Bullseye Competition Boxes Empty Bullseye Competition Boxes

I have been looking at the competition pistol boxes used in Bullseye but they are priced in the $200+ range.  My range bag seems to be alright for what I am doing.  Besides the box, it is recommended you get a scope.  I haven't seen the benefit of that lately also.  For the scope, you shoot a group and if it is off then make the adjustments.  Since I use a RDS, I don't see how a scope would help me.

Its for scoping your shots to confirm your shots and/or make sight adjustment. If you can see 22 holes at 50 yards with the naked eye I'm jealous. Your RDS won't help scope shots.

+1, in certain light conditions I have trouble seeing 22 holes with a scope!
A scope is a valuable tool!

Without a scope to check each shot, how to you KNOW your shot was on call? 

A scope is not for looking to see where the shot went, it's for confirming your shot call was correct or that you didn't see it well enough. 

And the best place to put a scope is on a gun box so you don't have to break position to check.

I know it's hard scoping a shot in the timed and rapid portion but it helps with slow fire!

I used spotting scope a lot for LR .22 rifle. It got to where I was scoping after every shot. I broke my really good B&L scope and had to shoot without one for a while. I don't regularly use a scope anymore. It is just reserved for sighting in. I figure that at BE distances, it has to be REALLY windy to effect grouping much (wind is more likely to move ME). I can't change what's been shot, and I know when I have shanked one vs when the shot was sweet.

Maybe, if I ever flirt with 2600, I'll start scoping. Till then, my groups aren't predictable enough to warrant the worry or expense.

Scoping SF, and sustained groups when possible reinforces call and response activities and helps you tune in on what you are doing right and well. All of a sudden the lights will come on and you'll remember what you did and you will do it again

I bought a scope from bass pro shops for $50 and it works fine for 50yd. It definitely helps to know where the shots are going to be able to make adjustments when shooting slow fire. The model is Pursuit 20-60x60. 
Another scope I have had a chance of using is the Athlon Talos which higher quality and has a better viewing lens.

For my box, I don't have anything fancy(yet). Just the factory box for my pistol and a plastic ammo box.

Here is a “Bullseye Box”, which is actually just a fancy spotting scope stand. It actually has become largely superfluous. I contend that scoping shots and groups has limited value. IF you change your sights based on your call on a single shot or even one magazine of 5 rounds, you stand a BIGGER likelihood of losing your zero for the match.

(Not my box, only for reference)

I own one but I can train without the spotting scope just as well. The way I train and shoot competitively is to establish a good ZERO on the pistol and only touch the sights if the ammo changes. If the shot is out “ in the weeds” it is far more likely that I put it there. So chasing a shot or a loose “group” is a good way to lose zero forever. If you think that this doesn’t work when you shoot at 50 then 25, it WiLL if you hold at center of mass with irons or with a RDS. The drop with bullseye ammo from 25 to 50 is about 2-2.5 inches. So I zero at 25 so my center of impact is at the top of the X-Ring. At 50 the shots are centered at the bottom of the X-Ring.

My advice is to get a larger Apache Box from Harbor Freight, pluck enough foam for your bullseye pistols AND a small decent pair of binoculars. Carry everything else including ammo, tools, scoring etc. in a small ”range bag”. And when you establish your zero, shoot at LEAST 25 shots. Then center the blob of shots.

A good box, strapped to the bench with a means of keeping the lid open (c-clamp) is nice to tuck behind in the wind.

When I first started several years ago, most had the boxes. So I made me one.
I tried not using a box, but I had so much loose stuff I went back.
It holds everything I need for matches including pistols. Ammo I carry in it's own plastic container.

Some use backpacks or toolboxes with wheels. They seem to get along fine.

Up to you either way.
