Air Pistol Match in Bloomer, Wi April 8th 2017

Post by ChipEck on Sat Dec 17, 2016 6:11 pm

While not directly Bullseye related, I suspect a number of Bullseye shooters also shoot air pistols to practice for Bullseye.
I could not find even a single Air Pistol match in Wisconsin or Minnesota...so we are going to run one!




No joke, after not being able to find any matches Jim Ruch and I decided to run one ourselves. We met with Jerry Wilder, who was a well known International and Olympic Pistol Shooter back when he lived in Indiana. Jerry gave us a lot of good advice.

More details to follow, but it will be Saturday, April 8th, 2017 at the Bloomer Rod & Gun in Bloomer, Wisconsin.  
We will be shooting on 4 bullseye targets since we do not have target return system.  
We can accommodate relays of 12.
We will have awards.
Event will be 60 rounds in 70 minutes (with time to retrieve/replace targets).

The cost will be $8 for main event.

We will have a SIUS lane set up to run a seperate best shot event.
This will be $2 for five shots. The closest to 10.9 wins the entire pot.  
In the event of a tie the pot will be split.

There is a hotel just two miles away. Much more to follow.

Chip;
Could you explain the 4 bullseye targets so I know what to expect ?
You can plan on me being there.
Only a two hour drive.

Thanks;
Clarence

How many shots per bull ?
5 each for 3 targets.(60 shots)
15 each for 1 target.(60 shots)

That is my real question, sorry for being a pest Smile

No problem.  Five shots on each bull.  So each shooter will go through three targets.  Plus a fourth for practice/sighters.  Make sense?

We will also have a commercial SIUS unit set up for a "closest to center" match.

Finally----we have a solid date Saturday April 8th, 2017



We set up a crude website where we plan on putting more information and pictures of the event and have entry form at http://wisconsinairpistol.com

So far we have some highly skilled entries and several people who have never shot in an air pistol match before.  We intend to make this fun for everyone!  Do not forget about the closest to the center contest that will be going on at the same time!
