The idea is not really mine, but I am offering an adaptation for airsoft... How about we have a monthly contest, I'll call it the Minimum Engagement Distance (MED) contest, where we call our shots shooting a printed target on a standard 8.5 X 11 sheet of paper (?)

The M.E.D. at most fields is 100ft, correct me if I am wrong, and I believe that at this distance we can encompass all platforms whether upgraded or stock, bolt action or semi-auto, gas or spring.

You may shoot off-hand, prone, or kneeling, but you must be 100ft from the posted target. The tighest groups from a 10-shot scoring claims King of the month honors, and then the competition begins again the next month.

You can punch as much paper as you want, but you are only allowed one submitted entry per month.

The target will have blanks to input data such as rifle, optics, ammo, positioning (prone, off hand etc), score and of course the shooters name...

I have no preference on what target we select, but it must suit the needs for airsoft, be scorable, and we all shoot the same taget. The target can even change from month to month, as long as we are all on the same sheet of music.

What say ye?

Ye? I said it now what ;) Well to do this there should be something else needed like pictures of the shooting or video. A.lso 100 is close, some people on here, not going to say names (cough) woogie (cough) fuzzy (cough) have supped up rifles that have very small groupings at that range. Any rifle with a range of 250 will have a 3-8 in grouping at 100ft.

With a grouping like that, sounds like they would be the ones to beat each month...could be fun!

Minimum distances can be defined along with the target choice.

A photo of the target once completed can be added as an attachment or link. Video of course is optional, but always fun to view...

Haha, we can shoot with our eyes closed?


And I like this idea. I think we should make the distance of the target a little further back. But at the same time, not too far, as some people only have access to a certain amount of shooting space.

However, there are several variables with this contest that we have to consider such as wind, terrain, etc. For example, hills, tornadoes ???
, and other variables.

Overall, like the idea, it has potential, just need to decide on a few things (ground rules).

Well, youtube, Facebook, and Photobucket are all free. So why not be prepared to post a video of your shooting?

It doesent have to be an HD masterpiece, but if there is something more on the line here than a title, Id like proof.

And I vote for a range of 120 - 150 ft. Or make different classes that people can compete in.

Stock class and modified class and "really" modified class. Then have a different range for each class. 100 ft for stock, 150 for mod, and 200 or so for ultra mod.

I don't know about you fuzz, but we usually don't play with tornadoes down here. As for distance, I really only have 100 ft to shoot in (I suppose this will be about right for the other people who live in the suburbs). Also, I suggest that we do multiple types of contests such as bolt action, sidearm, Mid-Range AEG, etc. That way it would level the playing field so that we could have multiple winners and not just 1 or 2 every month.

That gets a +1 from me thats a really good idea just bumb the ranges back 100 stock, 175-200 mini mods, and 225- 250 woogie/ fuzzy master class
. How would we sort the class's, would DIY mods be mini mods or still stock, would a tbb bring you to mini mod class, then a tbb and cylinder set put you in the master class. Would definitely make a fine line between the class's.

We could even do a gas class and a spring class, seeing as there are a lot of people with gas rifles.

Tornadoes...... if your are shooting a airsoft gun when there is a tornado wont there a lot of cross winds and curving

I always thought you did. ::) But you do have to agree that you, woogie, and silent all have nice rifle's, (wonko is in his own class
). Also a lot more modified then some of the other members here, and the one thing to 3 take the cake on is experience.

Oh and one last thing, wonko should not be able to compete, he is way to good at what he does
Jk but I would love to see the accuracy of all his sexy guns. Maybe he can have his own class of competition the wonko class( gun must be worth as much as a echo 1 mini gun).


For those who don't know that was wonkos asahi Wa-2000.

Could have a stock class.... where nothing is done to the rifle.
And then have a modified class. Where if you do any type of mods to it, it goes in that class.

And if fuzzy and myself are whooping all you little ones here...... that may give the rest of you some motivation to do something about it

Same thing here man ;)

Like yours it was working great when I sent it. Shipping can be a pain sometimes. I have had more rifles get buggered up from that than anything else.


I say just have two classes. One for the stock, and that means nothing done to it. Just a good cleaning, and nothing else. The other other class will be the modified class. This one will be if you have done anything to the rifle, anything at all.

Once you start saying, well you can do this, but not this, you could get into some really sticky areas.


For the targets.... why not use the standard military zero target. They are very easy to find, and fairly cheap.

A complete list of what you have done to the rifle should be needed as well. Of course you can skip this in the stock class ;)

Sadly I didn't fetch that amount for that rifle, only $3k. ::)

I am going to stick to having a set distance of 100ft for all rifles. You can still have separate classes to compete, but by keeping the distance of 100ft it will be far easier to score.

If you push the distance further, flyers will possibly not even hit the paper and could go unmarked. At least a 100ft they can still be seen out of the normal group.

Three classes, Beginner, Moderate, Expert. No needed things to get into a certain group, just you own judgment of which ever you feel you can hold your own ground in.

So... If woogie and fuzzy are masters... does that make me a god?

That would be a good idea, but it could be that if you come first place in lets say, beginner, you'd have to move up to moderate and see how you fare there. That way the best of their class won't win every month.

OUCH!!!! Dayum man that was harsh!!

But I think Fuzzy and myself would be willing to let you be a god with us


I like that Pvt.... Or start it where everyone is on the same level. Then after a few months start to figure who can be in the next group up.

So say the top half of the people entered will be bumped up to the next level. Then after a few months, the top half in that group can be bumped up to the highest class.

That way we don't have someone thinking they will do great.... and then get there butt handed to them.

Or can say the winner of one month can compete in the next month, but with a different weapon only. So say I win the first one, heck I will ;) but lets just say it is already over, I can do the next month contest, but can't use the same weapon.

Could also have a pistol class ;) That would be fun. Have that range be set to 50 feet.

I'm a bit egotistical... only a little bit though...


As for the first place moves up a class, I like that idea.

First place of the Masters/Expert (which ever it shall be called) class gets the satisfaction of being the ego one for the month

Alright, so then how does this sound.

100ft, must be physically or laser measured, no satellite measurement.
Three classes, enter any at your choice, winner of lower 2 classes must move up next month.
Video required? (I would prefer it, make it more interested at least, but would also prevent cheating)

As for targets, I would suggest something simple, and easy to score.

Scoring, should it be measurement from two farthest holes, or by rings X system? Two farthest holes would prevent ties though.

Or we can get a title, like master sniper of the month, it can go were the thing for how many post you have(mother earth, Silent Warrior, etc etc)

I do like the idea of the winner of one class moves up to the next.

Video would be a great thing.... But you also need to remember that not everyone has something that will work for that.

Could do it as an honor system and see how that goes. But, and a big but here, if you are going to claim that you can put one round on another from 100'. Video proof will be needed!! NO IF ANDS OR BUTTS.

But if you are able to get us video of the rifle shooting then great! If you can take video of from the target side, with the target in view. That would be great.
