Rio Salado Multigun 5-12-2012

This was my first match using my rifle with the Leupold HAMR and Aimpoint Micro attached to it with the Hahn Precision mount.  As you can see in the video above it worked well on the close range and long range stages.

Saiga-12 with 20 round drum and Aimpoint M2 in RS Regulate mount made the shotgun stages simple.

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.

  1. I really like HAMR, looks like a better brother of ACOG (which is not Paralax free, but issued to me for free 🙂 ). I also like you actually using the cover when shooting, transition of shoulders etc., nice job. Looks to me like kind of IDPA match, am I right? I have found IDPA more satisfying my needs than IPSC. I actually stopped attending IPSC matches, because of it being sport and not defensive shooting anymore (opportunity to walk the stage before, no punishment for not using the cover, most people dressing like cyclists with unpractical cyborg holsters instead of something realistic etc. – it´s nice sport, but at some stage it started to teach me bad habits – no control of space after shooting, I mentioned the cover use already and some more stuff). Thanks for your posts – really nice guns ang shooting skills!

    • Thanks for the reply. This match is run under rules closer to USPSA (US division of IPSC) than IDPA. Stages designs the match officials come up with determine a lot of the shooting experience.
      Also how one choose to approach a stage makes a difference. I wasnt required to change shoulders for example, but to me it was just easier to do than leaning way out around the barricade. There are different divisions for all types of equipment so you only compete against people with similar equipment. The holsters you mentioned are only allowed in open division generally. I have a Glock with slide mounted RMR I use in a safari land duty holster for open and it doesn’t hold me back much at all if any vs race holsters. Check out my videos of ACTS matches; those ones are more oriented around combative gun handling and physical challenge and would probably be to your liking.
