Yes Captain sign me up. I think this will be fun. I will do both. 44 off hand and 44 from rest. When will targets be due and where do i send them. So this is group spread. Closest to center or just group size?

You are in. Smallest group size will determine the winner. We have not yet determined a date yet for sending the targets...will kind of depend on how many enter and if they have problems getting to the range to shoot due to weather, holiday conflicts or other stuff. (@+

And Happy Birthday, by the way! )l_

Count me in, just downloaded and printed the required target. Put me down for Off Hand and Rest , .44 Calibre. Will likely shoot this weekend as it's starting to get mighty brisk up here in the Great (Soon to be) White North.

How is the shooting going, gents? Anyone popped a cap on their targets yet? Also, anyone out there need random number(s) for their targets? I'd like to have all the shooting done by Dec 31st if possible.

Did some practicing yesterday (Manhattan .36). Didn't do very well. Grouping was within a 6" dia circle, high at one o'clock. Eye sight not hawk eye-ish.

Not yet. Having some health issues. Hopefully soon tho. I really need to pop some caps and smell some real powder smoke.
