Pizza Party!!


The results of the ePostal Pizza contest are in over at Ninth Stage!
This was a pretty interesting shoot, and I ultimately shot it on the next to last day of the contest, although I had an earlier.

The reason it took me two tries to get this contest shot, is because the first time I tried to shoot it at my back-yard pistol range and was nearly kidnapped and devoured by a swarm of killer mutant mosquitos.
(We have had much rain, apparently.)

So I had to go to the pistol range and shoot it on one of the hottest days of the year, so far. No sissy air conditioning at our manly range!!
There was much sweat involved, but that makes one appreciate the results more!

The target pictured in this post is a target I shot with a Glock Model 19 at 5 yards, as nearly fast as I could pull the trigger; 10 shots in 4.53 seconds. (Click target for a better look.)

It was also done using the point shooting method, which is pretty much like it sounds; point and shoot. Don't use the sights, just muscle memory. And brute force against the muzzle flip.

The most interesting one I shot was the Kahr MK9 9mm. This is the comment I sent with the target:
Interestingly, on this target, the 9th shot knocked the tack out that was holding the target, but somehow (by total luck and spastic reflex), I managed to get the last shot on the paper,
although I don’t know which one it was…
Heh. Cool. Very, very lucky, but still cool!
There is that saying, "It is better to be lucky than to be good".

There is a brief description of the pizzas, followed by the caliber sorted scores.
Head on over to Ninth Stage to see the overall scores, and notes of interest too!
It's worth the trip.
Precision Pizza: Ten shots at ten yards. All shots fired standing unsupported though you can use two hands in any way you prefer, you can’t use a rest or artifiial support. No time limit.
Quick Pizza: Ten shots at seven yards. Each shot is fired separately starting from the “low ready” (hand or hands on the pistol, finger off trigger and pointing down and to the front at a 45 deg. angle) and is released as soon as you have a sight picture on the target.

Blazing Pizza: Ten shots at five yards. Shoot them all as fast as you can - point shooting - with your defensive pistol.

  • It's great to see enough people shooting this month. Everyone shot pretty well, too!
    With competition like this, I see I am going to have to practice more.
    Yay!!

    And congrats to Mr. C for shooting a perfect score with a JENNINGS!!!
    This feat elevates him to the level of total shooting badass!!
    (Like we already didn't know he was, anyway.)

    Also, a big thanks to Marc at Ninth Stage for doing a great job of hosting!
    Thanks, man. And nice shooting!!

    Anyhoo, yours truly is hosting the next contest for this month, and I should have it posted very soon.
    Stay tuned, and get ready.

    We need shooters. So lock and load!!
