    Grump,
    I shot two targets this month with my G19 and my 1911. Neither were worth posting. Out of 10 rounds with both I only hit 10 times. I was quite disappointed. I am not that good with hand guns as it is, but that was just discouraging.

    At least your shooting, its practice time with the gun even if you are unhappy with your targets. Does that mean you won't play if I post a 100 yard challenge match? I'm thinking of doing that with any handgun, any caliber, any shooting position but not till next spring. I'm having enough problems trying to get all these 2 yard shooters to shoot at 15 yards.

    Not bad you are definitely dialed in. Thank you for posting this month.

    October Carry Gun Challenge

    Two weeks of bad back, bad weather and a few days of flu but yesterday was great and everything came together for a good days worth of shooting.

    Draw and shoot 5 rounds, reload and did it again.

    Single Six shooting Thunderbolt ammo, trying to get rid of it, shoots lousy in every gun I have except this one and my Savage single shot bolt action.


    Dan Wesson .357 mag shooting 130 gr 38 spcl target ammo


    Super Blackhawk 44 mag shooting 180 gr power points


    I'm no Quick Draw McGraw but I won't have to shoot something twice very often.

    Hey Deth502, did you ever do the 7 yard test on your .40 S&W? I would like to say going back and reading my original post it came off as harsh, my apologies for that. I was thinking in a practical sense that if a person is having a hard time hitting an 8.5X11" piece of paper, is it a good idea to cary a weapon that one can't shoot more reliably than that? Thinking of how this would be a defenive use of a handgun in public and there could be other people around. I was thinking nobody wants to miss the bad guy and hit an innocent bystander with a stray shot. This is how I approach my selection of CCW handguns.

    As a personal example, I had a snubbie .375 magnum revolver. With full power 158 gr. magnum loads that I can shoot perfectly well in my 4" and 6" revolvers I was all over the place with it, even at 7 yards. It was so bad due to the recoil, I could not reliably count on hitting a torso sized target. I wouldn't feel comfortable shooting it more than an arms length from the intended target. With +P .38 spl. loads it was managable but not as powerful as my Glock 19 with +P ammo and a lot less rounds.

    I need to get in on this challenge, maybe next month. I'm trying to get my wife to come out and use her Glock to get some practice in, would be a good time to do a set of targets for OG's challenge.

    Man, how did I miss this challenge?

    Anyway, I want in.
    I shot my Ruger P89 w/Winchester 115 gr. HP.
    My carry holster is the Fobus paddle.

    I shot my target this morning @ 15 yds. The 1st 3 were to the left, and I'm contributing that to a bad trigger pull.
    The next 7 were pretty much where I wanted them.

    Thanks for posting, I had given up this thread considering the lack of response. Now I have to get out my hand guns when I come in from deer hunting tomorrow and shoot my November targets. Lately I have been just shooting my magnum long guns but I'm always up for a challenge.

    Your challenge is better than past contests.
    The mailing of targets to get scored was a pain.
    This challenge is a lot better.

    I'm in for more monthly shooting.

    I guess it depends on the size of the targets. I might consider shooting a pistol at 100 yards if the target were, say, the size of a large house. Actually, I may shoot at it, but as I have demonstrated, my skill with a handgun is not great, though I love to shoot them. I need to spend some time with someone who knows how to shoot a handgun to help me out. I shoot rifles and shotguns acceptibly, I need to figure out this handgun thing.

    Just got back from sea last night. I have duty this weekend so I will try to get out next weekend. I would like to use my new CZ82 for this and see how I do.

    Maybe I will even get my daughter to give it a shot. She shoots my CZ fairly well, especially for what little experience she has with handguns.

    I like that weapon. Is it a .22 conversion or is it a .22 pistol?

    Grump, went out today and when I opened the folder with my targets I found the ones that I had not posted in September. Against my better judgement, here they are.

    1911 Springfield .45 ACP


    Glock 19 9mm

    Here are my submission for this month. Better than last time I was able to shoot, but not great. I do have an excuse this time. The range has one of those cable set ups to move the target out onto the range. My lane must have been right in line with the vent ducting as the targets were swinging. At 15 yards they didn't swing too bad, but they were definately not stationary. So much for excuses, here are the targets.

    1911 Springfield .45 ACP


    Glock 19 9mm

    See, all you needed was a little practice. Looks like you prefer your Glock to the 45. Now I'm feeling all guilty and have to get out there to shoot since I missed last month.

    Considering the lack of response this will be the last month I do this 15 yard carry gun challenge and I am open for suggestions for course and targets starting January. We need a way to get people out there shooting and I tried to make it easy by making it any gun you carry in a holster but

    I wish I'd seen this thread earlier. I'm in for December.
    I'm in for anything 50 yds or less. My back yard is about that wide.

    I have been wanting to do a 50 yard .22 rifle with open sights. I keep meaning to take my rifle to the range with me, shoot 10 rounds and then post the target and see how many others will do the same.

    So far we have 50 yards, 22 rifle and open sights, anything else? If not I will make it happen in January with a standard NRA 50 yard bullseye target.

    That was my thinking as well. That was the targets are easily accessible, even if you forget to bring them. Almost every range will have some for sale.

    Thanks for taking this on. It was not my intention, just something I have been thinking about doing. But you will probably get past the thinking stage well before I do which will at least get me out shooting.

    I know. I really like my 1911 but if I don't start improving soon I will probaby either sell or trade for another 9mm. It does me know good to have a pistol that I can not reliably hit the target with.
