Our mission is to provide a safe, fun and challenging experience to competitive shooters of all ages and competency levels while integrating the use of popular tactical gear and readily available firearms.
This is a close-quarters battle (CQB) style shooting competition utilizing handguns, rifles, and shotguns. All engagements are presented at CQB distances. Rifle targets can be a mixture of steel and cardboard depending on distance. Pistol targets are static steel targets. Shotgun targets are steel knock-downs without springs. Pistol and rifle targets are of realistic size (~16” x 24”). Pistol and rifle targets are counted as hits or misses not scored. Shotgun targets must be knocked down. Misses may be made up and there is no penalty for extra rounds placed on targets.
This sport provides for a vast number of different firearm options to engage the courses of fire. A course of fire (stage) will present a shooting problem that might have several creative solutions that require the employment of handgun, rifle, and shotgun.
Categories are based around the gear and equipment selected, not weapons, competitor experience/shooting skill. This eliminates the need for “qualifier” stages and the possibility of “sand-bagging” for competitive advantage. This strategy was chosen under the philosophy that all competitors can, and should, hone their skills to be cleaner, faster, and more proficient combat shooters regardless of their skill level.
This is a close quarters style shooting sport. As such, it is not meant to be a foot race or acrobatics contest. Movement and shooting on the move are of tactical importance but in a close-quarters environment, 25-yard sprints are not common occurrences. Short distances between shooting positions and negotiating obstacles/barriers while working a shooting problem are the goals. Nothing is intended to be of an extreme nature.
