As best as I could tell, it was well run, ran smooth, with very helpful RO's. I didn't think the stages were outlandisly hard, not that I did well with them or anything.. but I didn't look at them and think WTF am I going to do with THAT!! lol 

 

About the only thing that truly ate my lunch was an Irish Plate Rack.. first time setting my eyes on something like that and that and it was a show!! The rest of my flubs were completely self induced. 

 

Just curious as to what more experienced shooters thought of the match..  This was my first non-club match

It was a smoothly run match, well organized, good staff. The stages were fun, but they were mostly stuff you'd see in a club match, just more of it. The Irish plate rack killed me, too, although I think my favorite stage was the one with the 35-yard steel.

 

There was a good mix of shooting challenges: distance, hosing, leans, low ports, partials, a few standing reloads for low-cap shooters, unloaded starts, chances for a little shooting on the move, and views with targets of varying difficulty. What was missing was single-hand shooting and stages that were other than 2/paper. You could put it in the stages they had by:

  1. Change the stand-and-shoot with the unloaded barrel start from 2-2-2-2-RL-2-2-2-2 to two strings of 1-1-1-1-RL-SHO and 1-1-1-1-RL-WHO.
  2. Take a couple of the static paper targets off the stage with 2 swingers and the squatting start and make the scoring best 3/paper
  3. Add a few targets to the memory stage with all the classics (say, 18-20 total) by sandwiching a 2nd scoring target and a NS on some of the existing target stands and score it best 1/paper.

I noticed that Candice ended up in open. What does it take to get bumped these days? I thought it was anything goes in production now, as long as you keep it behind your iliac crest.

The Delmarva match? I was there, I won Production.

 

It's always a hoser type match (based on the two times I've shot it).  The last time I was there the long range stage had a bunch of plates at 35 yards, it was awesome. This year they only had a few and I managed to shoot it way worse. The rest of the stages were pretty up close and personal, most of their bays aren't very deep so you get a lot of that. A bunch more partials could have upped the difficulty factor but as it was it was a fun match to end the season with while blasting a bunch of close targets.

Wish I had video of all the stages but I didn't charge my camera and only got 5

Glad I'm not the only one who moans in agony with a blown reload!

Right on, I shot Sunday as well.  Really I asked becuase I didn't really remember the sun being out at all!! 

 

Since I'm still counting on one hand the number of USPSA matches I've been to, so it was cool to see much higher level shooters do their thing.

I'm waving the bullshit flag.

That's obviously a reading/comprehension problem.

I considered shooting this match but mailing a check for entry fees and no published list of match breakdown was a deal-breaker for me.

Pretty sure every Level 2 and 3 match in the northeast still does paper checks.
