What are the making’s of a good match? Organization, Amenities, Professionalism, and Price are what I’ve found to be pretty important when comparing one match to another. T3 (Trigger Time Training) has this pretty well figured out and it shows with the progression of the match since it’s inception. I was fortunate enough to attend one of T3’s first monthly matches and several since. It’s been refreshing to watch the T3 Monthly Match evolve.
I can genuinely say that using the Sunrise Tactical Wrist Coach for shooting, competition, and evaluation prior to review has been a genuinely pleasant experience. There are plenty of strategies for keeping your dope handy while shooting. Lots of guys paste a drop chart on the side of their rifle. Many will just print the information out, laminate it, and tie it to their scope. Some run their dope off a phone or ballistic computer and still more will just write it down on a pad and drop that next to their gun as they shoot. I’ve tried all those solutions and while I can say they all work, I wasn’t really a fan of any of them.
We’re no strangers to TAB Gear products at AccuracyTech. Today we’re taking a look at the TAB Gear Silent Ammo Carrier. The idea is pretty simple but it’s also pretty slick. We’ve been using it to manage ammunition for a while now and have had a positive experience with the TAB Gear Silent Ammo Carrier. It has proven to be a very useful way to lug ammunition around a field match while still remaining accessible for reloading magazines between stages.
We had so much fun at the 2012 Snipers Hide Cup that we had to give it another go this year. The competition and its organizers did not disappoint! The 2013 Snipers Hide Cup raised the bar over last year in a number of ways. The same staff that was responsible for last year’s competition returned this year. The 2013 Snipers Hide Cup was run by Competition Dynamics. Zak Smith returned with Ray Sanchez as the Match Director and Assistant Match Director. They did an outstanding job. The list of competitors grew from approximately 90 competitors last year to over 120 this year and the timing and progression of competitors through the stages was the same. Frank Galli, owner of Snipers Hide LLC, again ran the match promotion. Helping out in a big way were Jeff and Ann from Competition Dynamics that assisted with logistics and match promotion by the numerous sponsors. When it was all put together what we wound up with was one of the largest, most challenging, most efficient, and most fun tactical rifle matches in the world!
