Use the IPSC Silhouette target, a starter's whistle, and a stop-watch.
Each participant takes his turn at timing, and at whistle-blowing.
Separately, each shooter starts with hands at sides.
At the whistle, the timer starts the clock, and the shooter draws (maybe not from concealment).
The shooter fires two rounds at the center-of-mass, and then fires one round at the head.
At the sound of the third shot, the timer stops the clock.
The shooter reloads, makes his pistol safe, and reholsters.
The starter and the shooter move forward to score and tape the target.
Scoring: Only hits in the two "A" zones count. Add one second to the shooter's time for each hole that is not in the "A" zone (or an edger). The shooter's score, then, is his complete elapsed time (including penalty seconds).
Start the first run of your six shooters at three yards.
Then go to seven yards for the next string of the six competitors.
Then move back to 10 yards.
Finally, try to do the runs at 15 yards.
Keep careful track of the individual scores at each distance.
The least combined time wins the match.
Silhoulette is perfect for friendly competition. Due to the wonders of math, it can be scaled up or down for everything from air pistol to long range precision rifle. For an indoor range where you can't set up the steel animals, there are scaled paper targets where the animals are sized to shoot at a single distance. There are also regular size paper targets where you change the distance the same as if you were shooting the steel animals. It is good fun. It might be the most versatile of shooting games as it so easily scaled for type of gun, distance, etc. Backyard air pistol is a lot of fun too.
Here is a paper rifle target for when using the steel animals is not possible. They have paper targets for most every type of shooting, i.e. rimfire pistol, etc. The bottom photo is the steel animals that are sized for air pistol. The distances for that one are 10, 12.5, 15 and 18 yards. The chicken is close at 10 yards but they are tiny!
