Hey Guys,
Here's my entry for the novice class. Shooting at an A4 sheet of paper from 33ft (10 meters) with single TBG 25/20mm taper with 9.5mm steel on one of the nicest possible days ever.

Score: 5 pts (5 hits).

To be as fair as possible, I just shot these shots cold - the A4 sheet was pretty easy to hit, but it's going to get tougher when we start folding it, I'm certain of that!
If I make it through to round 3, I'll be shooting in the Vietnamese countryside, so that'll be a VAST change of scenery from my messy West Australian backyard! haha

Anyway, here's the video.

Good shooting ... looks like the pattern from a full auto burst .... gradually creeping up ...

Cheers .... Charles

Thanks Charles - truth is the first shot landed high, 2nd low, then it crept to the centreish.

Looks like I better get to practicing to make it into the second round with ya.
I love to compete at anything but shooting and making holes is an all time favorite.

We had our NY Metro shoot in Long Island today (Saturday May19th). We made copies of the Slingshot Forum Target and 3 of us who hadn't shot the target yet gave it a go. The video is below and the results were: Peresh-Pro Division-85 points
Flatband-Pro Division-70 points
CVArcher-Pro Division-60 points. Lot of fun!

That's some good stuff,,, The next time I am in country, I definitely would love to swing up there one saturday and shoot with you guys!



Well, with out further doo :P here is my entry....and obviously this was a single take job :)... I added some other stuff of interest (to me at least) so it isn't just a shooting video...

note you can skip straight to the shooting by clicking the lower right portion of the vid.. and a bit back from that point will show my distance verification



I am running under the "Expert" class and though I may not necessarily be an expert, I would like to think I am not a beginner :D




Thanks

I've shot at the paper a few times. 80 was my best. I am going to follow the rules as they are and try to post one for 100 before the deadline.

Greg, great vid and good group, move that to the right just a tad and you would be right up there. I shot four vids to get to 100 points, first was a 95. Shot with the gang yesterday on LI and it does make a difference when the camera is on, we all shot good until it was time to record and then the yipstayips took over. Anyway, good shooting, enjoyed the tape.

I've got a bad case of the "yipstayyips" on right now!
Basically taking a break from any kind of real target shooting.

Here is some open class fun.

You're the man, Beanflip! I'll give you a pass on the verification because of your history and because you're the first open class entry (it's like how a teacher grades you easier if you volunteer to go first) but you need to verify it on the paper targets for sure.
Also bring back the 'stache!

good shooting beanflip, I can just see me when I can shoot like that..I'll need a bigger hat or bigger head.
I have made me another natural catty from a fallen poplar and as soon as I sand the blood off of it and finish it up and get her banded, I'm goin for my 5 in the paper agani.
Seems it's not just power tools I have to be extra saftey minded about. Did anyone know how easy is it is to cut into a digit with a coping saw?.
whoopsie!!

That is great that she did the video entry. Maybe it is a mixed up memory but I thought the Mrs didn't have anything/interest to do with slingshots.

One of my favorite entries because the Mrs joined you.
