    Good Times, Later today I'll upload some of the pics I took (The ones that were not out of focus) As well as some video. I had a great Vid of Hoser blazing stage 1 but I set the focus about 2 feet in front of me so it ended up being a big blur lol.

    Here are a few of the photos I took. I decided not to wash them through PhotoShop.

    The weather WAS outstanding. Nice temp. Winds gusted above 6 mph at times for sure but all in all very manageable.

    Here are a few quick pics. For some reason my batch resizer really degraded the image quality. The overexposure, however, is all my fault. I'll get better versions up in the near future after I've had time to Photoshop them.

    Thanks everyone, had a great time. I learned a lot about what I don't know.

    Hope to be back soon.

    Had an absolute blast again. This is really better than drugs and significantly cheaper. Thanks again to everyone who makes this possible each month and to the great bunch of guys that show up to shoot. All egos checked at the door makes for an enjoyable day!

    See you all next month.

    That was my first time shooting the match and I really enjoyed it.
    Excellent!

    Two things I noticed. Outside of the standards, all the shooting postions seemed to be supported in one way or another, even the close up targets where thru a port.
    For rifle practical shooting, it's very rare to find stages that force you to engage targets at distances of 200-400 yards from an unsupported position. The thought is that in a real world situation, it's generally possible to find something that you can use to brace your shot. As a result, the majority of targets at distance will allow for some ability to steady your shot.

    The close-in targets were shot through a port more as a way to present a challenge with regard to optics. If the port was too narrow, you'd have to find some other way to engage the targets rather than just straight on. For the most part, the close-up targets will be set up in a way to try to test a certain concept or skill rather than just presenting something to blaze away at.

    The second is that maybe 4 targets and less than 10% of the total number of shots were close up (under 100 yards). Are both of those things fairly standard for the shoots?
    Yep. Even an average rifle should be accurate enough to hit targets to 400 yards or so. There aren't a lot of ranges that can play at the distances we've got, so we want to push it. In the long run, it will make you a better shooter. (Ask Hoser about my response to the "long-range" targets at Superstition Mountain the first year I went...)

    I might change rifles from my 3.5x ACOG to something with some more ass to it if longer range shots dominate at the matches.
    A 3.5x ACOG is plenty for shooting at these distances. It's what I use.
    The main trick is to get range time with it and really get a solid feel for how the BDC reticle works. Once you've got it dialed in, it becomes much easier to hit the further range targets.

    Maybe add a rail sight or something for the infrequent close up shot.
    I don't have any experience with these. Some shooters like them, others don't. For close up they can be faster, but it's also possible for them to snag on things as well.


    If not I really need to get my ACOG out to 200-300 and figure out my POA and POI with it.
    Now you're talking. Everything needed to make hits at those distances is built into the scope. It's just a matter of getting it all down so you know what your holdover is at any given distance.

    Cool, thanks guys. It is nice to be able to stretch the legs and get some long shots! As I shoot the different shooting competitions I'm trying to get a feel for the flavors. Just wanted see if that was representative of what the matches were like. Me likey having some support, it takes me a few cups of coffee to get up and drive down from Denver. I know what you mean about higher power scopes, I even got sucked into ACOG a bit. It really helped putting some tape on the ACOGs to tame down the reticle. Maybe I get get some rounds down range during the precision class to get a better long range feel with the ACOG.

    One thing is definately clear as I shoot more of these comps, the gear you use takes a big backseat to your skill level. It would be fun to shoot the competition with a Garand sometime.

    Thanks again!
    I'll stop buying black rifles when my wife stops buying black shoes.

    Amen.

    It kicked my a$$ but I enjoyed it. Next time I bring my normal rifle and don't worry about adding or changing things for the match. I also bring the cheap ammo as I used way more than I should have.

    Regardless, I had a good time and tried some things I have not done before. Next score will be better!

    I shoot a 16 inch carbine with a EoTech and have a blast, bullets fly, I get hits, but I also learn my limits versus the limits of my equipment. This is what a rifle was designed for.
