Viable Sweep?


McCandless

Recommended Posts

I'm just practicing this in the back yard, and wondered if this would be a viable shooting pattern for a match, or if it's too complicated.

My idea was to give me a bit of practice shooting near and far, and to make myself think a little. The purpose is not to slow shooters down.  I hate that concept.

 

                                                                                R/P2        R/P3        R/P4         R/P5

 

 

 

                                                                                                     

                                                                                                       R/P1 

 

                                                            

 

                                                                                                     Table

 

Sequence is:  with rifle -  R/P1 - R/P3 - R/P4 - R/P5,  R/P2 - R/P3 - R/P4, R/P2 - R/P3 - R/P 1.  Either direction.

Repeat with Pistol.

 

Thoughts?

Alot of our older folks at my club would not be able to remember the sequence.
I would not write this for our monthly shoot

 

I would write something different for this target array

Like shoot the front target, double-tap sweep the back 4 targets, shoot the front target again

Thanks, that's what I was looking for.  Some of the stuff I set up for myself isn't always match material.

 

Appreciate it

Am I missing a needed complexity?

10 shots, near and far

Seems the easy way to do this is.

..............R

P1, P2, P3, P4, P5

 

R, P1, R, P2, R, P3, R, P4, R, P5

Repeat with pistols

Instead of designating every shot, start with middle target (R/P1), then inside targets (3/4 or 4/3), then outside targets (2/5 or 5/2). Then inside targets (3/4 or 4/3), followed by outside targets (2/5 or 5/2) and ending with middle target (R/P1).

 

In other words; middle, inside, inside, outside, outside, then inside, inside, outside, outside, middle.

Dang Kit. I came up with that very sequence, probably at the same time you did. Cool! :D

By the way, I think your idea is absolutely AWESOME, stupendous, fantastic!. ;)

Or just load 9 in the rifle and end with a single tap to R/P1

Chief Rick:

     That would eliminate the hesitation and possible "P" when the shooter tries to determine if he is suppose to shoot one of the distant targets next.

     Thanks.

 

     Note: I'll compensate McCandless for the layout idea, you for the modification upgrade and an honorable mention to Pat for effort. :P:D

I will simplify it, we have some new shooters and I don't want to have them flummoxed....  Fairly easy to modify a number of ways.  Thanks.

Both rifle and pistol-2 rnds on each target.

Are the back targets, close enough for SG??

If so-1 rnd on each........

OLG

I left the shotgun targets out of the description just for simplicity, they'd be added in to the final draft.

I finished writing the match,  Simplifed.  Three stages only a little more complex, alternated with three nice and easy stages.  

 

Thanks

We shoot some variation of these reasonably regularly.  The 2nd one was featured at the CA State Match a few weeks ago.

I don't care for it.  This is supposed to be a shooting contest, not a memory test.

 

This is just one of my own backyard practice runs.  I see there's about a dozen ways to simplify it, if it were to make it to a match.

Yer, right.  I wouldn't want to make it into a memory test.

 

Thanks!

"P" trap.

 

The last thing I'd want to do is to make a scenario that would cause multiple Ps.  

Like I said, this is just my own backyard practice.  Looks like there may be a dozen

ways to simplify it for a match.

 

Appreciate the input!

Looks more like mental gymnastics rather than cowboy action!

Thanks!  I guess this made it out of the back yard it would probably just become a 4 target descending sweep.

1-2-3-4, 1,2,3  1-2, 1  or   P-1-2-3, P-1-2, P-1, P

My only criticism would be having the same targets for both rifle and pistol.  Makes the Rifle too close, or the pistol too far.

If it takes more than a few seconds to remember the sequence it's probably not a good sweep. I enjoy crossword puzzles but not when I'm shooting.

I don't really understand the need for folks to have a sweep named after themselves, they could just call it the "narcissistic" sweep. I feel many of these sweeps  are written by folks that were the last kids picked for the kick ball team when they were in elementary school. Keep it simple!;)

Agree.  This was just something I was kicking around with for myself in the backyard.  Like you said, keep it simple.  Not every bright idea in the backyard, translates well to a match.
