    i also question the practicality and safety (Use of holsters hair triggers exposed triggers etc) of allowing a 10 metre rapid fire pistol such as the LP50 or FWB 58 in this discipline they also only have 5 shots and mag changes not designed for speed.

    .22 Target Pistols were outlawed in the UK in the 90's so I doubt that they would be an issue at all.

    The general rules are inadequate and needing clarification.

    My further info is that the IPro-SportA has adopted this or a similar activity possibly softair as part of their development effort!

    I agree with you on the safety aspect given the sensitivity of the triggers and that the majority of the target pistols do not have a manual safety.


    I suppose I am just interested in where one eventually goes in the sport as far as equipment is concerned.


    At the moment from what I can see there is still a fairly limited (lots of variety be few actual options) in terms of the types of pistols out there suitable for this sport.

    It pretty much breaks down into c02 powered pistols firing 8 round magazines.


    What I would like to see is a manufacturer produce a self loading air, not c02, powered pistol that is self loading and can utilise magazines similar to those found in the likes of Theobens etc.

    E.g. An action block similar to a Weihrauch HW100 where the magazine sits low in the action to allow for the attachement of optics, also providing the option of 10-15 shots without the need to reload. Obviously weight and asthetics become an issue.


    The other interesting one that I have seen is the air cartridges (banned in the UK unfortunately so availability of both pistols and the components is an issue). To me this seems like a viable if somewhat expensive option in that a self loading air pistol would function very similarly to an actual pistol, firing a pellet, utilising some of the air to drive the slide back and ejecting the spend cartridge, or using a revolver style pistol that can hold 8 cartridges.
