Dallas PDCA 2017

‘Fun with Guns’ - Range Outing

Friday October 13, 2017 8
:45 am to Noon

TDSA Private Outdoor Range near Ferris, TX


Dallas PDCA 2017


Event Information and Outline



My goal for the 2017 PDCA outing was to keep it fresh for repeat attendees, without frustrating newcomers, all while maintaining strict safety standards for all.

New Skills include ‘Recoil management’ which means faster follow up shots on target. This requires more ammo per shooter. More bullets means more trigger time and better retention of skills. Multiple target techniques can translate to hunting engagements on moving targets for those attendees who hunt.


Six – 6 person teams will run a timed and scored completion shooting stage.

This year’s stage is modeled after those used in SWAT competitions. A sniper from each team will use a suppressed sniper rifle to start the action. Other members fill the roles of perimeter and hostage rescue elements. The techniques of kneeling, multiple threats, and recoil management will be put to the test.

The fastest team time (after miss penalties are added) wins!
