    Hey Indian Outlaw

    Is the stock hammer/trigger and nipples weak or is it just a look thing?

    kbbailey - Ouch! You're right - I did say white paper. I really don't care what color the paper is, only that it be 8 1/2" x ll". My bad, sorry.

    'sall right mykeal,
    I assumed the yellow, lined paper would be ok...but a rule is a rule. The upside is I get to shoot some more. Maybe better.

    OK Mykeal,

    My targets are in the hands of the USPS now, and headed your way!

    I will say I was a little disappointed with my shooting, but I learned a little about my 5 1/2" Pietta.....It shoots left of POA. Mine won't be the best targets you score, but they are honest.

    If there is a next time...I may use my 8" Remington and maybe post a better score.

    Since you have perambulated the desert, a little horizontal snow should present no problem.

    There already is - some folks can't get to the range in April, so I've added a May match. Closes the day after Memorial Day. If you send a second target in April it will automatically get entered in the May contest. Get out there and practice and do better!

    I wanted more durable nipples on this particular gun. And since stainless nipples might be harder than the stock ones, I figured I should harden the hammer to reduce the chance of it being deformed. Turnbull's shop is less than 30 miles from me, and so it's no big deal to drive down there.

    Yes sir, I will definitely do that. William Jennings is doing them.

    I don't recall ever roaming the desert, however, I was in the Black Hills a couple years ago...on my way to the Yellowstone country.

    The weather finally broke, had to shoot. I know that there is not point in entering the postal match, too many of you guys would KMB. I did break out a can of Swiss 3f. Never shot it in the Navy before. I think it looks promising. Not the best target of the day, but not the worst either.

    Looks pretty good to me. You should be competitive. What have you got to lose?

    You don't have to clean it.
    Send it to me, and leave the cleaning in my hands.
    Of course, you might not get it back....:D

    The generosity of your magnanimous offer is underwhelming. :)

    No.

    I guess I'm just not that into competition anymore. But who knows, maybe:)

    My targets are in the mail, Mykeal, and unless Stevie Wonder decides to enter the competition, I think I've got last place all sewn up.

    We'll make a mail run Tuesday morning and then break out the scoring templates.

    First targets have arrived.

    You guys aren't going to make this easy, are you?

    Just for general information, apropos of of nothing in particular, I can score cloverleafs - they do not constitute a 'mutilated' target.

    OK, OK...just playing it safe.
    I need better backing next time. Thin cardboard stapled to a pallet allowed my target to get ripped up, so I sent a spare.(You must admit mykeal, that third hole was tough to see)

    Besides....I'd hate to get outshot by Mr. Wonder.
