Gaston at IDPA World
Posted 21 September 2015 - 02:50 PM
Of course "Overall winner" is less meaningful in USPSA where you have real differences in equipment between the divisions. 10rd divisions in IDPA are so close as to be virtually the same, and that is where most people play anyway. Then you've got the singlestack guys off doing their thing... but whatever.
Gaston is a great shooter for sure. BUT, we all know that understanding the rules in IDPA is a much bigger part of that game than it is in IPSC style shooting. The fact that he came within 1.23 seconds of winning, to me, shows that Gaston is good (we know this) but also, no one was really shooting the new division. There there is at least one B class dude right there near the top. I would have picked Scott Warren to win... I assume he had some issues.
But still, pretty nice for Gaston to finish that high in his first IDPA match.

Vogel was the overall winner for the match, beating Nils handily. Yes the first ccp expert beat all the ccp masters. CCP is a new idpa division so people are flocking to it trying to sand bag a lightly populated division. Also someone wanted to be "the first idpa ccp world champion!".
I shot this match, it was challenging in its own right. I will not shoot the 2016 nationals as i dislike where it's being held.

Most of the personalities involved with the IDPA club there and the sanctioned match there are ones I don't want to bother shooting with again if I don't have too. That's all it is, just don't really dig them. Range is ok if it doesn't rain. Stages will be challenging. Ft Worth area isn't a draw for me either during the down time.
So yeah, just a lot of personal, subjective stuff.
