V-S Suomen Talvi SRA 2017

We shot the years first reservist 3gun (SRA) match in Huovinrinne shooting range.

The stages were good with enough challenge and variance.
My biggest failure was not to check the barrel line in small hole, which cost 2 misses and I also shot 1 N/S on my side, but still managed to get second in overall!
( overall  and stage results)

Also I should learn how to shoot pistol, as in stage 1, I shot one unnecessary extra shot to the “close range” target:

You saw right, the target in previous picture is huge!
Due to range restrictions, the targets could be set only to the back berm. This effectively prevents building a stage with close range and long range targets, but luckily the organizer had circumvented this, by applying greatly enlarged targets next to normal size targets ūüėÄ

long and close range targets @150m on stage3
another “close range” target

There was also a very nice swinger

Vares Cup SRA III / 2015

Third component match of Vares Cup 2015.

Everything did not go so well, but fortunately the long rifle stages were successful and gave enough points to compensate for the malfunctioning shotgun and the lack of pistol skills.

Pikijärventie SRA 2015 (gallery included)

Special Squad took part in Pikij√§rventie 2015 which was an SRA competition with 7 stages. The stages were well built and adequately challenging without being too complicated or memory games. The theme was “Operation Overlord” (Allied code name for Battle of Normandy). Stage descriptions in Finnish, with pictures

Stage 1 was a “sniper stage” with targets from 200 to 500m and allowed to be shot with a larger caliber rifle including a proper scope. The used targets were Jasters, a type of electronically functioning (reset, set up/down) large metal sheets. The organizer provided a .308 AR with a Leica scope, free of charge. Only one of us was able to shoot all 6 of the targets (200, 300, 2×385 and 2x500m) with the help of his own and familiar AR-10..

Stage 2 had a tank prop and it was nice and fast shooting with some close-up papers and 6 Jasters in a little distance. Stage 3 was a pistol stage with some paper targets and four poppers that were required to be shot strong hand only. Stage 4 had a very slow sledge that was activated from front of the stage, by the sandbags.

Stage 5 was nice variation from most of the stages we have shot. It simulated being stuck in a tree with a parachute! On stage 6 there was a Sig made AR-15, provided by organizer and readily set up with four rounds in the mag. In start you had to rack, shoot two papers, make safe and leave the rifle, continuing with pistol. Stage 7 was sort of a run and gun with shotgun, requiring minimal 16 shots.

We had two team entries, one for open (avoin) and one for standard (vakio). In combined results the open team won and standard team came second. Individually we won the lady category, had second on standard division and third on open.
