Mr. Completely Now Sponsored By High Standard Firearms

As many of you know, I have been competing with High Standard pistols for many years, and with good results. High Standard has now decided to help out a few shooters using their products, and I get to be one of them! My new Techwearusa jerseys have now arrived, and I am really happy with how great they look.

Even neater than the cool jerseys is the fact that I will be getting one of the new all stainless steel High Standard pistols with which to compete. I can hardly wait to get my hands on it!

High Standard pistols have always been very good, but over the last fifty years or so the company have been in and out of financial trouble, and at times I suspect that quality control may have suffered a bit. Low quality after market magazines that would never feed reliably didn't help. The basic design, however, is outstanding, and the triggers are second to none. High Standard barrels are also extremely accurate.

Now that High Standards are being manufactured in Texas on modern CNC machines, the fit and quality is the best ever.

I consider it an honor to be shooting for such a high quality company with such a fine product!

Free Ammo at The Gun Blogger Rendezvous?

A hypothetical question:

If registration for the Gun Blogger Rendezvous costs $35, and if you are a blogger you get $150 worth of free ammo delivered to Reno for your use in the shooting activities at the Rendezvous, would the free ammo make you more likely to attend?

Just askin.........

"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.

Closing Date for e-Postal Match Extended

There aren't too many entries in for the March e-Postal match "Scatter Gun" , so I am going to hold it open until next Monday night so more of you can get a chance to shoot some entries. Take some targets out to the range and shoot 'em up this weekend!

Please note that this match is MUCH harder than it looks, so don't be discouraged by what you think is a very low score. Shoot the match as many times as you like, then send in your best targets. Only one entry per gun/class, though!!
