No! This is not a Shotgun


Recommended Posts

Looks like all were inside the scoring rings.  Where’s the problem?

If that was someone’s chest he would have been dead!

I've seen several cop shows where the dead guy's chest showed a grouping like that, and they were all talking about what a nice tight group that was, and how obviously the shooter was an expert.

Had one a couple weeks ago that was worse!  Learned a lesson about crimping plated bullets a little too much and firing in a Glock.        GW

Based on the photo it looks like 17 1/2 inches.  About SASS distance at a lot of shoots.

 

When did they start moving the targets back out?

Well if you can shoot a group like that when someone is shooting at you I'd say that pretty darn good shooting.

Not one of my better days. Came out of my virtual M1Garand, shooting 150 grain copper jacket at 50 yards, off hand. 

It was my first dance with the little lady. 

 

But it did go PING!

All my firearms are virtual firearms, except the ones that went down with the boat.

What's a virtual Garand?  Were you playing some kind of video game?

A chain is a unit of measure equal to 66 feet.  Looks like the shots are inside 2% of a chain.

 

FWIW (probably not much)

80 chains = 1 mile

10 sq chains = 1 acre

A chain is about the length of a mobile home, so picturing mobile homes stretched end to end helps estimate the average of a field.

A cricket pitch is exactly one chain long.

 

Knowing how popular Cricket is in the USA I am sure you can picture it now:rolleyes:

 

In the game of cricket, the cricket pitch consists of the central strip of the cricket field between the wickets. It is 22 yd (20.12 m) long (1 chain) and 10 ft (3.05 m) wide.

I usually fire nice tight groups.
Went to a concealed carry match.
Addressed a bowling pin rack at less than fifteen feet.
I could not BUY a hit!
Next day went to the range.
Same size targets, same distance, same sidearm, same ammo, I was hitting the Ace of Spades every shot.

I concluded it was a mechanical issue.

Something to do with the loose nut attached to the grip!

BMC, never knew what hit him. That's what counts.
