Hi SeeEmPee,

Practice OFTEN shooting your match TIMED, be comfortable, don't rush yourself!
Have a few extra rounds handy if you have a bad primer!

Check & double check everything you need to take, including the CORRECT ammo, sun glasses, bug spray. mags or clips.
A hat to block the morning or afternoon sun. Mine was in the car!
That is Excuse # 56 out of 100!
"It would have been a perfect score, but the sun blinded me."... Not really, but it's good excuse

Enjoy,
broom

This in spades.

If your spirit animal is Scrooge McDuck like mine is, start with what you can cobble together but buy a stool as soon as the Black Ops Fund will allow. I swear my scores went up when I had my shtuff in one bag. Update to a used cart or conversion in a season or two.

Prep time is for NPA, not finding your pen.

Well said! When everyone is off of the firing line, the person calling the Match Will announce “relay one (for example) you may bring your gear to the firing line. Your prep time will begin in two minutes.”
That means you have two minutes to set up for that stage which will include getting your rifle out perhaps setting up your scope stand, or if applicable rolling out your mat. Your cart will have everything you need already there. You will likely be ready to dry fire is soon as they say “your Prep time begins...NOW,”

Another tip. Start getting ready while you are on the ready line. Load your magazines, set your scope stand up, put your jacket on.

Hi Fellows,

I just read some of the many helpful notes here -AGAIN! Try to watch one real match before you shoot to get the feel for the pace of it.

If your shooting in the morning relay. Carefully position your cart or wagon BETWEEN you & the BRIGHT SUN! So your head is in the shade. Have that wide brim hat with you! I was blinded by glare off my shooting glasses for the first string. I would guess the same trick will apply during the afternoon shoot also!

As I said before on this link. PRACTICE stages often & always time your shots. You will have mastered the allotted time for each stage with practice.
Do hit the practice range on crappy days & you will be a better shooter! Things never go according to plan so have a plan B or C!

Good Luck,
broom
