Remington 870 is a very reliable and flexible shotgun. This year I am using it in practical shooting competitions. Here is video with 10 stages from recent IPSC competition.
Just returned from Hungary. I visit Central European Shotgun Open competition each year since the 2012. The shooting range where this competition is held is near Debrecen. It is fun to compete with shooters from all over the world. Shotgun shooters are very friendly and it is easy to make friends.
It was a pleasure to meet my friends from Hungary, Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Slovakia.
As you may know from the About section, I live in Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine.
We had a Kyiv Shotgun Open, 2016, Practical shooting shotgun competition recently. I have won it and this victory means a lot to me. I was shooting in a pre-match day (because I worked as Range Officer during the main match) and it was raining for 6 hours and such conditions were very unusual to me. But I did my best and won gold!
Victory on the 1st stage of the Ukraine Practical Shotgun Shooting Cup! The competition was very tough this time. There were a lot of good shooters but I was better :)
Shotgun Championship of Ukraine
Was so busy and forgotten to share one of the best thing that happened to me this year! :) I am Champion of Ukraine for the second time. Thanks to all of you for support. The competition was the biggest this year, so I had to train very hard to get the 1st place. But I did it and I am happy. My family supported me and it was very important.
Central European Shotgun Open 2015 finished. We had 10 stages one the first day (176 birdshot and 9 slugs) and 10 stages on the 2nd day (about 100 birdshot and 8 buckshot).
Last year I was 14th, this year I am 11th. I am satisfied with result but I know that I can do much better, so let’s wait for the next year.
Stages were very interesting and challenging.
I was 2nd this time. Not a bad result but you always want to be first if you have experienced that great feeling of being first.
Some stages from the competition:

Going home, more details soon!
