With 24-hour on call for work a lot lately and the fire clean up at Dad's house, I didn't get to the range at all in the last two months but had fun looking at the entries. Still, I hated not to get out and play with the household Xanthinum series Hypersonic Vetterli conversion (even if it meant dipping into the household cache of rimfire.41 Xanthinum rounds)
Zercool had in his plans to shoot the target, but glad so many of you did participate. There was a nice range of scores due to the variances of weaponry but it did prove to be difficult to break 70 (which was at least partly by Partner's nefarious design) and we had a couple of people send photos for those extra points for the unusual. .
|Billl||Ruger Mk I||73|
|T McAllister||Ruger Mk II||73|
|Kim||Ruger Single 10||65|
|Pat B||S&W 617||63|
|Bill K||Ruger 22/45||62|
|Merle||Ruger Single 6||57|
|Mac||Remington Target Master||48|
|Chester||Marlin 39 century||49|
We had a tie for first on this one and some pretty high scores. It did become pretty apparent though that using a .22 was a pretty risky proposition unless you were always aiming dead center. Several rounds slipped between the teeth!
|Merle||Enfield No 2||67|
|Mike B||S&W M&P||63|
|Pat B||Detective Spl||61|
|Bill K||Glock 17||61|
Merle takes first in this class. His target was a actually a 42 but Partner gave him a hefty bonus for shooting with his break top Enfield No 2 and sending in a pic. I agree!
Bill K shot the target with his every day carry Glock 17 which was neat to see, the regular carry piece in e-Postal action! Thank you Bill K!
|Mr B||Ruger 10-22||70|

Mr. B takes top honors in this class! Again, plenty of .22s slipped through the teeth here! Marty F - we couldn't quite read the name of your firearm on the printed target, so please add it to the comments if you see this.
There were only two entries in this class but Bill comes in with the top scoring target (sans bonus points) and he does it with a HiPoint 4095 carbine. That's some fine shooting, right there! Bill, Slap some gears on it and you would have won the whole darn shooting match.
However that title goes to Nancy from Excels at Nothing who shot an open class target with a reproduction Brown Bess. That just has cake and win written all over it.
Partner figured she scored about a 70 on the target itself but it's hard to tell because after firing a .765" ball at it 10 times there's not much target left! Anyhow using a smoothbore musket earns her a substantial number of points and puts her at top dog in this month's match.
We hope everyone enjoyed shooting this month's e-postal. For next months devilish target, pay a visit to Bill's Idle Mind and check out July's match.
