June ACTS Match

Good match! A little fuzzy on stage descriptions, but guys found some interesting ways to shoot it anyway. My cameraman Pete wins for style points; he was determined to shoot every double-tap from a different position, including some weak-side contortions (I'll try to get his YouTube link for y'all). Those wacky AK gunners!

As for me...I cudda bin a contendah! I got one no-shoot and THREE &%$^ing FTEs!! (I saved the killer FTE vid for last.) So, I'll be down in the bottom third for sure. We had some new guys this month, but the one who shot with us could be the Match Winner. Lotsa LE and Corrections guys are taking a liking to this format.

    That looks like fun!

    Closest I've been to that sort of fun & games on a shooting range is one Practical Pistol set in the early '90's. Just me and my Series '70; I wasn't prepared for all the necessities (I had only a crossdraw holster, not allowed; couple magazines short, had to borrow those; but I caused lots of raised eyebrows with my Arizona-learned pistol prowess. Of course the lightning-fast 9's with 15 rnd mags were the thing then. Hmmmph. I'll never own a 9.

    I'd like to get back into that game one day. Of course, I'd have to get a real Black Rifle; my couple of SKS carbines wouldn't fit into that scene. (But they are fun!)

    [sheepish]I was shooting a Glock 19. [/sheepish] I'll continue to do so while ammo prices are so high. I'm saving my .40s and .45s for the games that actually honor power factor.
