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.
