One of the most popular stages at Smith & Wesson’s IDPA Indoor Nationals was Premier Night:
This was one of the stages designed and staffed by the Coast Guard Combat Arms Team made up of cadets from the Coast Guard Academy. These fine young men and women are not only great examples of our armed forces; they are enthusiastic shooters and SO’s.
Premier Night had you working on a guard detail at a movie premier. You started by engaging a static target and then moved parallel to the back of the range down a row of theater seats.. This activated a fast mover that ran parallel to you forcing you to engage while you both were in motion. You then finished by taking a knee at the end of the row and engaging two more targets while avoiding the non-threats.
All targets required 3 hits which was very tough to get on the mover. Although only a 12 round course, you were really challenged by the use of vision barriers and the mover. Add to this that the mover ran in front of a screen that actually had a movie being projected on it and you have a great stage.
