ISSF Pistol Shooting
International Shooting Sport Federation
CDPC holds several ISSF pistol shooting competitions and one rifle comp on ranges 1 and 2. On range 1 and 2, all competitions are 25m on remote controlled turning targets.
centre fire semi autos and revolvers up to .38 calibre and .22 rim fire semi autos and revolvers are eligible for the competition, which is run simultaneously for both calibres and held up to world championship levels.
The competition is divided into two distinct parts, each using different targets.
In part 1, shooters must fire 3 groups of 10 shots, with 5 shots being fired followed by a reload under RO supervision. Each shooter has 5 minutes to accurately shoot 5 shots from a free-standing, single-handed position.
The target for this competition has a diameter of 500mm and is marked from 1 on the outside to 10 at the bullseye, which measures 50mm in diameter. Target face is white with a black section starting at the 7 ring.
Part 2 of the competition involves a rapid fire stage, in which the shooter must fire 30 individual shots. Each shot must be fired within 3 seconds of raising the arm from a 45 degree angle. An RO controls the sequence of this section, using timed turning targets with a dwell time, meaning the targets are closed for 7 seconds.
This competition is exclusively for .22LR calibre semi autos and revolvers, and is held to world championship standards. The shoot comprises three timed stages.
In Stage 1, participants fire 20 shots in two groups of 10 with a reload under the supervision of a Range Officer (RO) after every 5 shots. Each group must be completed within 150 seconds.
Stage 2 also involves firing 20 shots in two groups of 10, with a reload under RO supervision after every 5 shots. However, in this stage, participants have only 20 seconds to complete each group.
The final stage, Stage 3, requires participants to fire 20 shots in two groups of 10 with a reload under RO supervision after every 5 shots. Each group must be completed within 10 seconds.
The competition employs a 500mm diameter target with a white face, marked from 1 on the outside to 10 at the bullseye. The bullseye measures 50mm in diameter and is situated within a black section starting at the 7 ring.
.22 RIFLE COMPETITION
CDPC has created its own .22 rifle competition that requires shooters to use .22LR Standard rounds only. The competition takes place at a distance of 25m using specially designed targets, and participants have the option to use either scopes or iron sights.
During the competition, shooters must fire a total of 50 rounds. The first 25 shots are fired from a standing supported position at 5 bullseye targets. Each target is marked from 1 to 5, with the outside ring measuring 90mm in diameter and the bullseye measuring 20mm in diameter.
Next, participants fire 15 shots from a standing unsupported position at a single bullseye target. The target is marked from 1 to 10, with the outside ring measuring 200mm in diameter and the bullseye measuring 40mm in diameter.
Finally, shooters must fire 5 shots from a standing unsupported position at each of 3 feral animal silhouettes. The silhouettes have score lines ranging from 1 (outside) to 10 (center) and are designed to follow the contours of each animal and its optimal humane kill shot.
There is no set sequence or time limit for this competition, allowing participants to shoot at their own pace and convenience.
Classic Pistol is a competition that features classic handguns of .38 to .45 calibre breech loading. The pistols used in this event should have no significant modifications.
The competition is run similarly to the 25 meter Centre Fire / .22 comp as described above, with stage one comprising of 2 groups of 10 shots and stage two with 20 shots. It should be noted that this competition is separate from the 25m comp.
Classic Pistol is a unique competition to Australia.
