    I like it, practice starts tonight

    I adjusted my 753 from six o’clock hold for bullseye to dead on for this.  I shot 8/10 in chickens, 4/10 on turkeys – they are really little :) 3/5 on pigs and 4/5 on rams tonight.  It got late and I didn’t want to me in the shop all night.

    Thanks, this is fun.

    Way to spice it up, @shutik!  Once the stinkin' polar winds stop scouring Indiana I'll be all over this with my CO2.

    Yeah, those turkeys are small!  Best so far is 18. I find that it's much better when I'm not digesting. Shooting after eating has much more movement. Will shoot a few cards tonight and see what happens. 

    Keep it up guys, FT season is just around the corner.

    Do all 40 shots need to occur within a specific time frame?

    Let's just say that you have to shoot single card in one session. You can take as long per shot as you like, but can't stop session and resume later.

    When I started shooting off hand, I would rush the card. Especially after a miss/bad shot, I would load up and shoot right away. Now I give myself time between shots for the heart rate to come down. Definitely helps.

    Target stalk has a 10m air pistol league going now, but you have to shoot 60 pellets in 90 minutes.  I don’t ever shoot that many in one go, but I can do one card per day, easily.

    Typically for air rifle silhouette, you are given 2 1/2 minutes or 150 seconds to shoot 5 targets. 15 seconds to get ready and load your rifle before shooting your first shot.

    Hector Medina has a version of this same target on his website. His target has smaller rams by comparison.

    I don't think I'm doing 30 seconds per target. More like 45-50. Especially on shots 15 – 20. I know we're not keeping time for this postal match. Would be interesting to keep the time for a card or two though and see what effect it has on the difficulty factor.

    Finally got around to shooting my Avanti 753 with globe sight today.  First time shooting rifle offhand since 2013 back surgery.  Man was it heavy.  I have a 15 inch Thomas FT on the way though.  Hopefully it will be lighter.

    I'm going to be busy starting tonight for the next few days, so I'll post what I've got so far. Thought I could get a second 20, but kept coming up short. Enjoy the pursuit everyone!
