Awesome – I received an email from reader Troy about the now infamous Hot Coffee Battle of Beech Grove. It seems that he designed a stage for their local IDPA match based around the incident. For those not familiar, IDPA stages have a scenario that tells a short story about the defensive situation, followed by the actual stage instructions. Here’s the layout for the Hot Coffee Revenge stage.
Scenario: You are leaving work and heading to your car while drinking a cup of coffee. A mugger and his friends decide to pay you a visit.
Procedure: Start standing at Position A holding “coffee” in strong hand, gun loaded to division capacity and holstered. On start signal throw hot coffee at T1, then engage T1 and T2 with two rounds each while retreating to position B. Engage T3 and T4, Popper 1 and Popper 2 through window. Engage T5 from cover while moving to position C. Pick up phone and hold in weak hand while engaging Popper 3, then engage T6 once activated by Popper 3. Phone may be dropped after engaging Popper 3.
Looks like a pretty wicked stage, and I have to say that I’m my actual hot coffee incident didn’t involve this many attackers!
