As I stated the other day I’m participating in the postal match put on by Analog Kid over at Random Nuclear Strikes. I didn’t even both to score the target. But here are the results of the first contest:
I was using a AR-15 carbine. The larger holes around the orange dots were from something else a few years ago. Just the smaller holes in the 8.5″ x 11″ paper are important. I got a few points but hardly enough to matter. Another couple additional data points–I started with an empty gun, loaded magazine on the table in front of me and from the time I moved to pick up the gun until the last shot was 55 seconds.
Pathetic. 10 shots from 50 yards, “rapid fire”, open sights, center-fire rifle, offhand. I have hit 18″ targets 7 times out of 10 at 200 yards offhand before (“infinite time between shots). This is terrible performance. I need to practice more.
