25 Metre Service Pistol Match

The course of fire is shot at ranges from 25 yards down to 7 yards and consists of 60 scoring shots. Shooting is done on turning targets and throughout the course of fire, shooters are required to shoot prone, sitting, kneeling, and standing with both right and left hand, left and right hand only. Time sequences are as 25 m Service as 4 seconds and one requires reloading during the time allowed. As all series are in 5 round sequences, revolvers are equally well suited to the match as autoloaders.

The 25 m Service Pistol match is split into restricted and unrestricted categories. The course of fire is identical, with main differences being that the restricted course requires that the match be shot from a holster rather than from the 45 degree ready position. Any calibre up to .38 is permitted, but it is difficult for the smaller calibres to meet the power factor requirements.

Double action revolvers are very popular for this match, as they are highly reliable and once fired the double action and speed loading techniques are mastered, give nothing away to auto loaders.

25 m Service Pistol shooting combines precision, control, speed and timing and can also be shot with a stock standard handgun that meets Shot Pistol requirements. The same handgun and ammunition that qualifies for the restricted course can also be used in the unrestricted course, but not vice versa.

Australian shooters produce world class scores in this match and most clubs have range facilities that can accommodate 25 m Service Pistol Notices.
