Nice idea...especially to raise money

Nice idea...especially to raise money

At next weekend’s Rangemaster Tactical Conference in Tulsa, Oklahoma, pistol-training.com will be partnering with Rangemaster and host U.S. Shooting Academy to put on a side match that will raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, one of the nation’s leading centers in the fight against childhood cancer.

The match will cost $5 per entry and will give the competitor three chances to shoot the F.A.S.T. drill. Of course, it’s not just the F.A.S.T. drill…

There will be three targets set up for the F.A.S.T., each with an eight inch circle and a 3×5 card. The 3×5 card on all three targets will be surrounded by twenty dollar bills. Each $20 bill that gets shot will cost the competitor $20. All money raised (both the entry fees and the $20’s) will be donated to St. Jude in the name of the competitor with the best F.A.S.T. score. pistol-training.com will be adding the initial twelve $20s to the pot, too!

The winner will also be awarded a special plaque.

And of course, competitors are also eligible for a F.A.S.T. Challenge Coin if two of their three runs are clean and performed in less than five seconds. (note: while competitors can sign up as many times as they want for $5 per three runs, only a competitor’s first runs will be eligible for winning a coin, per F.A.S.T. rules)

Our thanks to the great folks at Rangemaster for putting this together and allowing pistol-training.com to play a role in raising money for such a great cause.

Train hard & stay safe! ToddG

cool idea

THanks for sharing Pkato,
Greasy, do you think we might be able to do something like this at your range for my buddy?

p.s. I am not familiar with F.A.S.T. I checked the website, but then I remembered I was lazy and want the government to provide everything for me, so can someone explain it?

Found this

F.A.S.T. (Fundamentals, Accuracy, & Speed Test)
designed by Todd Green

Range: 7 yards
Target: 3×5 card (head), 8″ plate (body)
Start position: weapon concealed or in duty condition with all holster retention devices active; shooter facing downrange in relaxed stance with arms down at sides
Rounds fired: 6

Shooter loads gun with a total of two rounds. On start signal, shooter draws and fires two rounds at the head target; performs a slidelock reload; and fires four rounds at the body target.

You can see the progress of the test from slow precise head shots, to slidelock reload, to fast body shots very well in this clip:

Good thought, Mike

My son in law is a scoutmaster, and his son has just started shooting. Their group of scouts is learning about shooting, and they have competitions between various troops scheduled for sometime during this summer. I'll mention this type of match to them tomorrow, and get them to look as this posting. It would be good if they could do something like this as a sort of added incentive for all of them.
