    If you print it without resizing it comes out about silver dollar size. At least it does on my machine. :) Go ahead and shoot the quarter, tat's what I did and I have had cataract surgery on both eyes. It'll put the challenge back into your shooting. :thumbsup:

    Got a whole week left to git 'er done. :thumbsup:

    And you can paint that quarter florescent orange if it'll help. :wink:

    The rules for this contest are easy 'cause there ain't hardly any rules. Purty much just shoot 3 shots offhand at 25 yards and add up the score.
    The quarter is really more of a suggestion than a rule. Center is still center no matter how big yer quarter is. :grin:
    You do hafta use a frontloader tho. :slap:

    The funny thing is, any kinda sights are legal, and everybody is shootin' regular old open sights. :hmm: (Except skunkskinner, his musta fell off 'cause he said he ain't got any. :haha: )

    Shot the trade gun yesterday. Figured at 25 yards I could probably hit the paper. Didn't want tg to be the only data point for trade gun as he would have skewed the results too much and caused unrealistic expectations.

    This contest is all over but the score tallyin' and I'll post 'em up later today. Gotta go to work now. :(

    There has been some interest in a re-do of this 3-shot contest so I will be running it again for September if anybody wants do-overs or if anybody didn't get in in time. Keep yer eye out for a new topic coming soon. :hatsoff:

    That's what you get for sending your shot in early, doesn't even get posted. Man, I didn't know it was THAT bad. :rotf: Maybe Jethro was just trying to save me some embarassment. :redface:

    :rotf: :rotf: Hell I can't remember. I should still have the target around here somewhere. I can guarantee it wasn't less than one inch for sure. I remember it was that third shot that screwed me up after I started thinking. :shake:

    Thanks ya'll...I owe it all to the members of this forum :hatsoff: when I got my rifle last fall I was lucky to hit a paper plate at 50 yrds with it. I've learned so much here. Oh by the way you have me hooked, I haven't even touched any of my other rifles since. Thank you.

    That's great to hear HFD60 and congrats from me as well! :hatsoff: I was in your similar situation last November. I had an antique .32 family heirloom but knew nothing about it. Thanks to Grey Whiskers patience and guidance, we got it dialed in. He got me hooked as well. Between him and this forum, I have learned volumes, but I also realize I haven't even scratched the surface. This past spring I purchased my GPR .54 that I used in the contest. I'm surprised how well I did. :shocked2: Now I can't wait for the next one! The only downside is that I felt a little bit guilty about outscoring Grey Whiskers. But I got over it real quick! :blah:
