Bullseye Rules

Post by throttleup on 9/5/2012, 11:11 am

One of our local indoor ranges holds a 25 yard, .22 cal., 600 point, Bullseye Match. A few of us from another range, shot their last match. In the interest of moving things along they use slightly different rules. You are only given 2 1/2 minutes to shoot 5 rounds Slow Fire. They repeat this 4 times. OK, we can go along with that but they advised us of their additional rule, if you put your gun down or even rest the barrel on the table, your string is finished. If you want to look through your spotting scope or your binoculars before your string is over, you must hold your weapon up in the air with the other hand. They tell us that resting or putting your gun down is considered "grounding your weapon" and it ends whatever string you are firing. I have the official NRA Conventional Bullseye rules as well as the modified NRA Winchester program rules and neither refer to any "grounding your weapon" rule. Has anyone ever seen or heard of this rule? If so, where does it come from? This one has us puzzled.

The match your shooting sounds like a local fun match, it has nothing to do with the NRA, its just a come shoot by our rules deal. I shoot a similar type match weekly its just for fun and nothing more. Its like the kid that owns the sand box, makes the rules, adapt and enjoy it. What makes these things fun is when you beat them at their own game. lol!

Whoever thought up this "rule" is suffering from recto-cranial inversion.

Thanks for your replies. We're kind of new at bullseye so we figured we had missed something somewhere. Anyway, glad there is no "grounding your weapon" rule in NRA Bullseye. I see from another thread, that some Olympics-International type matches use the 5 shots in 2 1/2 minutes rule. Maybe that is where this comes from.

Standard Pistol is a 60 shot event, and Rule 5.3(d) of the NRA International Pistol rules sort of addresses what you described as far as the 20 second and 10 second series are concerned.

But even then, they didn't get it right.
