I'm getting an extended mag release to see if that makes it a little easier.It's one of those things you just have to try. The SFx has three different lengths for the mag release, base extension, and a medium and large piece you add on. I'm using it with no extension added to the base. The extensions were biting into my support hand. You might have to slightly adjust your grip during the release. As you're inserting the new mag, just return to your normal shooting grip. With practice you wouldn't even know you're doing it.

Breaking the "180" leads to a DQ (disqualification). That's why they had it painted on the walls with the no-shoots. LT was fine shooting, but the reload was a little questionable and why the RO said watch your muzzle.
Also, how long was the entire process from registration to match end? Was that the only four minutes that you were shooting?
A five stage match will be 4-5 hours depending how many shooters you have. If you're having a really good day and the stages aren't too complicated, your actual time shooting a stage will easily be under 20 sec...so you don't spend much time shooting! Way more taping targets!!!
(Yes, I know that if I just went to a match to observe, all my questions would be answered...) YUP!!!!

I'll never get up there with the big boys but I love the shooting and the comradery at the matches. If you are thinking about competition shooting, DO IT! Most fun you can have with your clothes on.
The hired "video crew" hit the wrong button for stage four and missing the qualifier was not a biggie as it was uninspiring. Good help is hard to find during these stressful times.

Was that the only four minutes that you were shooting?There were 60 shooters in three squads so it takes quite a while. 09:00-13:30 for that day. My total time for 5 different runs was 111 seconds. There's a lot of pasting holes and painting steel involved. Then there's the breakdown of the stages....

We shot a steel match Sunday and the feels-like was 118 degrees. It took some of the fun out of it. It still beat the hell out of yard work.
