ePostal Contest: Don't Abduct Me, Bro!

Ok kids; here it is - the second ePostal contest of the season.

Here's the theme -
Aliens want to abduct you!

And do... stuff... to you.

Your mission is to stop them.
You know, from doing... stuff.




















(Target courtesy of The Glock FAQ)
But of course, life is never simple...
So here are the rules (any similarity to Mr. C's rules is purely because I blatantly plagiarized them):

For every entry, you will need to shoot two targets, each printed out on a single 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. Download the target here (it's a PDF file, so you'll need the free Adobe Reader):

ePostal Target - Aliens II

DISTANCE: All Classes: 25 feet, or 10 yards, which ever is available to you.

PROCEDURE
:

First Target: 10 shots, offhand, standing, unsupported, 1 or 2 hands, your choice (three hands allowed if you're an alien).

Second Target
: 10 shots, offhand, standing, unsupported, 1 hand only, left, right, or middle hand - your choice! (NOW you remember me, don't you??!!)

The targets must be shot in pairs. You cannot shoot several target #1's, then shoot several target #2's and put together the best two. You can only submit one target pair per shooter/gun. You can shoot multiple entries, however, with different firearms.

You can shoot the match more than once if you don't like your score and want to try again, but remember to shoot the targets in sets.

SCORING: 10 shots per target, for a total of 20 shots per entry.
Touching any object once will score.
There are 7 large objects in a circular configuration in the center of the target (six aliens and a ship) -

These large objects are worth 1 point each.

There is also a row of small spaceships on the top (5) and bottom (4) of the target.
These small objects are worth 2 points each.

Only one hit per object allowed. Multiple hits on a single object will only score once.

A perfect set will render a score of 38 points (2 X 9 ships, plus 1 alien or the 1 big ship = 19 points per target). This may take a little strategery, depending on what you're shooting.

Mark your individual scores for each target, target #1 total score, target #2 total score, the total score for both targets combined, and the name you want to use when listed in the results all on target #1 with a legible felt pen, along with the class and type of gun used.

Don't write your name on the target, only the name you want to appear in the results.
Email the results to me at cugblog AT msn DOT com.

CLASSES:
CLASS ONE: Rimfire - Iron Sight. Any rimfire handgun with no more than a 12" barrel. Optical sights such as red dots, lasers, or scopes are not allowed.

CLASS TWO: Rimfire - Optic Sight. Any rimfire handgun with no more than a 12" barrel. Red dots sights, lasers, or scopes can be used.

CLASS THREE: Centerfire - Iron Sight. Any centerfire handgun with no more than a 12" barrel. Optical sights such as red dots, lasers, or scopes are not allowed.

CLASS FOUR: Centerfire - Optic Sight. Any centerfire handgun with no more than a 12" barrel. Red dots sights, lasers, or scopes can be used.

CLASS FIVE: Other stuff - BB, pellet, arrows, slingshots... Let me know, but no shotguns.

ALTERNATE ENTRIES: If for whatever reason you cannot shoot the match in the manner described, shoot it anyway and send in your entry, but be sure to tell me what you did so I can include that info in the results.

MULTIPLE ENTRIES: You can enter more than once, in fact, it is encouraged. Shoot everything you own, and everything you can borrow! Take a buddy to the range, get him entered, then borrow his gun and enter that! The only restriction is that a shooter can only enter once for any given gun.

Different calibers in the same gun count as one gun. For example, .38SPL and .357MAG are considered as one, as would be .44SPL and .44MAG. Different guns of the same caliber and barrel length can be entered. A .22 conversion on a .45 frame counts as a second gun, so you can take off the conversion and shoot the .45 too.

PRIZES: My complete respect and adoration, as well as the respect of shooters (literally) across the globe, as well as a kudos on my site, which is read by

some people every day.
