Lodi has a real nice long range and indoor shooting facility.  There are monthly Bullseye matches at the Oakdale Gun Club in Minnesota. It is frustration that there are few bullseye matches listed in Wisconsin's Wi-Force.  Minnesota and Iowa seem to have many more bullseye matches.  You can look them up at http://www.mrra.org/pistol.htm

Hi from the Netherlands

Post by jeroenw114 on 10/29/2014, 10:48 am

Hi,

I am Jeroen, from the Netherlands, Europe. I am a sport shooter since 1989 and am shooting competition and matches with a Benelli MP90S and S&W 686. Next to those I have a few more for the fun and to work on, always loved to work on guns.

Next to modern guns I collect and sometimes restore antique guns, if you like you can check them on http://www.oldguns.nl

I thid not know this forum and was apointed to it by a member of the smith-wessonforum.com on the moment I treid to sell a true Bullseye grip there. So my first post will be a selling add but that won't mean it should be my last.

Well, that's me.
Jeroen

Hello all.  Tim here aka CWO4USCGRET - most of you military types will know what it means; Retired Coast Guard Chief Warrant Officer 4 for the rest of you!

Totally retired as of August 1st this year; 4 years Navy, 26 years Coast Guard (all active duty) and the last 10-1/2 years as a Customs and Border Protection Officer on the US-Canadian Border.  I had planned my retirement but a heart attack had me stop working in mid April.  No pay check until mid September when I started getting social security and CBP's monthly checks (other then my Coast Guard retirement and VA disability checks).

When I was stationed in Cleveland, OH from 1981 - 1985 for 2 years I was part of the 9th Coast Guard District .22 Bullseye Team shooting in the Cuyahoga County Pistol League; we didn't win any matches but sure had a lot of fun!  The Coast Guard issued us S&W Model 41s - hated to give it back!  During our second season I had the distinction of being the lowest rated Marksman to receive an award; with a 226.6 something average over 30 matches I was the 26th Marksman overall!  I still have a nice little plaque for that somewhere around here.

Fast forward to now; I have a modest collection of guns; including 52 1911s of various calibers; and in the last year of so I picked up a Jess Harpe Colt Bullseye gun and (last week) a possibly Al Dinan Colt .38 Super converted to .38 Special Wadcutter gun.  On Tuesday I will go to my local FFL and pickup a Jim Clark Sr (Shreveport, LA marked) long slide .38 Special Colt.  The Dinan and the Harpe will share space and range time with a S&W Model 52-1 that I also have.

I've been shooting Silhouette Targets for work quals for the last 10-1/2 years so I will gradually try to work my way into the local gun club's informal Weekly Bullseye Shoot.  When you're used to shooting minute of center body mass that 25 yard bullseye look mighty small!

Thanks in advance for the warm welcome I am sure to receive.

My bullseye shooting experience is limited to one week at Camp Perry when I tagged along with a buddy using his gun, shooting the P100 last year. I learned a lot, and realize how little I do know, at least to some extent.

I'll search before I ask any questions, and be polite. That should cover most rules.

Active Military, currently at Ft. Bragg NC, so there I know there are different rules for going distinguished.

All in all, really looking forward to learning from here, getting better, and one day hope to get on the AMU.

New here.  I've regained an interest in bullseye pistol.  I did some shooting years ago as cross-training for High Power rifle.  Now I'm trying to find a recreational shooting pastime that will give me a challenge.

New member from New Jersey. Tony Brong's blog post about the future of the sport convinced me to sign up for this forum and start participating, rather than just anonymously browse.

Shot trap and skeet and .22s growing up; wanted to try ISSF-style pistol shooting thanks to watching the Olympics on TV but I never knew where or how to start. Last year, I found a local Bullseye club online, emailed the league director, and got invited to come try it out. Great sport, and I'm enjoying the journey.

Getting into SSAA Target Pistol (same as bullseye) and thought I'd say hi.

The only big difference for us is we aren't allowed anything over 38 cal for handguns (unless you have a hi-cal permit and shoot an allowed discipline, which bullseye isn't). So I'm looking at building a 9mm 1911 (have a Norinco for a base pistol) and picked up a Hammerli 215 (got it real cheap and this is what made me look for something to use it in)

cheers

New guy from South Carolina, first post. I've been a NRA Highpower shooter for a while and am trying to branch out to work on the Service Pistol and Rimfire EIC matches. I was up at the Creedmoor Eastern Games the last couple of days (my first competition higher than club level) and had a blast.

I'm intending on buying a Beretta 92 variant in the next week or so to replace the inadequate Glock 35 I have been using in the meantime. I've been shooting USPSA, but never any sort of pure target oriented handgun competition.

I'm here to learn!

Unless your active duty and have to shoot a Beretta you should consider a 1911 first. You can shoot the 45 match, center fire match and EIC match with a 1911 (Think about a Range Officer) But if you get the Beretta 1st you will still need to pick up a .45 to fire the whole match. Just my .02 and welcome.

I'm active duty USCG, but everything we do is self-funded (except for the lucky ones at the CG academy). I can shoot anything authorized by the comp, because it will come out of my pocket anyway. Wink  There are Gold Cups available for issue, but they're not in the best shape, we cannot do any modifications to them, and I'd be required to buy ammo for it, which I refuse to do. I'm not opposed to the 1911, but it seems like the 92s are doing better in competition and the reloading costs are slightly less. On a relatively limited budget it seemed to me like a used 92 with a KKM is the way to go, but my knowledge base on this is limited to what I've seen here and speaking to a couple folks at local comps. I'm here to learn though. Cool

Regular_Guy,
With the recent rule changes for 1911 ammo in EIC matches, I believe the .45 is going to regain the advantage over the 92fs.

...and no matter what, you will never be able to shoot the 9mm for the .45 stage but you can always shoot a .45 for the CF stage.

Regular_Guy, if all you are shooting are the EIC matches the 92 is a good choice. The 1911 shooting an 185gr JHP might be a better choice now.

As pointed out by Rob while I was typing this:
The 2700 matches are comprised of 3 90 shot matches, a 90 shot 22lr Match, a 90 shot Center Fire Match (.32 and greater) and a 90 shot .45acp match. Most competitors use a .45acp for the center fire and .45 matches.

Regular Guy,    I feel the need to point out that it is a lot less expensive to reload for the .45 then the 9mm. The cost of primers is identical for both. The 9 actually uses a larger powder charge then the .45 and the .45 has many many loads using cast lead bullets that shoot great scores. I personally don't know of any loads for the 9 that utilizes lead bullets and is accurate. There are shooters on here that are trying to find such a load but no luck so far. That means if you want to be competitive you will have to load the 9 exclusively with the more expensive (3X) jacketed bullets. Another .02 worth.

Hi - Ari Shinozaki here.  Just a new person interested in pistol shooting, and more recently BE.  Have been active about 1 1/2 years now.  Have been on an accuracy kick, and so went to a Pardini SP for 22lr.  Unfortunately in CA, finding a used BE ready 1911 45 ACP has not been fruitful, so I'm sending a used stock SA 1911 out to Clark next week for a full BE treatment and wait for a few months.  I haven't found a regular BE club in the San Jose area - any one interested in just shooting together at the range, please contact me! 
Call-out to the bullseye community:  With the help of this site and bullseyepistol.com and dry fire practice, I've notched my first personal milestone of 98 and 2X 25 yr rapid fire with the Pardini...which is a far better place than when I first tried 1-handed with my Glock - I only hit 3 scorable shots...
