Thanks, Tex. SA has got me shaded for the time being, but I've still got one left. I might have to lay off the coffee and shoot another one tomorrow

I'll be shooting tomorrow evening. Just an FYI, it may not come soon, it might come tomorrow, but lobster_roboto is working on a program where we can enter our scores and a link to a picture of the target and it will be like a leader board thing if I'm picturing this right. He's going to put it on his server and it should be pretty cool. It will probably solve our issue of having threads with shot up targets cluttered with all of our yacking.

I'll keep you guys posted. Thank him in advance, just another example of another person making this thing better.

Lobster is back? Welcome home good sire.

If anyone needs a target hosted I'd be happy to do it for you. I'll host if from my site.
PM me if you'd like my hosting services.

That's a great idea, I was trying to think of a better way of handling this too and lobster_roboto may have the answer. Thanks lobster_roboto.

Here's my best of the three.
8 x 10 = 80
2 x 8 = 16
Score 96-3x

The third x is just breaking the line, but it did break it and the guys at the range all agree, so it should still count.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I just got back from the indoor range and I'll get my pictures up in a bit, I need to eat something. Also, how are you guys getting these crispy clean holes in your paper? Maybe it's just the power of my .45 that's just shredding things up? It's not a BB gun ya know...

Hi JT,

I'm getting the crispy-clean holes by shooting wadcutters or semi-wadcutters, which were designed specifically to cut a clean, full-caliber hole in the paper- and hopefully the next-higher scoring ring. As it turns out, they are quite effective on live targets as well. That's what you call 'icing on the cake'.

Those old-time paper punchers, much like today's, were looking for any edge they could get.

Interesting, I guess I'll have to pick some up for these shoots, because it's a pain trying to figure out where the tears start and the bullet hole stops...
