New Competition Format– 50 Meter Gallery Rifle Precision tried out today!




Our Pistol section organiser, Paul F. ran the first of a new series of monthly competitions on the range today. The Format is as follows:-

Standing position

Distance 50 Meters

One unlimited sighter card and 3 score cards of 10 shots in 5 minutes per card.

Target used is similar to the 25 meter precision pistol target.

This was an enjoyable and challenging discipline to shoot. Conditions were bright and windy enough to affect the shooters and the flight of the bullet. The attached photo shows the winners of the first 3 positions, Sean McE., Ralph L. and Paul F.

We will run one of these competitions each month for the rest of the year. The schedule is published  on the web site calendar and is shown below
