July E-Postal - Fish In A Barrel

In the past it has been said that my targets have been shall we say, rather challenging. O.K. I can fix that. Here's a target as easy as shooting fish in a barrel. In fact, you can't miss*. Download the target here.
Don't use this one.
*Your mileage may vary. Here's how:

Limited Vickers. You are allowed no more than 10 holes in the paper.
A hit on the paper will count 1 point, assuming that's all you hit.
A hit on the wooden part of the barrel will get you 2 points.
A hit on the ring around the window will get you 3 points.
A hit on any one of the 9 bolts on the ring will get you 10 points each BUT you may score each bolt only once.
Hits on the fish get you points as noted on the fish but again, you may only score each fish only once. All parts of the fish count, including the fins and tails.

Edge hits will favor the shooter. If you put a large caliber hole in the right place, you may claim any one of the 4 fish you nick but only one and only once. A perfect score on this is 100. Since there is no part of the target that doesn't get you at least 1 point, You Can't Miss!

Target to be shot standing, unsupported, 25-30 ft or whatever your range allows. Classes will be the usual suspects:

CLASS ONE: Any rimfire handgun with no more than a 12" barrel, iron sights or red dot, no magnification.

CLASS TWO
: Any rimfire handgun with no more than a 12" barrel, optic sights, magnification.

CLASS THREE
: Any centerfire (non-revolver) handgun with no more than a 12" barrel, iron sights or red dot, no magnification.

CLASS FOUR
: Any centerfire (non-revolver) handgun with no more than a 12" barrel, optic sights, magnification.

CLASS FIVE
: Any revolver with no more than a 12" barrel, iron sights or red dot, no magnification.

CLASS SIX
: Any revolver with no more than a 12" barrel, optic sights, magnification.

CLASS SEVEN
: Any handgun with no more than a 14" barrel, any sights, scopes, laser, whatever. This class is primarily for target pistols.

CLASS EIGHT:
Everything else.This includes rifles, PCCs or whatever.

CLARIFICATION: In keeping with the "you can't miss" theme, if you find you have 2 or more hits cleanly inside one of the fish, give yourself the point score for the fish, and 2 pts each for any additional hits on the same fish which we will assume at least hit the inside surface of the barrel

I note no extra credit is being given for hitting only the bolt hole in the nuts on the bolts....
