"e-Postal Match "Scattergun" Results

Note: I missed entering one email's scores, but this time I've got everything in there, I think!

As just about every e-Postal match turns out, this one was way harder than it looks, since you could actually score negative scores by hitting a line. Kind of like hunting. You want either a well placed shot for a clean kill, or you would rather miss completely. This match punished you for only wounding a circle, and not getting a clean kill!

According to Billl,  this target is "One of the evilest pieces of  paper I've seen that didn't have a lawyers signature on the bottom of it. "  !!

To be fair, most matches with scoring for accuracy start with a score of zero, and each good hit increases your score from there. In this match, the worst score you could get is minus 140, so even a bit below zero isn't too bad at all.

Billl 1 Ruger Mk. I .22LR 25
Mike B 1 S&W 617 .22LR 25
True Blue Sam 1 Ruger MK. III .22LR 15
Pat B 1 S&W 617 .22LR 10
Mr. Completely 2 High Standard .22LR 90
True Blue Sam 2 Ruger 22/45 .22LR 35
Mrs True Blue Sam 2 Ruger 22/45 .22LR -15
Pattie Ann 2 Ruger 22/45 .22LR -20
Pat B 5 Colt Det. Spl .38SPL 10
Billl 5 Rossi 971 .357Mag 10
Billl 7 Marlin 795 Rifle/scope .22LR 60

Thanks to all for braving the sometimes crummy weather and getting out to the range to shoot the match.

This match forced you to use strategy, and the leftover targets are great sighters for checking scopes!
