Team Red Flag decided to go crazy this Winter season and basically enter everything we possibly could.
As well as the mainstream Mini Rifle (MR) and Long Barrelled Pistol (LBP), we also dug into the back of our safes and blew the dust off the Underlever (UL) and Long Barrelled Revolver (LBR).
Excellent outcome with two team golds, one silver and a bronze, (which looks kind of gold if you squint hard enough), and additional individual medals – totalling 9 in all!
Team Red Flag Team Results:
LBP Standard = Gold
LBR Standard = Gold
MR Open = Silver
Underlever Open = Bronze
We are very proud to retain for the second year our GOLD position for LBP STD discipline.
We were further recognised in this pistol discipline by securing a ‘clean sweep’ as individuals, taking 1st, 2nd and 3rd place respectively with our .22 1911’s from GSG.
Combined LBF (Long Barrelled Firearms) recognises all consolidated disciplines and classes shooting this particular competition, and Team Red Flag secured an overall SILVER for this team event.
We also secured additional medals as individuals, securing SILVER in MR OPEN, and BRONZE in LBR STD.
It was a lot of hard work, with lots of practise and investing ‘divorce levels’ of cash on ammo to maintain the required standard.
It was a grind towards the end, just getting all the stages completed on schedule, but well worthwhile in the results.
Our thanks to our sponsors, without whom this would not be possible.
Thanks to Czech Tactical Pursuits, who really sharpened up our pistol drills last summer in preparation for the Winter League Competition – David and Craig really pushed us hard, and it paid off. If you are looking for a ‘shooters’ shooting experience, leaning heavily on practical and tactical, these are the guys.
Thanks to Field and Falcon for managing to keep up with our ammo demand, and the great support Sarah and Sally extend to the team.
As a footnote – we also entered the shotgun stages in both Birdshot and Slug – but I’m not talking about those – as we had our butts handed to us on a plate.
Anyone want to buy a S1 shotgun?
