Hard as Hell Heroes 2 Gun 2018 | KE Arms Stage 2

The 2018 Hard as Hell Heroes 2 Gun match was held May 12th and 13th  at the Southern Utah Practical Shooting Range  with KE Arms as the overall match sponsor.  Each stage was dedicated to a different Medal of Honor recipient, with elements of the stage being influenced by the particular citation to accompany the award of that particular recipient.

This is second in of a series of posts. In this series, we’ll be taking you through the match stage by stage with the shooter’s from KE ArmsIndependence Training, and We Plead the 2nd, along with video coverage from InRange TV.  IRTV’s Karl Kasarda’s usual co-host, Ian McCollum, was out of the country during this event so KE Arm’s Marketing Director Russell Phagan (aka SinistralRifleman) stepped in to co-host these match videos.

Stage 2 was inspired by the actions of John L Barkley

PFC Barkley, who was stationed in an observation post half a kilometer from the German line, on his own initiative, repaired a captured enemy machinegun and mounted it in a disabled French tank near his post. Shortly afterward, when the enemy launched a counterattack against our forces, Pfc. Barkley got into the tank, waited under the hostile barrage until the enemy line was abreast of him and then opened fire, completely breaking up the counterattack and killing and wounding a large number of the enemy. Five minutes later an enemy 77-millimeter gun opened fire on the tank pointblank. One shell struck the drive wheel of the tank, but this soldier nevertheless remained in the tank and after the barrage ceased broke up a second enemy counterattack, thereby enabling our forces to gain and hold Hill 25.
