Anyone interested in some friendly "competition" target shooting?

Northeast shooters has a "darts game" starting up. Sound like fun?

The idea is to start with 1 and shoot numbers in sequence through 20, then the bullseye. You have to stop with the first miss.

Double and triple rings on the dartboard don't matter, just shoot each numbered section.

Hits on the line between numbers count as OK hits.

Shoot with anything you like at 50 yards. Obviously a scope or spotting scope will be needed to see the numbers.

Photo and post results. Anyone interested?

OOoops - The target photo is on my memory stick. I'll have to p[ost it tomorrow.


Found the link. I hope this works:

Odd, the link work the other time you posted it.

Sounds like fun to me! Are you printing this on an 8.5 x 11" sheet?

It works...you just have to click on either one of the:

* /. (common basename)
* /.. (common basename)

links.

Is this the dart board you want to use?

It wasn't so easy to get to from the link so I've attached it to the forum.

You know, the paper standard down under is bigger than the US 8.5" by 11" so Vince may have an unfair advantage here.

looks like I'll have to break-out my 10/22 and scope it so I can afford to take on this challenge.

Well, Vince, are you in? I got the scopes mounted on my .22LRs so I can give it a try. I'll spot you the paper size.

Just so we are all on the same page, powder burns are not common when shooting a .22 at a target that is 50 yards away!

I'm still in the prep mode. Got my target printed. The new Hawke 4-16x 42 Tactical Scope I ordered came in today. Thought I'd use it on my AR22LR before I transferred it to the AR-15. Will see if this gun it accurate enough to complete this challenge. Still don't know when I'll get to the range. My daughter flew in for the weekend from Boston and we have a friends wedding to go to.
