That is a Mini Mo, and I think y'all are gonna develop a love/hate relationship with it.

Stage 1 - Well F@ck Presented by MOA Targets LLC

So the apocalypse has happened. You're a ways from home and all you have is your pistol. You need a rifle, and you know just the gangbangers house where to get it. But you never can tell what kind of rifle they're gonna have.

Stage your rifle to the side. Draw one of three colors. On the buzzer, engage the Mini Mo target from 10 yards. This target will require you to hit the "bullseye" chest plate, which will raise the head target. You will then shoot the head target, knocking it down and resetting. Reholster your pistol. Run to the board matching the color you drew. Pick up the rifle behind that board. It is loaded with an unknown amount of ammo. Engage 5 rifle targets. If you run out of rifle ammo, you may draw your pistol and finish the targets. Rifle targets require 1 hit to neutralize with the rifle, 2 hits to neutralize with the pistol.

Required pistol hits - 2
Required rifle hits - 5 from a stage gun

Mantis sponsor Mail day! They put up 5 Mantis X's for the prize table. Of course, if you don't wanna wait to upgrade your dryfire, you should go order one. It may be the difference between a "meh" performance and a win.

Hi, probably a dumb question.... I see 5k events usually have like 5 or 6 stages.

Would a 10k have like 8 or 9 stages, or is it still around 5 but just longer distances to travel?

Although this may not be applicable to this match, most Run and Guns have 1 stage for each kilometer in distance run. And if the terrain is not challenging enough, the match director will insert an obstacle to make sure it is not just a sprint to the next stage. The common format is something like this:

5K = 4-5 stages with 3-4 obstacles
10K = 8-10 stages with 6-8 obstacles

Of course the location determines where the stages can safely be and how many. In the case of Stimpy's RNG, the 5K starts and stops at a specific location, but due to range requirements, the 10K is the 5k run a second time without stopping at the 5K finish. I didn't look to see if he made the second lap run backwards to change things up a little.

Negative, there is a 15 minute grace period for reloading at my match.

Going easy on them, eh?

I guess my verbage was a little hazy. I should have said something like, when reaching the 5K finish line, they continue the race by running the course again for a total of 10K.

I am stopping at the 5K finish line sometime on Friday. I am thinking of packing an MRE with me so I can stop for lunch if need be.

This particular 10K has 8 stages. I had 9 last year and it was nearly impossible to staff. Hopefully 8 doesn't prove crazy tough to do.

We have another sponsor!!!! Alexander Arms is one of my favorite modern rifle companies. They specialize in awesome calibers and other interesting takes on the AR15. A black AR in 5.56 is boring, step up your game to 6.8, .50 Beowulf, or even better.338 Lapua! You can find them Instagram, Facebook and on their website at www.alexanderarms.com
