Rentacop, were both in the DC area. Let me know when and where and I'll be happy to verify your results, wouldn't mind trying my hand at the target too. I've shot a fair amount of rounds from my Glock 22 at a 50 yard 4'X3' metal target, I can hit it most of the time so I would guess I can hit 1, maybe 2 out of 10 in a less than 1' target but no more than that.

IMHO I am with Ineff on the 50 yrd targets. Not practical, but if either one of ya can score an eye shot and keep consistant tight groupings, with a handgun, you are definitely a much better man than me and that ain't saying much. I can hit metal silhouettes @ 50 like Ineff said, body hits, but few, if any, bullseyes.

I think we should make several different divisions so more people can contribute to the challenge.

50 yard

25 yard

15 yard

7 yard rapid fire

etc....

I'm sure we could do all kinds of postal/photobucket matches here, and I'm sure it would be a fun thing for the forum members.

Cpt. and Yunas :
I thank you for offering to be there but I've found someone with a video camera and knowlege. Hopefully, I'll be able to make a video and post a pic and still be relatively anonymous on the Web.
It is obvious now that this won't fly on the honor system.

Thanks again. I am not ruling out meeting in person to do this.

The indoor range where I shoot has a 25 meter limit for handguns. I've shot my revolvers at longer ranges with decent results, but haven't tried it with my semi-autos.
