So what is the longest shot you have come across in a match for pistols?  We just incorporated a rifle bay into our monthly match so I said Fuck it and made a par timed 75 yard to 50 yard stage to see how people react outside their comfort zone.  Didn't see anything in the rules limiting me on this but if there is I would like to know about it.

30 yard head box sized steel. Don't remember anything else particularly long in recent memory.

30 yard head box works out to roughly 90 yard D zone on a metric. Tough shot under pressure with the steel stress to boot.

There are classifiers for that, Long Range Standards 2 https://www.uspsa.or...fiers/08-05.pdf (I put that one in at a club match when I was the MD) and Area 4 Standards https://www.uspsa.or...fiers/08-06.pdf (included the 2016 Area 4 Matchbook)

longest i've seen lately was 40 yards to an array of 3 poppers and 1 mini. not an easy shot, but makeable if you know where your gun shoots. I wouldn't have any issue with 50-75 yard shots, but I think it would be best to incorporate them into a low-round-count stage so as not to add insult to injury when people zero the stage.

40 yards to hard cover paper and 40 yards to a mini popper from a tight position around a wall.

There used to be an informal all steel match hereabouts that required hits anywhere from 10 to 120 yards.  Some stages were par, some comstock.  The longest shots were on rectangular plates that were approximately 3x3 feet square.  It was interesting to see how many people couldn't hit beyond 25 or so; I don't think they ever considered checking or setting sights for such work.


No one likes me, and I don't care.

Long range steel sucks for local match flow because doods will camp there and blow mag after mag at it trying to hit it.  Plus calibration issues.  Hope your RM has a really nice calibration gun with a scope.  At Nationals in Tulsa years ago they had NS behind mini poppers at about 40 yards on one stage.  Amidon (the RM) said he had 14 no shoots on that stage.

 

Put some paper out there and the same doods will throw two or three at it, miss all 3 and drive on.

 

Resetting and scoring still sucks, but at least it's consistent suckage.

For me, strong hand only 35-yard 6 shots 6 sec par-time is the most challenging (compared to the 50-yard free-style in Area 4 standards).

95 yd pepper popper.   One target stage.   IIRC the fastest time was 2.6 with a Limited gun,

and 80%+ of the competitors made the shot.

I've had Area 4 standards a couple times.  I've also seen mini-poppers at 25 yards with no-shoots behind them.


I like to rewatch election night 2016 coverage and I want to marry a conservative black girl who likes to shoot.

50 yard standards at area 7 a few years back, they also had 35 yard poppers.

 

The longest I've seen in a club match is one of the classifiers that is like 35-40 yards.   The sand in the vaginas was pretty bad.

Long Range Standards 2 (all 3 targets at 50 yards) is the longest I've shot at a match.

On last pistol level 3 match we had 2 targets at 60 yards on one stage.

Super long stuff, not so common. I seem to see 20ish yard stuff pretty routinely though.

More often than not the stages I build will have partials at 20 yards or just over. I like to pair these up with something close.

I took a class in 2013 from some Beretta-shooting fuckboy. He included 3 mini poppers at 50 yards on one stage.

Our bays are on the short side so we don't shoot more than 25 yards as a rule. Longest I have seen is 50 yards. No need to go long to make shots difficult. Stages become to hard to administer in a reasonable time.

One of my earliest matches, circa 1980 ish, had a 50 yard WHO stop plate. The plate laughed at me when I ran out of ammo... I guess technically, that timer is still running.
