I have massed foot mobiles, closing at a slow rate of speed, the coordinates are 39° 44′ N 86° 17′ W – fire for effect.
Every time I see one of those “zombie” targets, I get the crazy idea in my head to try and put together a “zombie action shooting” match – using standard IDPA targets, you’d take head shots for the entire match, except for the very first stage. The “scenarios” would play like this:
- You get confronted by some badguys, which you engage with two shots to the chest in tactical priority – but then you have to go back and re-engage each one with a head shot, because the two COM shots failed to produce a stop.
- All stages after that require a head shot for the target to be considered “neutralized”, failure to engage every target to the head will result in a failure to neutralize penalty.
It would be silly, challenging, and a lot of fun. Costuming would be encouraged.
I thought you were against LARP? :-),
I designed a stage like that last year for a club match. 20 or so targets in a zombie cluster, only head shots counted.
It was awesome.
A most amusing idea Ahab. If you organize it, they will come.
When these targets appeared on the wall at my shootery, I thought exactly the same thing.
I’m on pretty good terms with the RSO’s and the IDPA coordinator at the range; I think I’ll suggest your rules for the Halloween match.
I would staple plastic bags full of salsa behind the A Zone of the target, but that’s just me. :>
Ask, and ye shall receive…
Panther Arms is doing the 2nd Annual Zombie Shoot on 4/25. I *believe* it’s a 3-gun match, although it may be AR-only. (seeing as DPMS is sponsoring…)
ZerCool, you beat me to the Outbreak omega link. It’s mostly a rifle shoot, there is one pistol stage and I think there might be a shotgun stage, there is a bonus axe throwing side match .
We did this for our Halloween shoot!
We shot in semi-darkness, which was sobbering. Night sites help A LOT and I now have ’em on every gun!
We set a one minute time limit – shoot 20 targets, headshots only in a minute… Scored as steel (hit or a miss, no second guessing…)
Scoring was tough too in the dark.
