European Rifle Championships – Stage 2

July 23, 2009

Stage 2 was a 8 round/40 point short course with 4 targets at about 40 meters.  The rifle started unloaded, magazine out, laying on the platform.

You can’t really win the match on stages like this but you sure can lose it.   Note that none of the shooters in the video uses the prop as a rest.  We all man up and shoot the targets offhand despite the presence of the no-shoots.   I watched some other shooters use the prop and it was a serious time killer.   The shots were just not technical enough to need a rest.

Nothing really spectacular for me but the loading of the rifle went very smooth.   Unloaded starts are not common in the U.S. but you should practice them if you are planning on shooting IPSC rifle.
