Great job Vitaly!

Thank you for posting the videos and pics!

Is that birdshot you're shooting on those stages?

Very cool Vitaly! IPSC looks like a lot of fun I will have to ask my local range if they host any activities/competitions.

Out of curiosity what type of gloves do you wear when shooting? I was considering a pair to reduce risk of any burns and just general exposure to lead and whatnot.

Yes, IPSC is very interesting! When you hear the sound of timer, you feel the adrenaline bump and it is completely different from shooting without time pressure. I will make a post about different IPSC equipment this week end.

I use Camelbak Vent gloves:

This is second pair of gloves which I bought. First pair was durable and started to wear out after year of dry fire trainings and competitions, this is extremely good result.

I never use my shotgun without gloves, have seen to many burns and scratches. Also, you load your shotgun faster when you are not afraid of scratches and sharp edges.

Thanks!

Yes, but we have had several stages with slugs and several stages with buckshot. Some of the stages had moving targets.

Vitaly, are they good for reloading? Because I used military Camelbak Max Grip, they are really soft, but not convenient while reloading...

Stan, yes, they are tight and enable you to load your shotgun fast without getting your glove caught by carrier.

But be sure to get the gloves of a proper size. I have smaller hands and use "S" sized gloves. Also, this proves that you don't need to have huge hands to be able to hold and load 4 shells at a time :)
