    10 meter air pistol matches on facebook

    I post this in anothe place before I realized there was a Airgun thread so I'll post it here .
    Hi If you like shooting 10 meter air pistols try this Facebook page . Its fun and easy . The page takes down your name and adds you to a spreed sheet and it has its own web page so you can go and look at your scores and everyone else's scores . It starts at the beginning of the year and its a once a month shoot for a year and at the end of the year the top pointer gets a trophy ,but you can join and shoot at any time . I am so bad a few people joined a few months after me and passed me up in scoring lol but I'm getting better . It really keep you wanting to shoot .Here is the link . https://www.facebook.com/10metercomp/ .
    It has all the rules on the page and how to get sighed up . Here are the rules and how it works . You put some info on the cards your going to shoot according to that months shoot like this last month it was 4 cards or targets with 10 shoots in each target for 40 shots you also have a time limit . So you put your name , date , match number like 4 cards will be something like 100,101, 102 ,103 what gun you use ,male or female ,age ,and a time left blank until after you shoot the card . Like how long did it take you to shoot that card example 12:30sec is how long it takes me to shoot 10 shoots .
    There is a time limit on every match . Here is how everyone know how long it took you to shoot the match and time is allowed for changing targets and photos afterwards to post . For example lets say the match is 40 shots in 60 minutes . What you do is take a group photo of your unshot cards with the info already on the cards ,you post that group photo of the targets and post it under the current match post . once you post it facebook puts a time on your comment .Right after you post the group photo start shooting the match once you finished all 4 cards add up your scores and put a total and the time it tool for each card . Then take a photo of each card as close as you can to the card but showing the full card . Post each card separately as a reply under your group photo and add the card number for the text . do this with to all 4 cards . This way your group photo and your 4 cards are altogether. Your shot cards you post in the reply will all have a time stamp on them also ,so everyone can see how long it took you to shoot the match ,add the scores ,take the photo and post .
    Showing the group unshot cards and then posting the shot cards later keep people from switching cards if they don't like there score . once you post your group card that is the card you have to shoot for the match . the info on the card helps make sure you're not switching cards its hard to duplicate exactly the same again ,and the cards shot cards are compared to the group photo .
    So since no one can cheap and you have to shoot the card you post earlier you fell the pressure of a real match as your shooting because you know that card is the match card and there are no do overs . Its as close to shooting a real match as you can get . Go there and check it out . The match cards stay up for a while but once the new match begins all the last month cards from the current match post are deleted so they might not be any cards to look at yet because a match just ended and a new match has started . You have all most a full month to practice between matches They start at the beginning of the month and end near the end . so later in this month or any month you can see cards start being post. Its really a lot of fun and Its got me shooting on a regular basis .
