July 2011 Arizona Matches

Rio Salado Multigun 7-9-2011
2nd/15 Tac Limited 8/36 Over All

7-16-2011 ACTS
3rd/46 Over All 3rd/18 Enhanced

The match this month was brutal. Two stages had limited round count, one stage of mini-IPSC steel at 125 yards through V-Tac Barricade. Shooting clean was more important than shooting fast.

2nd Place Tac-Limited/11 shooters. 345.48 Match Points, 4.98 match points behind 1st place.

7-30-2011 ACTS Shotgun
5th/21 Over all. 4th/8 Enhanced (Semi auto tube fed)

Arizona ACTS ran a one time tactical shotgun match on July 30th, 2011.  The stage designs were done in such a way that I didn’t feel this was much of a reloading race like 3 gun stages often are. Stage 4 was the only one where it was to some degree, but there was enough movement that it didn’t matter a lot.

Maneuvering through the cooper tunnels on stage 1 with my 24″ Benelli was a pain. The ability to transition to pistol after shooting empty + the stage designs would make a Short Barrelled Shotgun much more competitive at this match than other venues.

About SinistralRifleman

I've been competing in the action shooting sports since 2002. I believe competition shooting to be an excellent way to build gun handling and marksmanship skills and encourage all gun owners to seek out some form of competition shooting. Anyone can become reasonably good at it if they devote the time and resources to do so. Winning, while nice, need not be your goal; bettering yourself through the pursuit of excellence is something we all can achieve.
