Sounds like it could be fun. :D

If using ISSF rules, it would pretty much eliminate all but those with bona-fide 10M pistols though, would it not? Or would allowances be made to include 13771740 and similar guns?

Would each match be a week in duration, or a month?

* The shooter must shoot one handed and use the same hand to support and trigger the gun.*

I need my both hands to shoot a pistol in a standing offhand position . :oops:

I would love to participate but the house is undergoing a reno and I wouldn't have an indoor range for several weeks.

Yes, great!
And for those concerned with the difficulty:
One hand pistol shooting is very possible to do with a little training.
It would give us incentive to:
1. Improve your skills
2. Enter in a type of competition practiced internationally.

Practically any gun is usable for this. Many people from CAF are shooting pistol at fun matches in Burlington. A postal match would be great training for those matches.

I imagine that to compile this monthly would be a lot of work! Are you offering to do it v76?
:?: :?: :?:

René don't get discouraged with the Wyatt Earp grip. It's like anything else after you practice it long enough you will wonder why you ever did it any other way. :wink:

Here is my first ten shots of today with one hand hold standing with my Gamo Compact at 33 feet .
There was a lots of shaking going on let me tell you .
I just had to try it .
I am lucky that all 10 pellets made it to the paper target . :lol:

And
My one hand hold standing at 33 feet with my HW45 .20 is not any better either . :cry:
But my one hand shooting should improve with some practice
and once the doctor takes out 8 stiches from the middle finger of my shooting hand .

That is great v76 count me in!

René: good first try, you actually got a couple 10s!

Re spring pistols etc.: There is one contest being run in England were they give points for diferent guns and stances, maybe we could use some of their great ideas, (giving the due credits naturally):
http://www.airgun-tec.co.uk/airgun-tec/ ... topic=75.0

Those rules seem to even out the differences between guns allowing everyone to participate!

:roll: Just an idea! :idea:

I like the idea but seems a little stiff with regulations. " open metal sights only ". My 46M has a non magnification BSA red dot and it`s not coming off. " One handed "- maybe half a match with a heavy pistol. I would like to see more of a fun factor as the Can. Grand Prix is enough serious for me.

I like the idea, but as lh mentioned, there is already a monthly full blown ISSF postal match at targetshooting.ca. That said, I do visit this site a lot more and it would probably get me off my butt and shooting more often :lol: so I'm all for it!

As much as I love 10m shooting though, it does have a "serious" factor and I kinda wish we had more informal airgun shooting matches... FT and Silhouette comes to mind, kinda like plinking competitions if you think of them that way :mrgreen:. It would be hard to do a postal FT match but how about silhouette? I think it would be nice to have a less formal / serious postal match alongside the ISSF one so that guys with optical sights / those who like 2-handed holds can shoot too... and more fun factor :D

The longest distance I can get is 31 feet that is a bit short of 10 meters. Is there any way to compensate for the 2 feet I'm short?

Here's the AIRGUN-TEC chart (modified) that would be used for the latter event:
Springers, add 10%.
Blowback CO2, add 10%
One handed grip, add 10%
Iron Sights, add 5%

Sounds good?

From that chart, that means that if someone were to compete with (for example) an FWB 65 with OEM open sights, they would get 25% added to their score?
Springers, add 10%.
One handed grip, add 10%
Iron Sights, add 5%

So assuming a fair to middlin' shooter, one could presumably encounter a score of 37.5/30 ? :?

FWIW, I ran an "e-match" on the AVA forum one winter in an attempt to encourage more folks to get their vintage airguns out and shoot them on a regular basis. Got lots of input from prospective participants, but in the end, what I ended up with was a plethora of classes, with only about one, maybe two per class - if even that for some matches. Everyone wanted a classification that suited them, but in the end, only a few actually participated. The scoring and recording of the matches was a PITA because many couldn't even figure out which class they should post their score in. Moral to the story - the more you try to please everyone, the less you are able to please anyone.

If you are going to take on the responsibilities, then you set the rules.
Those that wish to abide by the rules will participate, those who do not, will not.

Good ideas must be supported. I'm not ready for this kind of thing, but I'll give it a whirl.

Is there a compendium of rules available for download so I can find out what's what? edit - Okay, I see most of what I need to know is posted above.
