2 Gun Action Challenge Match 9-21-2013
This match was a bit different in that we shot the first 3 stages, scores were calculated then shooters faced off in a man vs man shoot off. The winner’s time was reduced by 30 seconds and the loser’s time added 30 seconds. Hans ran a tight race against me, I rushed my last few shots not taking enough time to get a clear sight picture costing me the shoot off. Losing the shoot-off dropped me down from 7th to 14th place/30 shooters.
Phoenix Rod and Gun 3 Gun 9-22-2013
PRG’s 3 Gun match does not change much month to month, but it is an opprtunity to work on speed more than I can at the 2 Gun Action Challenge match which tends to be more accuracy centric with its’ scoring. The Trijicon SRS turned out to be a disappointing optic. The day before at 2 Gun some weird halo effects were noticeable around the reticle particularly during the shoot-off stage. Looking into the sun on stage 1 at PRG the dot was not clear at all. Depending on the angle I looked at targets a red rectangle appeared around the reticle. When I went prone the dot became more clear and I could shoot the targets at range easier. This review on The Bang Switch is entirely accurate. I still managed to place 1st/6 in Tac-Limited.
Rio Salado Rifle Match 9-29-2013
I switched back to the Aimpoint Micro on my CAV-15, which is a better fit for this rifle anyway due to weight savings. 16th/79 Shooters.
