Mike Vause challenged me to a duel the other day….
He’d already bought the ammo, so I said OK!
We went to the Perry Three Mile Creek Range and squared off at the dueling tree.
(You’ll get to try your marksmanship skills at the Dueling Tree on Range Day!)
Watch the Competition from a First-Person Perspective
I didn’t know Mike would show up wearing a GoPro… you’ve got to take a look at it from his perspective!
About the Dueling Tree
The dueling tree’s designed for two shooters to swing the targets to the other side. If you’ve hit all of yours, your opponent can swing them back to you!
(We would have started out with equal gongs on a side… but we didn’t bring our waders)
Best of all, the Dueling Tree’s made out of good steel so it’s not just restricted to rimfire. Wahooo!
What we Shot
Both of us shot Springfield guns. I gotta tell you, I love these guns – I’m 5’2 with not a lot of grip strength, and I can rack the slide very easily. I also like the grip safety, it makes sure I’ve got a good proper grip on the gun and makes me feel more secure on it.
I shot the Springfield XDM 9mm in 5.25. Mike shot the Springfield XDM 45 in 4.5 with TFX TrueGlo Night Sights.
Come try your hand at the dueling tree on Range Day, June 12th 2015, at the Perry Range. See you then!
