SMM3G 2014 is done. I had a great time shooting with the range officers on Wednesday and Thursday before the main match began. I ended up placing 17th/53 Shooters in Tac-Limited or about 70% of the match winner’s score. This is up 5% from my place last year of 13/37 shooters or 65% of the match winner’s score.
I used the same upper from the CAV-15 MKII Abuse test with an Aimpoint M4 and TSD Kompressor added. This upper had standard M4 Handguards, and was not free floated. I used a very basic upper deliberately to demonstrate that dedicated 3 gun uppers are not necessary to shoot reasonably well, particularly in Tac-Limited division.
The Beretta 1301 Competition shotgun I used I had only had for about a week and only used at one local match. It worked flawlessly and is currently probably the best out of the box 3 Gun Shotgun. My full review of the 1301 can be found in issue 13 of Recoil Magazine at the end of May 2014.
I used my TSD Combat Systems Glock 17 with Warren Tactical Sevigny Sights. It just works and continues to be a little more accurate than my stock 17.
