August ViMBAR Match

Great weather for this month’s match, with very light winds. Jim and Bill set up five stages, all ten rounds, starting with:

  • Stage One. From prone supported position, engage a single 250yd. target, while not hitting ‘Gary’, the hostage. Minus one point for killing ‘Gary’.
  • A complicated Stage Two. Basically a Nevada Sweep with targets at 100, 200 and 300yds, but punctuated with alternate shots at a 400yd. target. Two points for all 400yd. hits. Sitting supported.
  • Sitting unsupported on Stage Three, alternating targets at 150 and 225yds.
  • Stage Four started with six pistol rounds alternating between two 20yd. targets, and then from standing position, alternate targets at 200 and 150yds.
  • Stage Five, the tie breaker, started with the grenade pitch and then six pistol rounds alternating between two targets at 25yds. Alternate targets at 200 and 160yds. from sitting supported position, and then reload and repeat from prone unsupported.

Possible high score of 70.

June ViMBAR Match

It’s getting warmer out there, but Jim and Bill set up five quick stages, so we could beat the heat of the day. All stages were ten rounds and had a bonus point for a first shot rifle hit.

  • The dreaded ‘Gary’ on Stage One. Ninety seconds to engage the target from prone supported position.
  • Targets at 400, 300 and 200yds. on Stage Two. Engage twice and move. And back again. From sitting supported position. No sight adjustment after the first shot.
  • Sitting unsupported on Stage Three, engaging targets at 225, 175 and 200yds. with a Nevada Sweep.
  • Stage Four started with six pistol rounds at a large 35yd. target. Then from standing position, alternate targets at 215 and 175yds.
  • The tie breaker, Stage Five, started with the grenade pitch and then six pistol rounds at a medium target. Alternate targets at 220 and 160yds from standing position and then repeat from any unsupported position.

Possible high score of 70.
