Thanks for the explanation. I was trying to get a feel on how this will go down as I have never attended one of your events.
The “shotgun side-match” is what the club I shoot with calls practical shooting with a shotgun. We set up a standard pistol type COF using steel instead of paper targets. Then with a shotgun we naturalize steel targets / poppers. I guess they call it a side match because it uasually follows the day's IDPA shoot. So it's an extra (uasually one COF ran twice for best time)event to the IDPA shoot.
I am a safe shooter. The “safety officer” comment was to determine if this will be a “competition” shoot or just messing around with guns. Either way, I’m in.
G19, G38 & assorted inferior weapons of various calibers.
