Now this is a UN story I like. Would any of ya'll care to participate in the UN Shoot-Off?

The Rules?

Rules of the Tournament

A summary for those who don't want to click the link just yet:

You either make your own target or download one of theirs. You find a safe place to shoot. Shoot said target. Show people your target & explain why you choose to put holes in either the UN flag or a UN helmet. There's talk of having a shoot off next year between those with the smallest group on target.

Now it doesn't specify a caliber or a distance, but I would suggest - just to be sporting - that any centerfire longarm would call for 100 yards minimum. a pistol caliber carbine or .22 rimfire would call for 50 yards. A handgun would call for 25, but if you want to make the stretch to 50 I won't argue with you. For those of you with .223 caliber rifles I would give 'er a go at 150 yards. The .30 caliber enthusiasts should consider at least 200. Yeah it makes the target small & not particularly easy to hit, but enough practice & you'll feel better about hitting at that distance & farther.

That is all. Carry on.
