Default Anyone know of any tactical/precision rifle matches in nor cal that allow semi autos?

Apparently semi auto's on steel are a "safety concern" at sac valley for their tactical type precision matches. Although, I haven't been able to get an answer as to why... I guess it's because they are evil black rifles...

Anyways, I'm running an OBR in a work capacity. I understand I won't be competitive going up against all the lasers but I'd like to do some more positional/tactical type shooting outside of what I get to do at training. I have shot a few of the 6x6x6 matches/highpower type matches but I'm interested in the tactical type matches that focus more on funky positions/scenarios etc. Anyone with info please feel free to share.

I'm not sure if there is anything like this up in NorCal (except for the annual Bay Area Rifle Championship), but down in SoCal we have the Taran Tactical Innovations Rifle Series match. It's a run-n-gun match for rifles with engagements from CQB-400 yards on a mix of paper and steel.

Chabot is having it's 3-gun precision match (rifle only) on July 31. Semi autos are good to go.

The Chabot 3gun precision match is held at the 200yd range. Shooting is done from various positions (Top of table/ slanted roof top/ shooting through brush, etc.) at targets from 180 to 220 yds. Targets are typically 3-4" in diameter. 24 to 30 rd stage if you don't miss. Last time I think folks with semi autos were using around 60- 100 rounds to clear a stage....

Nothing I know of in NorCal, but the Oregon Sniper Challenge has a fun course of fire and I ran my OBR in it. Mil/LE only. http://www.coldboreops.com/oregon-sniper-challenge-1/

I'm not sure why the dudes at NCPPRC don't allow semi-autos. Maybe one of them can chime in here.

Semis have a big advantage at Chabot, you'll see it . I managed a 2nd with a bolt gun but got beat by a guy with a SPR. :| They should split the category.

That seems like a very simple solution to me.

Gassers (can) have an advantage at shorter range courses of fire with multiple targets and time restrictions...assuming you aren't require to shoot .25 MOA targets. Chabot sounds like that kind of match.

I shot a 7.62-only comp a few years ago with my 18" OBR. Stages ranged from 25-900 yards. I had the only gas gun out of nearly 70 shooters and I was able to dominate the 200-yard timed multi-position stage, and I did much better in the 600-yard multiple movers stage than I would have with a bolt-gun, because of my semi-auto capacity and the fact that they didn't deduct points for misses. But when we moved to 900 yards I was at the back of the pack because the 18" barrel and loss of gas combined to give me a much lower velocity than the bolt-gunners. I ended up in the top 50% due to performance on the closer range stages, but sucked eggs on the windy 900 yard line.

Do you feel that a adjustible gas block you can turn off would help ? If so how much ?

I don't think that would be at all practical.

Most folks at Chabot tac matches don't care about the score... they are there to try different shooting techniques. A shooter can game it if they were so inclined (i.e. shoot rounds at the dirt from a distance, and then move up close to make up for the misses to "save" time). But there are no prizes or awards.
The long time Chabot match participants refer to these as "outlaw" matches, because they do not follow the strict guidelines of sanctioned bodies and is for "bring whatever you've got as long as it is safe". Doesn't have to fit in a "box" or have a certain number of rounds loaded to be fair with everyone else.
