  • Looking to get back into pistol shooting.

    Hello everyone. As my title describes I am looking to get back into pistol shooting after sometime away from it. When I was previously involved in pistol shooting I had owned quite a few so I know what floats my boat. But seeing last time I was involved in handguns was pre 99. I have no problems starting all over again as I my rifles to entertain me.

    The main thing is I really only want one handgun and as it has no bearing on my questions I would rather not name it as this is my choice and not a question I want derailed by "you should by this it's better" or "I had one of those and they are crap".

    So getting to it I am looking at a 45 and understand that I need to be involved in M/S to obtain a hi cal permit. I am curious can this handgun be used in other events like IPSC and general target practice or am I doomed to M/S only. I could go down the 9mm route but would prefer my first choice as it was my comp gun when I competed in IPSC.

    I am from NSW if that helps with my questions.

    Also can anyone recommend a club that supports metallic silhouette within a 2hr drive of Sydney.

    Thanks everyone for your input.

    G'day Apocalypse, good to see you getting back into pistol shooting. Yeah its gonna be a bit different compared to pre '99


    If you want a .45 you will be confined to MS events, nothing in IPSC over .38


    As for where those comps are held I'm not the person to ask. Far as I know Bowral PC offers it, hopefully someone will jump in here with the info you need

      Thanks zhuk, I really do miss IPSC so that may be the deal clincher. Would have liked to go back to IPSC with a 45. I guess they have changed the rules regarding PF now, that or everyone's shooting 38 super.

      You may have made my mind up. Cheers for your help.
