Squad 2 for the afternoon

Questions: 1) Is a sling necessary? 2) $12 for a chamber flag at Cabelas! Anyone know anywhere else I could pick one up?

What's the farthest distance you guys normally shoot at this?

RDS should be good to go?

The one I went to, they had the 600 yard range setup where you engaged some targets from 30 yards out to a few hundred yards, then ran up and re-engaged the furthest targets at a closer distance.

So I'd say you can expect anywhere from 3 yards to 200 yards.

I have a chamber flag I can give you, but I'm not signed up for this month. I'm not sure I can make it as I have family in town that weekend. I'm still trying to figure out my schedule.

Sling isn't necessary for the event, but, IMHO - a sling is necessary for every rifle.

for a chamber flag

you could probably use a bright zip tie, etc.... need not be a traditional chamber flag.

No sling needed but good to bring to practice with; you may find that your attachments or sling don't work well or impede other attachments, functions, etc when running it under "stress." same as with your other gear, pouches, mags, optics, etc. better to find out there than...

I usually come away with 2 to 3+ things about my gear and/or me that I need to improve after each pr shoot. worth it for me.

The shooting to the left of the barricade doesn't specify if its weak hand shooting. 200 yards at full IPSC target...I'll miss

I made my own chamber flag I'm still unsure if I will bring a sling. I'm wondering who in their right mind would actually use a sling in real life scenarios I can see military and police applications, but none of my rifles have slings on them. They are a PIA when hunting, if I bag a deer, I strap it on my pack so I can drag the deer out, otherwise I carry it.

This will be an interesting shoot for me, first time with the AR off the bench. I don't have mag carriers, guess my pockets will do. Guess I will learn a lot from observing, just getting from box to box will be a different experience with a rifle, I guess its like IDPA and IPSC, smooth is fast.

That pretty much sums it up Rick.

Key points, be able to swap mags without looking - practice pulling mags out of your pockets and driving them home.

You *must* be able to flick your safety to fire, and back to safety without thinking about it. Whenever you move, you must be on SAFE.

You will probably be engaging targets from 7 yards to 200 yards - be aware of your bullets point of impact at those distances. When I engaged a target at 7 feet, I nicked the hostage in the shoulder because I forgot to keep in mind the hold-over at such a close distance.

Unfortunately I have to back out for this weekend. Doc says I need to take it easy for another week - so I'm going to be spending time withe the family. I'll have to catch up with you and Samal another time.

will see - I fumbled with a reload on stage 1, shot a no-shoot - 1/4" off the edge of the target - they had maybe 6" of the target showing between 2 no-shoots! at the "too many hostages" and I aced the long distance - all targets were hit with the first round, under a minute total time - even 200 yards week-handed was not much of a problem with Eotech+3x

Ouch, at least you were aware of it, Rick. I've seen guys with terrible trigger discipline and muzzle control that really had no clue what they were doing wrong. They were just a half-click away from causing someone some hurt.
Hopefully you were pointed down-range and a DQ will stick in your craw that it won't happen again. I'm glad no one got hurt.

Just thought of something as I posted this - if you had flipped to Safe the second you were done engaging targets, this couldn't have happened. Not rubbing it in, just pointing out what could have saved you. Always on safe until you're engaging the target. As soon as your done engaging the target, you should instinctively click back to Safe.

close your blinds at home, walk around all day with your rifle and engage the safety between fire and safe to practice.

Hopefully you were pointed down-range and a DQ will stick in your craw that it won't happen again. I'm glad no one got hurt.

Just thought of something as I posted this - if you had flipped to Safe the second you were done engaging targets, this couldn't have happened. Not rubbing it in, just pointing out what could have saved you. Always on safe until you're engaging the target. As soon as your done engaging the target, you should instinctively click back to Safe.
Trust me Eric its stuck in my craw! In the all the years I have been shooting, I have never AD and DQ'd myself. The rifle was pointing down range. I have been practicing mag changes and feeling for the safety everyday. Jesus its going to be super hard to show my face at the next one :red

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.
