Good stuff Nick. That's how I have been doing it this year. I am not great at deciphering total stage time (unless I have results to look at from guys that have already shot), but I am very good at knowing my transitions and splits for specific types of shots, so I figure out how long it will take me just as you did in the write up. I guess I was on the right track.

Great write up Nick.
I just did this at a match this past weekend. I was happy that I got the math correct and estimated the time savings from skipping 2 drop turners (eliminating 2 positions and a reload).
I was happier that I evaluated the time and hit factor changes correctly than I was about winning the stage.

The website you are attempting to access may be associated with a phishing attack or malicious software.  

I don't usually get the above from my work computer.

Unless otherwise noted, expect that all my posting here is in true Doodie fashion.  If my post somehow upsets your sensibilities, well...there ya go.

It's a Wordpress site, it was probably hacked in the first 2 hours after it went live.

I got one that said my phone was now infected with a virus and I should scan immediately and something about the FBI.









But I was looking at porn.

After reviewing everything with my more techy buddies, consensus is that the most likey cause is that I'm not using https.

 

But the most sensitive data you might be asked to input is an email address, so... Probably just going to roll that way for now.

Nick, Flex's message was probably just because it's a new domain with no reputation established, not a real flag. Back up the content periodically in case you do get hacked, and use whatever tool your web host has to keep Wordpress patched, and you'll be fine.

I would rather shoot at all the targets available even if it meant dropping down to 6th D instead of being 3rd D.  Obviously a different mindset if it would affect your top 16 placement at nationals.

 

Not shooting bad guys will get you killed in the streets

The whole point of USPSA is to test a wide range of fundamentals and mental performance under timer and heavy competitive stress. If you're thinking of the targets as "threats" you're probably doing it wrong, and possibly missing out on lessons you could apply to the timmie side.

Would you prefer to think of them as "victims"?

Personally they're "questionable hippos" for me. Sometimes you just don't have to shoot em.

Needs more block and tackle or other nautical references for me to understand it.
