    Gauge of interest from the community for Tactical Shooting comps

    Hi there fellow shooters

    I am looking interest in doing competition shooting involving the use of semi automatic rifles in combination with pistols in an active shooter competition setting. Basically it will be similar to IPSC where the shooter will be moving point to point engaging targets under stress.

    I am currently pitching this with my club (as I would like to run a monthly comp and have had a dozen or so guys express interest) so will know at our next committee meeting (pretty sure it will get the full sign off), What I am hoping to achieve is being able to open this up to all shooters from around the country to come and attend as they can fit it in. Ultimately I want to see tactical style shooting become a fully fledged and active sport, so if your interested please let me know.

    Here is a small taste from my proposal document. I am calling this RAPSC (Rifle and Pistol Shooting Comp) pronounced "RAP SIC". I have deliberately removed the word Tactical from the document so as not to raise any undue criticism or negative response.

    RAPSC Shooting Information
    RAPSC is a combination of Semi Automatic and Pistol shooting designed to give the shooter a more active competition to test their full range of skills. Participants will be required to shoot from a number of different shooting positions, with their rifle and pistol from (but not limited to):
    Standing
    Moving Advance
    Kneeling
    Crouching
    Prone or Urban prone
    Left and right target acquisition on the move
    Static targets
    Active targets
    Participants will be required to show a high level of discipline and weapons handling to be able to complete all stages in the allotted time. This will involve a number of magazine changes during a stage which could mean using precious time.
    Above all RAPSC is for participants to be active and enjoy their shooting and although we are all highly competitive it is still social in nature.

    If your interested please let me know as I would like to hear from other like minded shooters

    Cheers
    T

    It's not really my scene, but I think any form of shooting involving pistols its going to be hard to get a mainstream following as I don't think its worth the hassle of owning them for most people.

    Thanks LR, not all event's will involve pistols as we currently going through our B endorsement at the moment. At the club i belong to most have pistol but theres a small percentage that dont (like me at the moment)

    Am happy to do it with just the Rifles as well

    I would compete in this. Don't have a B cat but have suitable rifles. Me and some mates actually do something similar, but we just call it run n gun. You pretty much need a Tac vest, dump pouch and a bunch of different mags to shoot it. We also incorporate rimfires and shot guns. I'm down, as long as there aren't any silly dress codes to keep the PC brigade happy.

    I would be keen but I'm a fair distance from Wellington. There would be no problem with shooters borrowing a pistol on the day. Presuming it was run at a pistol club range.

    Hard part is finding a suitable range.

    Sounds interesting for sure.
    If you don't get Dirt, Blood or Grease under your nails it ain't a hobby

    Hey Beavis, no there will not be any silly dress codes, tac vests etc are all ok with me. The only exception to that is No military fatigues everything else is fair game


    @@ Spanners - hahah technically yes or one gun if you dont have or use a pistol

    @@ Gimp - Range is not an issue, the club I belong too are quite forward thinking chappies. I am finishing off my proposal to the club to present at our next club meeting

    It's just IPSC rifle, right? That's already a thing.

    It sounds a lot like Service Rifle competition.
