How did you do on the classifier stage? I only got a 89% (predicted). Needed to either move faster (unlikely given ferocious heat and flabby body) or shoot gooder (only got 52/60 points). Could do that classifier 100% in practice, but my practice was with nice, clean targets not those horrible pock-marked bundles of paster tape that were left by the time my squad got there.

 

Lesson learned: practice classifier stages with the most hideous, shot-up targets you can find.

 

72%.

 

I left a lot of time on the table with the classifier.  Always sucks to start on the classifier stage.

That may be part of your problem if you think that the classifier as the first stage matters.

Read it now motherfucker: With Winning in Mind.

 

Doesn't matter how much practice you've done if you start a stage with that attitude.

 

Reading and applying the lessons from that book were the final shove that got me to M class.

I would have loved to start on that stage. I was ready to Burn. It. Down.

Then I got there about near the end and the targets were all pasters and not in the A zone either. WTF...

That's how I zeroed a classifier that could have gotten me M two months ago :)

I got 2% onna classifier I knew we were shooting and had dry practiced. I had assumed I would be able to get 85% or so.

It was first stage and I was second shooter.

Haha. I need that book too.

Similar situation here—I set up the classifier in advance and laid down a couple 100% runs. I had also shot that classifier a couple months ago and scored in the mid 80% range.

 

At the line, I was too busy thinking about scoring north of 90% to concern myself with piddly shit like having an acceptable sight picture before pulling the trigger.

 

A big lesson from With Winning in Mind is to focus on process, not outcome. I'm now forcing myself to visualize the sight picture that I want to see on each target as I run the stage, and that seems to be helping consistency.

So have I mentioned here that I think classification goals are dumb?

I fully endorse sandbagging. Win B class every time and people will take notice.

Finish 2 or 3 GM/M every match you go to and nobody cares.

But winning A Class is where it's at. They even misspell the plaque for you!

I hate when I start a match with a classifier. Because usually it means I've barely been awake 45 minutes or so. The focus I'm trying to get is in my eyes. Uhhh....

My goal is to stay at C class and beat all the A and B class shooters.

Haven't shot a classifier yet that you are moving and shooting other than going from one side of a baracade to another.

I'd be interested in hearing how The Inner Game of Tennis adds (if at all) to With Winning in Mind.

Then again, you could be a paper GM and get your ass handed to you by a bunch of M/A class shooters... but having a nice rack probably helps with the shame.

Didn't even get top lady... that's gotta burn. Lowest placing GM.

 

On the other hand, Randi managed to hold off everyone in A class and placed well, even knocking off a few grand-baggers in production.
