What is Service Pistol?

Well, were not quite sure where it started, but we're working on an answer to that question. In the meantime...

The service pistol match involves firing delibrate, rapid and instinctive from the prone (lying), sitting, kneeling and standing positions. Serials are fired at distances from 7m to 50m. Each shooter has a group of four targets. The targets turn mechanically to present a timed exposure.

Come and try!

Firearms and ammunition

The service pistol match is suited to six-shot revolvers. However, the semi-auto enthusiast is similalry limited to six rounds per magazine for fairness. The match requires 90 rounds of ammunition of your chosen calibre.

A Club firearm and ammunition are available for use.


The Club strongly recommends the use of:

  • hearing protection
  • safety glasses
  • enclosed footwear

The following items are not mandatory but are convenient to have:

  • holster
  • magazines (at least two)
  • revolver speed loader


Competition is held on the first Saturday of each month commencing at 1.30pm. Service Pistol utilises the 50m ISSF range. The range can accomodate only 4 firers per detail due to multiple targets per firer. Details are filled on a first come, first served basis.
