Service Pistol is conventional outdoor pistol shooting from 25 to 50 yards. All shooting is unsupported and with one hand only. As a marksmanship challenge and test of pure fundamental shooting skills Service Pistol has no peer. Competitors must train to deliver machine rest accuracy with everything from .22s to hard-recoiling .45s using optics and iron sights. Many of the events also require the use of service pistols with iron sights, accurized and modified slightly. The National Match Course is based on original pistol training courses and consists of the following:
- Slow Fire. 10 shots Standing (One Hand) on the B-6 target at 50 yards in ten minutes.
- Timed Fire. 10 shots Standing (One Hand) on the B-8 target at 25 yards. Shooters fire two strings of five rounds in twenty seconds each.
- Rapid Fire. 10 shots Standing (One Hand) on the B-8 target at 25 yards. Shooters fire two strings of five rounds in ten seconds each.
I used to shoot for the 90t ARCOM in San Antonio on the Pistol Team, and was a civilian pistol shooter also.
This was back in the 1980’s. Is there any one around from that time?
