This will be our first POCKET PISTOL CHALLENGE
We will be trying our new rotating target set-up and this will be a super fun day with loads of learning
30 rounds per session
This is how Pocket Pistol does it:
- You first shoot the “Precision” series –
- ten shots at 15m within the 100 seconds allowed this – includes the compulsory reload – the targets face you for 100 seconds before turning away, thus signaling the end of the “precision” series.
- After scoring and patching your Precision target,
- Reloading time is allowed between each string
- Now the targets start controlling you
- they are set to face you for two seconds and then turn away out of view for five seconds (2F:5A).
- you move to the 10 metre mark and fire two more 5-shot strings at the rate of one shot for each 2-second exposure of the target.
- Now you move down to 7 metres for some “double-taps”: for this series the target turns to face you only three times for each of your two 5-shot strings.
- You may choose your own firing sequence – the most common sequence is probably 1+2+2; but 2+2+1,but 1+1+3 is not permissible!
- However you do it, you fire your full load of 5-shots within the three 2-second exposures of the target; and then repeat the exercise.
- So a 30-shot Pocket Pistol event comprises three series of IO-shots each.
- The “Precision” shoot at 15 metres;
- faster single shots with the target turning at 10 metres and
- finally the double-taps at 7 metres.
- Your weapon must be held down at 45 between shots.
- The maximum possible score is 300 – you can score up to 10 points for each of your 30 shots.
Pocket Pistol was never intended as a substitute for Practical Pistol, Combat or video situation shoots.
