ePostal Rifle Match for April 2006 - "Head-Shot"
Brian from My1911.com is this month's host for the e-Postal Rifle match. Brian has set up a scenario requiring some good shooting, and has a target to test your rifle skills. Not only is the target challenging, but he's a pretty good writer, too!
Below is his announcement and rules for the match. Here's his full post on the match, and where to ask any questions you may have.
Here's a mirror of his post:
Welcome to the April ePostal Rifle match. Thanks to Mr. Completely for giving me the oppourtunity to host this months match.
The scenario is this:
You're tucked away in bed with your wife, snoring the night away. The kids are tucked away in their rooms. Slam! You're jolted out of dreams of the next pin shoot by something very heavy shattering the front door. It takes every effort to pull yourself out of the deep pit of sleep. Every movement takes a conscious thought as you roll off the bed and reach for your house gun. A shriek from your daughter's room pierces the night, shooting a gallon of adrenaline straight into your heart. In an instant your house gun is in hand and you are head for the hallway.
Your SureFire lights the way and reveals a scene from your worst nightmare -- your daughter is being dragged out the front door. The attacker pauses in the doorway and shoots you a leering grin as your daughter cowers in his arms.
You've got a split second to take your shot. The distance is about 7 yards and you're precious daughter is blocking a body shot so its going to have to be his head. A twitch in the wrong direction and the unthinkable will happen.
The targets are 2 copies of the standard Midway pistol target. Cut away a quarter of the the white from one of them and staple or tape the two circles diagonally from each other with one to the lower right of the other. The upper left is the goon's head, the lower right is your daughter's.
Scoring is +10 for the black, +5 for the rings away from the hostage, -100 for any shots to the lower right area. Start with your favorite house gun unloaded. Then quickly load and fire as many rounds as you are comfortable with. Categories will be broken down by sighting system, not caliber. You can enter as many times as you want.
Good luck! I hope to shoot it myself this weekend. Results are due by the end of April, email scores and/or pictures to my1911 * gmail.com
