2018 RBGC Run-and-Gun

It's official!

The board approved a Run-and-Gun tonight.

Probably 5 stages, so I need 10 ROs minimum.

DATE IS NOW CONFIRMED 3-31-2018

It will be a 5k.

And yes...there will be an ammo-expensive MP2 stage.

I should be able to come help RO.
If needed, I'll try to round up some of the other locals to help as well.

Close, but no. I am safely still a north Ga resident. Turns out, I liked my house and little bit of property a lot more than anything on the market. Looks like y'all are stuck with me for now.

I got the full experience in the cave, TxGunDawg and I had a nice smooth system going. Was a great experience, that cave was a beast!

This is excellent news, so you're in for RO?

Mike is a badass.

If those interested in ROing could email me with their level of commitment, that would be awesome. May as well start a spreadsheet.

bruceperry@windstream.net

Name plus online name will make things simpler.

I can't promise any cool local discounts, but you will shoot for free.

I see a massive armored plate purchase in my future.

It's great news about another RnG.

Don't know if I can RO.

I've already made a commitment for the 17th and 18th of that month.

May be able to come and shoot.

I'll have to see what the boss says.

I'm off to Pecos.

Fixed that for you. Don't know if I can make that one - already making a long drive east in March....

I know y'all are fully capable, but if you need anything, just ask. VERY glad this fire is spreading!

I'll volunteer to help in any way I can. Just remember I am an old fat guy with no knees or lungs. I can work shooting stations, sign up, etc. Not going to shoot a run and gun since everybody else wants to leave at the end of the day. But I will be glad to help anywhere I can.

Wow, thanks Jeff, didn't expect that.


Tac, I really would prefer to only have ROs that are running the course, just seems a lot to ask you to come down just to run timers.

The good stuff is somewhat self-winding!

I do have at least one stage that will need 3 ROs. The others probably not.


In case I didn't make it clear ROs WILL SHOOT FOR FREE!

I believe that should read as 3-31-2018 as 3-31-2017 is long past. Still debating if I will do one or both dates this year.

Stimpy, I realize that you were wanting relatively young and still mobile RO's to keep up with all the high speed, low drag shooters that will come. But I always jump at the chance to see some long lost friends, make new ones, and see some fantastic shooting.

I won't mind running stats, timers, whatever. I figure that will allow somebody else to concentrate on their shooting. Besides it is only a short drive from here.

So my offer is still up on the table. Let me know if I CAN be of help instead of in the way.

Someone has to load all those blanks too!!

Have to make sure we have em in 308, 223, 7.62x39, and 300-B/O... or maybe limit the ammo to be carried to the calibers we have blanks for.

...Be funny (me thinks) to take all of a run-n-gunners mags and make him turn around while you violate one and then turn back around and hand em a stack to load back into their gear just before they depart for the pain! Thinking, what stage will I fall victim to the malfunction?, Will I get to that mag? Do I want to sacrifice my run time to try to find the culprit?... hehehehe

In that case you are on the list, is that a firm IN or 'tentative'?

And many thanks, as always!

The solution to this problem is to provide a 'range gun' on one of the stages.

The cruel idea I had that has since fled was to have the mystery gun be the 1919, but someone would hop up and down on it trying to load it and make me sad.

I promise not to make you (or your 1919) "sad" if you want to go there brother

I would LOVE to shoot the 1919, on any occasion!

I apologize but this match is only open to people with time machines. Carry on!

Stimpy, of course I am IN. Like I said, I'll be there to help and support the match. Just let me know if I need/should bring support equip like spotting scopes, timer, binocs, etc. I also have a side-by-side polaris, think high speed golf cart, I can bring to move things and people around without the hassle of a full sized vehicle.

And I will bring my full blown first aid kit. Note to self, better go get some mole skin for the competitors.

Shooter but if you need an RO I'd be willing to give it a go. I've never RO'd a run and gun but I've ran three of them and RO'd our club's monthly pistol match a few times.

Registration will open some time in early January.

I'll put your name on the list for potentials, but I am trying to use ROs I have worked with in the past.

So let's talk about stages!

Stage 1 (pistol/rifle) will be a miniature recreation of the infamous 'Blackhawk down' stage we ran at a FAL match years ago. Expect to be uncomfortably situated in an enclosed space and have to make 8 pistol shots (12-20feet) followed by 12 rifle shots at 50 yards. Practising kneeling and sitting positions would be a good idea.

Stage 2 (rifle) will be fired from the beautific 600 yard firing line on RBGCs amazing Highpower range. You'll need to make 3 hits on a full size torso target at 300 yards, then 3 more hits on a torso target at 400 yards, and finally a single hit on a torso target at 600 yards. This is also the highest point on the course...of course.

Stage 3 (rifle/pistol) "Charge!" will have 8 rifle shots on 8"wx14"t steel at 100 yards followed by 12 pistol hits on paper targets appearing as you move forward from the rifle position after clearing your rifle.

Stage 4 (pistol) "Going in blind" Will be 4 targets shot twice each to neutralize but watch out for the no shoots everywhere.

Stage 5 (rifle) "Body armor" is a rifle stage with 'options' at close range. You have 5 bad guys in armor, so single head shots or double-tapped A-zones to neutralize.

All total I get 25-30 rifle shots minimum

and

28 pistol shots minimum.

Let's hear about it!
