I have been thinking for a while that we should have a semi-auto forum pistol match. My idea would be that we could use this target http://www.reloadbench.com/pdf/files/LargeTarget.pdf printed on 8 1/2" X 11" paper. Shoot at 15 yards. Make it 8 shots-that way the guys with the single stack .45's would be able to compete without having to stop to reload.
I would think we should leave it open to all makes with the only limitation being no lasers, optics or rests. Then post your results back here so we can all have a little healthy competition. Of course this is just what I thought of off the top of my head.

If ya'all would be interested in doing this please post & let me know. Also if anyone thinks we should do it differently please tell me. I am open to suggestion I just wanted to get the ball rolling because I think this would be fun.
Okay since this is May 2nd I was thinking we could set the end of the month (May 31st) as the deadline for posting targets. That way everyone will have plenty of time to shoot one & get it posted.

Thanks guys I added no rests & deadline of May 31st to the original post.

Mike ... I'm in (looks like a good challenge). My only suggestions (to make it as fair as possible) would be to seperate the match into the following 3 divisions:
1. Center fire with barrel length 4" and over
2. Center fire with barrel length less than 4"
3. Rimfire semi-autos (or eliminate rimfire from the mix if you prefer)

Stickied it for you .... lets see where this goes !

I would like to suggest that you find a target with a smaller black area (maybe just the 10 ring). It makes the holes much easier to see, and it allows a 6 oclock hold on the black.

If you'd rather not ... no problem.

I always like the 3" red or blue dot on 8 1/2 X 11 but whatever, I'm all in on this one!

......And I just looked again, it's five feet shorter than I normally shoot, excellent!

OK-we can divide it up similar to how Buck suggested
Centerfire-3 1/2" & up
Centerfire-Barrels shorter than 3 1/2"
rimfire-is out

Rev the only reason I don't want to change the target now is because some folks have probably already downloaded & printed it. If someone wanted to put a small orange sticky dot in the center I wouldn't see any problem with that as long as the scoring lines aren't obscured.

Please when ya'all take pics of your target try to help make it easy to see the holes. It might help to put some white paper under the black to make them show up.

Also if you are shooting something less than 4" barrel please let me know so I can make sure I put it in the right category. There are some makes of gun I'm not familiar with.

I will try to tabulate results every week for those who are interested.

I think you're making this a lot more difficult than it needs be. One category is all we need. I'd say centerfire semiauto ONLY .... for the centerfire auto forum. If someone wants to do a rimfire contest ... fine, put it in the rimfire section. Technically there shouldn't even be revolvers since this is the semi-auto forum. I'd think that each type of gun should be in the forum section that it belongs in. It's not fair to compare revolvers, CF semis, and RF semis.

Too many rules, sections, types, etc, etc will make the contest meaningless.

JMO.

Good...semi-auto contest...Was wondering if the Ruger P95 was considered under 4 in. I know it's listed as 3.9 but still. :wink:

Inches don't matter ... any brand ... centerfire semi-auto ... no lasers ... no optics .... no rests.

The only rules according to the OP.

Okay how about this then. We say
No Rimfires-Centerfire Only
Then say we make the barrel length division
3 1/2" inches & up
Everything below 3 1/2"
That way it is pretty much everything from a compact up in one division
subcompacts & mouseguns in the other & leave it at that.
