Two new guns made their debut at the match today. M.S. ran his new (and little!) Glock 48, and E.K. was running a rather unique Sudanese P226 chambered in 7.62x25mm Tokarev.

Thanks to everyone for their help with running the match. Things ran very smoothly because you kept busy either setting up, tearing down, patching and resetting. And this allowed us to finish up early in the afternoon. Thanks!

The next regular scheduled club match is set for Sunday, 29 September 2019.

Club match scores, 18 August

Leave a comment

Beauty day for shooting! Conditions were perfect for the club match held today, 18 August 2019.

The Zombie Apocalypse multi-gun shoot last weekend claimed quite a few victims, which understandably made it impossible for several members to attend this match. Still, sufficient numbers showed up to make it an enjoyable and challenging experience.

There were a total of six stages, including three standards and three scenario stages, as follows:

Stage 1 – Goodbye Old Friend (a 12 round standards stage, a version of the old IDPA classifier)

Stage 2 – Elevated Heart Rate (an 18 round standards stage)

Stage 3 – Dirty Clothes (a 17 round scenario stage)

Stage 4 – Traffic Accident (a 15 round scenario stage)

Stage 5 – In the Woods (an 18 round scenario stage)

Stage 6 – 7 Yard Standards (an 18 round standards stage)

The scores are posted below (with total penalties and points down in square brackets):

I believe this was the first club match where we have run a Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC) division competitor, and it certainly adds flavour to the match.

Thanks to the folks who were able to attend, and for helping set up and tear down the stages.

The next regular scheduled club match is set for Sunday, 8 September 2019.

Zombie Apocalypse VIII results

Leave a comment

The eighth annual IDPANL Zombie Apocalypse Multi-Gun Shoot was held on Saturday, 10 August 2019.

The weather was once again excellent – it was hot! – and a total of 28 shooters attended, including participants from other provincial gun clubs such as the Discovery Shooting Club in Elliston and the Northwest Arm Rod & Gun Club in Winterland. Many thanks to those guys for showing their repeated interest in our event!

There were four stages or courses of fire which included a variety of target types (paper, steel and frangible) and varying presentations (disappearing, pop-up, etc.) that were required to be engaged by a mix of firearms – including handgun, shotgun, and rifle.

The four stages, developed around a theme of popular zombie movies, were:

Stage 1 – The Winchester Plan (a 21 round shotgun and pistol stage)

Stage 2 – Don’t Be a Hero (an 18 round pistol stage)

Stage 3 – Beware of Bathrooms (an 18 round pistol stage)

Stage 4 – Corpus Separatum (a 51 round rifle, shotgun and pistol stage)

Full results follow (with points down and penalties in square brackets; lower is better):

In keeping with the spirit of IDPA, prizes were drawn on a random basis and awarded so that all participants had an equal chance of walking away with a prize. These prizes included complimentary one year memberships for the St. John’s Rod & Gun Club (SJRGC) and for IDPANL; raffle tickets for a Stag 10 rifle package, from the Labrador Trap & Skeet Club, and a large variety of small prizes. Congrats to the winners!

One year SJRGC memberships – J.R., M.S.

One year IDPANL memberships – Ja.W., J.L.

Stage 10 raffle tickets – Ja.W., D.T., G.C., J.A., J.B.

The match ran very well, thanks to the core group of volunteers who helped to set up on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, and more importantly, to act as staff for the event. Many thanks to all of the folks who played a role – no matter how small – in helping to make it a successful and enjoyable event, whether it was in preparing lunch, helping set up or tear down the stages, or just doing your part to patch targets and re-set steel and props.

A special thanks to the hard working safety officers and scorekeepers who went above and beyond – including having to run the entire course many times over – to ensure that those in attendance were able to complete it in an efficient, safe and enjoyable manner.

Thank you for attending and we hope you enjoyed it. We continue to have regularly scheduled IDPA matches and side events like this one throughout the year and we encourage potential new members to come out and try the sport.

Zombie Apocalypse VIII Multi-Gun Shoot, FAQ

Leave a comment

IDPANL ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE VIII MULTI-GUN SHOOT

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

Scheduled for Saturday, August 10, 2019 and organized by IDPANL, this is our eighth annual “multi-gun” shoot, where you will use close quarters battle (CQB) rifles, shotguns, handguns, and even “melee” weapons to engage “zombie” targets over a series of timed stages. Though this event has a competitive element, the emphasis is on having fun with firearms, so recreational and casual shooters will be the norm rather than the exception.

1. What is this event all about?

This is a “multi-gun” shoot, where you will use rifles, shotguns, handguns, and even “melee” weapons to engage “zombie” targets over a series of stages. Four stages are being planned this year, in ‘3 gun’ style. This means that you will use the three different types of firearms (and the melee weapons) over the course of the match, and sometimes all of them in a single stage. Participants will be organized into squads and then two classes: (1) Experienced and (2) Novice (primarily to differentiate between holster certified and non-holster certified shooters).

2. What firearms do I need to bring?

Handguns may be semi-automatic or revolver. Shotguns can be 12 or 20 gauge. The Close Quarters Battle (CQB) rifle will be used to engage targets at ranges between 20 and 100 yards. Calibers are restricted to centerfire only. Any “melee” weapons will be provided.

3. What if I don’t own one or more of these firearms?

Even if you don’t happen to own one or more of the firearms being used in this shoot, it should not keep you from participating. There will be participants at the shoot who will be more than happy to permit you to use their firearm(s), providing that you bring your own non-corrosive factory ammunition. 223/5.56×45 or 7.62×39 (preferably soft point) tends to be most popular among rifles, 12 gauge among shotguns, and 9x19mm among handguns.

4. What will I be shooting at?

We will be providing paper, frangible, and steel “zombie” targets. Some of these targets will be engaged while “on the move”.

5. How far will I be shooting?

Shotgun: Up to 25 yards.

CQB Rifle: Up to 100 yards.

Handgun: Up to 20 yards.

6. How much will I shoot?

There will be a total of four (4) stages. Estimated minimum ammo counts are currently 60 pistol, 20 shotgun, and 25 rifle. You should bring at least 1.5x this amount.

7. What if I don’t have a “holster course”?

Only participants trained in the safe use of a holstered handgun may participate in any handgun stage that requires the use of a holster or movement. Acceptable credentials are laid out in the match rules. Even if you do not have holster certification, however, the stages will be modified so that you can still participate.

8. Who will I be shooting with?

Participants will be organized into groups of around a half dozen shooters called ‘squads’. Each squad will be accompanied by a Safety Officer (SO) and a Scorekeeper. These will be experienced IDPA members, and your squad will have at least one other experienced IDPA member to help answer any questions that you may have. If you have a companion that you want to shoot alongside (or with whom you are sharing equipment), please tell us at the time of registration.

9. What else will I need?

You will need: appropriate ear and eye protection. Shooting bag, gear, and extra magazines. Water will be provided. A BBQ style lunch may be offered, in which case it will be provided at no additional cost. This will be confirmed prior to the event.

10. Are there prizes?

Just getting some useful experience in surviving a zombie apocalypse has got to be worth something. So, for the most part, and in accordance with the spirit of IDPA, this is about bragging rights only. Last man standing and all that. Prizes will be awarded by random draw, so every participant has an equal chance of walking away with something.

11. What is the timeline?

Check in at the club house is scheduled for 9 AM sharp. A safety briefing will follow, with first shot due to take place at 9:45 AM. Please be there on time and ready to go, because any delays will adversely affect everyone and this event typically takes a full day. Anyone showing up after first shot will not be able to participate in the match.

12. What if the weather is poor on the day of the match?

If there is seriously inclement weather on August 10, such as heavy rain, we will hold the match on the following day, that is, Sunday, August 11.

13. What is the cost, and how do I sign up?

The entry fee is $30.00 per person, payable by EMT or cash. As the shoot is limited to a total of about 30 participants, it will be by pre-registration. Priority will be given to IDPANL members firstly, and then to those who register and pay in advance. Any refunds will have the applicable EMT fees deducted, and there will be no refunds offered after August 2, unless the shoot does not go ahead. Send an e-mail to idpainnl@gmail.com to register, and you will receive further information (about the rules, making an EMT payment, etc.).
