Rule change

Post by DonBrummer on 12/8/2015, 9:28 pm

I bolded and underlined the specific changes.   I know my fellow league shooters were not aware of this...

This is from Jan 2014
3.4 .22 caliber Pistol or Revolver - Any pistol (single shot or semi-automatic) or revolver using a .22 caliber rim-fire cartridge having an overall length of not more than 1.1 inches and with lead or alloy bullet not greater than .23 inches in diameter and weighing not more than 40 grains; barrel length, including cylinder, not more than 10 inches. Trigger pull not less than 2 pounds. Any sights, including telescopic, are permitted with the exception of those sights that project an image on the target. Open sights may be adjustable but not over 10 inches apart measured from the apex of the rear sight to the apex of the front sight. Any sighting device programmed to activate the firing mechanism is prohibited. All standard safety features of the gun must operate properly.

This opens up the weight rule so you can now use the 44gr Gemtech round that was readily available for awhile.

There is an addition to 3.4 in the new rule book, that specifically opens it up:

"(a)Ammunition- Any .22 caliber rim fire long rifle cartridge may be used. Only bullets made of lead or similar soft material are permitted."

Simple editorial cleanup.  You define the pistol in the pistol and revolver rule and the ammunition in the ammunition rule.  Keeping them separate allows for easier and clearer changes.

How can you use a single shot in sustained fire?

You can use as many as 4 different pistols in the .22 match. It would be perfectly legal to shoot a single shot for the SF match. You would have to change pistols for the NMC portion since you have to shoot each part of the match with the same pistol.

Not to get off the subject of the original post, but............I see that TargetSports has CCI Gemtech Subsonic 1020fps 42 gn. available. Is this stuff suitable for Bullseye? Thanks, Bob

Apparently.  This has generated a lot of discussion at league as we have a handful of shooters who shoot them regularly.  Odd thing is that no one was aware of the rule change until this week.
