Not the fify....but

Postby Hognuts » Tue 28 Apr, 2009 8:24 pm

I am going to a little competition shoot here on Saturday. They do not allow the big boys, but the organizer is a fifty owner and is trying to set up something for strictly the big dawgs. I'll see how I do with the 308 this weekend and then I will keep you posted on whether he gets anything put together for the fifty shooters. The competition this weekend is sixty rounds at various known distances out to 600 yards. Should be a good test for the BORS system on the dpms 308. I'll get back to ya on Saturday afternoon to post my results.....good, bad, or indifferent ;)

Good luck Hognuts. Let us know how you did. I have a couple of Law Enforcement records you can shoot for. My last compitition from 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600yrds, I shot a 300 out of 300 with all XXXX new LE coarse record. The 200yrd tactical comp you run 100yds with all your gear and as soon as the first shooter gets to the the firing line the timer starts with only 20 seconds 5rds prone. My 5rnd group measured .35 also a new coares record. My 100yrd standing with a hasty sling 5rnd just right at .50 also a LE record. I've always wanted to tell somebody that because in LE theres no awards and unless your a SNIPER no one give a S%#T.

That's great shooting, Tbuck..... You should go to some of the matches at Gunsite. You'll certainly get all manner of "trinkets, ribbons, etc. to take home....They give the stuff out like candy...... :mrgreen:

I went to the competition on Saturday. I did not bring home any ribbons ( in this case medals) I was all over the place with the .308. It was pretty windy out, but I was doing pretty good on the moving targets and some of the hostage shots. It seemed like the gimme shots were the ones that I was blowing. Anyway more training is in my future. Good shooting shadow and tbuck. I will be aspiring to those levels. Hognuts out.

If moving targets are not a problem and you need work on the stationary ones work on your breathing and trigger control. Lots and lots of dry fire practice.

That is sound advice. I definitely need more work. I think I was a little amped up because it WAS a competition rather than just me and my rifle in the desert shooting, I think I was rushing things and slapping the trigger rather than concentrating on my fundamentals. I was pretty disappointed because I had been shooting pretty well with that rifle when not under the stress of time constraints and just the general "vibe" of the competition.

Well if you are serious about competition then you need to stress your self. Try running 100 yards hit the bench load you rifle and fire three rounds now secure the rifle step away. Now think of your fundementals, did I take two good breaths and pause during the exhail of the third breath between each shot and did I squeeze the trigger, did I see the flash or smoke, did I have good follow up. Don't be afraid to put your self through the paces you really only have one true competitor and that is your self you can't convence him that your good you have to prove it.

This was the first time that I have tried an actual competition, I have done some training under stress at the Front Sight courses that I have attended, but I hear you, I definitely need some work on those fundamentals when under stress. I have a big shoot coming up in August and I definitely want to make a better showing than that, I know that I am capable of much better.

You shot the comp and seem to know where your weaknesses are.Set targets up at the distances that were used in the comp and practice,practice,practice.I know shooters who can run up and down a mountain plunk themselves down and shoot without a problem in training.Put them in a competition and they seem to get antsy when the eye's are upon them.They don't completely fall apart,but they don't shoot as good as I know they can.This was your first comp,learn from your mistakes and get to another comp as soon as you can.It will build up your confidence and you'll be shooting better in no time.Did I mention practice.
