Test Your Shooting Preparedness At KE Arms Hard as Hell 2-Gun


Test Your Shooting Preparedness At KE Arms Hard as Hell 2-Gun

One of the best ways to confirm shooting skills (aside from a trip to the two-way shooting range) is to get involved in some of the various types of competitions. Some are more realistic than others, and some definitely cost more than others (I’m looking at you 3-Gun).

If you have a rifle and modern pistol (and some grit) you may want to consider the KE Arms Hard as Hell 2-Gun. This competition eliminates the number one reason (and excuses why) people don’t get involved in 3-Gun—shotgun.

The match will be put on by the Southern Utah Practical Shooting Range https://southernutahpracticalshootingrange.com/ and KE Arms  https://www.kearms.com May 6th and 7th in St George, UT, and is the same range and staff that have been running the Hard as Hell 3-Gun and the Red Oktober Kalashnikov match.

The KE Arms Hard as Hell 2-Gun will be a 9 stage, high-effort, high-round count event (300 rifle—45 long range at 200+ yards, 200 pistol) requiring only pistol and rifle. Expect physical challenge, 300-second time limits on stages that include:

climbing, crawling, swinging, hooting, hollering, and cowbells. Because everything needs more cowbells.

For an idea of what this match about, the following video shows an example stage from the 3-Gun variant:

And if that isn’t tough enough—or you really want to test your mettle, you can up the ante by competing in “Trooper” division and carry all your ammo and shooting supplies on foot into the range, during every stage, and hike back out at the end of the day. Or really see how you can match up by upgrading to the “Armored” category and wear front/rear hard armor plates!

Top 3 in competitive divisions will take home trophies and loot: Tactical Optics, Tactical Limited, Open. Match rules are at: https://docs.google.com/document/d/16uyt2NH5Axq6ofsyNOkNxSeYjMj1e03r797ESNtTLRw/mobilebasic

This type of a competition, especially running it in “Armored Trooper”, will be a solid test of your ability to run your gear. The more you sweat in peace, the less you bleed in war…

Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Before that, he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he has embraced his inner “Warrior Hippie,” and assaults 14er in his sandals, and engages in rucking adventure challenges while consuming copious water. To fund these adventures, he writes all manner of content (having also held editor positions at several publications) and teaches wilderness medicine and off-road skills. He hopes that his posts will help you find the gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it (and the training to use it). Learn from his mistakes--he is known (in certain circles) for his curse...ahem, ability...to find the breaking point of anything. You can follow him at https://linktr.ee/docrader.
