Equipment

A zeroed rifle or pistol caliber carbine and the ability to carry ammunition for it.  A magazine fed semi automatic is suggested.  Up to 60 rounds may be needed during a stage.  You need a chamber flag for your rifle.  If you do not have one it will be provided at cost.  A pistol and a holster that will retain the pistol while moving.  Depending on capacity, 2-4 magazines are needed.  Any accessory used on a gun must stay on the gun throughout the match e.g. bipod, magnified optic etc.  Round count is generally under 150 rifle and 100 pistol.

 

Physical and Mental Component

You will be required to shoot from a variety of positions, perform physical challenges, move and be safe while being timed.  If you have issue with a particular physical aspect, talk to the RO after the stage walk-though and an alternative will be considered.  Blind stages and target discrimination stages will be included to encourage shooters to think during a stage.

 

Safety Briefing

  • Eye and hearing protection will be required at all times for all participants during the match. This includes spectators.
  • This is a cold range. All weapons will be unloaded at all times with the exception of the shooter actually shooting in the stage.  No weapons will be loaded/made ready until verbal command is received from the Range Officer
  • When not in use, sidearms will be holstered, magazine removed, hammer down When not in use, rifles will be carried facing downward, racked or grounded, magazine removed. The use of a chamber flag for long arms is required.
  • 180 degree rule applies for shooters during the course of the stages
  • This match involves movement with loaded weapons, no fingers in the trigger guard unless shooting. Be aware of tripping hazards during movement.  You are required to maintain control of your weapons during the match.
  • Match stages will be designed and laid out to avoid the necessity to abandon hot weapons and avoid the necessity to “hot holster” during weapon transitions
  • When a shooter has completed shooting a stage they will drop magazine and show clear.  A pistol will be aimed at the berm and have hammer/striker dropped and re-holstered, rifles will have chamber flags inserted.
  • If you are not comfortable with the requirements during any stage, or are not able to perform the activity, YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO DO IT. Just inform the Range Officer and we’ll figure something else out.
