    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.

    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)
    [​IMG]
    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.

    Not sure what you were trying to point to. I shoot several IPSC and IDPA classes as well as an avid, as I can be in the service, 3 gun shooter. I am familiar with those forms. I was under the assumption that his goal was to make a simple and easy type of shoot without the need for ROs or setting up it tearing down time.

    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.

    My point was there is an entire sub forum dedicated to competition shooting and this isn't it.

    Those are only seen by that sort of people and some of them like to squish creativity and new ideas to wrench with their shooting sport. This just brings different ideas and mindsets to the table to brain storm. Also most people, especially cell phone users cant access or dont know how to navigate the site as well as others. Giving the link is great, maybe what he wanted is in there, maybe not. I just dont like it when people throw out a general statement or link without saying anything else because obviously the poster either didn't know or felt that this didn't fit into the competition bracket because it isn't a sanctioned event or style.

    I don't remember seeing a a rule in the actual Competition Forum requiring an sanctioning.

    The app for this site is very user friendly. Well except for multi quoting. It's what I use 80% of the time.

    Slippery Slope. I think I'm going to post some pics of my car in the reloading forum.

    Just trying to help the OP out as I'm sure his thread would get more traffic over there.

    I'm not sure if you've found out how to yet, but multi-quoting is pretty simple. You click on the post that your wanting to quote and then check the box on the left. Do that for those you want to quote and then tap the box you would use to make a normal reply to the thread and just select "multi-quote"

    I'm sorry, but being an old guy and disabled to boot, if I get down in the prone position, I won't be able to get back up. There must be a lot of young guys on this forum. You young guys have at it. I think I'll sit this one out and watch what all of you can do. Good luck to you, it sounds like a lot of fun and I'll have fun watching.

    Alright take a piece of fishing wire and put it on your target to see if you can split that at 25 50 100 yards
