The Tactical Games Texas

#1

Post by Paladin »

Got the chance to compete in the Tactical Games for the first time last weekend:

The Tactical Games Texas

As I'm not young anymore, competed in the 40+ group. Even that was tough. The heat Saturday reached an index of 104 deg and we were going full out including a 2.8 mile ruck. Here are the courses of fire:

Boulder Shoulders

Load Out: 4 x 10 Rifle, 4 x 10 Pistol

Firing Sequence: FS 1: Rifle and Pistol thru Square Port Port, FS 2: Rifle and Pistol thru Circle Port, FS 3: Rifle and Pistol thru Triangle, FS 4: Rifle and Pistol thru Rectangle Port

Stage Description:
On the call of go, athletes will pick up and shoulder the lightest sandbag and take it down the field to the drop zone. Athletes will set the bag down, pick it back up and shoulder it again to bring it back to the S/F box. Once the athlete and the sandbag are in the box, athletes will move forward and complete FS 1.
After FS 1 is complete, athletes will move to the middle weight bag, pick it up and shoulder it to carry it down the field to the drop zone. Athletes will drop the sandbag in the drop zone, and pick it back up to a shoulder carry before moving it back to the S/F box. Once the athlete and the sandbag are back in the box, the athlete will move forward and complete FS 2.
After FS 2 is complete, athletes will repeat with the medium weight bag. Shoulder it, carry it down the field to the drop zone. Drop it inside of the drop zone before shouldering it again to bring it back. Once back and fully inside of the S/F box, athletes will compete FS 3.
After FS 3 is complete, athletes will move to the heavy sandbag, pick it up and shoulder it to carry it down the field to the drop zone. Athletes will drop the sandbag in the drop zone, then pick it back up and carry it to the S/F box where they will complete FS 4.
After FS 4 is complete, athletes will make sure their weapons are cleared and the pistol is stowed before finishing in their S/F box. Time stops when the athlete crosses into the S/F box.

The Husafell "stone" was particularly nasty. You carry the 110lb weight (at least that's what they claim, I didn't get a look inside to see if there was extra) on your chest, which makes breathing particularly difficult.

Gonna need a few days to recover from this one, but it was certainly a challenge.

I read the whole thing. That was enough. Now my back and shoulders are sore. :lol:

I’m a little bit in awe. There’s no way I could do this thing. I simply don’t have the physical capacity for it any longer. And by the time I’ve lost enough weight to make it feasible, I’ll be 71 or 72, so…

A friend of mine has previously invited me to the Pawnee (OK) Run and Gun, which is just a multiple shooting stages sequence with either a 5K or 10K walk/run along the route, carrying a rifle, pistol, and a small ruck with water and ammo. The event is timed, and the rifle stages are mostly shot at longer distances than the event you’re describing…from about 50 to maybe 300 yards, with one unknown distance stage with the target which I recall at the time being around 350 yards or so. My friend said that he had to use the reticle in his scope to dope the range. (He’s a medically retired MARSOC scout/sniper. I’ve learned a lot from him.) It’s been a few years since I thought about this event, but I think I’d like to try it when I get my weight down to a more manageable level.

This is a picture of the husafell "stone" Image

Essentially you are carrying that on your chest with your gear about 100 yards, not being able to breath while it's against your chest. I lived, but it took every ounce of effort I had... then had to shoot tiny targets afterwards... its a level of physical stress before shooting I had not previously experienced. Murphy is in full force... under that kind of stress... things that had previously always gone right, all start to go wrong. Very eye opening!

I manipulate weapon safeties without thinking about it... but under that extreme stress... my ability to do weapon safety manipulation and even adjusting my EOTech settings was breaking down. The good news is that once you do this stress exposure training it starts to get easier. I noticed a substantial improvement on day 2.

Can't say I ranked well, but it was learning experience for sure. I had always guessed that SPECOPS fitness was well above my level... now I'm sure of it! I hope to incorporate some of the lessons learned into my gear and training.

This is the pistol portion of the "Long Movement Stage":



You can just make out 2 small steel plates about 40 yards from the firing line. Shooters alternated between the plates making an already impressively difficult task even more so. Honestly a stage for the racegun crowd as ~6inch plates make it a quite difficult. I was glad to get a couple hits out of 6 tries.

This was the "biathlon" shooting position:



The rifle steel was 50 yards away in front of the hay bales. Pistol targets were 10 yards out. Even after running 400m in my rifle plates I was pleased with my marksmanship on the stage, but timed out due some other factors.

That's pretty awesome. Thanks for sharing.
My PT would scowl grimly at my carrying such a heavy weight any distance with my bad neck. Did they have an "old and broken" division? :lol:

Seriously... looks like fun and plenty of learning. :thumbs2:

They have Masters 40+ and Master 50+ divisions... but not any that I would call broken. A number of "Masters" were obviously retired special ops guys and they were scoring well in both Masters and the overall category. Three of the top 11 overall were Masters.

They have pushed up the fitness intensity at Tactical Games in the last year or two. I do wish they went a bit easier on those of us who aren't getting any younger. I knew it was going to be tough, but I dramatically underestimated how tough... and I was running with the "old guys". The cadre were very supportive overall even to those of us struggling to keep up.
