Mr. Completely (Missed her, completely?) hosted a Blog-based shooting competition which ended today. Number 5 in a series; I think there is one every month. This month the target was called “Seein’ Stars”, and star shapes are a wickedly difficult piece of targetry. See his website/blog for results in the next 7 days or so.

There were four classes: short barrel pistol: rimfire and centerfire pistol; long-barrel pistol; and rifle, at distances from 25 to 50 feet.

Here’s what the targets (2 targets: 1 left, 1 right) looked like from 25 feet away. A standard 50-foot rifle target was centered below for warm-up shots.

Seein' Stars

Yikes! You can barely see the spots from here.

I braved the elements – winds gusting from 25 to 35 mph today and scored a 220 (out of a possible 640). Did I mention that stars are tough? Thanks to Mr. Completely for a great idea and a well-run shoot.

Always searching for more opportunities to be humbled, I have a friendly competition planned with Kim du Toit at an indoor range tomorrow!

P.S. to Mr. Completely: Thank you for the blogroll link to this humble site.


The scores are tallied and evidently my meager score of 220 was enough for 6th place! Yea!! (And yes, there were more than six entries.) Thanks again to the host.
