July E-postal - Tips

It occurred to me that a really clever shooter could get a perfect score on the Venn diagram target by placing all his or her shots in a fairly tight group. I pulled up the target and modeled 12 hits in the smallest group possible.
Here's a close-up of how to do it. The circle for the centers of the .22 cal holes is .905 dia. The driver is getting the 1's at 12, 4, and 8 o'clock. The white holes are clearly (barely) in the 2's, but the remaining 6 holes are on the line and count for either 2 or 3.

A real show-off would tag the 3 apexes, put 3 rounds in a single ragged hole in the center, and the last 6 on the arcs. Without using a shotgun.

Mike will probably do this. I switched glasses and went straight to H-E-Double-Toothpicks. Shooting again this weekend. David

I worry that the target is too easy. Maybe not. I'm also thinking of modeling some of the trick targets they've been using on Top Shot. The gumballs and golf tees, the bottle openers, and the Q-tips for example.
