Sunday at RRGC Stage 5 had two Cooper tunnels. I had never shot a stage with a Cooper Tunnel so it was quite a way to bust my cherry having to get though two of them! I thought it was an excellent stage.

Check it out.

My only complaint with the stage design is you have to finish in either tunnel and thus is a bugger to unload, show clear, hammer down and holster.

The RO should have directed the shooter to exit the tunnel to ULSC. As the shooter, I would have stepped out of the tunnel first regardless.

There were some people for whom it was almost certainly easier to ULASC from within the tunnel. I did that, then holstered when I got back up on my feet but I could have done either way as I had in difficulty in the tunnel. I don't think it mattered much.

The Cooper Tunnel making a comeback!

Were they using plain ol' furring strips (painted orange)?

I seem to recall the Cooper Tunnels being smaller in the old days.
