    Hey guys I've been doing some Steel Challenge, CMP, and Military rifle matches over the past few years to get out and get some trigger time. I recently did a modern day minute man "2 gun" style match at Townsend Rod and gun. It was awesome and really the type of shooting I'm looking to get more into. Not really interested in 3 gun, are there any similar matches anyone knows of that are just carbine or 2 gun that combines physical challenges with rifle or rifle and pistol, possibly on steel or a combination of steel and paper shooting, rather than just static shooting at paper. Willing to travel pretty much anywhere in New England. LMK thanks!

    I’m also curious. I like the concept, but there’s no way I’m getting into 3-gun. I have no interest in spending money on a competition/tactical shotgun. I hope 2-gun takes off.

    I'd be interested in just a rifle match, but shooting static slow fire for accuracy gets boring and only builds one skill. I'd like to shoot and move, engage multiple targets, have to change magazines, and shoot steel. Stuff I can't do at a regular range.

    monument beach puts on a monthly carbine match
    Townsend rod and gun club said they were going to be alternating between two and three gun every month, I shot armored div at a match there earlier this year and had a good time. it was a bit more physical than a regular 3 gun match, but I was hoping for a little more. they had a physical challenge on each stage, it either needed to be harder or it needed to be more stages.

    Monument Beach has a "new rifle series match" on their special events page, is that the carbine match? Ever shot it? I'm curious what it consists of, but sounds like it might be similar to what I'm looking for. Townsend only has 3 gun matches listed on practiscore for the rest of the year. I'll keep watching for another 2 gun match. I did scout last time, but I'm definitely gonna go armored next time.

    I shot the mobeach event last month, it was very similar to uspsa with a carbine. they have a small shoot house, I don't recall if it was a four or five stage match but it was worth the trip out.
    I would really like to see something like a New England hard as hell or brutality style match.

    I'm trying to develop a FAL match with a Kasarda drill. If that goes well, it might get more physical at each match.

    That sounds like it would be cool.

    Hopefully Pelham in NH but we haven't put in the facilities request yet. Hopefully that can get done by the end of next week.
