    I wonder if your current crop of zombie hunters would consider that a good thing or a bad thing?

    We are about good safe competitive fun, and try to leave politics out of it. Plenty of other parts of the forum to talk about the current leadership, or lack thereof, so at ZSA matches we just try to have fun while being safe and meeting new friends.

    I would love to shoot one of those bleeding zombie targets during a match. It would be awesome!

    Thinking about trying this for the first time....

    I was considering using my bone stock glock 17.... Are most folks using open eights for these or optics?

    Bring what you have, I suggest 4 mags though. And yes, most use iron sights for ZSA matches.

    Took a friend shooting there today, didn't sweat a drop and had light on my Target at all distances. Wish I didn't have to work this weekend. Need a motivation boost after last weekend. John, you guessed right about why I'm shooting low. U the man!

    Hmfp... 4 mags? Damn- that's a lot of rounds for a stage (17*4). I have plenty o mags, but I don't have carriers for for 4 at a time... Guess I'd need another double mag holder...

    Btw- waiting to find a glock34 4th gen - no one seems to have them.. I suspect that will make a decent zombie gun once I find one.

    There will not be a stage that needs more than what your Glock will hold with 2 mags, but mant shooters like to reload between target arrays, hence the advice for extra mags. If you need some, I'm sure there will be some for you to borrow at the match. we all help each other out, that is part of what we do.

    I'm only half way done with the lighting, only 24 hours in the day, and I used 24 1/2 of them to get all those up. More will be added soon. The goal is perfect lighting at all distances for the shooters, and a few more fans are going in to create a nice cooling breeze on these 100 degree days !!!

    Ah- perfect. I think i have a dozen g17 mags- I was worried because I misunderstood that you need 4 on your person for a stage!

    The competitive stuff is new to me.... Just started shooting the Ruger matches- and had a blast. Your Zombie events look like another "soft entry" into more competitive shooting.... Plus a helluva lotta fun.... Something to hold me over till the next season of Walking Dead returns :)

    So, for minimal beginner gear;
    Idpa-type holster
    Double mag carrier
    Combat pistol

    ? That it?

    I had a blast at my first ZSA event last night John. I really enjoyed the fact that there was no one standing behind the shooters talking crap and analyzing every little move and mistake made. Great fun and good people.

    Missed last night, but totally planning on coming ASAP. Got me a decent high cap pistol I can run it with, now just to work on getting a shotgun/rifle so I can do the three gun.

    I'm planning on hitting a 3 gun match once my shoulder gets better. Wife has nixed any activity with a 12 gage until then though.

    Due to the storm on it's way, the regular ZSA 3 gun match for this Saturday at The Range in Oxford, has been moved to Sunday the 28th. We will start shooting at 11:00 AM instead of 10:00 AM as it's on a Sunday, please pass the word, thanks, John

    I heard there is a growing number of zombie sightings and attacks in the Burlington area. I'll start loading now.

    3-gun gear question:

    Shotgun:
    Are these COF saiga-friendly? Or more accurately, are they not overly anti-saiga? :)
    Reason I ask is I've seen some shotgun competitions that went out of their way to sabotage folks using those evil, ugly saiga shotguns...

    I'm good on rifle and pistol, but the only shotguns I have are a saiga, a savage24 (20ga/.22lr) and a mossy500.... Just trying to figure out what will work.

    I keep all shotgun parts of the match between 6-12 rounds of shotgun. All birdshot to knock down plates at 10-15 yards. Less than 50 rounds of shotgun for the match, this keeps it cheap enough to get by with 2 boxes of Wally World shells. Folks have used EVERY type of shotgun so far, this is what keeps it fun, compete heavy if you want with the SAIGA or grab a side by side and have fun, all I ask is that you are safe. Hope that helps, John
