PPC fun

It seemed a little slow on the forum, so I thought I would show you all the fun I had adjusting my 3 position rear sight elevation at the range the other day.
I set position 1 for 10 yards, Position 2 for 18-25 yards, and position 3 at 57 and 60 yards ( on steel at position 3 ). I painted the steel before I started shooting. I should have been working on my 25 yard bullseye, but I was having so much fun clanging the steel at 57, and 60 yards, bullseye work just didn't fit in that day! The range set up was targets at 10, 18, and 25 yards, and as mentioned the steel at 57 and 60 yards, set up with my Sig range finder ( thank you Son for the gift ). This was all standing, iron sights, no resting or support, my soft 1120fps reloads. Not bragging, these German Mastershop pistols are magnificent to shoot!

Mechanical precision meets artistic genius! This X6 must be amazing to shoot.

57 yards is so far away for my mark1 eyeball, you're to be congratulated on some slick shooting!

Yes, very nice indeed! Gun, range, and shooting. I wish I had a spot like that to throw lead. Mainly indoor ranges around me, not how I grew up shooting and not my preference.

Beautiful pistol, great range, and excellent marksmanship.

The trifecta of win.

Thanks for the compliments! There is an indoor range only 10min. away that I used to enjoy shooting at, great folks, nicely lit. However, I was shooting there 2-3 times a week and ended up with blood lead poisoning. My blood/lead level was 40.5 micro grams/deciliter, normal is below 5. I am now down to 12.6 just from shooting outdoors again. This took 11 months. I am ok with 12.6 as much as I re-load and shoot.
I implore all shooters to have their Dr. do a lead blood workup, get a baseline established and scheduled tests, and use precautions, such as De-lead soap, and being careful about eating after shooting, etc. Also, don't allow children and Grandchildren to contact your clothing after shooting. As bad as high blood lead levels are for adults, it is much worse for children. The lead poison is invisible, and you don't think much about it until you are sick. Most comes from the primers igniting, I am told. Even an outdoor range is full of lead in the berms and backstops, and in the dust kicked up.
Sorry for getting off on a tangent here, but if this helps someone else its worth it!
