Still getting scores worse than hand held!

Think I have decided on the gun, though.
I tried the car-wash sponge on top of a pistol rest today. Lightly resting the pistol grip on the sponge, the results were a huge improvement over just resting on the hard rubber with a springer. Was so happy with the improvement..I submitted it as this month's entry.

3 scores received to date, with only one week left to go.

An ideal excuse, over the Christmas period, to disappear into the garage for a while!

Last couple of days before the first round ends.

Not been the most inspiring of weather I know.

Okeydokey - shot my Round 1 targets this afternoon. Usual MO, two sheets for practice then score the third. Not too bad (for me) and best of the day to boot.

Looking forward to the results,

Happy New Year one and all.

Wow.

Very happy with third (so Far).

Well done to Ian for a fantastic score.

Great comp, I never thought my Scorpion would be accurate enough for targets.

Huge thanks to Phil for all the hard work.

Did anybody make use of the 177 bull bonus scoring?

To be honest, I can't remember without finding my target.

Once I get used to the comp I am sure more will.

I'll be sticking with my 6G as it has great potential.

I was quite pleased with the number of entrants, especially for such a new forum.

I also like how this comp caters for all abilities and disabilities, making it a competition for all.

I was also pleased I did the scoring spreadsheet, the screen captures, ftp uploading, and final posting all from my Nexus 7 tablet. Saves a lot of time over get the laptop out.

Kind regards,
