Pre WWII challenge match. Iron sights only

Rules are simple, Any centerfire gun made before 1945 is eligible.

10 rounds at 25 yards on a 50 yard small bore target from any position except from a gun vise. Sandbags okay lead sled is not.

One entry per gun enter as many guns as you want. Target posted is a sample target showing what I want on the target. Name, date, time, temp, wind if shooting outside. Make, model and best approximation of manufacturers date you can get. Mark score on left side if possible.

No prizes, just bragging rights for you if you actually shoot an old gun and turn in a target. Best target gets an Atta Boy, that's the best I can do.

I'm game, I have a few pre-45 rifles.

All it cost is some fun shooting.

;) lots of fun

25 yard? Why not a 25 yards target at 100yards?
