APS – 06-27-08 – Centerfire Tac/Prec Match Report

This past Saturday we had our monthly Tac/Prec Rifle Match at A Place to Shoot in Saugus, California. The day was sunny, warm and surprisingly not very windy though our usual morning thermals whipping through our little canyon made some of the longer shots a challenge.

Due to this matches close proximity to this years SCPRC this match concentrated a little more on precision with targets in all but one stage being 1 MOA or less for the range.

Plaques were awarded to the top three competitors as follows: First Place – John Rose; Second Place – Jason Chan; Third Place – Ryan Kerr.

The following is a breakdown of the six courses of fire:

Stage I – 100 Yard CBS

Self explanatory – this was a one shot take all stage with the shooters taking their CBS at a 1” dot 100 yards away. Surprisingly only one or the ten shooters hit their CBS for the 100 points.

Stage II – 200 YARD DOT DRILL

The second course of fire is pretty explanatory from its title. In this stage the shooters engaged a 2-inch dot from prone at 200 yards. Each hit counted 20 points for a total of 100 points for this stage. No one cleaned this stage but two shooters did walk away with 80 points for this stage.

Stage III – 300 YARD DOT DRILL

The second course of fire is pretty explanatory from its title. In this stage the shooters engaged a 3-inch dot from prone at 200 yards. Each hit counted 20 points for a total of 100 points for this stage. No one cleaned this stage but two shooters did walk away with 80 points for this stage.

Stage IV – KNOW YOUR LIMIT

This stage was a “know your limit” with a total of six dots ranging in size from 1.5” decreasing to .5”. The dots were white in a black square. The rules were that you could stop anywhere in the process you wanted but if you missed (including hitting the black area around the dot) you zeroed your score for the entire target. Unfortunately everyone zeroed his score.

Stage V – OVER A BARREL BAD SANTA

In this stage Santa went nuts due to high fuel and feed prices and took a hostage. Our shooters’ job was to take out Santa with one round without harming the hostage. If they were successful in their mission the shooter received 100 points. However, if they harmed the hostage it was an automatic 100-point deduction. Santa had a bad day today with six of the ten competitors accomplishing their mission. The remaining four, though not taking out Santa also left the hostage unscathed.

STAGE VI- SNIPER ON THE CAN

You never know when duty calls. In this stage the shooters started the stage inside a portable toilet (often referred to as a “gump”) and at the sound of the buzzer opened the door and while remaining in the “gump” engaged a mini popper at 95 yards and a 4” “lollypop” popper at 110 yards. While they were engaging the target, their concentration was further taxed by the noise, movement and vibration caused by the “gump” being beat on and shook by the match staff. Each target counted 50 points for a total of 100 points for the stage. Numerous shooters were able to hit one of the two targets and one shooter was able to weather the storm and drop both targets.

**After the match it became apparent that two shooters were tied for the third place position. This was resolve with a dum dum shoot off. Similar to a five round dot drill that is shot in prone at 100 yards, except instead of 1” dots the targets were Dum Dum suckers which measure around ” in diameter. The third place winner won with 3 hits.

All in all it was a very good match and all did very well.

What is that thing on Ryan's hand?

I think you meant my/ Jason's hand :) It's a "shooting glove" from Creedmore Sports. I still prefer a rear bag when prone or when I can rest the butt against something.. but the glove is actually rather nice for the positional stuff or when rear rests are forbidden (SCPRC).

Yeah, I shot the whole thing with just a glove as well. Its not quite as stable as a bag, but it really works in any other position besides prone. Didn't hurt me too bad prone either, I guess. Jasons glove is pretty cool.

I think Ryan is superstitious.. he wears the same shirt every time he shoots :) I know you're supposed to train like you fight and all.. but he really takes it to heart!

I think I'll start wearing a "range shirt" too.. my girl got me a shirt w/ my avatar :D

Similar I guess. I had a different one in April (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showpost.php?p=1173950&postcount=29)and I did better! I'll have to go back to wearing that one.

Probably a negative aura that's generated from the sacrilegious act of wearing a USO shirt when shooting with S&B..

You know, that glove looks like you have a cast on a broken hand, Jason. ;)
