Just a tad bummed about my performance on a classifier at my indoor match yesterday.
Classifier CM 99-48
Time was pretty good, for me at least, going in cold first shooter of the night at 8.7s. Hits not so good. 8A 2C 2M, with the two mikes coming in on the 12 yard tuxedo. Not my run that threw me, but the two mikes were just left of the a zone, I mean juuuust enough ,maybe 3/4 of an inch, to be all black instead of breaking the line.
I have a feeling I sped up slightly after the reload and had I taken just a little more time on the far target the hit factor would have been better.
Being a realist, I have the feeling that when I do get a classification it will either be high D or low C. Special Classifier match in December so I’ll see how much I can improve before then. Definitely not going to come out of the gate with a B classification by any means, but I’m going to try for mid to high C class. Won’t break my heart if I don’t get that far though. I mean shit I’ve been doing this uspsa thing for less than a year and the only live fire practice I get is the weekly indoor matches.
The one thing I did do differently was literally stand there and visualized how it was going to go in my head as I was standing on the line. I know, not much of an epiphany for some, but to me it was damn near a revelation, because it went down just about exactly how it went down in my head. Also helped to get rid of the jitters i usually get right before the buzzer goes off.
