Flyswatter v2.0 Mr. Completely e-postal match

How about a little nostalgia with what was possibly the most frustrating e-postal match we ever ran, "Flyswatter" ? This was our very first Mr. Completely e-postal match, back in July, 2005. I have updated the rules a bit and added more classes, but it's still just as hard as it was back in 2005! Don't be disappointed if you don't hit as many as you thought you could, as this one is a difficult challenge.

Below is the edited version of the original Mr. Completely e-postal match from 2005:



A portion of the actual target




I decided to start out the handgun e-Postal series on sort of a fun note, with a novelty target. The next e-Postal Handgun Match, however, will be far more conventional.

Target: Download it here:

http://www.targetz.com/fun01.htm It's target number 20015

This target will print out perfectly on an 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper. You may need Adobe Acrobat reader to view and print the target.

Distance: 25 feet or ten yards, depending on what your range will allow.

Firearm Type: Any handgun or rifle. See CLASSES below.

Shooting Position: Standing, un-supported.

Sights: Any type of sight.

Caliber: Any caliber.

Procedure: You get twenty shots per target. Shoot the match as many times as you like, then send in pics of your single best target in each class you enter.

Scoring: Hitting any part of the fly counts as a hit and counts as one point. Hitting the same fly twice only counts as one point. A perfect score would be one shot per fly for twenty points. Ties will be posted as ties.


CLASS ONE: Any rimfire handgun with no more than a 12" barrel, iron sights or un-magnified optics (like red dots sights).

CLASS TWO: Any rimfire handgun with no more than a 12" barrel, magnified optic sights (scopes).

CLASS THREE: Any centerfire (non-revolver) handgun with no more than a 12" barrel, iron sights
or un-magnified optics (like red dots sights).

CLASS FOUR: Any centerfire (non-revolver) handgun with no more than a 12" barrel, 
magnified optic sights (scopes).

CLASS FIVE: Any revolver with no more than a 12" barrel, iron sights
or un-magnified optics (like red dots sights).

CLASS SIX: Any revolver with no more than a 12" barrel, 
magnified optic sights (scopes).

CLASS SEVEN:
Any handgun with more than a 12" barrel, or any rifle, any sights, scopes, laser, whatever.
 

CLASS EIGHT: Anything interesting to shoot that doesn't fit into the above classes, go ahead and enter anyway. 


Multiple entries: You can enter more than once, in fact, it is encouraged. The only restriction is that you can only enter once for any given caliber of semi-auto, or any given caliber of revolver. Different calibers in the same gun count as one caliber. For example, .38SPL and .357MAG are considered as one, as would be .44SPL and .44MAG.

Prizes: Nope! Just bragging rights.

Submitting your entry: Take a digital photo of, (or scan) your target, and email the picture, your score, type of handgun used, type of sights, and caliber, to blog@whidbey.com. Be sure to include your email address, and what name or nickname you want used when we post the results.

All entries must be received by Midnight Monday, October 2nd. and results will be posted within seven days, or less.

If you have any questions, leave the question in the comments to this post, or send me an email, or both. Check every so often for updates and clarifications to the rules, if any.

Even though this is a novelty target, this is not all that easy. I can just about promise that you will score much lower than you were expecting. Send in your entries, even though you think your score is really low. There are a lot of flies, but they are small, and there is a lot of space between them. Don't get discouraged! Send 'em in!!!!!

Glad to see you're back!

For the record, this is one of my all time favorite targets!
