    Please don't shoot with a blindfold on LOL!!

    Take a regular sheet of copy paper Put no marks on it at all. Fire 5 shots as close to the middle as you can. Label it after you shoot with screen name etc and send me your target.

    I will measure the exact middle, (folding both lengthwise and across its width most likely). Your score will be the combined total of inches your shots are from the center. Lowest score wins. As always the following rules apply:

    fire 5 shots only, misses count!

    The shooting distance for this contest is 25 yards.

    No do-over’s.

    Only registered forum members may participate.

    Only traditional, open iron sighted muzzle loading firearms; peeps are allowed under the condition you mark your target so I know you used a peep. (Tracking it)(NO Cannons) . Percussion or flintlock ignition. Cap and Ball revolvers are OK.

    Single patched round ball only. No restrictions on caliber. (a patchless ball may be used if so desired)

    Shots will be taken off-hand at the stated distance. Standing or seated is allowed, elbows unsupported by anything other than the shooters torso. In the event that a member is not physically able to hold his rifle up unsupported, a "prop-rod" that is supported only by the shooters torso, no part of which prop-rod may touch the ground, may be used to hold up the fore-end of the rifle.

    Only original targets will be accepted. No copies, faxes, scans, etc.

    Mutilated targets, or targets with more than 5 holes will be disqualified.

    The center of the shot and the placement on the target will be determined by the judge.

    Judges decisions are final.

    Each contestant's score will be posted at the end of the contest.

    Your member screen name must be written on your targets.

    As stated above if you use peep sights that too must be marked on your target. (Pretty Please!)

    Mail your target postmarked by April 30th 2019 to:

    I often shoot at the center of the paper so it will be normal for me. There have been several targets I couldn't see. Actually, this is good practise for something like deer hunting. They usually don't have aiming points on the hide.

    Only one entry per person, that said if you want to use multiple guns I don't see why not, so long as the total shots fired equals 5. Just mark the target peep used for shot x where x is the shot number(s) you used it

    When I think about it, you are only lacking an aiming point for the first shot. Should get easier for shots two through five.
    Now I ain't so scared.

    What happens if your first shot is in the upper left hand corner?
