The Texas Mover is an unofficial variation of the NRA Action Pistol Moving Target Event that requires the competitor to reload "on the clock".

Course of Fire:


The target will move from behind a barricade, travel 60 feet in 6 seconds, then disappear behind another barricade.

There will be a clearly marked, 3 foot square firing area at each stage. The firing square will be at the center of the 60-foot run of the target. The competitor must remain within the firing square for the complete firing sequence. The starting position will be with the handgun holstered and both hands held shoulder high.

There will be no audible signals. When the competitor is ready to fire both hands must be raised to the starting position. The appearance of the target from behind the barricade will be the signal to commence fire.

There will be a mandatory reload after each 6 rounds fired.
