    Week 1: Slow Fire Marksmanship (ends 10-Oct-11 2359 EDT)

    Please read the rules before participating in this thread.

    Week 1 -- Slow Fire Marksmanship
    results may be posted until 11:59pm EDT on Monday 10-October-2011.

    Range: 25yd
    Target: NRA B8 replacement center (download pdf here, courtesy Tom Jones)
    Start position: Any
    Rounds fired: 10

    Fire ten rounds at the 8.5x11 B8 replacement center target (click link above to download the pdf file to print this target). There is no time limit.

    Add up the score for all ten shots. Keep in mind that the "7" ring is visible but not identified, and the four corners of the target are technically the "6" ring. For hits on the line between two scoring zones, use the higher scoring value only if the grease ring of the bullet hole cuts the line between the two zones. Tears and other marks that are greater than the bullet's diameter do not count for scoring. Shots that do not hit the sheet of paper score zero.

    The PDF version of the target referenced above is sized for U.S. Letter (8.5" x 11") paper. An A4 sized target can be found here: B-8 (A4).pdf

    The equivalent target for 50-ft be a NRA B-3 50-ft Timed and Rapid Fire target. Here is one I recreated from the official dimensions a few years ago:B-3.pdf

    For official purposes, I'd say that's not equivalent. It has more scoring zones (rounds that would miss at 25yd on the 8.5x11 will score as 6-zone hits on the 50ft target) and there is a real difference between shooting at 50ft and 25yd in general.

    We knew going into this that not everyone could do every drill every week. We picked this one to start hoping it would be as accessible as possible. Sorry.

    My score: 91-1X
    My mother called to tell me how disappointed she was, and she doesn't even shoot.

    I shot it twice with my Gen4 17 and scored a very humbling 69 & 64 :-( A couple of wild shots in each group but mainly hitting left.
