Magpul Governor's Match FAQ - Scoring and Hits

Posted By: Zak Smith on March 28, 2017

Since the MGM has a bunch of new-to-action-shooting competitors, we’re going to flesh out some commonly asked questions and answers.

How does scoring work?

Each stage will be scored “time plus penalties”. Time plus penalties means you take your raw time, add the seconds prescribed by the briefing packet per penalty type for each penalty incurred to get your net stage time. The fastest net time per division gets 100 stage points, everyone else gets a fraction of that based on his time divided into their time.

What are penalties?

Penalties include: failure to neutralize (FTN), un-hit, no-shoot, and procedural. FTN’s are +5 seconds, the rest are all +20 seconds, each occurance.

What hits are required on a paper target to neutralize?

Unless otherwise briefed, paper targets will require 1 A zone, 2 C zone or better, or 4 D zone to neutralize.

What is the penalty for Failure to Engage (FTE) ?

There is no separate FTE penalty. An FTE’d target would fall under UNHIT.

 

NEW 2017 SAC VENUE! HALF-MILLION ACRES

Posted By: Zak Smith on February 24, 2017

The 2017 SNIPER ADVENTURE CHALLENGE will be held on private ranch lands totaling over 850 square miles, north of Medicine Bow and south of Casper, about 80 miles south-west of the ’16 site.

We are very excited for the opportunity to move the SAC to new venue! Although we loved running the SAC at our Douglas shooting site, we’ve “used it up” with regard to land nav problems. Dealing with the unknown is a key part of the concept of the SNIPER ADVENTURE CHALLENGE. This new site will give us practically limitless options for land-nav and also offers new sets of geographic features and microterrain to deal with. Up until this point, the largest SAC site was the Felix Canyon Ranch (2013). This new site encompasses almost four times more area.

A very limited amount of lodging will be available on-site through the Q-Creek lodge. Public camping is available on BLM nearby. Hotel lodging is available in Casper and Medicine Bow.

Additional details are posted on the SAC web site, 2017 SAC. Registration is open now.

 

RESURGENCE: 3-GUN REBOOTED

Posted By: Zak Smith on February 3, 2017

JP ENTERPRISES and COMPETITION DYNAMICS present RESURGENCE, a Tactical 3-Gun Match that captures the full spirit and flavor of the legendary SOF 3-Gun matches.

We’ve brought back the spirit of the original Outlaw 3-Gun with tactical, semi-surprise stages. Our ruleset has evolved for modern 3-Gun and tactical rifles, but a secondary rifle optic or 26-inch shotgun tube won’t give you a win at this match– it’s all about shooting fundamentals, situational awareness, and thinking on your feet.

This match is being brought to 3-Gunners, law enforcement, and military shooters by SOF 3-Gun veterans.

Join us in rekindling the spark of tactical 3-Gun.

2017 DATES Sept 21-24. Registration open now!
