Default Traditional FSC Week 19

Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there. In their honor, we'll shoot a heart target this week, facing straight on.

Simple heart shape, as shown below, about 7" by 7", with four quadrants, numbered in the middle of each and shot with the first shot of each respective shooting day. In other words: shoot quadrant "1" on Day 1, "2" on Day 2, etc.

Shoot from 12 yards, any stance (6 for kiddos). Most "hits" (touching line counts in shooter's favor) in the proper days' quadrants will win the next week's call. Tie-breaker will be eye-balled closest total distance to the numbers in the quadrants.

Good luck and have fun!

Draw your own target or feel free to print mine:

Shooting sparingly since apparently tearing my left bicep at work (helping a customer load a 260-lb vanity) late last week.

You're a little old to be loading that stuff. Call up one of them young employees. Or better yet, tell them to bring a fork lift.

Yeah, I should know better. Problem was the customer lurched and left me with all the weight at once on my left arm loading into a four foot high truck. Muscle popped so that I could feel and hear it. Can still move it and lift some weight, so it's not detached. Be fine in a few days probably.

You need to see a doc if you in fact tore that muscle or the ligaments that attach it. Time is if the essence to get it fixed properly. The longer you wait, the greater the chance that a repair wonít work.

TT, I agree with Jerry. Dr English is a good orthopedic surgeon in Georgetown. I tore my bicep ligaments at the forearm bone attachment and he reattached it. Scorching pain immediately upon injury. Ive heard of others tearing the muscle itself and seeing two balls. Im pretty sure a torn bicep wont heal at the tear.

TT, were you supporting the box weight on the actual bicep or a leveraged bicep? It looks like a deep bruise. Im gonna pray for your speedy recovery, diagnosis no tear and an available forklift.

Thanks, y'all. The arm looks really bad, I know. But I have full range of motion and even good pressing strength in a curl motion against moderate resistance. No real pain. I think there was a minimal partial tear, which just bled like a stuck hog. Will give it another couple of days to see if strength keeps coming back.

Meanwhile, maybe I should lay off for a few days more often....
Day 1: hit

The rain and my unusually busy schedule have kept me from playing along, but hopefully I will be back on schedule sooner rather than later

I know I said I'd eyeball total distance to respective day's numbers for tie-breaker, but I got curious, went ahead and measured my shots. Total is 4-1/2". Confident GP will hit Day 4. You can beat my total, GP!

So you are going to put the pressure on me huh?

Didnít think Iíd get a chance to shoot today as itís been raining most of the day, but the sun did just pop out a few minutes ago.

I enjoy pressure and competition, and I really choked on the shot this evening.

Good shooting everyone!
