Honestly, 9mm is not that popular in the sport. 22, 45 with some 32 and 38 for centerfire. Most shooters use the 45 for the centerfire stage. The Beretta M9 (accurized) used to be popular and you'll see some 1911's in 9mm but not common.

Welcome.  To answer your question would take a while, but a 9mm has never been very popular even amongst dedicated service member bullseye shooters.  One reason is that each pistol seems to be a law unto itself on what ammunition it likes.  Reloading recipes are all over the map unlike 45 ACP.  If you are going to shoot 9mm in bullseye I would look at hammer fired pistols because the triggers are better and can be tweaked to good safe triggers.  Proven candidates are CZ-75, Beretta 92, and 1911 platforms. 

 A LOT shoot 45 and 22 for two good reasons.  First, the game has a 45 stage where you MUST shoot a 45.  Since the 45 is also center fire, it does double duty as a “Centerfire” pistol.  The 1911 platform is king here because of the footprint it has in US history especially bullseye history.  Second, they’re easier and FAR more forgiving than most other calibers on loading match ammo.  So much so, that there are more-or-less “standard” bullseye target loads.  So much so that I can safely say that if your pistol doesn’t shoot 4.2 Bullseye powder and a 185 Grain HP bullet into an X-ring sized group at 25 yards the gun needs work.  

So, if I were to suggest a 9mm for bullseye, I’d HIGHLY recommend that you get a Springfield  1911 Loaded Target in 9mm.   But you’d be FAR better served by the same make and model in 45.

new member Empty Thanks for the 9mm info

I live near Stoughton's Golf Course a couple miles north of Clearview Mall.  I've been shooting with Moraine Conservation and Sportsman Club for about 2.5 years.  I've shot in 2 - 2700 matches, didn't do great in either but enjoyed the experience.  I have a Springfield 1911 45, that John Vincent accurized for me, that I used for center fire and 45 matches.  

I do have a Marvel 1911 22 lr conversion with an Ultradot and 8 mags I'd like to sell.

Thanks
