a hard team match
US Optics came to us with a request: set up a challenging rifle match that
combines the funnest stage concepts we've all shot with the unique Competition Dynamics match flavor.
We've put together a match that combines hike-and-shoot field shooting
with precision rifle and semi-automatic carbine; timed "3-Gun style"
shooting with rifle, carbine, and pistols; and features some US Optics stage guns.
Two-man teams will be required to navigate rugged desert / mountainous terrain, recognize, locate, range, and engage challenging rifle targets from compromised shooting positions, communicate with their partner and the range officer (RO), and do it under time constraints.

The match is held at our Douglas shooting facility. This is a private ranch, so please follow directions, take care of the property, and be respectful so we can continue to shoot here.
To get to the parking area for this match, plug the “virtual address” 440 Wagon Hound Rd. (Douglas) into Google Maps. On Google Maps, this is coincident with a minor intersection with a short drive south down into a pasture area. Park here. This will be the check-in and demo area.

We are pleased to announce that La Sportiva is the OFFICIAL FOOTWEAR Sponsor of the 2016 COMPETITION DYNAMICS season!
La Sportiva, with US operations based in Boulder, Colorado, is a global manufacturer of premier outdoor gear and is best known for their world-class mountaineering, hiking, and trail-running footwear. Their Nepal EVO boot is probably the most-recognized modern mountaineering boot in the world and you’d be hard pressed to find a Crossfit Gym around the country in which there aren’t a few people wearing their Crosslites.
Speaking personally, I have been spending my own money on La Sportiva mountaineering boots and trail-running shoes since the late 2000’s. They are simply my “go-to” footwear for active endeavors.
La Sportiva will be sponsoring our prize tables throughout the 2016 season as well as offering a very special discount package for 2016 COMPETITION DYNAMICS Range Officers.
Check-in will be at 440 Wagon Hound Rd.
