Hi, same problem.  I should have taken the baby targets to the range Saturday.  I shot a 443 out of 500 with the Schofield in a revolver match, but 8 yards is awful dang close.  Did anybody shoot pistol or if I manage to do that will I win with 4 more or less blank targets?

Later

No need to wait that long.  We're going to try to do this every month, weather permitting.  Some of those in warmer climes may be able to shoot when some of us are digging out of a snow drift...............

Niederlander, sound like something that I?d try but 8 and 13.5 yards? Is this a typo? Seems terribly close to me. Is there a commercial target that would suffice as I don?t have a printer? Now that my knee replacement is on the mend maybe I can actually get into a kneeling or prone position.

The distance is correct. It's that close because it's a really reduced range target. So, no there aren't any commercially available replacement targets. Office Depot (or places like that) should be able to print for you and some libraries have printers you can use as well.

When originally set up, part of the intent was that folks who didn't have access to a 200 yard range could still participate. At 13.5 yards most non-scoped rifles are "on" when they're zeroed for 100 yards
