Haven't given up shooting, but have taken a break from the internet world for the last 2 months. Well at least Doodie Forum, Benos classifieds, Facebook, Instagram, all that fun stuff that us millennial's do. I came to the realization that I spend way too much time on the internet and wanted to take a break. Updating this thread did push me a little to dryfire more and practice regularly. Who would have thunk it, Writing youre going to do something increases the odds of actually doing said thing.
Shot a classifier match in the pouring rain about a month ago and made A Class. Just in time for Area 7 yay.
Shot Area 7, I fucked up 2 stages back to back by skipping a target on each stage. One 32 Round stage I completely skipped a popper which hurt me pretty good. I was the last shooter before the 12pm lunch break and at about 11:57 went up and should have taken the extra few seconds to run through the stage again in my head before starting, but didnt.
Next stage I was going over the plan I made the day before and was more or less just refreshing my plan and somehow forgot about the last target of the stage. 2 mikes and FTE. gay. Other than that I feel I shot a pretty solid match. No Mikes other than the targets I didnt shoot at.
Finished 7th in Open. Some other A class guy sandbagged harder than me and took 4th. The other finishers were M or GM so Im happy with how I shot that match. Had I not skipped the two targets I did I would have taken 2nd 3rd or 4th which would have been a nice ego booster but everyone else in the match probably has the same story. "Had I not sucked I would have done better"
I shot 91.34% pct. pts shot counting Penalties. The winner shot 88.66% .
Life choices might force me to sell the SV open gun and switch to production next year, or completely take some time off from shooting. Im waiting a few more weeks to start selling shit off though but that is seeming more and more realistic the more I think about it. I need to come up with a bunch of cash to possibly buy a business and shooting is taking a back burner to that one. I have about $10,000 tied up into 2 guns and mags. That shit is retarded.
That being said I do want to shoot a couple more matches this year in open and try to make M by the end of this season. That would be cool for my ego.
Atlas gunworks sponsered Area 7 and were there showing off their shitty guns. I had nothing to say to the guy. I was reeaaaaaally hoping I won the prize gun they were giving away....oh well.
