William Penn Pistol League

We have 2 teams in the William Penn Pistol League: Red Rose and Mount Joy. 

The season runs from September through April. Matches are Wednesday nights starting at 7:00pm. Cost is $5.00.

Our Mount Joy team practices on Sundays at 1:00pm.
Our Red Rose team practices Fridays at 7:00pm.

Think you might be interested? Contact one of the people below –or come to one of our practices.

If you decide to join, you will need a .22 caliber revolver or semi-auto pistol. If you are thinking of buying one, stop by one of our practices and we’ll show you the guns we use.

Course of Fire (all one-handed)

  • 20 shots slow fire (2 – ten shot relays each in ten minutes)
  • 20 shots timed fire (4 – five shot relays of 20 seconds each)
  • 20 shots rapid fire (4 – five shot relays of 10 seconds each)

Each shot is worth 10 points and a total possible score is 600.

The top five shooters from each team are considered the gold team for the evening and the match is decided by their aggregate score.  

The five next highest shooters are considered the blue team and their points for the evening are scored the same. These scores are accumulated over 27 matches to determine the best Gold and Blue club teams for the season.

Shooters may shoot two handed but their scores do not count toward team aggregates for each match. This allows new shooters or those with physical limitations to enjoy the camaraderie unique to the shooting sports.
