    On a whim, I desided to challenge myself with the NRA pistol qualification.
    I did the 50 foot qualification using the B-2 slow fire targets. It calls for 10 shots into 6 targets at 50', with a minimum score of 40 per target. I had 16 B-2 targets, so I just posted targets, and shot until I ran out of targets. Out of the 16 I shot, I had to throw 5 of them out do to low scores...(one of which was a 39:rolleyes: ).....I had enough qualifying targets to achieve "Pro-Marksman", and I was one good target short for "Marksman".
    Next week I'll have a head start since the 5 remaining targets that I didn't need to score for Pro-Marksman can count toward the next grade of Marksman, I'll shoot for hitting that and Marksman 1st Class......hell, I may even go for Sharpshooter....:D

    Well I went for the big one and achieved it.....I'm now an NRA ranked Pistol Sharpshooter.
    Out of a pack of 20 targets, I only had to throw out 2, and the rest earned me the rank of "Marksman", "Marksman 1st Class", and "Sharpshooter", plus I have 2 targets already shot for "Sharpshooter Bar 1".

    Now it gets even more challenging since I have to shoot both slow fire, and rapid fire targets to achieve each of the 9 bars before I can take the ultimate challenge of Expert, and Distinguished Expert.

    For the most part, shooting paper targets can be boring, but challenging yourself like this sure has made it a lot of fun, and really improves your shooting.

    Nice going, Tony.

    Glad to hear that one living in the Democratic Peoples Republic of New Joisey not only likes to shoot, but is a sharpshootin'marksman to boot.
