- PUMP OR SEMI-AUTOMATIC SHOTGUN: 12 or 20 ga., smoothbore
only, 28: barrel max., iron or optical sights.
- AMMUNITION: 35 rounds of buckshot, 15 slugs. Any 12 ga.
buckshot or slug load may be used (including "tactical" or
"reduced recoil" loads). For the budget-minded, #6 or larger
heavy birdshot loads (1 ¼ ounce, 3 ¼ dram equiv. minimum) may
be substituted for buckshot. If you shoot a 20 ga., you must
shoot full power buckshot loads and slugs. (Note: Ladies will
be accommodated in any/every way possible if they are
recoil-sensitive to heavy loads).
- ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT: A sling may be useful but is not
mandatory. You will need some type of ammunition carrier
capable of carrying at least 10 extra rounds of ammunition.
Disposable clothes and ankle supporting footwear are
- ALL ALGC TACTICAL RIFLE & SHOTGUN RULES APPLY. (see Tactical Rules)
Just released July 27 - HINTS!
This is a BYOB event! As usual, a commemorative
T-shirt will also be available.
- There will be weak-shoulder shooting (with buckshot).
Because of this, we strongly discourage the use of butt-cuff
shell holders. Shooting from the weak-shoulder is difficult
enough. It is even harder (and painful) if you have to do it
with your cheek up against a full butt-cuff. Our rules don't
prohibit these types of shell holders, so if you must use one,
you can. However, you will have to use it for all stages
(especially the weak-shoulder stage), and we will keep track of
- There will be some extremely challenging slug shooting. On
stage two, the hardest target will be a one gallon water jug at
around 50 yards. It must be perforated in order for a hit to be
scored. On stage three, you will be shooting at multiple moving
slug targets, with very little time to make up for missed
- You will start the swamp stage un-armed, without any
ammunition on your body. As such, it would be very helpful if
you have an ammuniton holder, belt or bandolier that can be
very quickly "worn", such as a shotshell belt or
bandolier. An across-the-chest bandolier will be made available
for those shooters who don't have one of these.
- The condition of the "ranges" is very weather
dependent. Be prepared for anything. The long range forecast is
calling for a lot of rain early in the week, with (relatively)
cool weather and no rain for Friday and Saturday.
Match fee (including lunch) is $25, plus $15 for each T-shirt.
If your entry form is not received by July 9th, you may
not receive a T-shirt!!!!!
