Lots of Fun at the Shooting Range on a Brisk November Day
Last weekend we went to an all-day (well at least until the sun set at 4:30 PM here in MA) outdoor tactical Shotgun and Carbine Shooting workshop. As with most of you that shoot, the majority of target shooting involves standing in a stationary position and shooting at a single stationary target. Since the Spring a group of us have been meeting once a week to shoot pistol “courses of fire” that involve drawing, moving, reloading and shooting at multiple targets from a variety of ranges from point blank to 25 yards away.
Since these outings have been great for learning and improving our skills (as well as a lot of fun), we decided to have a go at the same type of activities with our shotguns and carbines. For the day everyone brought a shotgun (pump or semi-auto), a carbine (AR-15, AK, 9mm) and their sidearm (Shield, 1911, Sig, Glock, etc.) and plenty of ammo.
We then setup a variety of courses that required people to move, reload, change firearms and shoot. Needless to say it was both challenging and considerably more interesting than stationary shooting. Here are some photos from the day (note the weak Fall sunlight and long shadows):
