Max: Are you the MD?

 

yes. my plan right now is to either shoot staff match, or shoot stages prior to staff match to vet them, and remove my scores from the match so I can act as RM as well.

So I see that there is a PCC division as well as a carbine division.  Is it all the same match regardless of division, or are there distant rifle targets for those shooting carbine division?  

 

Disregard--If I'd actually read the info on Practiscore, I would have answered my questions.

As this is a Hit Factor scoring match, will you be recognizing Major vs. Minor power factor?

No, it'll be minor all guns and divisions. No chrono either.

Amazing stages.  I had a blast attending my first two gun match.  That being said, as my first multi-gun match I do not have much to compare it to being mostly a USPSA shooter.  I think some things can be done in regards to consistency amongst RO teams, so the shooters know what exactly to expect can be improved upon.  The match ran pretty smoothly despite the ridiculous wind and sand at that range.  Moon dust essentially got into everything so if you did not plan accordingly even Glocks were having issues.  I did not see any targets fly away and there was only reshoot administered due to steel falling down during a course of fire with our Squad so that alone was an amazing feet and great planning by the staff.  Cobalt Kinetics range is pretty amazing.

 

The other item I would like to see revisited is the Kilo zone on the targets.  Essentially the majority of the head box is the kilo zone where one shot means double alpha.  The fact this zone is mostly a head shot and not the whole head box makes it a pretty risky shot to incorporate in stage plans for the most part.  I would like to see the whole head box, maybe the zone extend an inch or inch and a half into the body of the target so game planning of only shooting Kilos actually becomes a viable option for certain target presentations.   The argument against this might be you do not want it to be too easy of a shot, but I do not think in the Kilo Zones current presentation on the target that many would use that as a viable plan in most target presentations, and everyone is shooting at the same target.  Everyone has the same chance to hit a Kilo regardless of the size of the Kilo Zone.  Also this brings another dimension to this sort of target in that if you do not think about instituting using Kilos as a viable option might be at a disadvantage when shooting certain courses of fire.  I love the fact the scoring is Hit Factor based and NOT time plus.  If this format goes to time plus scoring the Kilo zone is a waste in my eyes.

 

I understand that this might make scoring a nightmare, but I would also like to see PCC scored as minor and Carbine scored as major.  Probably not realistic but it is a thought.

 

All in all in intend on attending more matches with this format.  You learn a lot about your equipment, equipment choices, belts layout etc.   Its also a blast to shoot carbine anytime.

Hello

 

I discovered your competition on You Tube


It looks absolutely awesome and a lot of fun, is it possible to compete as a non-American?
We come from Switzerland and shoot otherwise various IPSC competitions in Europe.

 

Best regards from the cheese and chocolate country

Just wanted to add a quick video for anyone curious about the match.  It was an amazing match, and I will absolutely be back next year.  Max and his crew did a wonderful job, and should be commended.

The match was in St. George, UT--which is incredible--so I took a few days after the match to do some mountain biking in the area.  Riding the mesas in the area was absolutely incredible.

 

Two thumbs up, would do again!
