No, they would only last a couple of runs. I'm going to compact the length of the course so we don't have as far to go between where the rifle starts and ends. The shotgun portion will be after the rifle portion. I'm going to use the Texas Star for the shotgun and use three silhouettes to replace it for the handgun portion.

Only a few days later and already can't wait for the next one. The Big Piney matches are some of the best I have been to. The stage design is really well thought out and each one tests different skills.

It was great to hang out with you guys and meet some new faces. Hopefully I can find a clown car of people to bring next time.

You kind of did this time!

It was great to have you back at the event, dude. Bring more dudes like Andy. Really stoked that you enjoyed the matches too.

I am trying to get a video for last weekend up asap, then we'll start planning for the next one.....I cant wait either!

I'll hook him up at the next match he comes to. I'll let him cheat on his AK with one of my ARs.

That's not going to satisfy his unnatural urges.
He likes it rough.
He likes an element of danger.
He dislikes safe words.

The hostage escape course was originally supposed to be done wearing a pleather mask with zippers for eyes, no mouth or nose holes, and both hands cuffed behind the back, with no key, only a small cable saw.
We were all cool with that, but when he brought up the dildo's....we decided an intervention was required.

For those of you that might be interested, we will be having registered steel challenge matches later on this year. This month we purchased 40 steel targets, stands and hanger caps (enough to set up all eight stages). We are going to dig out a bay to the left of the one we have the shoothouse in and a large bay that will stretch from the 3-gun valley to the road (in front of the barn) that goes up the hill. You can shoot semi-auto handgun, revolver and pistol caliber carbine (centerfire or rimfire), with or without optics.

You do not have to be a member of the Steel Challenge Association to shoot in these matches. Round count is 25 rounds per stage if you shoot it clean. Cost will most likely be the same as our other matches; $20.00 the first round, $5.00 for each additional round. You can shoot different firearms each round if you want to.

We will update our schedule on our web site as soon as we have firm dates. These matches will be on the Saturday of the second weekend of the month. We haven't decided if they will be held every month or every other month. Our 3-gun matches will be switched to the first Saturday of the month.

All kidding aside...those of you who havent been to Big Piney, it is a great club with good facilities and lots of ranges.
One of the things I like most about it is that is in fact a club vs just a range.
A range is where you go to shoot.
A club is where you can hang out and have a great time with friends and be part of a community.

Big Piney is definitely a club worth belonging to.

It is ALL THAT!

If only it was about 400 miles closer.

If it was, Longshot and I would be there every week. BP is the club of all the ones I have been a part of over the years that I want to go shoot at. Up here I travel 100+ miles to shoot with friends at a sand pit vs 5 miles to shoot with strangers at a range.

The one event (Protect the Embassy) I recorded. The optic is the Vortex 1x AR prism sight.
Thank you for posting the video! Trying to explain it to people, they think I'm crazy. Showing them the video, looks like fun.

I do the same thing. I show them the videos of our handgun and 3-gun matches on the club's Facebook page rather than try to explain them.

I think your AR may be defective (not surprising cuz its an AR ) I heard a couple shots that didnt have a ping from steel afterwards and I know well enough that you dont miss, therefore AR must be defective. Treat yourself to am AK good man

I missed once with the handgun and twice with the rifle. Had to shoot extra to make up for it. In our 3-gun, you can load and carry as much ammo as you want. The Magpul drum magazine is pretty popular. I sold both my AKs and three M1As a couple of years ago. I also shoot a S&W rimfire AR, but the cold plays havoc with ammo ignition reliability. The battery in my handgun red dot was dying, it was faint and hard to see sometimes. In the video you can see the small frozen creek in the middle of the valley. Last Wednesday, there was a river of water running down the middle.

My ARs were upset by your AK comment and thought I might be leaving them for an AK. I said no, I like my rifles long and lean. AKs are kind of short and chunky .

Theres definitely a little bit of ice right where you needed to move at, definitely throws a new factor into movin. You can have your cake and eat it too, your AR's wont mind if ya had a little thicker rifle on the side

I know the rest of you guys were spooning on the ground to stay warm that night

Looked really fun though.
