OSU Pistol Team competes in the Willamette Valley Pistol League (WVPL).

Team reading material:  The Encyclopedia of Bullseye Pistol

We shoot 9 targets, 3 of each type in a typical match. This totals to 90 rounds, 100 points possible per target or 900 points possible in a match. Slow fire consists of 10 shots in 10 minutes loaded and shot at the shooter's choice of pace. Timed fire is 2 strings of 5 shots each with 20 seconds per string (approximately 4 seconds per shot), loaded and fired per the range officer. Rapid fire is 2 strings of 5 shots each with 10 seconds per string (approximately 2 seconds per shot), loaded and fired per the range officer.

What do you need to write on your targets on competition day?
On the front top-right of the target write what target it is (S1, S2, NGM S, etc.)
On front top right corner of your targets write the following (be sure to underline or circle or do something to show what team you are shooting for, the examples use underlines):

<First name> <Last name>

Date of match
<target type>
