Match

 

 

Open Div - 2nd of 4 - 89.85%
Overall - 2nd of 21 - 89.85%
176 of 190 available points - 24A 14C - 92.63% (No penalties)

 

 

Fun lil' indoor match, haven't hit it up in awhile so I decided to drive up. Thought I did ok, about 90% of the GM is good for me. Messed up the reload on the last stage but it was like 20 match points so who cares.

Match

 

 

Open Div - 4th of 10 - 82%
Overall - 6th of 50 - 82%
683 of 740 available points - 119A 21C 7D 1M - 92.29% (94.32% without penalties)

 

 

I learned from this match as I've been pushing speed, my SOTM has gotten sloppy, particularly with steel. I'm focusing on that in DF now, along with seeing my stupid dot on the steel before I pull the trigger. Remarkably hard thing to do. Kind of disappointed, I came in like 3rd master which is stupid. I need to get more better.

A bit off topic but that looks like a match with great stages!

Match

 

 

Open Div - 3rd of 13 - 84.19%
Overall - 3rd of 73 - 84.17%
Classifier 13-01 "Disaster Factor" (8A 2C 1D 1M 6.69s) - 5.9791 HF - 53.11%
646 of 685 available points - 118A 15C 3D 1M - 94.30% (95.76% without penalties)

 

I shot good points this match and 85% of the two GMs, so I suppose it was... decent. I did suffer my first unintentional fall shooting USPSA. Note to self, take a minute and collect yourself even if you feel fine, I was like 'no I'm good' and shot right after that and shot like shit. The strong hand stuff I could have nailed shot for shot any other time. Lesson learned.

Been light on updates, I've been practicing a lot. Feel like my level of skill is improving, if fitfully. You know, over all. As a trend.

 

But I had a good match so I decided I'd post it.

 

 

Open Div - 4th of 20 - 87.797%
Overall - 4th of 73 - 87.797%
Classifier 09-09 "Lightning and Thunder" (8A 9C 1NPM) - 76 HF - 84.44%%
686 of 745 available points - 114A 3B 27C 3D 1M 1NPM - 92.08% (93.42% without penalties)

 

 

I think I can see improvements in my shooting and transitions and my movement. When I fuckup (which I do) I think it's less of an impact than before. I can keep chasing this!

 

 

After this I shot Berry's Steel. I'll post that up in a bit.

Combined
Open Div - 8th of 62 - 80.06%
-
Steel Challenge
Open Division - 8th of 62
Overall - 23rd of 220
-
TNS (Time Plus)
Open Division - 9th of 62
Overall - 10th of 220
-
Par Time
Open Division - 11th of 62
Overall - 17th of 220

 

 

Berry's Steel Open! I gotta say this was probably the funnest match I've ever shot, and man, unexpectedly difficult. From what video I've seen and from shooter anecdotes they really cranked up the difficulty this year. Like, you can't even see targets in the videos. Because there were a bunch of 2x4" rams, 2x3" chickens, 2x2" dixie cups out at distance. Wicked.

 

Like this, what the heck.

Anyway, I think having an optic was a huge bonus, it seemed like many of the irons shooters were frustrated at the difficulty. I think an ability to go as close to 1 for 1 on the steel as possible would help though, and retaining the proper mindset between changing modes from par time to time plus.

I managed 8th and 80% of Kincaid so I was pretty pleased. My lack of interest in steel challenge definitely brought me down but I was consistently decent at the par time stages and gained ground on the time plus stages.

 

I'd go again.

TNS is by far my favorite action pistol ruleset. The relay looked fun.

I've been pretty busy working and getting gooder so I felt like posting an update.

I made GM! Barely.

 

But I was doing up some videos and finished a couple that I think really show how my work has paid off. I worked particularly on aggression in my shooting, taking less time to enter and exit, and blending my shooting into moving.
