Bulls Eye League
Wilson Hill Pistol Club reserves Wednesday evenings during winter months for its members-only .22LR bullseye league team. All WHPC members are encouraged to give this sport a try – it is excellent for developing trigger control and can improve other shooting ability.
WHPC bullseye team shooters use their own .22LR revolvers or semi-automatic pistols. The distance is 50’ from a one or two hand stance , and the 10-ring is almost as small as the bullet. A red dot optic without magnification is recommended; it must not project an image (laser). Any .22LR ammunition is permitted (no magnum). All WHPC range rules are enforced – no exceptions.
More Bullseye Information
Will the .22LR handgun you already own be adequate with an optic? Beginners should be aware that expensive Olympic- or International-style .22LR pistols do not have a significant effect on scores for most shooters – scores are largely determined by mental focus and body. So we suggest you initially observe or use what you have and learn about the sport. Then consider whether to buy a used setup, or a “reasonably priced” new pistol & optic (with optional grip and trigger upgrades later). Make new friends, enjoy the challenge, develop your skills, and finish a couple of seasons before considering additional spending.
WHPC bullseye team shooters enjoy being together and helping one another improve. Interested WHPC members are encouraged to observe or try it. Note that WHPC is a small indoor private range and not handicap accessible, but lane #4 can accommodate a wheelchair.
Bullseye season schedule details are posted on the WHPC web calendar. On 1st Wednesday of each month, shooting is suspended while the club meeting is in progress – so plan accordingly. And check the WHPC web calendar for weather cancellations.
For more information, contact Roger Retzke or other WHPC board member. We hope to welcome you to the WHPC bullseye league team.
