Well Guy's, welcome to the March Pistol Challenge! This is going to very similar to the Rim Fire Challenge, Just a friendly challenge where everyone from new shooters to the elite can participate. This challenge is designed to expand your knowledge of marksmanship, Learn a trick from others or give some tip's to those having trouble, and most of all to have fun shooting with friends from all over the country!
The rules of conduct of the HPFF apply to this challenge and this is only allowed out of the graciousness of the MODS hearts. If we violate the rules, it goes away. (See rules here: http://www.hipointfirearmsforums.com/Forum/index.php/board,48.0.html
Please Just Don't Violate The Rules.
Now with that said let's get to the real fun.
For this challenge you can use any caliber or type of pistol up to 500S&W but it must be a pistol. no carbines.
7 yards/ 21 feet. easy enough.
This months target: http://www.mytargets.com/Target30.pdf
The target attached to this post just needs to be printed full-size on 8.5x11 paper. You can submit as many targets as you want with the highest score being recorded.
This is a free hand /non-supported challenge. You get 12 shots per page, 3 shots per target.(there's 4 targets on one page)
The only restriction on ammo is no shot shells other than that use any type of ammo you wish.
This is going to be very simular to the Rim Fire Challenge. You gets 3 shots at each of the four targets on the paper. If the bullet touches the outer line and/or the outer ring the score is 8, if the bullet touches the second line and/or the second ring the score is 9, and if the bullet touches the inner ring or the bulls-eye the score is 10 for a top score of 30 for each target, and 120 points overall. The lines just need to be broken, not cleared.

If there is any confusion on how to enter a target, rules, or anything else. Feel free to send me a PM and I will try to get back to you as quickly as possible.
We are starting with any caliber for now and if we get a large number of people shooting one given caliber, then we will address that next month.
Since there is no way to ensure everyone plays fair we must rely on you to be fair and remember if you cheat you're only cheating yourself
. So guy's lets keep it clean and have fun.
Good luck to all and remember safety first.
