    Postal/online comps

    First post in this part of the forum,

    I shoot postal comps at the range (Hendon) but I was wondering if their are any others that run which can be entered and available to all? I did see one on social media but it was a bit of a shambles.

    Those little stickers in the corner of my targets always add something to my shooting (usually a 3) and i tend to learn more when they are their.

    Specifically 10m air pistol but I shoot lsr too(neither accurately) 👍

    There are lots and lots out there, but here are a couple of good ones for starters:

    Cambridgeshire

    Yorkshire

    Northants Leicestershire & Rutland also run a 10m Air Pistol League

    Police Sport UK leagues are open to all and run a full programme.

    MPL Competition.

    A nice little postal competition that can be shot from home or in the club (at the traditional British 6 yard distance) is the Muscle Power League - more usually referred to as the MPL.

    This competition was devised for Classic spring powered and SSP air pistols and air rifles to encourage the regular use of these old classic's in a nice competition that has a natural way of making the competition a very level playing field.

    These classics are available in a much lower price bracket than most PCP match rifles and pistols and so even those with a lower budget should be able to find a target pistol or rifle that will be competetive against any other.

    As an example - one of the most popular air pistols that was consistently amongst the best scores was the elgamo Centre under-lever pistol and there are plenty of these about at very competitive prices from 40 for one that may be a little rough or in need of a rebuild up to 100 for a mint example in perfect working condition. Most of those used previously cost about 60 ready to shoot!

    Suitable spring powered or SSP rifles included those that are recoiling and recoilless and the prices reflect the spec - but as long as they are .177 and below the legal power limit they are OK to shoot in the MPL with open or diopter sights ( no scopes).

    More recently the new Supported Shooting Class has been added to the competition where the pistol or rifle is supported ( see ISSF Rules here on the BBS) giving an excellent opportunity for everyone of any age to compete and enjoy. This class also accommodates and recoilless air pistol or rifle and so those with CO2 or PCP powered kit can use them too!

    This is a great postal competition that is often used to supplement "more serious" 10 meter or Bell Target competitions and is open to all!
    Rossendale Model Target Club every Tuesday and Thursday evening 7 - 10pm.

    Its easy to sign up - just look at the MPL thread here on the BBS Target/Competition and let Russ (PhatMan here on the BBS) know you would like to join in.

    All of the information about how to join and pay is shown here and you can send Russ a PM to confirm your entry.

    Glad to have you with us!

    Bob.
