    5 Card. No Draw.

    Bring your favorite pistol to the poker table target and take aim.

    10 Paces. Standing, one hand or two with no artificial means of support, shoot FIVE SHOTS at the set of 12 cards on this month's target - the 3 through Ace of Clubs.

    Scoring:

    Straight Flush = 100 Points
    5 Of a Kind = 95 Points
    4 of a Kind = 90 Points
    Full House = 85 Points
    Flush = 80 Points
    Straight = N/A
    3 of a kind = 70 Points
    2 Pair = 65 Points
    Pair = 60 Points
    Unmatched cards = Add up the card value (3-11 points per card)

    Unless they are all unmatched, extra cards do not count (i.e. - you can't get 4 of a kind and an Ace for 101 points).

    Better hands (i.e. a Royal Flush or 5 Aces) serve as tie-breakers.

    You will notice that the cards overlap. Also, some big bore pistols may cut across more than one card. I will make it shooter's choice to pick your 5 best cards to make up for last month's difficult target.

    STOCK CLASS - Standard pistols with barrels 6" or less
    IMPROVED - Pistols with significant improvements from out-of-the-box or pistols with barrels more than 6".
    SCOPED - Any scoped pistol
    NO OPEN CLASS this month.

    I will allow 3 entries per shooter in any class this month.

    Target available here.

    This month's target has no info on it, so please write in the following:

    P.S. Please no whining about big bores vs. small bores. Small bores should be easier to aim and big bores are cooler.:)

    Ummm, assuming you hit a card with each shot, you won't score less than 80 points, because since they're all clubs you'll get a flush automatically.

    You suppose you could make the target available somewhere else? I don't have a printer at home, and the site is blocked at work, where the printer is (not that I'm using my employer's computer & printer to print targets, of course :uhoh: ).

    I have no problem getting the little RPG Saddam, so if you could put it where that is, that'd work.

    What's 10 paces? 10 yards (my paces) or 10' (my wifes paces)???

    And do you measure from muzzle of gun or your feet???

    (this'll be my first mail in match, if you can't tell ;-)

    True, but you do have to hit all five.

    I think the lower scores are for those who do not hit the cards every time. "Pair" and "Unmatched cards" are for those that don't get all five on the target.

    I think this is taken into account for the scoring, but I could be wrong. That's why the straight is marked as "N/A" since you will automatically get a straight flush if you score a straight.

    Is this a rapid fire event? Timed? Or just count off ten yards and shoot at the deck?

    Braindead0 - 10 Paces = 10 yards. I just wanted to infuse a little cowboy poker jargon, pardner.

    Pytron -- Good call! If you hit 5 cards, you will get at least a flush, but you need to hit 5 cards with 5 shots - something I don't think I could do 12 times in a row. A straight would be a straight flush and get 100 points. To make it clear, one shot going through 2 cards cannot count both cards if you miss another shot, you choose the better card for your hand.

    El Rojo -- unless specified otherwise, all of these matches are non-timed at your own pace.

    Charleym3 - Try going to www.adobe.com and getting the newest version of Acrobat.

    I don't see how you can't just shoot at the middle of that target and not get your 5 hits. Well we needed this one after last month! I have three handguns, and I plan on submitting three targets. I think I will shoot one of them first for the easy 80 and then try to get a better hand with the other two for a better score.

    Good morning folks,

    This is my first time posting (and trying to shoot this target). Got any good tips for a new member?

    Yep Steve, I'm an instructor, but am new to this web site. I figure that I can hit the target (hopefully) but asking for a bit of advice never hurts.

    Besides, I'm hoping my back east Joisey pal might want to make a bit of a wager on this one. :neener:

    Got my targets printed. Got the instructions printed.
    Now before I can go and shoot this postal match, it will be my first you know, I need some help.
    I'm not a poker player. I have no idea which cards make a:

    Straight Flush = 100 Points
    5 Of a Kind = 95 Points
    4 of a Kind = 90 Points
    Full House = 85 Points
    Flush = 80 Points

    So as I read the instructions, it apears that besides hitting the cards we need to hit the appropriate cards to get the specified hand. Or, do I just shoot 5 holes in the same card for a 5 of, or 4 of a kind?

    My question is, what cards make the above hands?

    Now this isn't cheating, because I am at a great DIS-advantage to those who DO know how to play poker. :banghead:

    I'd love to join in on all the fun, but in this match to go and randomly shoot 5 rounds into the target seems like a waste of time and ammo to me.

    Thanks for the help.
    J

    Straight Flush = 5 cards in sequential order of the same suit. like 2-3-4-5-6 all spades

    4 of a Kind = pretty self-explanatory ;-)

    Full House = 3 of a kind + 2 of a kind (2 tens and 3 fours for example).

    Flush = 5 cards of the same suit. As all the cards on the target are the same suit, as long as you hit any card on all shots..you've got a flush.

    Now this looks like fun! Count me in for 2 targets; one in 9mm and the other in .22lr. Both of these will be stock class.

    This is the kind of stuff I've been trying to get my coworkers into since we shoot almost every weekend! :)

    Wait, are we allowed 1 entry in each class, or 3 entries in any combination of classes?

    Hey Kid I was wondering when your cute self was going to show up.

    Hmmmm .... a little wager, huh?
    First I have to make sure you understand the rules.

    1. YOUR target must be setup outdoors, on a windy day.

    2. Close your eyes and wrap a black cloth around your head covering both eyes, followed by 3 layers of duct tape.

    3. Spin around 3 times.

    4. Assume your shooting stance.

    5. Lift one foot.

    6. After you fall over, whatever position you end up in is the position you will shoot from

    Good luck.
    (I've seen Terry shoot, these ARE the rules, RIGHT guys?) :scrutiny:

    PS ... Only people from Brooklyn say "Joisey".

    We'll discuss the terms of the wager via e-mail :evil:

    Out here in BFE, Colorado, the wind is always blowing at gale force strength, especially at DragonMan's shooting range.

    Tell you what, Bob.. I'll shoot the target without my bifocals, with both eyes tied behind my back, holding the gun with my left hand, and stirring a bowl of Death by Chocolate cake mix in my right, all while doing the Hokey Pokey.
