Is the line ready? The line IS ready. Ready on the right. Ready on the left. Ready on the firing line.
AIM-COMM administers the farthest-north and the most popular indoor bullseye pistol shooting league program in Alaska. Over the years, hundreds of community members, ages 10 and older, and of all skill levels from beginner to expert, have participated in AIM-COMM's NRA-Sanctioned Bullseye Leagues.
AIM-COMM conducts the leagues in partnership with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) Hunter Education Indoor Shooting Range (HEDR), in Fairbanks, Alaska. ADF&G started the league program at the range, with the help of avid shooters, soon after the range opened. Today, AIM-COMM works to make the leagues safe, successful, and fun for all.
We invite you to learn more about the league shooting program. Read the information provided on this website or stop in at the range and inquire. Spectators are welcome during league matches. Besides being a lot of fun, participation in the leagues helps shooters improve their marksmanship, achieve levels in the NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program, and earn a NRA Classification for conventional, indoor pistol! Come join us!
(September 18 through November 13, 2020. Wednesday or Friday evenings.)
Open to safe and responsible shooters, ages 10 and older, who have a range ID number which is issued by completing the range orientation and safety briefing at the Alaska Department of Fish and Game Hunter Education Indoor Shooting Range in Fairbanks, Alaska, during walk-in public shooting hours.

AIM-COMM's Bullseye Pistol Leagues involve firing, during each match, a 90-round, three aggregate, course of fire, worth a possible 900 points and 60 Xs (an X is scored when the center, "X" ring, on either a timed-fire or rapid-fire target is hit) as follows:
Typically, multiple relays (with up to 10 shooters on the firing line at a time at the indoor range) are conducted, with shooters firing a complete aggregate each relay, for a total of three aggregates per match. An aggregate is worth a total possible 300 points and 20 Xs and includes:
AIM-COMM's Bullseye Pistol Leagues offer just a sample of traditional bullseye, conventional pistol, shooting. National Matches are 50-yard, three-gun affairs (.22 rimfire pistol, centerfire pistol, and .45 pistol which may serve as the centerfire pistol as well), firing 90 rounds with each type of gun, for a possible 2,700 points and 180 Xs.
Below are just some of the guns shooters use in the leagues! From off-the-shelf to custom bullseye wadcutters, all sorts of guns are used. You don't need a "fancy" gun to shoot Bullseye. And, you can trade up or buy up as your skill and interest in the sport grows!
