The main pieces of equipment needed to start shooting bullseye pistol are a semiautomatic .22 target pistol, two magazines, red dot scope (optional), gun box with spotting scope (optional), timer (optional), standard velocity .22 caliber ammo, eye and ear protection, targets, and some pistol cleaning supplies. This will get you started in the challenging sport of Bullseye Pistol Shooting.

Once you’ve got the right pistol and ammo combination, all you need are steady nerves, a disciplined trigger finger, and a rock-solid hold to compete in this challenging sport.

The course of fire is 20 shots slow fire, 20 shots timed fire, and 20 shots rapid fire all fired at 50 feet indoors at NRA Bullseye targets. A total of 60 shots per night with a possible score of 600-60X.

Come out and join in on the fun!
