So my last big match of the year is completed. 15th overall in production and 5th B. It was a fun match, mostly open and fast stages. 12 pieces of steel, 2 swingers, and maybe 7 partials. There were some tricky positioning requirements though, which added an inkling of complexity.
I left a tremendous amount of points on the table and my competition took advantage. Shot 64% Alphas and 82% of points. Total crap. Total. Crap.
Now on to the good. Overall times were in line with the Masters (average time was 207, I was 208.55). My stage plans were good, missed execution on 1 which was a disaster. Felt confident, shot on the move, shot entering & exiting, and had some really good squad mates to discuss strategy.
Initially I was really bummed, closed to depressed about how I finished. But in reality, I’m up 21 spots from last year’s finish, executed well, called a large majority of my shots, and generally shot consistent.
Here is the match video. I might do a stage breakdown later. Comments and questions welcomed.
