. Ended up 3rd with my heavy gun. 500 yard score with the light gun hurt!

    Thanks, Chuck. I have some backing sheets I can past these on top of. When I get to use some of them, I'll print them out.

    Which guns did you use for the targets in your previous post? ....and what is a "Groundhog Match"?

    I used my 2 target guns...both are similar in build. One is lighter than the other. The heavier of the 2 is actually my IBS legal light gun for 1k matches.


    The hog shoot here is a club organized match in which you shoot three different yardages, 100, 300 and 500 yards. 5 shots at each yardage for score with one sighter at 100 yards. Maximum points possible is 50 at each yardage. I believe the range record is a 147, so no perfect scores. 500 at this range is the deal breaker!

    I was trying to figure out what the targets mean.....
    at 500 yards the "heavy" gun is centered, but the lighter gun is off to the left.
    at 300 yards both guns seem to have shot the same.
    at 100 yards the heavier gun is spot-on.

    I assume you adjust your sights for the correct distance?
    Is the top left target "off" because of wind, or had you not yet adjusted for that?
    Are these all hand-held, or with the gun locked in place?
    Why does the 300 heavy gun target have 7 holes?
    At 100 yards, does the "worst" hole become the "sighter" shot for each target?
    Do I ask way too many questions?

    I don't even know if they have competitions like that around Miami.... I really need to learn how to shoot well with a rifle!

    The group is off by one click. I could not see any holes...so I just held the center and let them all go as fast as I could in order to shoot the same condition. My elevation come up was off. The wind could have drifted the group.

    At each yardage, I have my come ups wrote down and adjust scope accordingly. Change in temp has an affect on vertical. Hotter temperature outside equal more pressure means more velocity hence increased vertical.

    Both guns are shot using sandbags and a mechanical front rest.

    The extra 2 holes are from a guy cross firing on my target.

    The sighter is one round shot at a target taped below record hog targets. You get this lone shot to make sure you are close to zero or as a fowler shot.

    They may not have hog competitions, but I'm sure there are short range IBS benchrest matches.

    I must be learning here - everything you said makes sense to me.

    (I haven't yet shot at someone else's target by mistake - would find that VERY embarrassing!!! About as bad as when I've discovered I'm "driving" the wrong r/c car, and there's a marshal holding my car up in the air, yelling at me to look at him!! Bummer. Forget I said that.....)

    Targets - at my stage of things, I find it most useful to look at the back of my targets. Being able to adjust the sights to center my groupings over the bullseye is simple. Getting my hands to do what they should, so the groupings are tighter - that's another story entirely. That's why when I photograph my targets, I make sure I get a photo of the back side as well as the front.
