HomePistol: NRA Conventional

NRA 2700 Precision Pistol


Precision Pistol, also known as conventional pistol and formally called Bullseye, is a shooting sport in which participants shoot handguns at paper targets at fixed distances and time limits. Emphasis is on accuracy and precision.
Precision Pistol specifies three classes of pistol:  a .22 caliber rimfire, a centerfire handgun of .32 caliber or greater and a .45 caliber pistol.  Most competitors use their .45 caliber pistol as their centerfire handgun.  Any type of sight can be used, except laser sights.  Many competitors use iron sights, but the recent trend has been towards red dot sights, which many shooters find easier to use.  New rules allow competitors to use their .22 caliber rimfire pistol throughout the competition. 
All courses of fire are fired from a standing position with one-hand at targets placed at 25 and 50 yards downrange.  Competitors shoot 90 rounds in each aggregate.  Each shot scores a maximum of 10 points.  Hence, a one-gun competition is often referred to as a "900" whereas a three-gun competition is a "2700".  New rules allow competitors to use two-hands throughout the competition.   
Below is an example of a “900” aggregate:
  • 2 Strings of slow fire. Each string consists of 10 shots at 50 yards at a NRA B6 target.
  • 1 National Match Course consisting of one 10-shot slow fire string at 50 yards, two 5-shot strings of timed fire at 25 yards, and two
    5-shot strings of rapid fire at 25 yards.
  • 4 Strings of timed fire. Each string consists of 5 shots in 20 seconds at 25 yards at a NRA B8 target.
  • 4 Strings of rapid fire. Each string consists of 5 shots in 10 seconds at 25 yards at a NRA B8 target.
