Well I've never competed in any sort of organized shooting other than my school's intramurals. CMMG held a 3-gun match on Saturday, and since it was only a couple hours away, I decided to go. Unfortunately I didn't take pics, but there's quite a few threads on ar15.com with someone who did take pics and vids. I'll re-post here, with a little commentary. http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=1&f=5&t=695438&page=1 Here's the post with ALL of the pictures. 56k-forgettaboutit. Lots of good action pics. Post them if you have any questions. There were about 66 shooters/competitors. 3 courses of fire, and COF required 2 weapons. Shotgun to Rifle, Pistol to Shotgun, and Rifle to Pistol where the stages. All weapons were held for starting, and laid on a table to pick up for the transition. It was a safety thing since there were about 20 new shooters, myself included. COF1- Shotgun at clays starting from start position, shoot clays available, then move to shooting position 2, engage remaining clays with shotgun. Safe weapon and put in box. Move over to pre-staged rifle, put on spool and shoot 3 reactives at 100, then 200. Move to second spool and re-engage 3 reactives at 100 then 200. End of course. Vids: - Not of me, but you get the idea of COF COF #1 (1 of 3) COF #1 (2 of 3) COF # 1 (3 of 3) COF2 - Pistol to shotgun - Start with pistol at low ready, Start by engaging 6 plates at 15yds or so. Then texas star. Safe weapon and put in box. Pick up shotgun, and engage 15 pepper poppers, which where pretty close together so you could hit more than 1 at a time. Vid:COF #2 - Again, not me. COF3 - Rifle to Pistol - Start with weapon ready, off safe. Start and engage 3 reactives at 100, left to right, or right to left, move over on barrier, and re-engage reactives. move to 1st box, 1 shot per target on same reactives. Safe weapon, and put in Box, pick up pistol, move back to same shooting box, load mag, and chamber, Engage 8-10 pepper poppers, move to second shooting box and engage remaining poppers, with reload as needed Vid: COF #3 Here's a few of me that got in the mix: COF2 - Transition to Shotgun. Kneeling to get a better angle on the poppers. Same Same Here's Me at COF3, Sucking at rifle. I couldn't hit the targets at 100 for shit. Yet I did ok on the COF1. I'm not good with slightly support standing rifle. Other side of target: Not Me, but shows a good shot of rifle part of COF1 Scores haven't been posted yet, but here's my times for the COFs: COF 1 - 99.02sec COF 2 - 36.35sec COF 3 - 108.08sec Pistol used was my Sig P228, Bone stock, but I used 226 mags with x-tender. Rifle used was my CMMG bargain bin 16" carbine with HBAR, bone stock with less than 200rnds through it. Shotgun was my Mossberg 500 Persuader that was a week old, less than 50 through it. Zero Malfunctions on any of them. Though there were quite a few semi-auto shotgun malfunctions. It was a great time, and the sun-burn I got proves it. The shoot was great and very accepting of new shooters, since all targets were reactive. It was slow to get all 66 shooters through all of the COFs, but it was fun to watch. I loved it, and hope to get more into the shooting sports.
