We have the results for our June E-Postal Match, Silhuetas MetÃ¡licas.Â Let me start off by apologizing to everyone for the extreme difficulty of this match!Â I scored what I typically score during my IHMSA matches, which is about half the animals, so it was a good approximation of the sport to some degree.Â Despite its difficulty, we have some shooters who would make pretty good silhouette shooters if they tried out an IHMSA match.
Class 1 – Rimfire, Iron Sights
1 Shot at 11 yards
2 An apt demonstration that Saturday Night Specials do have a sporting use, especially if you don’t mind running up really close to the target to “pop a cap” in the ass of the animal, which is about the only way you’ll increase the odds of hitting it. Still, I’d take a 3 shooting a SNS at 10 yards at those little things!
Class 2 – Rimfire with Optics
1Shot at 7 yards.Â Because Yuri shot at 7 yards, I would consdier him to be tied for first with Conservative UAW Guy
Class 3 – Centerfire Iron
|S&W Model 39 (.38 Special)
|Enfield No. 2

Class 4 – Centerfire with Optics

Class 5 – Rimfire Rifle, Iron Sights
|Marlin 39 Century Ltd.

|Remington 512 (4x Scope)
Bonus Class – Masochist
|High Standard Supermatic Citation
Thanks to all who shot in this month’s match. I wish I could have shot in more classes, but time was limited because of Bitter’s moving in this month, and also, once I got to the range, I realized I had left the bolt to my rifle at home! Otherwise I would have shot Rimfire Rifle, Iron Sights with all you guys. Sailorcurt is hosting the next match. Good luck to all!
