Ironsman Qualifier

Ironsman shooters

From Creedmore to Camp Perry, black powder to smokeless, be it civilian or military, fundamental and precision marksmanship both, begin and end behind the front sight post. While optics and scopes are excellent technology, they are affected by many conditions that can render them useless, when needed most. The basic iron sight system, found on most firearms, be they rifles, pistols or shotguns, should never be ignored, as it is the key to accuracy, in adverse conditions. Today's society calls for on-demand, instant gratification. Is your iron sight shooting up to the task?

The Ironsman qualifier

The IRONSMAN QUALIFIER is a measure of skill, with rifle, pistol, shotgun, rimfire rifle and airgun. Make one hit on a defined target with one available round in a specific time frame. This is NOT a DRILL! The easiest measure of a marksman is their time on target.

Ironsman Rifle Qualifier: Any Centerfire Rifle or Carbine, within 5 seconds, assume a firing position from standing low ready and hit a 6 inch circle at 100yds, with one shot.

Ironsman Pistol Qualifier: Any Pistol, within 5 seconds, assume a firing position from standing low ready and hit a 6 inch circle at 25yds, with one shot.

Ironsman Shotgun Qualifier: Any Shotgun, using slug ammunition only, within 5 seconds, assume a firing position from standing low ready and hit a 6 inch circle at 50yds, with one shot.

Ironsman Rimfire Qualifier: Any Rimfire Rifle, within 5 seconds, assume a firing position from standing low ready and hit a 3 inch circle at 25yds, with one shot.

Ironsman Airgun Qualifier: Any Airguns, within 5 seconds, assume a firing position from standing low ready and hit a crimped bottle cap at 33ft, with one shot.

Set up an Ironsman Qualifier!

(Do the following in a safe place and in a safe way, these are guns that really go bang!) Set up a target of proper size, at the defined range for the choice of firearm. Download one of many shot clocks for the smart device on hand and set it for a five second limit. Have a second shooter run the clock, making sure maximum safety is observed at all times.

As the Esteemed Merritt Edson said, "One hundred rounds do not constitute firepower. One hit constitutes firepower."
