The Georgia Mountain Tactical Shooting Club had their annual shoot at Toccoa PD training facility. The match consisted of two stages of 40 rounds each although a shooter could fire more than the minimum number of rounds.

The first stage took place on the standard range. There were five shooting positions at which the shooter addressed four targets each. The first station was at about 15 yards or so, and you got closer to the targets with each successive stage with the final station being at about five yards.

After the first stage, I was in the top three. I got full target points and had a pretty good time. I did speed reloads every two stations while on the move and never going to slide lock.

The second stage was in the shoot house. There were 20 targets up in the house, and the shooter had to find and address each target with two rounds each. My time was respectable, and I got full target points for each target I addressed; however, I failed to address one of the targets and not only lost those 20 target points while also taking a five second penalty.

I ended up finishing 7th out of 29.

It was a great time today! I enjoyed the courses of fire and had a good day with a good friend. I didn't do as well as JL but that was to be expected, ... for now! :)

Hey, I scared a few of those targets instead of actually hitting them in the first stage. I was trying to be consistent. :)

Sorry I missed it. Sounds like fun. I had a full weekend ... in-laws visiting, the 5k this morning for Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, then a visit to the Thomasville furniture store. I might need to take a second job.

Here is my run on the shoot house. I see lots of things I did wrong, both from a match perspective as well as a real life scenario. This is the reason I really like to video the shoots as well as just practice at the range because it allows me to come back later and review how I did things, or in some cases, didn't do things.

That is super! It looks like a ton of fun...

Thanks for posting your video, Ron...

I'm not sure if I could get over dropping my nice mags in the dirt, though...

It was a blast. I really enjoyed it and it was the first time I had gotten to do something like that shoot house. Lots of fun and a learning experience for me as well. Dropping the mags just came natural. Their plastic and relatively cheap so worst case scenario, I buy a new one, but nothing happened to any of them.

You looked like the crazy guy at the mall shooting people at random. lol.

I am anxious to hear more about this course of fire verbally. It looked like you were going through the same sections more than once but I'm sure that wasn't the case. Also, surprising no use of cover ... just walking up to target and firing. Wouldn't they have returned fire before you engaged them in real life?

I do love the shoot house though ... very cool.

Well, as I said, I learned a lot but keep in mind. This was a course based on time. I was upset that I didn't run faster. It was not about trying to clear the place.

I know it wasn't about clearing the place of you would have used cover. I was just comparing it to IDPA where you have to use cover or get dinged. I think it looked more like USPSA with the running and gunning.

In the days when revolvers where the norm, it was common for officers on the range to dump their empty brass into their hands and then put it in their pocket to keep from having to pick up brass at the end of a shooting session.

Studies of officer involved shootings revealed that dead officers were being found with empty brass in their pockets from where they had reverted to their muscle memory from the range.

Moral of the story is to drop the empties. They do you no good.

Good point...

You should train like it's real...
