ANY HANDGUN BY
The John Browning is a match probably unequalled anywhere. It is a collection of four unique shooting disciplines rolled together with equal opportunities for all, whether you’re a bullseye shooter, a combat shooter, a plate shooter or an action shooter you can a find a game to excel in. Your total course of fire consists of a 30 round national match bullseye course fired at 25 yds. A 20 plate steel plate match with 5 plates at 10 yds, 5 plates at 15 yds, 5 plates at 20 yds and 5 plates at 25 yds. A 30 round combat course fired from the holster at 7 and 15 yds. A running man or “mover” at 25 yds finishes the game.
Firearms & Equipment:
Any safe, centerfire handgun may be used. A safe holster and at least 3 mags or 2 speed loaders will be needed. 30 rounds will be needed for bullseye, 20 rounds for plates, 30 rounds for combat and 10 rounds for the mover.
Catagories and Classes:
Two categories will be formed; Iron sites and optic sites, however, as the rules for bullseye allow any sites, all competitors may use either iron or optic sites for bullseye. In all cases, shooters must use one pistol for the Combat, Steel, and Mover stages and that pistol decides whether you’re iron or optic for the match. ( 2 guns may be used to complete the match). Within each category the Lewis System will be used to form up to 3 classes. A minimum of 10 shooters in a category will be required to form a “B” Class and a minimum of 18 shooters to form a “C” class. In the event of an uneven number of shooters in either category, the lowest class will be enlarged first as required.
