Q. What is the cost of the Niagara Falls Revolver Club's Safety Course for new members ?
Q. What is "Bullseye" shooting ?
A. One of the shooting disciplines found at the Niagara Falls Revolver Club is the NRA Gallery Pistol Course (Bullseye). This is comprised of three individual stages. Each stage firing 10 rounds, at a distance of 50 ft; with varying amounts of time allowed to complete each stage.
The standard 30-shot course of fire begins with 10 shots of slow fire. In the slow-fire stage you're given 10 minutes to fire 10 shots. The 10-ring on the target is 23 cm. (3/4") in diameter.
After the slow-fire course is complete, then 10 shots are fired in five-shot strings with 20 seconds allowed for each five- shot string. The 10-ring on this target is 46 cm. (1 3/4") in diameter.
Unlike other handgun sports that use a hand-held timer, in bullseye each target rotates to and from the shooter to regulate the timing. As the shooters prepare to fire, only the edge of the target is visible. The target rotates to face the shooter when shooting is to begin. The target rotates away when time has expired.
The third and final stage is Rapid Fire. It is identical to Timed Fire; the same size target, but with only 10 seconds for each five shot string.
The shooters score, out of a possible 300, is the sum of his or hers three targets.
