    First time trying this and I ran into a few challenges, notably my Crosman Challenger CH2009 with open sights. I use CO2 in the Challenger, and it must be too cold as it was throwing pellets everywhere. 

    I set it aside and used my BSA R10, which is zeroed for 25 yards, and I was shooting at about 13yards. I had to aim about a half inch high, and the R10 is very front heavy. My support arm got fatigued VERY quickly.

    Pellets used are JSB 10.3 GR.

    Oh well, had a good time and at least I got some practice in! 

    Looks like 323/400 for me :)

    Ric, Thank you for participation! Don't be discouraged, shoot more cards! The more you shoot the easier it becomes.

    I second Shutik's sentiment. Keep at it and you will certainly improve.

    Here's my entry. I shot 4 sets of cards but the first one was still the best. The added black dot was a big help.

    178 + 169 = 347

    Here's my 2, same as last time.  192 +193 = 385  

    Seems I'm stuck at about 188-193.  I did shoot one with my coat on just to see what I'd get, it was a 195.  

    I'm still having some trouble getting my targets to show up, but at least I can get a link.

    That target is hard to shoot with open sights, at least it is for someone almost 58.

    Thanks Chas, Adding the black dots to the targets did help considerably.

    Have you tried uploading the actual picture from your pc? You don't need to post it elsewhere and link it. They download directly to the server here. Use the icon to the right of the smiley face in the options bar above the text window.  Great shooting by the way.

    Hah, Greg, "stuck on 188-193". I love it!!  I would love to be stuck there…  

    I tried a card with my jacket on as well to see what the difference would be. It was only a 2 point difference to a card I shot before it without the jacket. I thought it would be more. The jacket is quite new though and I'm still getting used to it.
