    Any NEFTA members on here know the rules regarding target ranges for the winter league pistol comps? I'm setting up my new pistol for the coming season and want to get some idea where to zero it and where to aim at the minimum/maximum ranges.:)

    I thought it was less than 7 for Pistol - 4 or 5?

    When setting out the course at Guiseley, Ken told me it was 7 yards so I set them starting at 7. However I've seen loads of 4 an 5 yd targets.

    In my many years with NEFTA it has always beeen 5 to 25 yards. I have checked the NEFTA website and for some reason the Rule has disappeared - will have to get Trev to reinstate it at the July meeting.

    Hope all is still going well Paul, give our regards to the family.

    I did the same thing Beryl, searched the NEFTA rules and came up blank. Thanks for the info.
    Doing fine thanks, been to the hospital today and things are moving on, i'll update on my "Like father like son thread":)

    It used to be 5 yards but some people seemed concerned about possible splash back so it seemed wise to err on the side of caution.
    I will bring this up at the next NEFTA meeting.

    With 6 ft.lb on a rigid faceplate as on a knockdown, possibly an issue. Can't see it on a lollipop though. I think it takes > 6ft.lb to splash a lead pellet, rather than just squash it to a disc.

    I've certainly seen targets much closer than 7 yards on most of the winter league shoots (apart from the Emley Moor pistol course, I don't think there were more than 2 targets less than 20 yards on that one :D )
