An International Infidel Gunfighter League match is a Multi- gun tactical shooting scenario that requires the correct use of tactics, techniques and procedures to engage threat targets that pit the shooter against time and the tactical environment. These combined elements force the shooter to make correct decisions in a multi-target environment.
The overall match is divided into stages that focus on different aspects of tactical shooting. Scores from the individual stages are totaled and added to produce the final score of the shooter for the overall winner of the match.
These matches are not just for advanced shooters only. Our shooters range in age from 8 years old to 70 years old. These matches are more of a training event than a competition. Each month the match will change and focus on different aspects of training in a tactical scenario. These matches are not like IDPA or IPSC matches where you have an chance to rehearse the stage, these stages are designed to use tactical skills as much as shooting skills to complete. We encourage shooters to talk among themselves and teach the newer shooters what works and what does not, to mentor each other and assist those that are not as far along in the tactical mindset and training as others. It is not uncommon in these matches to see fellow shooters lending firearms to other shooters because the one they have may not be set up for the best engagement tactics.
All shooters are assigned to a squad for the match. the squad has a Squad Leader and a Team leader. These individuals are more experienced tactical shooters and are there to assist everyone in their squad to do the best they can do. To Encourage, Coach and Mentor them thru out the match.
Three times a year the IGL has the IGL Gauntlet match.
The IGL Gauntlet Match is a single stage multi gun tactical shooting scenario involving the use of pistol, rifle and shotgun shooting tasks in a high stress environment. The shooter is hooked up to a shock device that will shock the shooter when he is conducting a first aid task on a simulated battle buddy patient. The shooting and moving starts at the shock. The shooter will transport the patient in a Sked-Co litter the full length of the course while engaging threat targets over various obstacles including climbing an 8 foot ladder, an 8 foot wall and in and around vehicles. The patient is approximately 160 lbs so it is no easy task to move the patient around. The same rules apply to the use of cover as a normal Gunfighter Match and the shooter must ensure the safety of his battle buddy. This single stage takes approximately 300 seconds to complete for a typical Military shooter, the score is based on a par time of the lowest shooters score wins. However, this stage is designed for anyone to complete in order to see how they perform under stress and physical demands. If you are afraid of heights, or in poor physical condition you may not want to participate in this match. While typical IGL matches are different each month this particular match will be the same set up each time for that year. This is to give the shooter a way to see improvement in either their shooting ability or physical Ability or both. This is a high stress event
