Light Posting This Week

With the bedroom remodel wrapped up it's time for me to turn my attention to an upcoming event. The Hard As Hell 3 Gun Shoot. It starts Friday and runs through Sunday with a Team night shoot on Saturday. I'm on Team 3 Gun Challenged with mt friend and coach.

We met today and worked on some stuff. Mostly getting zeroed in on the long stage, trying out some of the obstacles and squaring away our gear. This is a different kind of 3 Gun match. The emphasis is on challenging and difficult obstacle strewn stages. I'm running a thumb break holster and flap mag pouches because the last thing I want to see is my handgun rolling across the stage sans attached hand. It'll also be cold so layering is definitely indicated.

Lu has agreed to be my gear monkey. She'll be toting range bags, excess ammo and whatever firearm(s) I'm not actively shooting. I'm bringing 4, red dot AR, scoped AR, 870 shotgun and a Sig P226. With mags, on board ammunition and miscellaneous stuff I figure I'll be weighing in somewhere around fully grown gorilla. She'll also be responsible for feeding me and making sure I hydrate. I tend to forget those little things in the heat of competition and bonking is a very real likelihood here.

We'll take lots of photos and maybe even a video or two. If I don't suck too badly. Like always, if things go south I'll delete this post and swear such a thing never, ever happened. For today I'll be moving a few things on the bat belt and working over the guns to make sure they at least will run reasonably well. Friday morning it will be time to jump straight into the fire.

Pray for me, this could get ugly.

Sounds like a lot of fun, Six! I got to go to funshows the last 2 weekends, and off the weather does not turn ugly this weekend will be an all day dog adoption event.

Have a great time and a safe shoot!

You need a gun buggy http://www.amazon.com/Do-All-Outdoors-Buggy-Shooting-Cart/dp/B009Z6M5V2 - until you get one, find an old baby carrier and use it - long guns lean nicely, secured with Velcro. They often have storage for all the boxes and bags...
