Wanganui Pistol Club

Classic / Service

Classic shooting gives the opportunity to use pistols which have made some historical impact.

The match is shot at 10 and 20 metres, on two targets, over varying time limits. It is fast moving, requires accuracy and quick responses.

The club shoots this fairly regulary.

Service shooting is a real challenge shot over distances from 10m to 50m using a variety of shootings styles. Parts are shot prone, sitting, behind barriers and from below the shoulder.

A wide variety of pistols can be used in four main divisons and is growing steadily more popular.

This video shows what is on offer.

Speak to Byrd if you are interested in either of these disciplines. Classic is shot on the third Sunday of each month.
