At Unaka today Johnnie Stewart shot a .047 at 200 yards in the afternoon LV. What I heard from the scoring room was "I don't believe this", That target cost me a dollar bill, I think Johnnie was taking me for a walk.
Congratulations to Johnnie, he shot lights out.:D:D:D

I was sitting two benches to the right of Johnnie and shot a .680!!

The referees wouldn't post the target on the wailing wall, but there was a steady stream of heathens flowing through the office to pay tribute to the small group gods!!!

Cudos for protecting that target. If the target goes through the Records committe and is confirmed, I have a feeling Johnnie's namewill be in the record book for a long time.

Congratulations on a outstanding accomplisment..........jackie

Great shooting Johnny, that's a target you can be proud of for sure. It was measured by Gordon Earp, who has had the oppurtunity to measure a few world record targets that have stood, so it's going to be interesting to see what comes back. If it stands as is, I don't think I will see that record broken in my life time. I will try to post full results of the match either late tonight (as I'm working all day) or tomorrow, but Terry Leonard shot superbly this weekend taking the 2-gun win followed by Uncle George Waldrep who shot exceptionally well at 200 yards.

Great job Johnny, couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

Matthew, did you or anyone take a picture of the target? It would be nice for the world to see if one could be posted.

If your granddad hasn't sent the target off yet, could you get a picture?

I think Wayne was taking care of all the paperwork for the Record.

I went to pull the target and almost fell over :eek: thought for sure someone only fired 1 shot at it. I swear I stood and stared at it for 3 minutes before I could muster the nerve to pull it from the frame, Asked Normans Grandson, Dalton to verify that the backer had more than one hole in it, YEP.

Purdiest Target I ever did see !

Congradulations Johnny

That's a fantastic group... basically it would look similar to a single 7mm caliber hole... at 200 yards!
