I liked the video, but what happened to starting from the “low ready” position. Maybe it was the way the camera was positioned....

Thank you! I admit I did not employ the "classic" low-ready position. That said, whenever I've actually operated with a tactical carbine, I carry it in a similar manner to the way I shot the '03. Which is to say it is just below my line of sight. If I need to fire, it is very fast to slightly raise the weapon and acquire the target. I'll call it "tactical low ready" (Because, of course putting the word "tactical" in front of anything automatically provides justification regardless of how silly the subject might be!). In any case, I actually did raise the rifle to my line of sight for each stage, if only slightly. So I felt as though I met the requirements of the course.

Thanks again!
Howard

Fun idea, thanks for sharing.

To demonstrate the speed difference, would be cool to see stage spliced together from the buzzer to the last shot, with you using your patrol rifle as the base line.

That's an interesting thought. The next time I make one of these I might try that!

Hi Sir,

I enjoyed it too! The KISS principle still works well, in real life!

I passed your video on to a few of my shooting pals!

Thanks,

As HRF states, the course of fire is not his design, it is an official OPOTA qualification course.

But seriously Ohio, can we have something just a little more demanding?

If you ran it as one continuous stage starting 150 feet closing in to the 15 foot target, and didn’t add any extra time allowance for movement, that might be a good course of fire. Start with no mag in gun, and 10 rounds per magazine so you have 2 mag changes in the drill.

That would be 20 shots in 48.5 seconds if you just add up the time allotments. I’ll be nice and round up to 50 seconds.

Hi Sir,

Your comment is well taken
...BUT....
The rifle used in the video is a five shot bolt action, originally designed in 1903! It does not have a magazine !

It is loaded with a five shot stripper clip from the top of the action. The stripper clip locates in a machined cutout that allows for a comparatively quick reload.

Have a GREAT new year,
broom
