IDPA Match at Central Carolinas Shooting Club 2-11-2012 Part 2


Stage 4 - This stage consisted of 3 paper targets which are engaged with 2 rounds each. Minimum round count was 6, but you could make up shots. In this stage, you are simulating speaking to 911 when you have to engage 3 targets with strong hand only. I am NOT very good with one hand only shooting. I shot this stage in 8.04 seconds and down 4 points for a total time of 10.04 seconds.

Stage 5 - This stage consisted of 1 steel target at the end of a "hallway" and 5 paper targets spread out on each side of the hallway as you advanced. Each paper target received two body shots and one head shot for a minimum round count of 16. I shot an extra 3 shots on the paper targets to the right. For some reason, I have a hard time aiming around the left sides of barricades. Something I need to work on. Anyway, I finished this at a snails pace of 50.03 seconds and down 1 point for a total of 50.53 seconds.

And finally, we have a walk-through of stage 5. Always tough to see what's happening when you video from behind, so Deb walked it for me and showed each target.

So, final tally. Minimum round count was 63 of which I took 70 shots. My raw time was 133.42 and I was down 6 points (add 3 seconds) and had 1 hit on a non-threat (add 5 seconds) for a total time of 141.42.

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!
