    (BUG MATCH) at the Range at Lake Norman
    This week we are going to try something a little different. A Back Up Gun (BUG) Match

    https://practiscore.com/competitive...uspsa-pistol-match-north-carolina-22/register


    There are no minimum caliber requirements to shoot the BUG match and a lot fewer rules and procedures to learn than other popular competitions. Guns must be small enough to fit into a 5.5″ x 7″ box with your largest magazine inserted .
    There are four divisions:
    1
    Backup Pistol: Semi-automatic pistols
    2
    Backup Revolver: Compact revolvers
    3
    Micro Gun: Smaller Subcompact handguns (these must fit in a 4.5″ x 5.5″ box)
    4
    Limited 5: full size guns may be used but they must start with no more than 5 rounds loaded

    What You Need:

    Ear and eye protection

    The smallest gun you carry! Anything, even a .22, can enter. The gun must fit in one of the divisions listed above.

    Approximately 70 - 80 rounds of ammunition

    One extra reload method–spare magazine, speed-strip or loader, etc (More magazines will be required for big 5 division).

    You will have the option to draw from a holster or pick up from a barrel
    The stages:

    The stages will be between 5 and 20 rounds (Well try shoot 4 or 5 stages depending on time)

    BUG matches can be humbling ... and very eye opening. If someone runs a couple with their true carry gun and looks at the real world they’ll realize just how bad the odds are stacked against you if you ever face a self defense situation and you have your little subcompact and the thug has say a long gun and is on offense while you’re on defense.
