There are two types of Falling Plate Events that JRPC runs.

The first is the classic NRA Action Pistol Falling Plate Event.

The second is a pure speed event that consists of six 8" round or 6" square steel plates set 1' apart, edge to edge, that are shot down as fast as possible. This is done several times by each competitor with the slowest time being dropped and the remaining times totaled for their match aggregate. Lowest aggregate time wins. The six targets are all shot at the same distance which may vary from 10 to 20 yards. Guns used in this event should be .38 Special/9mm or larger to effectively down the heavy targets.
