Competition thread
 
I've seen a lot of people who brag about their guns including me and how accurate they are so let's see you guys do some competitions

how you pick a set distance a set number of shots and you take a picture of your best results with a ruler next to where you were shooting or a quarter
And you both post your pictures here

nothing wrong with the friendly competition

Why not do a postal shoot. All targets are sent to a person not competing and scored. Classes can be set up or it can be open.

Lol I figured it be easier just to score it here besides if they sending it to somebody else not posting pictures then we can see the competition either half the fun is watching people have their competitions heck if you wanna post a video from youtube hear about your competition go for it

Really only shows who has the best bench gun still. A set of 3 or 4 different positions. Like shooting every cut on a barricade at 200 yds all in under 2 minutes. 3 shots in each position Plus prone, so that is what 5 positions? No need for a reload or anything else besides just shooting and changing positions.

do no harm, do know harm

That was my idea also, a good old fashioned 3 position shoot, no bench. 5 shots per target is usually the standard. Prone, sitting/kneeling, standing, all unsupported w/ only a sling, no bipods or rests of any kind.

How about a shotgun competition?
Any size 12ga. barrel, any choke you want, scopes OK, range 50yds, shooting Winchester AA Heavy Target Load or Winchester AA Super-Handicap Heavy Target ammo.
And hit a target that looks like this.(6"x6"target)

And this is only 2nd place.
Here is a video of a place that does this kind of competition.
You will get a kick out of this, you haven't seen a big gun until see this.

I have designed, RO'd and shot lots of different stage designs and ideas. I suggested a barricade because several methods and positions can be shot using it. They are simple and easy ti build and most ranges have one. I love shooting steel, especially at distance, gives you instant feedback. Something closer to NRA bullseye shooting probably much closer to what he is wanting just putting his own twist on it. My favorite twist when I setup and design a 3 gun stage is setting up pigeon flippers with 3 clays per flipper. Really makes yoh watch your round count and think about you shoot the stage.
