Cool Smiley Face Challenge!!

Okay, kids, get down to your local range, string up a silhouette target and do your best to do a Mel Gibson smiley face on the head of the target. Rules are simple and few.

-Range: 7 yards
-Any sighting system. Lasers, night sights, iron sights, red dots or
holographic reflex sights. Whatever works best for you.
-Centerfire pistols only. New shooters and ladies are allowed to use .22
LR pistols.
-8 shots to the head.
-This is what you are trying to create:

Give it your best shot and post a photo of your target. Let's see who can do the best!! The smile part is the hardest to create!! Just remember, we will be laughing with you, not at you!! Trust me, this is much harder than it seems. Lookin' forward to some good attempts. GO FOR IT!!!

The last time we did this it was a ton of fun. I just wish I could participate, it's probably going to be another month or two before I can shoot a gun.

Due to special circumstance, Chuck, you are allowed to create your smiley face on the target with a pencil!! So start pokin' holes Chuck!!!!

I'm gonna give it a go. Last week, I got caught up in a new gun and everyone shooting at my target to try it out. This week, whether it resembles the elephant man or not, I'm gonna do it. I KNOW mine will not resemble a face at all but then, that's the fun of it!

Ok. Back from a short trip. Had some time to think this through during the drive back and I think I got it figured out.

So tomorrow I plan on implementing my secret (but legal) strategy and hopefully produce an eight shot smiley face at seven yards.

Will probably try it with various pistols/revolvers.

I will post all attempts with firearm used.

Hope I don't embarrass myself.

This may become a part of my regular range practice.

Then as I progress I will start doing caricatures of emoji's.

Got a chance to go to the range this afternoon and shoot my new Colt. I brought three pistols; my two Colts and the Solo CDP. Shot several rounds through all three to warm up and ended up with the closest thing I could come up with to a Smiley Face using the Solo

Then realized, if I inverted the target, it looked more like a Frowney Face

All in all a fun time, but that is way harder than Mel makes it out to be !!

Plan changed and broke the rules.

Well I had good intentions when I went to the range but no target to shoot at besides bullseye target so I turned it around backwards and shot 8, 16 round groups, at seven yards and got this.

I think my strategy will work. I will get a target tomorrow.

Shot this with my CZ SP01. ( I call it Sponge Bob)

Wedgie, if all else fails, follow the directions!!! The rules call for 8 shots to create a smiley face, not eight sixteen shot groups!!

I will give you an A+ for effort though!! You burned up 128 rounds and made up a pretty good facsimile of a Mel Gibson-ISH smiley face. However, NO CIGAR!!! I tried to make the rules few and simple. Maybe this was that ad libbing you were speaking of. I think that maybe you added too much!!

EIGHT SHOTS ONLY!!!
