This will be my range diary. Exactly 1 year ago I began my transformation into a real life competitive shooter. I had dabbled in a match or two over the previous two years; even loaded up some of my own ammo....but never once trained more than making a bunch of noise at the practical bays at the club where I'm a member.
Last year, on Christmas I was a 66% B class and #1 on my wish list was a genuine Ben Stoeger dry fire practice kit; which I got...and I went to work. Soon I was laying down some heat on classifiers and broke 75% on my way to Master.
Field courses lagged slightly behind but by summer I was beating most M's and taking a overall on a course or two - even against some legit GM's. My classifier rose and stalled at 84.88%!
My goal this year; Make Master and win M at a big match this year. I'm shooting two so far.
I'll dry fire 5-7 days a week minimum and live fire maybe once a month until spring; then hit the range 2-3 per month.
