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

Light Mount to Special EDCE

The year turns to time with less light which means some SRA competitions in the dark w/ weapon lights.

I have currently shot mostly with my custom 2011, Special EDCE, but my only pistol with a light mount is CZ Shadow.

As we all know, xx11 pistols have different grip angle than CZ, which is a problem as currently my wrists tend to turn to xx11 angle, so in the dark when you can’t properly see, the CZ points upwards if the wrists are not adjusted.

So set to enable mounting my pistol light (Nextorch WL10) to the Special EDCE. The options were to attach or machine some rail. We went with the latter.

Here are few pictures of the process:

Unfortunately the dust cover does not have very much structural strength so we had to make some compromises which makes this a custom fitting between the gun and the lamp in question. So the result is not an actual picatinny/weaver rail, only similar to.

Uudenmaan SRA Piirikarsinta II / 2016 (pictures)

Two Special Squadders and one prospect took part in Uudenmaa court SRA qualifications competition.

The weather was great for the date ( October 25th) and the stages were mostly pretty nice to shoot, with only few complaints: the plates on the plate-rack on stage1 were very heavy and it was not easy to tell a hit from 300m and 150m metal targets (stage4 and 5).

First we had to wait pretty long for the stage officials to finish their pre-match, but after that, the timetable held and we could quickly move to next stage after the previous one was shot.

After last stage we had some car problems but managed to get to awards ceremony  in time to collect the medals for 1st and 2nd in Open Division.

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.
