Nick was one of our dearest friends, USPSA Grandmaster, Area Champion and all round great guy. Both Deri and Nick were instrumental in my development in USPSA and gave me a ton of tips on how to be better. This memorial outlaw match was put together by a team led by Deri and Tim Ramberg.
I teamed up with Jason Hall to form “Team Hall & Lokes”. There were four stages of crazy and difficult shooting which was super fun. You can see how much we struggled especially with the gear and stage execution but managed to squeak in at 11th place overall. Hopefully we get to see this match again next year.
We miss you Nick! You would have loved this match.
I shoot multigun once a year, last time being Aug 2014. This is my 2nd time ever shooting Multigun in the Tactical Division. I sold my Glock 17 so I have to run my 19 this time which is so small I actually pinched my palm during a reload.
Not sure where I placed, I doubt it was very good as I have 3 big penalty stages. Doesn’t really matter though, I shoot this for fun and boy it was. My shotgun reloads need a ton of work/practice if I’m to get into this seriously.
For now, I’ll stick to USPSA Open Pistol.
So this is my first time ever shooting multigun. It’s a blast to shoot three different kinds of guns on the clock. The stress of remembering to make my guns safe and the extensive plan is a lot higher than the traditional USPSA matches I’ve shot. I’m sure if you do it often you’ll get used to it just like anything.
My Contour didn’t work very well today so I managed to get only two stages but you can see the massive failures at loading my guns, especially the shotgun. I only had like 15mins of practice a few months ago.
I can see why it’s so interesting for the multi gunners but I think I’ll stick to my Open pistol for now. It’s a lot of work bringing three different sets of gear and ammo to a match.
Big thanks to Alex Smith and other volunteers who set this match up!
