Greetings all, my first post.

Here in Australia we shoot a few matches based on PPC (principally the WA1500 match) and we have recently considered moving to the WA target. Until now, we have used the 'sanitised" version that is a simple rectangle, going out to a 6-ring (although we don't score the 6 in WA1500).

The WA target has an inverted arrow (ie, it points down and rests on the target) instead of the...um....bit that yours has (don't ask me why, it's a PC thing).

Anyways, a few questions if I may.

Who prints the PPC target, at what cost and on what material (ie, paper or cardboard)?

How are the matches run-on turners, or on statics with an audible signal?

I much appreciate your assistance.

(Oh and by the way, I use a custom Model 10, Aristocrat rib, Apex multi groove barrel with a Safariland holster in the Revolver match. I use an STI Targetmaster 9mm with a 6lb progressive spring and a German holster in auto.)

Cheers all.

You can go to the NRA website, under law enforcement competitions, and obtain a list of target suppliers. American Target, in Colorado, is where I order them.

For the match to be registered, it must us turning targets. An approved match can use a static target with an audible signal. Only registered matches can count for national records.

Targets are available from American Target Company or National Target Company. At our matches we use turning target.
