Interestingly Enough...

...I just ran the Scrambler carbine course at GUNSITE with a bolt gun with a scope and I ended up 10 seconds faster than I dud a couple of weeks ago with an AR carbine and a Trijicon "donut" site...hmmmmm...I'll have to think on this....

In any case, Marshal Halloway and I did a great piece (we think) with Dave Spaulding that we should have upon DRTV soon...a must see on mindset...

Sounds like you have programmed the course so you can optimize your run. I suspect you might run it faster with the AR now as well.

Good stuff either way. It's still the archer. :)

Never forget that the Scout Rifle concept originated with Col. Cooper! I doubt he would have been surprised by your times.

Gee, its like all history started in 1980. Waz up wid dat? Come on, really.

Has anyone heard of the Meuse-Argonne or Belleau Wood? Those doughboys and jarheads were running and gunning with....suprise...bolt guns.

i always run any course better the second time. It's called warming up... now if only my local idpa club would let me have a practice run first...

Now give it a try with a Marlin 336 30/30 and a Fastfire red dot. Oh wait, I just described the ultimate "back to the future" $500 assault rifle.

I HATE that course. Everything goes to hell every time I've run it.

It kind of makes sense, actually. The Scrambler isn't really a "run and gun" course in the sense that need fast follow up shots or multiple hits, but it emphasizes single, accurate shots on distant or partially occluded targets. A bolt gun with a good optic would probably be the best rifle for that.
