Bullseye Pistol Program

Welcome to the South River Gun Club’s Bullseye Program! We generally shoot on the second Sundays starting in March and running through November. We schedule Saturday matches in May and to accommodate for Easter as needed. You can find specific match dates on our Event Calendar linked below.

New to the sport or just curious? Bullseye Pistol is arguably the ultimate in outdoor precision pistol shooting. All Shooters are welcome!

For further information, contact the Match Director, John Bowers via phone at (770) 787-7949 (before 2100 hours please) or email john_bow@bellsouth.net

Match Procedures and Rates

Each match begins with a welcome, announcements and safety briefing for all participants. On occasion, Sacagawea coins are awarded for hitting a called score or scoring a ‘100’ with 10x on any given target. While three guns are common, many participants use their .45’s for the Centerfire Match. If participants are unconcerned for posting official scores, a .22 may be used for all three stages. Each stage takes about an hour to complete depending on scoring and alibi strings. All participants break for lunch after the Centerfire Match.

Matches are comprised of three 90 round sub matches in .22 caliber, Centerfire, and .45 caliber. Revolvers or Pistols may be used with slight differences in allowable trigger weights. Please refer to the NRA handbook on Precision Pistol for an in-depth description of equipment requirements. The firing position is standing, one hand, unsupported.

Match fees are $20 for registered matches. Registration opens at 9:00AM. Matches begin at 10:00AM. In November, we finish the season with a turkey shoot!
