Paper handgun Field Pistol silhouette Match 2022

1
Any interest in shooting a paper silhouette match again this year, modeled on the IHMSA Field Pistol event? Read over the attached rules, and dispute my system for scaling the targets within the next few days, if needed.

Not as fun as actually ringing steel, but almost as frustrating.

The outdoor range to get 25 yards is a fur piece from town. The indoor range in town is where I can get 15 yards. I'll do some checking, but I think I'll have to use the scaled down target for 15 yards. Looking forward to scheduling a shoot. Sometimes very difficult due to schedule. Watch this space.

Sure, I'm in. I'll get out the the range at least one more time before September, I can make it work. Someone has to bring up the bottom of the list to get the good shooters out to play. :lol: I don't have to shoot well to be able to use "I shoot competitively" to justify my hobby to people who don't.

I am a little curious about one bit of the rules - it doesn't impact me at all, I just don't understand it. Why exclude AR-style pistols? To use an example for our CZ fans, why is the Scorpion ok but the Bren is not? Other than muzzle velocity, is there some reason feeding from a magazine ahead of the grip would provide undue advantage for bottlenecked rounds? Does a mare's leg qualify?

Can’t quite remember why I put that in the rules for the first round three years ago. Probably just because I find them needlessly loud and unpleasant to have in a nearby lane. Also shooting with an arm brace seems like cheating.

I thought braces were already covered by the rule about only making contact with the gun with your hands? Lucky Gunner had a piece a while back on using certain pistol designs as a "cheek pistol" even without a brace. Wait, here's the link -

No braces or contact beyond the hands makes total sense. No artillery Lugers either. But I think those prohibitions cover what you want to cover without needing to further restrict firearm rights. :lol: Unless there's another concern about using a foregrip?

I totally get not wanting to shoot indoors next to a rifle-caliber pistol shooter.

Litigious bunch here, aren't we?

Which is one of the things I like about this place! I was on my high school debate team, although I kinda sucked...

In Field Pistol, some weird grip strategies are typical, so I shouldn't discriminate against forearms. Look up "taco hold." I wasn't planning to try that, myself.

I don't like them outdoors, either. Or 5.7 pistols. Also glad I've never met an S&W .460 at the range!

Artillery Luger, you say? One of my MkIIs comes close, but it doesn't have a stock...

Of course, it also doesn't have a price tag in the multiple thousands of dollars!
