    I'm just curious how many types of "competitions" are out there. Aside from skeet and trap my club only has .22 gallery shoots and group that seems to shoot mostly 200 yd matches using mostly garands. Even shooting steel chickens seems to be lacking..


    There must be dozens but living in MA I'm lucky I can have a gun. :mad:

    USPSA Multi-gun
    IDPA
    Schutzen (SP?)
    NRA High power Rifle
    Axis vs Allied, Bolt and Semi-auto
    Sporting Clays
    5-stand Sporting clays
    Small bore target
    Small bore Sillouette
    Largebore Sillouette
    Handgun Sillouette (IHMSA)
    Black Powder Cartridge Rifle Sillouette
    Bianchi
    NRA Action Pistol

    Um, that's all that comes to mind..

    Had to add:

    Bowling pin
    Air Rifle Sillouette

    If there is a style of shooting out there you can bet that someone has come up with a competition for it....

    Ruger Rimfire Challenge
    There are some IPSC matches here in the US--slightly different divisions
    and rules than USPSA
    3-Gun and Multi-gun matches---there are a BUNCH of different formats and rules.
    Are they still doing Sportsman's Team Challenge?
    Can't believe nobody has mentioned ICORE!
