Rapid FireThe rapid fire match is also one of the older matches, but is still very popular. The match is shot on five turning targets, spaced 75cm apart. The match consists of four series of five shots each in 8 seconds, 6 seconds and 4 seconds. The course of fire is in two 30 shot stages of two series in each time sequence. The shooter must wait with the shooting arm at 45 degrees to horizontal until the targets start to turn. Rapid fire handguns are the same as Standard Pistols. When the handgun is raised to the shooting position, it must point and recover from recoil with a minimum of effort, as the shooter has little time to make corrections in the faster time series. Well fitting orthopaedic grips, adjustable triggers and reliable functioning are characteristics of a good Rapid Fire handgun.
