I thought I would get out today, but far too windy and tomorrow is bad too.

I did go out earlier in the month and posted a few good cards. Card # 5 is my submission for the final match of the year.  I really was trying hard the last two months for a 4X card, and it just wouldn't come for me. 

Hoping some others will get a shot tomorrow or today to get their cards submitted.

Shooting Date: 11/10/21
Shooter: Tom Boylan
Distance: Outdoor range; 100 yards lazer'd
Gun: RAW HM1000X .22 HP
Optics: Athlon Midas Tac; 6X24X50MM
Ammo: JSB 25g RDs
Wind: 0-1 mph
Group:50/50; 2X; 15/16" via ruler
Position: Bench Rest seated; Rear Bag and Accu-Tac Bipod

In re-reviewing my card, I zoomed in and I think I made a measurement mistake.  It looks like an even inch for CTC ruler measurement. 

Kevin / Bob - you guys call it, thanks!

Great shooting 2toes!!!!
Love seeing those targets and hearing the stories. I have been on this ship since late Sept and am ready to get home to show off some targets of my own. Only a month or so to go.

Thanks Carl. 

Look forward to seeing your cards in 2022.

I have a Diana 350 N-TEC in .22 caliber.  Love that gun. Q. Do you shoot it for Benchrest at 50-100 yards?  If so, how does it group?
I never shot mine past 40 yards, because I used it for indoor 25 yard range targets, backyard squirrels and plinking.

I'm afraid that I'm not quite sure what you mean by benchrest, is that another competition?...
When I'm shooting for best accuracy; I use sticks, while seated-I rest my elbows on my knees, and use the web of my off-hand to pull the gun into my shoulder with the trigger guard... Haven't shot at 50 much (the one time that I remember, I was putting most shots in a 1" group?), I tend to go from 30 straight to 100-the very best that I've ever shot was not too long ago on a non-standard target-the 5-shot group came in at 1.55"  8)
Been working on repeating that with a regulation target, but then had scope trouble that I'm still getting fixed  :P
It did take multiple tries though-I wait until days where there is little to no wind; and it usually takes two or three targets to 'warm up', get my holdover perfect; and get settled in with my sticks and everything positioned just so... Then I usually shoot three or so more targets, with one being the best for the day, usually at least a qualifying NUAH member target, with the other two being at least close. Then some days when I'm really on my game I get them all to be qualifiers, with one standing out-basically what I'm getting at is while I've pulled off some really good groups, it takes a few tries to get there-I'm just not that consistent (yet)...
