What competitions with these guns

I would like to enter competitions shooting:

*S&W 41 with a red dot sight
*S&W 686 revolver using .38 rounds, iron sights
*Beretta 92fs.

What competitions allow the use of these firearms?

With those guns you could shoot two of the three parts of a three gun Bullseye match (the .22 match and the Centerfire match). To shoot the whole thing, you'd need to add a .45.
Frequently, Bullseye matches, called "900 matches", are shot and these require only one of the three guns that a full (2700) match needs.
(Note: Many Bullseye shooters use only two guns, a .22 and a .45, despite the "three" gun terminology.)

You should be able to use the 686 in NRA Distinguished Revolver matches using 38spl 158gr lead RN or SWCs.

and the 92fs can be used in CMP EIC matches - i.e. Distinguished Pistol.

better get an 8 shot .40 revo if you want to shoot steel.. Does smith make an 8 shot 9x19? I could load .38spl mouse farts. I really want to try my 625 .45ACP JM in USPSA limited revo.
