Pistols and their Divisions Whatever we do here – we’ll be dammed I suspect…. The LBR and LBP situation is similar to current GRSB and GRCF for the seven classified events we run on the circuit. Classes of X, A and B are applied to the pistols. Any sights can be used on pistols but its been suggested that […]

Classifications for 2015 We have not really looked at shifting the classification breakpoints in Gallery Rifle for about four or five seasons. However the last couple of years have shown that its getting slightly crowded up at the top of some events. The point of breaking events into classifications is to allow shooters of varying abilities to […]

Steels at the AAW

No comments

Steels at the AAW Some feedback from the community requested from old Slky Smooth on what you want from the Steels at the AAW in October. Range hire is based on presumed 100% occupancy. As such the cost base for the shoot will assume that if we weren’t there, other shooters could and would be […]

Service Rifle definitions for The Phoenix Meeting and Gallery Rifle and Pistol Meetings – 2014 The definitions of the Service Rifle classes have been changed to reflect the concerns of competitors that the existing classes were defined too broadly. The effect was to make it difficult for competitors to be sure that they were competing […]

Target Graffiti or Sensible Anticipation? Feedback on this unanimously in the direction of NOT allowing competitors to adorn their targets with all and sundry. In fact its been pointed out this is just a natural extension of the general principle that competitors should not be interfering or touching their targets in any way at all. Target numbering […]

Bianchi Barricade Firing Area A fair bit of discussion of the Bianchi Barricade Firing area and its absolute boundaries which was posted back in November.  Bearing these comments in mind, associated with some off-line discussion, the decision has been made to essentially keep the ruling as is but ensure it is more consistently defined. As […]

There have been some fairly minor changes this year: Muzzle Loading Pistol America Match has been dropped Muzzle Loading Pistol Grand Aggregate reduced to 5 events Universities Team Grand Aggregate […]

The Multi Target Match A fair bit of feedback on the Multi-Target walkdown proposal. Most of it in favour of at least having the option. Even if your friendly match director does not take the opportunity of the potential flexibility this offers you can only lead a horse to water…. However flexibility does bring complexity […]

303 Rifle Events


303 Rifle Events At the Phoenix Meeting there are events specifically for the .303 rifle. The .303 Rifle class is at present ‘Any .303 Rifle’. Its probably hard to justify the fact that it is fair to have people shooting ‘As issued Rifles‘ competing alongside  shooters who have fitted telescopic sights and bipods. In fact it […]
