Who would you have your money on ?




If there is a high noon showdown between a master class bullseye shooter and a master class USPSA shooter , the distance is 50 yards, guns in hands at 45* (since bullseye shooters have no holsters).

Who do you think will win ?

Bullseye shooters are not experienced at shooting moving targets. I expect the USPSA shooter would not stand still and could/would shoot on the move.

What are the rules of the contest? Number of shots to be fired, time limits, reloads, movement...
Each of the 2 shooters you described has a differnt skill set, different strengths and weaknessess.

If they're not going to move, then the bulls eye shooter. He'll probably be quicker off the draw and better first shot. If they're moving around though the USPSA shooter might get it.

There is no draw and I highly doubt a bullseye shooter would have a faster draw. Master class shooters are highly accurate, in either discipline. Better first shot?, I doubt that one too.

I would think that the USPSA shooter would mop up. A human silhouette even at 50 yds is big target.

What in the world would make someone think that a bullseye shooter would be quicker off the draw then a Master level USPSA shooter?

How much time are bullseye shooters allowed when taking their shots from the 50 yard line? Mark

I'd pick the guy with the better nerves. Shooting a man is going to be different than shooting a target, especially one you know will be shooting back. Regardless of discipline and background, the guy who looks like he's about to piss himself when they're standing there is probably going to die.

Not the answer you were looking for, I know.

It's all about being willing, remember this:

John Bernard Books: First of all,friend, there's no one up there shooting back at you. Second, I found most men aren't willing, they bat an eye, or draw a breath before they shoot. I won't.

People who don't shoot USPSA seem to get this flawed idea that shooting USPSA shooting automatically equals no importance/emphasis on accuracy... only "spray and pray".... DEAD WRONG.

USPSA is VERY much accuracy based... long distance steel plates and small target zones due to hard cover/no shoots... ya its no bullseye match, but you still have to hit a specific scoring area, fast, and at random distances, fast.

Either way... If you have a USPSA shooter that achieved master class he/she will be a GOOD accuracy shooter... It just goes hand in hand.

This comparison is very much flawed/vague, its one of those "if everything is equal, who would......" I know a master class production shooter than can shoot x rings in a PPC target from 25yds at a very fast pace with his Glock...

..... All else being equal, fat people use more soap.

MIke.

When someone's shooting back at you, competition skills go out the window

You mean Ross Seyfried. Yep, damn good shooter. Lots of his accomplishments in pistol shooting are 30 years old though. Not sure of his age now.

He won the World IPSC Shoot in 81. Rob Leatham, who is still winning competitions, won it the next 3 years it was held.

How do you know this?

I think when a guy shoots 30K-100K rounds a year, he may know just a little about shooting a handgun and won't forget it under pressure.

Yeah, that's what I do, look up a John Wayne quote for my tactical training.

At 50 yards both would probably be hit but neither die.COLD.

In that case they'll both be shooting Colt SAA's and the contest could go on for hours as both contestants attempt to figure out where the thumb safety is located.
