    25/25 Pistol Silhouette Match, 25 yards, 25 targets, 30 rounds, and 10 minutes. One's score is the number of steel critters left standing and the low score wins. Been shooting it since 2007 and no one has cleaned the rack yet. Three classes: open sighted pistol, open sighted revolver, and finally scoped handgun (any action style).

    You're welcome and the chickens are small - bout the size of a half dollar. Last weekend, I had my best outing in some time in the open sighted pistol class while shooting my S&W Model 41. I only left three little chickens standing. Now, why can't I do that every month? :dontknow:

    That looks like a blast! I've been looking to get some different kind of target (paper is getting a bit boring for me), but I don't know that I would be able to go that extensive... yet! :D

    The guys that made our last NRA size set (pictured above) also make some spinners that you could start with. Check em out:

    1/5th scale

    We also shoot this match from 50 yards with .22 sporters - 50/25 Sporter. As a matter of fact, we combine all of our monthly .22 sporter matches in one long day's pentathlon on the last weekend in October each year. Here is a fun slide show of last years Sporter Master event put together by Tony Gilmore:
