Can I upgrade myself to Master?
« on: April 18, 2017, 09:13:30 PM »
I was shooting for score for the 100yd match http://www.gatewaytoairguns.org/GTA/index.php?topic=122595.60;topicseen and didn't realize until I got home and measured the group that my .25 target was under an inch CTC. I have a picture of the range and a witness but didn't take a pic of the air rifle I used. Lloyd can verify that it was there. I did shoot this group right after he left though.

I think I'm confused. One the unofficial 100 yard match we were going to score down but on the NUAH we score up.....
Help me understand.

Dave.... for the unofficial match, yes we score down to try to equalize the different calibers since everyone is using the same target.
For the NUAH Club divisions you are only shooting for groups and not score.
You can use the same target for both, just looking at them differently.
Hope that explains it.

I was there with Marty that day at the range and he was seriously getting in the groove.  He's also a good coach and a good PR man for airguns.  Some of the powder burner folks there that day were quite impressed with his 100 yard shooting.  Just the fact that he was shooting 100 yards surprised some.  Even if he didn't make any airgun converts, he certainly got them to look at airguns more seriously.
