Default Who's up for a FTF saves the Tata's shooting match?

This is a shooting match for fun and to donate to Cure Breast cancer.

Rules would be.

1. $20 entry fee to be paid via pay pal or mail of a personal check.
2. 1 target Use MR-31c target. http://www.6mmbr.citymaker.com/f/NRABullTargets.ZIP
3. 5 shots no sighters while shooting group (Must be 5 shots in a row)
4. Any rifle and cartridge combo.
5. Target distance 100 yards.
6. take a picture or scan target and email to me with cartridge data. I will use On Target software to measure all the groups and post them in the results thread. OnTarget Software
7. Match would start NOW and go for 3 weeks.
8. All money will go to Breast cancer in the form of a donation in the name of the Forum. Firearmstalk.com forum.
9. You may purchase as many targets as you wish for $20 each.

Who wants to try and do this?

Just the supporting members raised $950 for Soldiers coming home from combat. I would like to see that broken and would really like to see it doubled.

So who would be up for it. As of right now I would not change the rules. It is a run what ya brung kind of match. I don't care if it is a custom built 7mm mag or a box stock 223 ar or 22 hornet that is 50 years old.

I like it. How about rimfire at 50 yards and center fire at 100. It does not matter who wins because all of the proceeds go to help booby cancer research. Why even measure the groups? Got any pink targets?

would love to participate but do not have access to 100 yard range. I'll send you $20 bucks...first one to match it can shoot my target. I keep bragging rights...

Same here. The only two ranges I have found are both 50 ft.

Tango you might just want to try a duel class event. Hand cannons for those who do not have access to long guns or outdoor ranges and long guns for the rest. I believe your on to something but you need to broaden the field, just a suggestion. Where do I send the twenty as I should be able to put some down range next weekend.

Are we shooting for highest score or tightest group?

Hey Tango, I think you may get a lot more entries if the fee to participate wasn't twenty bucks. Not trying to sound like a cheap bastard, but you have range fees, gas to get to the range, fees to participate in your contest, and once all is said and done, it's like a typical day of practice at the range for any one of us. Not to mention that conditions, ie. wind and inclement weather, will vary greatly from one location to the next.

Once again, this is just my two cents, however I think it's a great idea and I would love to participate, but don't know that I can afford to. Have to build my little woman an AR seeing as though she is completely hooked now and just shot a one inch three shot group at two hundred yards last Sunday.
