I often shoot 3 or 4 different guns on a simple range trip. If I didnt rotate the guns some would get lonely. LOL

for decades now, guys have shot the centerfire stage with .45, so that they only need 2 pistols. I suppose you could shoot a .45 in the .22 match,if you want to suffer a handicap.

in his column in G and A mag, Bill Jordan once called on the guys in the budding IPSC combat matches to "come swim in the BIG pool", (ie, shoot bullseye matches) and my immediate thought was". lots more people play golf", should I waste my time and money on that, too?" Today, i no longer regard IPSC as serious defensive training (as I did back in the 70's) it's still a good exposure to fast draw, fast shooting, movement, some use of cover, and shooting under STRESS.

stress is what bullseye shooting escapes. its great training for scoped rifle matches too, where breath contol and heartbeat can be felt and controlled thru mental disipline.
btw...45 is not allowed in 22 match. too loud and is not permitted.

I excelled in the three gun bullseye matches. Just before I retired (20 years) from the Navy 1975, I made the Expert level. I was in Navy aviation. AMSC RETIRED with AC wings.
But, you did not need actually three different guns. One had to be rim fire and the other two center fire. I used my Match .45 in all my center fire matches.
In 1974 I was DI shooting Instructor at the US Naval Academy at Annapolis.
I medaled three times with the .45

I never have shot in a bullseye match but it sounds like fun. I lack a 45 but a 45 long colt isn't hard to find around here.

I shot in Bullseye matches until the Deity challenged Californians closed down the ranges.

I now live in Nebraska and can't find a local match in which to compete. I would very much like to shoot in such matches; the discipline required is high and one who can shoot one handed pistol can move off into pretty much any other handgun discipline.
