    7 yard challenge

    OK, over at Glock talk one of the guys started a challenge. He had it broke down into sub groups and at first I thought it a waste of time and ammo. Actually I think its a good test of the basics as it has been a long time since I tried to shoot tiny groups. Post a pic with your 20 round 7 yard, unsupported group. No time limit, include in the pic your gun and a caliper/ruler measurement of the group. I think it would be a fun exercise to use carry guns, since we are a SD forum. It must be a centerfire, no rimfires.

    Just to clarify, if using a revolver, DA or SA?
    And if using a 1911, one hand behind your back?
    If you are going to ask for help, be prepared to receive it.

    Hey,
    I'm volunteering to measure the result.
    I'm a precision machinist/gauge-maker.
    I made gauges for the Army,keeping tolerances within 17 millionths of an inch.
    Go ahead,I'm watching, no cheating, you hear?
    Hmmm...spelled wrong gauge....

    Actually it's probably better if some missed.
    Just say there are twenty there.

    With double the rounds. Serious concentration on both our parts. Good to show how far one has come with the skills being taught on accuracy...
