The Service Pistol event uses 9mm and ·38/·357 pistols & revolvers. It consists of 90 shots fired at distances varying from 50 to 7 yards with the pistol holstered at the commencement of each series. It is a match that involves long distance precision shooting and fast shooting on multiple targets.
The Service – Unrestricted event uses 9mm, .32 and ·38/·357 pistols & revolvers. It has the same course of fire as Service match, with a couple of differences.
1. The firearm does not have the same restrictions as Service match, in relation to weight, length of barrel, size of grips etc.
2. There is no minimum power factor for ammunition. Service match requires a 120,000 power factor ammunition.
3. Holsters are not used in this match. For the most part, the series begins with the firearm held in both hands at 45 degrees.
This is a fantastic match, that has the same course of fire as service match, but is much easier to shoot due to the eased restrictions on the firearm, the ammunition and the start position.
