Why are you reading about pistol shooting on a Tactical Rifle website? Easy answer! A lot of tactical rifle matches are starting to integrate pistol work! More and more tactical rifle competitions are starting to include stages that include some pistol targets. Many of these stages portray a sort of “fight your way to the rifle with your pistol” sort of scenario. At the 2015 Sniper’s Hide Cup one stage had you start by engaging targets from the drivers seat of an SUV through the passenger side windows with your pistol. You were then able to retrieve your rifle from the back seat and engage rifle targets at distance from the hood and beneath the engine compartment.
