Technically, “Bullseye” is a nickname, and the true name of this style of competition is NRA Conventional Pistol Competition. Whatever you choose to call it, Bullseye shooting is a great way to learn how to shoot a pistol well. SCC offers two pistol leagues: .22 rim fire & center fire.
Both leagues shoot the National Match Course: 10 shots Slow Fire (10 shots in 10 minutes), 10 shots Timed Fire (two strings of five shots, 20 seconds each) and 10 shot Rapid Fire (two strings of five shots, 10 seconds each). .22 league is NRA qualified, following all the NRA competition rules. Center fire is a bit more difficult, so we forgo the NRA rules in one or two aspects of the league.
Center fire pistol league allows any center fire pistol .32 caliber or larger, revolver or semi-automatic. (600 Ft.-Lbs maximum at the muzzle). Since center fire pistols tend to be more difficult to master, this league does not stick to NRA rules and Rapid Fire may use two hands. At the end, the entire league is divided into four equal classes, so people have no idea what class they’re in until Awards Night. The top four scorers in each class receive awards, plus Most Improved (from the first half to the second half of the league) and Top Gun. The league shoots for 10 weeks, with your worst two scores thrown out. A nominal fee is charged for the league and includes targets, the Awards Night/Fun Night party (free refreshments) and awards. The range of skill in the league is quite broad, and no one ever made fun of anyone for their ability, except between friends. In fact, most of the better shooters are more than willing to provide advice, if you ask.
So come on out and Shoot The Big Guns!
