I just returned from my first IPSC Shotgun match, the Shotgun World Shoot in France where I placed atleast above last place. Anyone else here with who actually shoot matches in IPSC/USPSA/2-Gun/3-Gun or similar?

Sweet, you didn't get disqualified. That's step #1. What kind of shotgun are you using?

I shoot a couple of local 3-gun events and help run them at my "home" range. I usually do pretty well, like 5-8 out of 50-60.

I've been working out issues as they come up. I recently modified the loading port on my shotgun a little bit to speed up quad loads. Got a new holster for the pistol. Replaced my Bolt Carrier Group with a lightweight BCG, installed a JP Silent Captured (Buffer) Spring, and adjustable gas block. I had some issues with the BCG, but it turned out the Gas Key was not staked properly, and the gas key came loose. After tightening it down and staking the shit out of it, the AR is running fucking awesome.

Had another match yesterday, with some impossible targets, some fucked up scoring, and my camera man mistook the picture button for the video button. So I've got some lovely still pictures of the starts and ends of my runs. Pictured is the end of one stage where you had a choice:

Pistol, 10 yards, 3 KnockDown targets, 2 medium size hanging steel (2 hits each)
Pistol, 7 yards, 2 KD targets, 2 very small hanging steel (1 hit each)

If you look at the picture, you can see I engaged the smaller targets. The left one is probably 1.5x3 inches, as the 9mm impact is half the size. First shot hits with the pistol.

But overall, I got third. And we had a good time. It's much easier when the top shooters are somewhere else.

One stage had a bunch of shotgun targets. 7 KD steel at increasing ranges, a KD popper which triggered a clay thrower, and 2 slug targets. For the KD steel, full choke would have been great. For the slugs, the max choke Benelli says you can use is Improved Cylinder. So, wtf. I left the last couple KD steel standing, because the birdshot wouldn't move it. Only 2 shooters had no penalties (excluding the 2G guys) and the average penalty was 43 seconds. Name that stage "Set Sail for Fail."

There's a scoring method called Time Plus Points. Which is actually just points, based on your time vs top time.

Raw Time + Penalties - Bonuses = Final Time
Top guy's Final Time = 100 points
Top time / Your time * 100 points = Your points

So if the top time was 30 seconds, and you got 60 seconds, you get half the points.
30/60 * 100 = 50 points.

So that's all fine and great right? Well they also had 2-Gunners, which didn't have to engage the shotgun targets at all. So having to shoot only 2/3 of the course, they completely skewed the scoring, despite one 2G guy having a higher final time than my buddy.

So, whatevs. I ordered Light Modified and Improved Modified chokes for my shotgun and a Geissele ACH charging handle for the AR.

  I shot a pistol competition on Saturday and had a blast. No scores yet, and there were some serious team shooters and very accomplished SWAT cops and what not in the mix. I know I didn't win by a long shot, but I'm hoping to be in the top 20% or so. 150 shooters, spread across Limited, Open, and PCC categories. Plus, it was a charity benefit event so that's double plus good.

Shot it mostly mistake free. Had some of the guys in my squad, the dudes who were winning, give me props on a few of my stages. Nice people all around. Main goof I had was on this in the video stage where I didn't plan a mag chance before the second set of paper targets. Had a decent speed reload on that one so didn't lose a TON of time. Also, poppers were set up in a bowling pin formation and my initial plan was to just drill out the center then clean up the edges. Well...they didn't fall quite fast enough for my plan to work so I had to adjust.

Gotta find more competitions to shoot. August is a long way away for my second visit to the 2-gun shoot that I did last year.

Yeah, not bad at all. Good plan taking it at your own pace. And the slower you think it's going, the faster it probably is.

My priorities:
1. Don't get DQ'ed
2. Shoot clean and minimize penalties
3. Shoot fast

So many times I've seen people go too fast and just miss, miss, miss. Or rack up a shit ton of penalties.

Check out practiscore, that's the app a lot of clubs use on little tablets to keep score. You can search for clubs and matches through that.


Or go to the shooting range's website and check their calendar, then find the club website.

Ken Hackathorn: The Origins of IPSC, IDPA & 3 Gun

Jeff Cooper believed... that anyone who didn't shoot a 45 caliber 1911 was a commie pinko faggot liberal.

Love it.

I mean, he also thought the scout rifle was relevant about 20 years past any time it would have been.

I'm signing up for Finnish Brutality which is in August in Finland. It will be my first 2-Gun match, and I'm in fucking horrible shape. Me and a buddy will be sharing an Arsenal SAR-M1 (slr106 in the states?) in 5.56. I've paid for it, I just don't own it yet. I'll be shooting in Irons with a stock Glock 17.

I used to shoot CPSA, if that counts?

First monday after Finnish Brutality. It's the toughest match I've ever shot, and I'd love to do all over again. I competed in Irons division because I didn't want to hassle with getting a proper optics for my AK, and the irons are already pretty gosh darn accurate.
I timed out on 4 out of 6 stages, still one of the best matches I've shot. My favorite stage had 8 rounds of rifle shooting, 10 rounds of pistol (I used more because I didn't aim properly) dragging a doll with a broken leg 50 yards, and you do it all while wearing a gas mask. It sucked less than I expected.

10/10, would recommend attending this match if possible and they decide to do it again.

Not impressed with the Hudson. It's fast, but this match was all about 3" squares at 15 yards. Granted I haven't been shooting much lately, but I think I would have done better with the VP.
