April 2012 ACTS Match

1st/33 Overall, 1/13 Open Division.

I used my 14.5″ (permanent phantom flash hider) carbine with Trijicon TA11J for this match as I will be using it next week at the Tiger Valley Team Match.  From watching others shoot the match this time, the main thing that put me in the lead was cleaner pistol shooting.  On stage 1 I had 3 shots for 3 hits, and on stage 3 I only had 2 seconds added for -1 zone hits.  Several people should have been faster than me, but when it got to the pistol portions they missed a lot or got a lot of time added on paper.  Pistol shooting at ACTS is always very technical, and it pays to be able to shoot the pistol accurately at range when fatigued.

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.
