SHOOTING RANGE PAGE #3
Thanksgiving 09 - 2015 Shooting Pumpkins with a .45-70 Buffalo Rifle and Henry Brass 30-30!!!!
This is a target I (doc hemp) shot ... with my Smith & Wesson 357 ... 2 inch barrell ... hadn't shot in a while ... this was my 4th of 5 targets
I shot that day .... 2 hands no rest ... 25 yrds.
Winfried's best target of the day ... with my 357 Colt Python 6" barrell - 25 yards .... .38 cal semi wadcutter ammo - a 96 ... his 11th
bullet was a 10 .... thought he had only shot 9 ... fired one too many .... even a greater target ... his best of the day. Winfried came
over from Germany to visit with doc Mike this past Oct. Winfried is president of the German Sport Shooters Association. They are only
allowed to shoot centerfire bullseye targets ... no combat or human shaped targets. We all had a blast shooting on our private range.
See his & Doc Mike's Harley tour with us
here are some photos of them shooting
This was Rob's (my son-in-law) 1st off-hand target of the day = a 98/4x a record score for him with the .22 ... 6" barrell Supermatic ...
this is the 1st day he ever beat me! More practice for me now!
Rob's 10 shot precision target of the day, = 100/9x, (tied another record). But he is yet to make the loneliest club in the world! the
perfect 10x CLUB THAT ONLY ME & MY DAD ARE IN!
This is me with my totally adjustable German Shooting Glasses,
This is my dad! Carl Hempe, he has won several national shooting matches,
was one of three Mr. Americas in 1939, he was the middleweight. Below is one of his 100's with with 5 X's, off hand of course,
at 25yrds. He shot a perfect 10X off hand at 50 yrds & took High Civilian at
Quantico VA many years ago in the 50's. .22 cal. He passed away several years ago.
One of my better 10X Precision (witnessed) targets, the X's count if they are touching the outside of the line too! That's why
these that are mostly all inside the X line are so cherished!
This is another of my perfect 10x witnessed, precision 25yd targets. Shot with a model 41 S&W .22 Cal, long barrell with a
compensator tip. This is what it takes to get into the loneliest club in the world.
