. . .

To help explain his success and his amazing scores, Mr. Completely‘s site has a picture of his High Standard Supermatic Citation.

(MAJOR Creative Fauxtography Alert.)

Mr C's HS

Honorary Mention, Class X – Golf ball projectiles:

There was a tie between USCitizen and Kim du Toit! Both used a Wilson driver chambered in caliber 168 golf ball. Our scores of 108 represent the maximum score on both targets (2 over par for all holes). Alas, the targets emerged untouched by any of our well-aimed shots!

More scores from the Ladies Tees:

There were five other entries by guys using the ladies tees (5 yards) – I won’t name names, but … oh, sure I will:

In Class I

jimmyb shot a 35 (probably one-handed with one foot in the air while reading this blog with one eye);
Baboy shot a 50; and
USCitizen shot a 60.

In Class II

USCitizen shot a 73; and
Baboy shot a 99.

. . . . . . . .

In a special Reno Class added for the Gunblogger Rendezvous we shot 15 yard targets, supported on bench. The results:
In Class I (Rimfire)

USCitizen and Mr. Completely shared a tie with jimmyb‘s High Standard .22, both shooters scored a 59;
jimmyb, also shooting the High Standard, scored a 60.

(Note to self: Trigger work by the gunsmith = sweet.)

With jimmyb‘s Ruger Mark II:
USCitizen scored a 61;
Mr Completely scored a 70; and
jimmyb scored a 74.

Class II (centerfire pistol) had one entry in the Reno Class:

USCitizen scored an 82!

I did not realize it until the other day, but Mr. Completely says “no more e-Postal matches (are) planned for the year. (He will) probably start them back up in the Spring…”

Thanks to all, and special thanks to the Gunblogger Rendezvous attendees for participating in the Reno Shootout!! I hope you enjoyed the targets as much as I did!

. . .

‘Til next year, then for the ePostal matches, and thanks again to Mr Completely for letting me host this round.
