Rapid Defense sponsored The Practice Project's "Spring Into Action" event on April 16th. Thirty shooters participated in 6 stages (plus a bonus!) that featured both pistol and carbine work.
TPP stages are known for their practical defensive shooting focus, so one can expect they will put their equipment to the test. A good mix of positional shooting, physical movement, and problem solving are required along with proper marksmanship fundamentals.
This event featured a wide variety of stages. Of note were a "blind" stage that forced shooters to find the correct targets from a variety of positions, a vehicle assault where shooters had to exit their vehicle and engage targets at various distances, and even a bonus stage that required shooters to neutralize one target while a second one moved towards them and finish that one off after a reload.
RD sponsored the Hammer Time stage, which required shooters to carry weight, swing a sledge, and place accurate shots with both hands using both a pistol and rifle. Congrats to the top two shooters on this stage who both took home a t-shirt.
RD also gave away two training classes in a drawing of each participant. Congrats to those winners a well.
