    G20 loads are Blue Dot. So both are flame throwing monster rounds! :supergrin:

    Holy smokes you can shoot! My 50 yard shots spread across the entire plate :)

    You might be the best shooter I've ever met (if I were to ever actually meet you). Seriously.

    I dare say you might be able to stay on those targets reliably at 100 yards. I've heard of it, but never seen anyone shoot like that with regular handguns. Inspires me to do more 50 yard work, to try and shrink my groups down.

    That's some darn good shooting.:thumbsup:


    Best I can do at 50 yards is keep it on a 12 inch steel plate, like my young friend here.
    Wouldn't call it a group though.:)

    Good shootin'. I like to shoot at 50 yards quite a bit. A great trick I use to build confidence and skill when distance shooting is to use smaller targets at closer ranges. First off it makes it alot more easy to tell what the results are, instaed of have to walk back and forth. I like to take a piece of card board and tape small post-it notes and put about a dozen or so on there and shoot them at 5 yards. Using a 3"x3" post-it note is the same as shooting 15"x15" target at 25 yards. 3x5 cards work well too. Very similar to shooting a 15"x25" silouhette target. The little orange sticky targets you can get at Wal-Mart in the 100 pack with 1", 2" and 3" work great too. Shooting the 1" targets at 5 yards is the same as shooting a paper plate at 50 yards. Try some of these up close targets and as you start hitting them better, move a paper plate out to 25 or 50 yards and see what a difference it makes. It's basically the same sight picture (put a 1" dot at 5 yards and have a paper plate at 50 yards and see how similar they look side by side in your sights). It's kind of a mental trick too. You "know" you can hit stuff at 5 yards, but 50!?! Give a try and see how your distance shooting starts to improve. Nothing more fun than setting up some beer/coke cans at 50 yards with your buddies and start knocking'em down. :cool:
