I have been shooting in the North Idaho area in a match group for a couple of months. All of the other participants have fancy Volquardsens, Mark IVs, High Standards etc. I, on the other hand have been improving every week, working my scores up every week from the 180s to a 258 last week (25 yard course) shooting with a Sig Sauer 322, lol. Tomorrow I am picking up an Erma ESP 85a and can't wait for next Thursday to come. I gave it a test run and put all 10 rounds inside a 2" group at 50'. Super excited to step up my equipment.

Hello from Western PA. I’m a long time smallbore rifle 3P/4P shooter. Last winter I wanted to find another shooting sport to supplement my smallbore rifle shooting that didn’t require lugging around as much equipment. I started shooting bullseye summer of ‘22 with my Hammerli Trailside. I found a Walther GSP locally and picked that up mid summer. I’ve been shooting .22 only so far, but I’m looking to pick up a 1911 so I can shoot centerfire soon. I’ve been really enjoying the sport so far.

Greetings from Eastern Nebraska!

I started shooting EIC matches in 2020 and entered my first 2700 the following year.  I shoot indoor matches in Lincoln, NE during the winter and outdoor matches during the summer at Weeping Water, NE.

I've lurked on this forum for well over a year.  Between the tips/techniques I've picked up through the forum, Bruce Martindale's "Feeling Center" book and of course regular training I've been able to improve my 2700 scores by almost 500 points.

Looking forward to continued learning from other shooters and contributing where I can as an active member of the forum.

Hello from West Michigan.  I’m a recently retired guy who now has time to revisit competitive shooting.   The group at my local winter gallery league has been very helpful as I am new to this particular shooting sport. This forum is also a source of great information and I look forward to learning more as I try to improve my skills while simultaneously fending off the ravages of Father Time.

Hi all

Been shooting bullseye in-doors for a little more than a year now in SE PA. Started shooting pistols in general about five years ago. Have been trying to soak up the tips and pointers from here. Recently getting into reloading 45s so there’s another world of knowledge that I need to dive into. Thank you all for the amazing resources!

Hello Everyone!

I am new to the forum and to bullseye shooting.

I was fortunate enough to go to Camp Perry to experience my first go around at pistol bullseye, but I would not have been able to do it without the support of the community as a whole. My friends stepped up to loan me guns and really support me with great gear to be able to enjoy myself. 

I am a 17 Army veteran currently still in the National Guard. I previously worked in the firearms industry for almost a decade and always focused primarily on the tactical / action side of the house. With that being said, I rarely met my match out on the range and always felt that the USPSA / IDPA leagues were too "Sport" like for me to ever enjoy them. After Perry I really had a much better appreciation of pistol bullseye shooting. The utmost precise mapping out and dissecting of the multiple layers of both pre and post shot fundamentals is really a great way to push your limits and grow your skill. Yes, if I were to watch it on TV it would barely beat golf, but a completely different feeling out on the line.

I would say I am hooked.

Got a smoking deal I couldn't pass up on a 1911A1 Springfield while at Perry and then just picked up a Hammerli 215... wish someone would have warned me about the mags!! 

If anyone has some they are able to part with at a reasonable price, please let me know!

Welcome.  You might want to post a “Want to buy” add for additional mags for your 215 in the Bulkseye Gins and Gear For Sale/Wanted forum section.

Hello all.

I recently started my foray into Bullseye Shooting this year and am hooked!

Right now, I'm using my upgraded Taurus TX22 Competition model (used for Fun Steel), but I have a Ruger MKII that I recently acquired that will become my dedicated Bullseye pistol eventually.

Came here to find information, tips, tricks, and encouragement.

Not new to forums, just new to this one.
Thanks

I like to say I'm just an old 1911 driver. Started out shooting USPSA in the early 80's and did that for many years. My first bullseye matches were actually International style events (Centerfire, Standard Pistol, and Rapid Fire) at the old San Diego PD range. I also shot a few times at the long gone Black Mountain Training Center in Poway. I didn't shoot an NRA/CMP style event until 2020. I've had some health issues over the last couple of years which slowed me down quite a bit, but am starting to feel better so maybe I'll get to a local match in the fall.

Hello name is Stuart and I thought I would introduce myself to the group. I'm in Aliso Viejo CA and shoot at the local range, On Target mostly. 

I'm new to shooting handguns in general, I've only been shooting for about a year. I became a member at a local indoor range and have been going a couple times a week over the past year. I really like the idea of Bullseye shooting, but I have not competed yet. I probably will want to compete at some point, but I'd like to become more proficient before I do. 

I really like target shooting and the sort of Zen aspect to it. I enjoy the focus required to shoot well. I've been reading a lot on this forum, some books, and watching videos (mostly Brian Zins stuff on NRAPubs Youtube), and read a lot on bullseyepistol dot com as well. 

I started off shooting a Buckmark, then upgraded to a S&W Model 41. I also have a Kimber 1911 Stainless II Target. I'm using iron sights and plan to upgrade to a optic at some point, but I though it would be interesting to see how well I can do with iron sights before I upgrade. 

I've taken a pretty methodical approach to learning to shoot. Starting off with my 22, two-handed at 7 yards, then moving the target out to 25 yards (max at my range). I then started all over again trying to learn to shoot one-handed. I'm currently trying to get better one-handed at 25 yards with my 22. 

One of my issues to overcome is that I'm cross-eye dominant (Right hand/left eye). I've been experimenting with different methods based on what I've read here and have kind of settled on shooting right handed with some transparent stickers (Like Magic Dot, but from Avery labels) on the right lens of my glasses. I also typically wear bifocals, but had some glasses made with fixed focal distance set to my front sight I use when shooting. I also tried shooting left handed, but my left hand doesn't seem to be as steady and is weaker. 

Anyway, I've been a motorcycle racer for a long time and also work as a riding coach. I worked as a riding coach full time for about 10 years and still coach today (at 56 years old). I recognize the value in learning good technique from the start so that bad habits don't become engrained. I also understand the importance of focused practice and not just doing. One of my favorite sayings is "Practice doesn't make perfect, Perfect/focused practice makes perfect. In motorcycle racing you can spend a lot of money and tires wasting time riding around practicing bad technique. I would think the same applies to wasting a lot of ammo at the range or time dry firing, if you don't have some focus on what you are trying to improve. 

I look forward to participating in this forum, it's been a wealth of information to read through already.

 Anyway, hello and if any of my old friends are here say hi.

Hello from Central Wisconsin,
I've been a bullseye dabbler since 1994, when I went to Michigan Technological University and joined the Pistol Club.  Due to more than a few moves and jobs, a major home rebuild, and a couple of kids; I've been in and out of bullseye.  I'm currently out due to time constraints and a couple of injuries, but I still love the mechanical precision of the equipment, shooting the guns, and reading about the game.  I'm a Metallurgical Engineer by training, but I've been a Quality Engineer for the past 25 years, 20 years in precision machining and the last 5 years in electronic switching/HMI.

I've lurked here off and on over the years.  I'm here because I love reading posts about people's journey to better shooting, exotic target pistols, the gunsmithing tales, browsing the for sale items, maintenance tips & tricks on oddball pistols (I ordered obscure tools  for my 208 maintenance after reading a how-to on changing the FP)...all in a rather friendly environment.

Thank you all,

Toonces

What was your major?

We referred to that time as the glory years, as the Hockey team was consistently not good while we were there in ‘94-‘98.  They were good at brawling though…

I recently joined the forum. I retired from the Army and worked several more years as an Army civilian and am now fully retired and getting back into competitive shooting.  Mostly .22lr because it’s fun and affordable…..and easy on hands and ears…..getting older is a joy. I’m also an avid bluegrass nerd..,.banjo picker…and yup I’ve heard all the jokes. Look forward to learning from others on the site.
