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 🙂
