September 29th 2013 La Garita Pistol Club Gathering

This was a laid back Sunday with only three of us.  And we had fun.

Sometimes after weeks of being shot at, we allow a target to stand down and just watch

We had the range to ourselves that day.  With Enrique’s permission, we used two ranges and set up targets in different places for each shooter.  The idea was to surprise the shooter with new positions.  We measured hits, but there were no limits on rounds fired.  Reload when necessary, tactical reloads impressed the judges (both of us).

Shooter #2 has just drawn his weapon and begun engaging targets.

We didn’t measure time except if a person was too slow to react or showed himself to hostile fire longer than necessary.  Then we might call him a great shooter, but a dead great shooter.  It was all subjective and each of us pretended there was really a  bad guy out there.  The use of cover, flanking movements, anything was fair game as long as our guns were always pointed downrange.  Shooters were required to holster their weapons between ranges.

Throughout the exercise, shooters were expected to keep checking behind them, above the ridges of the berms and not fix on their  targets.  It brought back the days of cowboys and Indians we used to play as kids.

Shooter # 1 has been working on his game for some time and it showed.

That’s it, not too many pictures but we shot a lot and sheared ideas.  That’s what friends do.  Come join us Sunday, the 27th.  See you there!
