Today I did Range Officer duty for the practice stage at the #richmondrodandgunclub It's nice that we get to filter in and shoot also. I steadily progressed in my runs, going fast and faster, then dialing back a tad to maintain good hits. Fun times with this crew, @digby7, @pclarkg35, @squireliverytours
#hardashell_3g_2g finally got to shoot stage 5 today. "Your squad sucks" featured popper you had to set on the clock. Not my favorite, but there's no complaining at #hah . Bird, buck, pistol, long range from a tower. Good stuff to 460 yards today with the @trojan_firearms UL15.
With lo g work hours and less daylight these days, I'm glad the range has this kind of setup. IR screens for the Pro Chrono and lights on the bay. I was abke to get my test loads choreographed and shot some back to back.
This is where the round without a primer bit me. Stage 5 on bay 4 today, i got off to a good start despite getting a bad grip on the gun, but then got hung up on the last small steel. I tried to make up for it in the middle and did ok, but a missing primer on the last array slowed me down a bit as well.
After chasing Seabass all Saturday afternoon I finally got a win over him, and an overall stage win. I brought up the idea of going strong hand and weak and in the front of the stage by hanging onto the barricade and Seabass talked me into doing it on the strong side. I do believe it was faster than going to both sides of the shooting area at the start of the stage.
After 16 stages of Multigun with some of the best shooters out there, I finished 5th in Tactical Division in the #surefireworldmultigunchampionship I shot consistently well on the 15 normal stages before a disappointing run on the "Shoot-off" stage. Still, it was a ton of fun to battle it out all the way through. The stages were awesome, ROs were friendly, and the match ran on time. I've shot this match since its inception and it's always on my short list of must go to matches, it should be on yours too.
Here's my final stage of the #surefireworldmultigunchampionship, the "shoot-off" It was 2 plate racks with the rifle, 13 shotgun plates and 16 pistol plates. I went into the stage in 2nd place in TAC, just 6 points behind 1st. Some slow shooting and the shotgun misses and load resulted in a very poor score for this triple point stage. This bumped me dowm to 5th in Tactical. It was a disappointing finish to a match that otherwise, I shot really well.
Fallen Brethren 3 Gun is in the books. I shot a pretty solid match with no major meltdowns and two smoking fast stages. Now we're waiting for final scores to come out along with the awards ceremony. Thanks a bunch to everyone and all the companies that have supported me and helped make this happen.
Being the first shooter is always rough. I didn't plan for any make up shots on stage 2. I started with 23 in the mag for a 21rd stage and should have known that the two extra shots on the right would put me empty. The gun felt light going kneeling and again that should have been a clue. No plan B really bit me on this stage. 25.55 seconds.
I'll go last on the next stage to plenty of time to make sure I finish strong on our last three stages.
Our first stage of day 2, stage 11, is eating our squad alive. I'm not feeling so bad about my two no-shoots after seeing Kent shoot 12rds in production and bump to Open, and another shooter DQ for breaking the 180 on a reload. I didn't see the sights that well this morning, next stage will be better.
My worst stage of the match so far, our 5th and final for day 1, stage 10a. The debate was to activate and leave the disappearing targets or time it and get them. This would have worked well if i would have not got trigger freeze on the right max trap. I then put two in the Hard cover on the very last target, onky saw one and made up one with am Alpha, still one miss :( 9.92 seconds.
After this we went to chrono. I passed with 133 power factor. 9mm Minor in limited, yup I'm doing it.
