I could not figure out how to enter the poll as each item requires a separate answer

distance = 10 meters
target = Regulation ISSF 10 meter AP target
caliber = .177 (I don't know of a match AP that is chambered for .22)

Bill:

I posted a simple 10-meter / 10-shot SPP Pistol Shooting Match in the SPP Pistol forum.  And yes, I would certainly be interested in participating in other pistol matches as well.  For pistols, I think 10 meters is a good distance because members can shoot indoors or outdoors, giving much more time to participate after work and in the evenings.  I also invite anyone not sure if they really want to shoot pistol matches to participate in the 10-M / 10-Shot match.  Pretty simple and quick to shoot, it is intended to give us an idea where we stand compared to other GTA members who participate.  Thanks.

problem is which match to shoot

TC
The problem is which match to shoot ?#!@?  rifle, steroid rifle, SSP, CA/PCP rifle, co2 AP, match pistol,
Since I'm primarily an AP shooter, I think I will shoot the co2 and match pistol matches.  Since my AP is a co2 match pistol I qualify for both matches at the same time.  :-)

Understand.  But ten shots with a pistol at 10 meters might take 10 minutes.  I intended to make it very easy to compete in this one in addition to any other you might want to shoot.  And for the 10 meter matches, when you are shooting, heck, just change the target and pick up the next air gun.  I think I could easily shoot three or four 10-meter matches in an evening, if the number of shots per match is 20 or less.

Well, not a match pistol, but I just traded off my Gamo 440 on an RWS P5 Magnum.  Should be here some time next week, maybe I can get into some trouble next weekend :-).  The last air pistol I tried was a Crosman 1377, lousy sights and I just could not get into all that pumping.  So hopefully the P5 will work out better.  Later.

Not bad for several years away from the firing line.
But man is my right arm sore, I'm out of shape.  I'm glad it wasn't a 60 shot match, I would not finish.

I'll have to do the AR matches later today or tomorrow.
