Service Pistol & Service Pistol Unrestricted

The match is exactly the same for both, with the only difference being that in Service Pistol Unrestricted, the match is not shot from the holster, and there are no minimum load restrictions. As well, there are different shooting positions, ranging from the prone position, sitting or kneeling, using the strong hand and the weak hand, shooting behind a barricade with support for the shooting hand, shooting totally unsupported and firing shots with one hand only. Times for the various stages are also different, from 165 seconds to fire 24 shots at 50 yards to 15 seconds to fire twelve shots at 7 yards.

25m Service (aka Short Barrel)

25 Metre service is an informal, friendly match shot with pistols. They can be revolvers or semi-automatics with the maximum barrel length of 4″ allowed. The match is shot at timed, turning targets, with 65 shots fired at distances that vary from 25 meters down to 7 meters, and is for calibres from .32 to .38/.357.

WA 1500

This is a 150-shot course where the maximum possible score is 1500 points. Like the other Service matches, WA1500 has varied distances, varied shooting positions (standing, standing supported, sitting, kneeling, prone), varied grips (two hands vs single hand, right vs left), and you can use either revolvers or semi-automatics.

WA 480

WA480 is a Service-style match of 48 shots, with distances of 3, 7, 15 and 25 yards. Quick and lots of fun! We have weekend matches and also a “Gentlemen’s match” on Thursday mornings. 

Social Service

A great way to learn about Service, and have some fun in a more relaxed atmosphere. Scheduled for the 5th Saturdays, 8am Range 6. Contact the discipline representative for more information.
