Alright shipmates, get your targets, get some practice at your local range the opening day of our first match is just days away.

The targets chosen for our online competition can either be purchased at your local Walmart for less than $3.00 or online for a bit more. Here is the link that shows you the target.

How many of you are willing/want to compete in our matches?

I'm in, but give us some time to get the target, if we need to order it online. Remember, we are trying to figure the process out.

If we gave you time to get your targets, Rick, the rest of us won't stand a chance.

I don't want to be in last place! That is what I will be "shooting" for!

Keith, should be have some goofy oath everyone will have to say stating they will follow the guidelines and not fudge on the contest? Or should we just say on your honor? I trust the guys and gals. This could be a lot of fun doing it four times a year. I like your suggestion on that!

By the way, I just ordered my targets online about five minutes ago. I think there are 13 targets (baker's dozen) in a pack.

Have we decided on a distance, or time, number of rounds?

Initially we will shoot 10 rounds for score. The distances will vary from match to match. Since some people might be competing with revolvers, it might be difficult to do a rapid fire sequence. We will, however, find ways to shift things around.

Let's see how fast I get my targets. I ordered them online yesterday, Sunday. Today is Monday, the start of the work week. They should have my order processed, packaged, and shipped out today. I did standard shipping, so I'm not sure when I'll get it.

I got my targets yesterday, Saturday. That means it took a week to get them. That's not bad.

It looks more like a brown with the red bullseye.
