IMO, I would not mix round counts on one stage (i.e. position 1), keep the round count the same, but change position (stand, kneel, prone) and mag change at each position shift.

The key to stage design is to KISS.
Keep It Simple for the beginner, with enough to "stumble" for the expert.

No sidearm play? Could practice AR to sidearm transfer also. Maybe 1 mag of 10 rnds on stage one. 5 shots to first two targets and transfer to sidearm for last. Just an idea.

That's a shame. It sounds like a good event.

jjfuller1 06-27-2012 10:47 PM

Indeed. We shoot then cook. Have a fire and beer after dark. Maybe next year

Let me know a few months in advance. I might be able to get some guys up there. No promises though it's a long haul.
