    IR50/50 Bullseye Pistol range

    Post  justanobody on Fri May 01, 2009 11:30 am

    I would like to get a decision on using the 45 Colt on the Bullseye pistol range. It is not listed as bullseye caliber but would it be okay.
    Of course if a person wants to get technical the only sanctioned NRA bullseye pistol calibers are the 22 rf, 38cal centerfire and the 45 acp.
    Since the 44 Mag is listed at this range what would be wrong with the 45 Colt that is not listed?
    Just don't want to get jumped on with both feet.

    Thanks

    I have been asked this question before and my answer was/is. The 45 long colt cartridge is allowable on the bullseye stations at the IR5050 range.
    It is not as powerful or as loud as the .357 and 44 mag.

    The bullseye cal. rule was put in to prevent 454 casul, 500 s/w, 50 ae etc. because of noise and other issues. These calibres should be fired on the main rifle or IDPA/plinking range.

    I hope to have a Grand Opening this month for the new pistol range. We are behind schedule due to the weather. At that time (hopefully) most of our issues with the "shared" range will be solved ;As there will be no sharing of the two ranges...each discipline will have it's own range. There will be no pistols on the rimfire range and no rifles on the pistol range.

    Be Safe,

    Wayne,

    Would just like to clarify - is it the intention that we would not be able to use .22 rifles on the plinking range? It allows us an entirely different type of shooting than the 50 yard target range.

    Thanks so much...

    Any firearm legal to shoot at Kettlefoot is allowable on the IDPA/Plinking Range.

    Many of our shooters practice for 3 gun matches at the plinking area. This is also allowed.

    Be safe!
