After missing this for the past two months, I finally managed to get the chance to shoot it. There were six field courses and very dynamic stage designs. I came in 9th overall out of 45 shooters. I thought my speed and solution was ok, just messed up 3-4 times by tagging no-shoots and taking unnecessary extra shots at the final hostage targets. I need to build up my confidence a little and stop taking extra shots at that small target.

Checkout a frame of video that shows four shell cases in the air as I engage two targets side by side with two shots each. Super splits!
Went out to the Custer Sportsmen’s Club for the USTRA (http://ustacticalrifle.org) final TacRifle match of the season. Squadded with a bunch of great & experienced shooters. I came in 6th overall at this match and had a ton of fun. It’s always exhilarating to shoot a Tactical Rifle match, you shoot anywhere from 30-50 rounds of ammo per stage and you get to run and gun with long guns like you would in a traditional USPSA/IPSC type stage format.
I brought out my high-speed camera and gun-cam and spliced them together. Hope you enjoy watching it.
Had a TON of fun shooting this August’s match up in Custer. It’s the Civilian version of a Military & Law Enforcement competition called the SWAT Rodeo. They usually shoot this tournament over two days and across 10 stages. We only got to shoot 6 of them because some of the stages require transitions from the Primary rifle to a secondary pistol, which I think is deemed too precarious for us civilians

Here’s a video of the match :
here are some videos I took from our recent Tactical Rifle match up at Custer Sportmen’s Club in Custer, WA
Love this format of competitive shooting. Fast paced and fun!
Roy, Sydney and I drove almost 2 hours to Custer, WA today for a safety briefing. Typically in any IPSC/USPSA or IDPA styles matches, you’d have to go for a safety briefing by the Range Officer before you can participate or shoot the matches that are run by that range.
Here’s a video of me navigating through the stage that they’ve setup for us :
I’ll be uploading videos of the other folks who were there shortly, after I get off this plane
Lots of rifles especially ARs and AKs at the recent Rifle match in Renton. The most amazing rifles were the Lee Enfield and M1 Garand. You can actually feel the recoil from yards away.
