View Full Version : Targets and Distances

Can any of you cowpokes (especially Cherokee Cowboys) tell me what the standard target size is and the normal distance for pistol targets. I want to set up my own "mini range" for practice.

Take a look at SASS' web site at www.sassnet.com (http://www.sassnet.com) .

The Cherokee Cowboys use 18x24" steel targets for pistol,set at about 10 yards. For rifle,we use 12x12" diamonds set at about 15 yards. A good idea is to practice with smaller targets than you'll see in a match.

I like shooting at bowling pins for practice. I sorta feel if I can hit them in practice, then big cowboy targets would be easier in the real match.
