Had a fun time at the match today at CCSC. Good amount of people which kind of surprised me as there is a fairly major match going on up by Raleigh this weekend. I think we still had close to 60 shooters. Weather complied with us, but was a bit chilly and windy. Even got a few flakes of snow and then some frozen rain for about a minute or so.
Anyway, here are the first 4 courses of fire.
Stage 1 – Mix of paper and steel targets. Seventeen round minimum count to engage 6 paper and 3 steel targets. One steel target was an activator for a drop turner. Videos, compliments of my lovely wife are of me shooting! Yay. This one cut off about 5 seconds early. I thought I was done, but had one more target just around the corner of the barrel. You’ll see it to the left at the end. I finished this stage in 32.99 seconds and no points down.
Stage 2 – Six paper targets of which one is a pop-up target that is activated by opening the door. Total round count was 12 for this stage of which I shot 15. I shot an extra shot at one of the first 3 targets, one at the long range target, and one at the target behind the no threat (black hands target). Finished in 29.05 seconds, with one point down, but just barely hit the non-threat target, so that cost me 5.5 additional seconds for a total of 34.55 seconds.
Stage 3 – This stage was shot in two strings of 6 shots each (limited, can’t shoot any more than 6).
First string had you engage the center target first with one shot, then each of the other two targets with one shot, before each target received a 2nd shot. This was a clean run for me at 6.3 seconds with no points down.
The second string was about the same as the first, except you engage each target with one body shot and one head shot. Again, you had to start with the center target first and then each of the next two targets. This was again a clean run with no points down at a time of 6.74 seconds.
Hope you all enjoy the videos. I’ll hopefully be shooting at the next Mecklenburg Wildlife Defensive Shooters match which will be a classifier. Maybe this time I can do better and move up from Marksman to Sharpshooter.
Well, that’s it for me today. Remember, shoot safe, shoot straight!
