Mr. Completely's October e-Postal Scores


Pattie Ann's Final Mr. Completely e-Postal Target

The scores are in for October and we have them tabulated.  If you have targets that you have not sent, get them in and we will add them to the table.  This was a fairly tough target for pistol.  Pattie, of course would not score at all shooting offhand, so she uses a rest from her shooting bench.  When we told her we were going behind the barn to shoot the Postal she said, "Well, bring my gun!"

Susan was disappointed to shoot a 4 with her 22/45 Lite, but I told her that was a good score, and it is.  Those nuts are small for shooting offhand.  She has a new GP 100 revolver and she shot a score of 3 with the iron sights on that gun, and she is not accustomed to iron sights.  I shot one of the 10/22's from the bench with a hasty sling.  I hurried on the first shot and did not check my NPOA.  I blew that shot, and checked NPOA for the rest and made every one.  I do not understand why so many people change the barrel out on 10/22's, they all seem to shoot well for me.

This year has shown a serious drop in participation with Mr. Completely's e-Postal match.  Merle, Billll, Susan, her Mother, and I have been the only regulars, so the October target is the final one.  I have enjoyed running this contest for Mr. C, but I think we would be beating a dead horse if we go on.  Many Thanks to all who have entered over the years, and to the bloggers who have helped host this monthly contest.  Extra-Special Thanks to Mike Gallion, aka Mr. Completely for allowing me to take over his contest when he was ready for a break. Susan and I, and the other blog hosts have had a great time organizing and thinking up targets for all of you.

I'm saddened to see this happen, but it's not unexpected the way participation has been falling off.

I don't know why people seem to have lost interest, whether it is financial, life taking up too much time, or perhaps even reluctance to be identified as a gun owner in these politically charged times. Sadly, I can think of half a dozen other postal matches that have folded up over the last few years, so .....

Anyhow, I want to say "THANKS" for holding on as long as you did - and putting up a good challenge every month.
