Just before we kick off the online competition, I would like to get a rough idea of how many want to participate.

In order to keep things on equal footing for all, everybody will submit their entry using the same target. The competition target will be announced in a separate post. Also the pistol or revolver will not be allowed to have laser sights, scopes etc. Simply put, a basic open site. Along with submitting a copy of your target for the competition, you will be required to submit a photo of your weapon.

We will setup a separate section for your submissions. Would you prefer this section be configured for members only or would like the world to see?

I'm in.

I vote for Members Only Lounge. However, I'll go with the majority vote.

I can put a link in the regular forum going to the Members Only Lounge thread. People will simply have to login to see the results. That's not a problem.

Rick, please enter your vote in the poll. Easier to keep track of that way.

I wonder where Charlie and David are hiding. I am guessing they are scoping out the competition. Would like to start this competition with a minimum of 10 shipmates.

Don't forget just because you don't own a weapon, many local ranges will rent weapons you can both practice and compete with.

 Everything sounds good to me. Yep, people can rent the pistols needed at gun ranges. I will have to rent one for the .45 challenge.

Hey Rick,

One last question as I finalize things. Are we going to have our wives compete with us?

You guys chime in on the wives competing.

Good question. I suggest we go through the motions here and see what works, and what does not work. Then we fix the things that do not work. Then we see if we have 10 or more gals interested in competing across the country. Then we decide.

It will be interesting to see how many guy participants we get.

By the way, did you get the Tarawa ball cap patches for the Top Gun competition prizes I sent you? I am still waiting on the silver, shiny thread patches to arrive. Roy is going to get the first one to compare it with his original patch.

I did get the patches. Am going to work on mounting in the next couple of days.


OK guys stay tuned for the initial rules and first round of practice competition. We will be attempting to keep cost to a minimum.
