Short month, but at least one extra day this leap year.
Target change for Rimfire.

Available at your local Wally World and other gun shops. 18 for a few bucks.
If you can figure out how to use it, the On Target program is good for the measurements, I still can't get it to work right for me.

Everyone please note that the 4" barrel range-to-target has changed for February.
Last month's rules are different from this month's.

I thought I would try a 7 yard (21') for fun to see if it would be something to add for March.
I posted some stuff in the January Shootout thread.
I did another 20 rounds and came up with this.
10 rounds at 7 yards, taking my good ol' time.
(P.S. Seem like 5.4gr load is a bit light, stovepipes quite often, only did 100 rounds so I'll shoot them off, had one FTFire 1st. strike)

DANG!
I just found out I don't have to release the trigger all the way between shots!
(Guess I should get "Pistols For Dummies." LOL!)
I let off just a hair and hear the click of ready to go again.

First entry for this month coming up shortly.

Took my new 1911A1 Compact to the range this morning just to get some more practice with it. Citadel (Armscor/Howa) out of the Philippines, 230 grain Winchester hollow point factory "personal protection" ammo. 10 Yards, B27 target

Non Taurus division, score 50/2X, but pretty spread out. Not too bad for the second time I've fired this gun though if I do say so myself. Picked it up this Monday. Still waiting on the ambidextrous safety parts to get here before I start carrying it as I'm left handed.

I'm going to give it a go tomorrow, my very first time! I think I understand the rules for the centerfire: with my PT809, it'll be five rounds at 15 yards with a B-27.

At what range do we shoot for the rimfire section? Thanks.

My understanding is the PT809 has a 4" barrel. So, "Target is a B-27 center (or full size silhouette) at 10 yards (30 feet) for barrel 4" and under."

Looks like 10yards to me.

Oops, you're right, I'm wrong. I've been thinking it's a 4.2" barrel for all this while. I didn't manage to try for the shootout today, as we were busy doing other stuff.

My friend rented a Springfield G.I. 1911, and those sights were really hard to use after getting used to three-dots. That weapon drew blood when my fingers slipped while racking the slide. I told everyone else that the bloodstains on my shirt were because he shot me with a .22.

Last month it was at 10 yards for rimfire. We'll have to wait for gwk1951 to edit his 1st post with the rules to indicate rimfire yardage.
Did I screw something up again?
I'll fix it.

One of these days I'll get the "cut and paste" done right.
I fixed it. 10 yards.

Just like gwk posted. This month, barrels 4" and shorter get to shoot from 10 yards. BBGun did well with his S&W snubby for December and January. :cool:

Thought I would do some fun stuff today.
B-27 30 yard reduced for 15 yards.
So it is half the height of a B-27 full size.

10 rounds at 15 yards.

SN850265.JPG

More fun stuff.

B-27 full size at 30 yards.
20 rounds. Score 111 of 200 possible. (outside the 7-ring or the silhouette = 0)
SN850269.JPG
I marked one hole as 2. I wasn't sure, so I pushed a bullet in the hole and it went all the way through.
They are so close together it is really hard to tell.
Tried the other holes and the bullet does not go through all the way.

gwk1951,

Our WalMart has Birchwood Casey targets in the 18 pack but they don't say Winchester. Are these the same targets? What are the diameters of the x, bullseye so we can measure and make sure.
