CMP 22 Distinguished Badge

Post by gitkrunk on 1/4/2015, 10:35 pm

Since no one knows what is allowed.... any ideas on what they will or will not allow?  I am guessing all the euro 22lrs will be out because of the ergo grips.

I'm GUESSING that's wrong since they are doing the "low ready" thing to make it more consistent with what the juniors are shooting in international, I'm guessing they are going to make it legal for those guns to be used.

We won't know until the rules come out.

The rules are supposed to be along the lines of the .22 games match as far as legal pistols go.

I wouldn't be surprised if they limited the grips to production and limited sight radius. Probably pretty close in line with Standard Pistol but more restrictive on grips. I spent some time today before reading this post looking for my old M41 grips.

Toooooo late. You regretted it before it was out of your hand. Crying or Very sad

I always have an extra somewhere Chris. I will try to find one with a bent barrel for you if you want to come shoot Bremerton again.

Low ready or not, I am looking forward to chasing another badge.  I took the scope mount off my backup Hammerli last night.

Should be fun!  The old Dawgs will scramble to get the low numbers...   The iron sights will hold some of them back.

This could be fun.  I can slide the scope mount off the Hammerli and replace it with a weight very easily or just use the Marvel with an open sight rib.

Can someone fill me in on the specifics of the "low-ready"?  For instance, when would a competitor need to slightly raise the gun off the bench; i.e. "ready on the firing line"?

If there is a bench that prevents holding the pistol at a 45 degree angle, it would need to be held down so that it does not touch the bench. 

Watch this for a possibly better idea.

The pistol can never actually rest on the bench. I sometimes tap the bench so I know I am down low enough but the pistol never actually rests on the bench after the command load. Another biggy is you can not raise the pistol until the target turns. Not even a little bit.

I've never shot from a low-ready position.  There are many others as well.  CMP will have to clearly define how this works, and what the results of violation would be; i.e. alibi, DQ, no-score, etc.  My day-job involves executing to a specific Statement Of Work with customers, so I have to develop contracts that are clear and specific.  The following statements, from the new CMP rules, need a lot of clarity:

"In .22 Rimfire matches, the ready position for timed and rapid-fire stages is with the loaded pistol pointed down at a 45-degree angle. If the bench in front of the shooter is too high to allow a 45-degree angle ready position, the ready position is with the loaded pistol lowered as far as possible without contacting the bench (must not rest on the bench)."

Two points need clarification:  1) when does the shooter need to go to "low-ready", or raise the gun slightly from the bench, and 2) when can the shooter raise the gun to fire.

I believe that "2)" is straightforward in that it will be when the target "starts to turn".  The question remains in what the penalty is for raising early.

For "1)", there are a series of six commands that could apply:
- with 5 rounds, load
- is the line ready
- the line is ready
- ready on the right
- ready on the left
- ready on the firing line

I would think for consistency, this would need to match up with international games.  But, I've never been to any international match, so I'm not sure how this would work.  The YouTube video link above showed just one shooter at a time.  Obviously, quite different than Distinguished Match shooting.

Once you load, you cannot rest the pistol on the bench. I have been playing around with shooting the 22 this way for a couple of months. You could look up the standard pistol rules which is what I believe that Lenny was referring to above. 

But, there is plenty of time to work all of this out. The very first match won't occur until the Oklahoma games in April. I imagine that the commands will be well documented by then.

also the low ready is not something new. look at the rules for the CMP games pistol matches.. ie as issue, military.   we fired this way for those matches.    And being that it is a 22 we all should be able to raise the firearm after targets turn... acquire and squeeze off 5.

This is more a fundamental thing then a rule thing but.. Referring to Gitrunks comment about raising your arm and Acquiring the target. From the ready position it is all about how smoothly you can bring up your arm and not  about how quickly you can bring it up. Like He says or implies you do have enough time to not rush the shot.

The low ready rule is one of those rules that give people that are vertically challenged several advantages. Those of us so challenged have shorter arms and therefore have less movement to bring the pistol up into position. Should we be lucky enough to shoot at a venue that has a tall shooting bench we really make out. I shot a league match today that had a very tall bench. I only had to raise my arm about 12" from resting on the bench to being lined with the target. Just something to think about.....
