Is it 75ft for all classes or can idiots with handguns stand closer to the target?


- Don't ask - don't tell!
I look forward to your entry.

My weapon of choice is a replica .44 cap and ball monster so judging how close I can get away with might be difficult. Powder and burning wadding leave such tell tale marks after all.


Is it unsporting to use a .22 target rifle

Ed - No - shoot away!

A 4.5" target at 25 yd isn't unreasonable for an iron sight handgun, although I don't expect the grouping to be pretty. I have people shoot a 6" disc at 20 yd after riding hard for about 15 minutes on a bicycle.
