One of squad 5 goes home on Stage 4

This was my second last stage of the championship and it followed a rather fast (for me) skills stage and chronograph. Not too difficult, but shot at the end of two long days in the African sun.

Holding the spanner at P1 should not be an issue.

You start of kneeling at the front tyre with a wheel spanner. Draw and engage targets from cover. Target 6 is visible through the car. The second shooter on our squad has his leg out his strong side, sweeps himself on the draw and his two days end right there.

Shooting CDP, I only have nine to start with and T4 is a swinger. So I shoot T1, T2, T6 and T5 (three in this one) before reloading and shooting the popper at T3 to start the bobbing T4, which disappears. The plan works.

Time: 18.94 seconds, including four points down.

The disqualification of shooter two is unfortunate, as he was shooting really well until that stage and must have been in with a chance for a medal. Not to be and I’m sure he’ll be back stronger next year.
