I live in NYC and have been in a bullseye club since 1985.
I have been in an out of competition over the years (now out).

We have a 50 ft indoor range and are in Greater NY pistol league.
I'm currently on the E board for the club.

I have my fathers Hi Standard and at best am a 225 shooter in 22. We shoot 10,10,10 matches in 22, CF and 45 &  duello and international.

Hello,

I just joined up this morning.  I have been lurking here for a few months as I have slowly gotten back into the BE game.  Way back when and I mean a very long time ago I was a very active shooter. I made the decision to start shooting again a few months ago.  My goal and I know it is a goal that may not be in my reach, to shoot scores close to what I once did.

I'm 64 still have a very steady hand, eyes are not what they once were.  I never shot with a scope so I'm thinking with my limited sight acuity it will be just what I need.

I live very close to the club I joined; I'm thinking I will shoot 2 or 3 times a week and see what happens.

Still have my Pachmayr box, had to adjust the tray rails(lowered) to accommodate pistols with scopes.

I live in Western Massachusetts

I have learned a lot already from this site, saved me from a few finding out the hard way lessons already.

Bruce

BruceV, welcome! I’m new here too (June?) and am glad to see others join especially with experience…. Because I have none. Will make a mental note to follow you recapturing and exceeding your prior scores, and hope you’ll post advice, experience and new learnings from your return.

Hi everyone.  Joined the forum today as a new S&W Model 41 owner.  Have not shot it yet but will within the next few days.  Hoping to hear from you with advice on shooting the pistol.  I'm 73, retired and in warmer weather shoot outside almost on a daily basis.  I hate cold weather so only shoot indoor during our club league times and sometimes pay the fee to shoot indoors at our local gun store at off times.

Just wanted to say hi.

Howdy all! Like so many here, I drifted away from the sport due to family and career but, now that I am retired - and have moved out of md and we are much (MUCH!) happier in Western NC (close to Hickory, NC) AND joined a club with both an outdoor range and a 50-foot indoor “gallery” I am blowing the dust off myself as well as a pair of 41’s and Ruger 22’s. Just getting into dots. (I am 62 but, chose to undergo a lens replacement and whoa! What a game-changer that is!)

We are beginning to winter in Venice FL and I AM NOW IN SEARCH OF ANY LEAGUES - indoor or out - where I might meet and shoot with other precision-minded shooters in the area of FL from Sarasota down to Port Charlotte / Punta Gorda

Most of all, Thanks for the vast amount of knowledge and experience here - much respected and appreciated!

Longtime Lurker decided it was time to join. I shot High Power and Benchrest years ago, work got too Busy. Retired Now been trying to learn to shoot bullseye for about 3 years now,  this form has been a great source of knowledge. Practice 1 or 2 times a week at a local club, some very helpful members there also. I have learned a lot but still have a lot to learn!

New member here checking in from behind enemy lines in Southern Maryland. 

I shot Highpower for many years, on the All Guard team in the 90's, Distinguished High Master. Shot USPSA for many years, Grand Master. Shot PRS for years too. I'm 49 now, and my eyes are starting to fade a bit so thinking of taking up Bullseye to grab a Distinguished Rimfire title while I still can. So I'm saving for a vintage S&W 41 (love those old guns). 

Lots of great info on these forums, I appreciate the mature discussions.

New member here from central NC.   I've shot USPSA and IDPA for the last decade; that's been brought to a halt due to aggressive arthritis.  Bullseye has proven to be a nice change of pace: a definite challenge, but much more zen, and no sprinting.

It's also nice to be able to justify buying more 1911s every once in a while.

New Member introduction Topic - Page 7 Empty New from Germany

Post by Lueftl Sun Apr 17, 2022 5:50 am

Hello you all,
may I introduce myself, my name is Hans and I am shooting Pistol and Rifles here in Germany. Although our rules are a bit different to yours, I am convinced to be able to learn a lot, especially whenever it comes to the fundamentals.
We do have some strange regulations here, but if you are shooting actively it is not impossible to have some guns. But you do have to be a member of a club.

Our ranges are mostly 25m and 100metres, only. Some 300m ranges spread into, but the rest is airgun at 10metres.

I am also reloading.

Hope to find a lot of answers to questions I would not have, if I would not be reading in the forum  lol!

Kindest regards

Hans

Wolfgang, welcome!
Happy to see more and more of our friends from Europe joining the board. Are there competitions across Austria where you can shoot the 1911?

Post by Woofie Sat Jun 04, 2022 4:26 pm

Well, I was born, a long time ago, and raised in England, where even back then, there was zero public interest in guns. I fell ill with one of the childhood diseases, and my next door neighbour sent round some magazines. I don't know how they had them but there were two Guns & Ammo magazines in the pile, and well, the rest is history. I would ride the bus into Birmingham to visit the only bookstore that stocked G&A. The oldest G&A Annual I have is the 1969 edition (I was 14 then). Reading those old books is eye-opening today.
My first gun was a High Standard Victor in .22LR. Everyone else shot S&W Mod 41s but I had to be different New Member introduction Topic - Page 7 YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7 I still like that pistol and wish I still had it.
I was an aweful shot starting out. Two accomplished shooters, Colin Jackson (UK team member) and David Gregory took me under their wings, took me to matches and over time I got better. Eventually, a lot better.
I took to writing, really loved handloading but the one I remember writing most is the FIRST review of the Glock that ever appeared in a US shooting magazine. That was Guns magazine when Jerry Rakusan was the editor. Times gone by.
Sometimes we date ourselves....
Fast forward: I was exclusively a UIT/UK NRA target shooter, later police, service, long range, frequent competitor at Bisley Pistol xx events.  Moved to the US (AZ) in 1984-5.  Never found anywhere I wanted to target shoot here and it went by the board.  My eyes got worse over time and I could no longer focus a foresight properly. My right eye is now renewed with an astigmatism correction too, so I am giving it a go again.  I have a K38, Walther GSP .32SW Long, a Model 52, one of the last made.  All of these have anatomical grips made by Leslie Bowler in the UK.  I also have a Kimber Gold Cup .45ACP equivalent.  I do not own a target quality .22LR.  ATF would not let me import my Ziegenhahn.  I am thinking of a S&W M41, Buds has the 7" version, I'd rather a 5" frankly.  I have a SIG P210, would like to find a P210-6 target version.
Took myself to my private range last week and had a go at 25 yards on a  B-16.  Not having done this 30 years I was happy to hold 80% in the black with my K38.
Fun to find my candle stub, carbide lamp for sight blacking still in my pistol case.  I really want to persevere with iron sights, not much interested in optics for one-handed target shooting, honestly.
I probably lost you all a few paragraphs back but here I am....

Welcome! Go find yourself a good condition Victor and relive the glory days! Less of a crap shoot than getting a 41, at least the newer ones. You can still get parts from the reestablished Houston High Standard. 

Don't overlook dots yet. Some interesting apertures made by folks on this board allow you to focus on sight alignment...

New member, somewhat physically restricted on shooting (need to sit after 30min), but I got back into shooting/reloading right before the pandemic, at 86
I still shoot about 200 rds a week of 45, occasional 9mm, and every six months or so I will break out the 22.  Was a serious bullseye shooter 30 plus years ago.
live in Raleigh,NC
