Unofficial submission, I don't have the official target.
« on: May 15, 2022, 07:26:08 PM »
This is not an official submission.  I don't have any way of printing the official target. I was wondering if the picture taken with my phone through my range finder of the 100 yard distance from my patio would suffice.

If I had an official target and shot this group (3 of the 5 are within a 4" circle) would it be enough for me to obtain membership?

Looks to me that on the proper target, you would be able to qualify as a Member.... 

Nice job!....

Thanks Bob. I need to find someone who can print some targets for me.  And I need to use a more stable rest. LOL
My main purpose yesterday was to see if the RWS 460 .22 was up to the task.  I shot two targets, I only posted the one, the other was very similar but with only three within the 4" circle.

Show me your customer service.. Take a new gun off the shelf and have your tech verify that it passes all the quality checks then send it to me. No sir... I don't want a discount or a store credit or a partial refund... I want exactly what I paid for and exactly what you said you were selling me. If you can't do that then stay out of my mailbox with your spam mail.
That's part of the problem with retail these days.. We, the consumer settles for whatever shovel full of stuff they feed us.
Shame on us for that."

That's a good question. I think I might be able to adapt some of what I have for practice. I'll only need the official ones for submission.

I noticed there are 4 different NUAH targets.  Hmm?  Maybe a couple of each and then I could take them to have copies made.

Ok, shoot me an email and I'll get them in the mail.

Thanks David. Email sent.

I finish off that tin of pellets and opened a new one. Of course the first few of the new tin where scattered. After about 10 pellets the rifle settled down. I think this new tin shows promise.
