The NRA Gallery Match

The NRA Gallery Match

Here is information about the NRA Gallery Course I have been looking for. Due to my disability, I need to shoot indoors where a pulley system brings the target in and sends it out.

Some information is dated...

The first section is from the NRA rule book.
The second section is about a postal match some years ago. I would be interested in a postal match as well.
The third section is the Sequence of Commands for the NRA Gallery Course.

=========================================================

From: NRA Pistol Book pdf Section Seven
http://compete.nra.org/documents/pdf/compete/RuleBooks/Pistol/pistol-book.pdf

Gallery Course (May also be fired outdoors) (50 feet or 20 yards)

Code:
                        Time per 10
Range    Type Fire    Shot String    Strings    Target
50 ft    Slow         10 minutes      1           B-2
20 yds   Slow         10 minutes      1           B-4


                     Time per 5
Range    Type Fire   Shot String     Strings    Target
50 ft      Timed     20 seconds       2           B-3
           Rapid     10 seconds       2           B-3
20 yds     Timed     20 seconds       2           B-5
           Rapid     10 seconds       2           B-5


Single Stage Course
Any number of strings (10 shot at 50 yards slow fire, or 5-shot at the timed or rapid fire) fired at a single distance as specified in the conditions of the match and in the regular time allowed for that type of firing.

NRA "Gallery" postal match course in .22 and/or .45.

http://www.northeastshooters.com/vbulletin/threads/17566-NRA-quot-Gallery-quot-course-in-22-and-or-45

The last try at a postal match got too complicated and so never happened... I'm going to keep this one simple:

This shoot will run from April to September (6 months), one set of targets each month.

NRA "Gallery" course in .22 and/or .45.

Target #1: NRA 50ft Slow Fire (B-2)
Slow fire is 10 rounds fired in 10 minutes. (EDIT: use two targets for .45, 5 shots each so that the individual shots can be scored properly.)

Target #2: NRA 50ft Timed and Rapid Fire (B-3)
Timed fire is 10 rounds fired in two 5-shot strings -- 20 seconds each string.

Target #3: NRA 50ft Timed and Rapid Fire (B-3)
Rapid fire is 10 rounds fired in two 5-shot strings -- 10 seconds each string.

Rules:
You can shoot either or both .22 and .45acp.
Please note if you are using iron or optical (red dot) sights.
You supply the targets. (see above links for reference. Any brand, as long as they are the correct format.)

Targets may be found at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NBAXJDM/_e ... U4F8G3ARUH


Scoring: NRA Rules Apply
Targets must be:
If shooting by yourself, mail targets to me to be received by the last day of the month. Please mark Timed or Rapid Fire on the appropriate target. Or:
If shot with another paid NES member, the other member should score and PM to me the results. Please report each target's score separately (don't forget the X's and who's scores you are reporting).
Eligibility: You must be a paid NES member to play this time. For info see here.
Winner at the end of the year to be determined by best average score (but you have to shoot 4 sets minimum in that caliber to win).


When shooting a postal match:
Practice as much as you'd like
Decide to shoot the match (I don't recommend shooting it after a long practice session).
Shoot the WHOLE MATCH (all 3 targets) in one session in succession.
Once you've shot the match, that's it. You can't go back and reshoot because you flinched on the third shot in slow fire, or whatever. The idea is to try to simulate some match pressure. Honesty is required here.


First targets are due BEFORE May 1.

Let us know if you are in by choosing the from the poll above (you can multi select).

Good Luck!!

27. Check all guns on the line. After the last rapid fire string, competitors may box their guns and remove them from the line. When the line is clear, call for target changers. The target changers will reset the range for the next relay by hanging slow fire targets and this cycle will repeat until the match concludes. For additional information concerning the proper commands, refer to the official NRA Pistol Rule Book, section 10.



Any refire target shall be marked with the number of shots which should appear on the target. For example, if an alibi was called with 3 shots fired, there should be 13 shots on the target. Be sure to tell the target changers which targets are refire targets and also that they have a marker or pencil to mark the target.

The Bullseye Range Commands app may help practicing, since you can start the app and it will give all the proper commands on time. It's free so worth a look perhaps if you've an iOS device. Not sure if there is an android equivalent.

There's an app for ISSF events as well that gives the commands.
