Hey everyone it’s your favorite Langobard from the Lands of the North again. It’s confession time. There’s something I’ve been keeping from all of you. It’s important considering our subject material here at Accuracy-Tech. Are we ready for this? Here it goes. Until recently I had never shot in a …
So the focus of today’s article is going to be competition shooting. Specifically, how to get started and what some of the benefits can be! A lot of guys are interested in shooting in a match and getting started with competition shooting. Unfortunately, a lot of folks are also not sure what to expect at a match. They aren’t sure it’s going to be worth their time and there are some good reasons for wondering. The idea here is to talk about the different levels of competition and what goes on at the matches. This way anybody who’s interested in competing has a good sense of what to expect and what’s required to show up and get their feet wet!
This week’s topic of discussion is going to be scoring errors in competition, and how to eliminate them! If you’re a precision rifle shooter, regardless of which discipline you prefer, you’ll probably find yourself at some sort of match or competition eventually. We’re currently living in a time when the Tactical/Practical Rifle matches, like those found in the Precision Rifle Series, are booming. This style of rifle competition is really starting to attract attention, new shooters, and some sponsorship from the Shooting Industry. So why hasn’t it evolved to the levels we see with other sports like USPSA Handgun? Or 3 Gun Matches? Frankly, it comes down to the bottom basic necessity of a sport, fans and new competitors!
The Guardian Long Range Competition is something I’ve been somewhat vaguely aware of for a while and recently it’s been getting more attention, with good cause. The Guardian Long Range Competition is a good cause by definition, so I’m happy to see it gaining some steam and traction in the Precision Shooting Community. The Guardian Long Range Competition is a long range shooting match held at different venues around the country. It’s sole purpose is to raise money to aid the work of Bethany Christian Services, who seek to do all they can to aid the Orphan Child problems we face worldwide.
This article was inspired by my recent experience at the 2015 Sniper’s Hide Cup. The majority of the first day, and all of the first morning, were wet-windy-cold! I had done a few things to prepare and try to better outfit myself for the conditions. Some of it worked great, some of it worked less than great. However, as the tactical rifle competition scene gets more popular and more people start to participate, more people will find themselves shooting in poor weather. So in this article we’re going to go over some simple stuff you can do to prepare yourself and your rifle for a moist outing whether you are going to the range, on a hunting trip, or you happen to be one of our Military guys deployed in a wet environment. The whole idea here is to keep yourself, and the rifle, as dry and comfortable as possible so you and rifle function better as a system despite the conditions!
