Promote Bullseye, Raise Funds

Post by Slartybartfast on 3/29/2018, 11:06 am

First topic message reminder :

I responded in another thread and thought feedback on my idea and ideas from others in a separate thread might be interesting.

In the other thread, the growth of 3-gun, IPSC, and the like and the slowing of Bullseye participation was of course brought up. lyman1903 suggested that as the participants in these contests age they might find the pace of bullseye something that suits them and a good way to continue competing when they can no longer keep up.

So, I thought this would be a good way to increase interest:

Have a reduced Bullseye style competition alongside 3gun and IPSC events.
Run a two handed  timed fire CF stage (something they'll be more familiar with than slow fire) and a slow fire one-handed stage. Set the targets at 50ft with official targets. Follow the same equipment divisions as the main event.
This would introduce them to the targets, the precision, and one-handed competition while letting them leverage the most of what they are comfortable with. All while giving them another outlet for bragging rights for the day.
Alongside the shooting lanes, have a prominent full display of the requirements, results, and records of full Bullseye competition. Include examples of the official targets and the distances they're shot at. With the schedule of local events and contacts for local Bullseye groups.
Hand out prizes, even just bragging rights for the CF precision portion at the main event and the competitive among them are likely to make the precision portion a permanent fixture and might migrate to full bullseye competition.
And, really take advantage of people's competitive nature and raise funds. Charge a couple dollars for each set of targets fired and have a competitors best score stand for the competition. The really competitive might drop a good deal of money to try to remain on top of the standings if they see their position drop.

In the 2017 results he came in 133rd just after Rob Kovach.  Leatham shot a 334-3X

That's great. The pitch becomes-- Shoot the Bullseye league, consider it training for your Combat Pistol league.


What a strange coincidence. I went to the range for training this morning, and who walked in but a club board member (not the President). So I gave him the pitch about Brian Enos, and how much a Bullseye league would help everyone that shoots Combat Pistol. Told him the basic fundamentals of pistol shooting are extremely important in Bullseye, for without them you'd be lucky to hit paper one handed. How these fundamentals are fully transferable to any and all pistol shooting. Reminded him I was the guy that shot in last years Combat Pistol league for the first time and won it. Told him no one would have to do a thing, I'd run the entire show. Heck, I made myself sick cause I sounded like a used car salesman. Lo and behold, he said he'd bring it up at the next board meeting. Even though I doubt it will happen because the club President hates Bullseye, at least I tried.

one of the best ways to get new shooters in any match is to just relax,  be friendly, and let the guys shoot what they brung at first,

just as another poster mentioned about the run n gun guy shooting a glock at a match


the club I belong to,, RRPC.org, does it for high power, or used to when I shot,
show up with a 'substandard' or not really conforming to the sport gun and as long as you practice the safety fundamentals,  you are welcome
at least for a match or 2,

we picked up a good handful of new shooters,  that ended up buying all the equipment and a few moved up to the state team

I know that Rob Leatham, "The Great One" of USPSA, has shot the President's 100 match a few times, but I don't know what his scores have been like.  Does anyone here know?

Rob has said many time he shoots bullseye for the challenge.  I think he has made the p100

Quote from SSUSA article.
Rob: So, the reason I shoot bullseye isn’t because I’m out there to prove anything to anyone, it’s because I see it as another white whale. It makes me angry I can’t do it, and that is why I keep at it, day in and day out. That might not make sense to some people, but I see the challenge."
