I'm going to keep a training journal even though nobody cares anymore. Which is too bad, this place used to be the pinnacle of shooting sports information. Even the latest cheating scandal couldn't garner more than a few posts.
So here we go:
I'm a tactical timmy deep down. I served in the military and have been a cop for 20 years. SWAT, tattoos. Pretty much everything except I don't drive a Ford Raptor. In the golden era of Kyle Lamb and Viking Tactics I swam big in my little pond. Beating all the other tactards in 2 to the T zone in 4 seconds from 5 yards. High ready, compressed ready...this long before temple ready. Gaming would get you kilt on the streez and I laughed at those POG's. But a curiosity got the best of me. I got beat by some cubical commandos.
I first learned of Dave Sevigny, then Rob Leatham, then Ben Stoeger, then Steve Anderson. I rose my way to M class and just about made GM. I won 3 "big" regional matches in my time. I've been a Glock Meister too.
But sadly I have family and a job and I volunteer for Meals on Wheels and it's hard for me to compete as much as I'd like. As it stands now I plan on winning the 2025 Area 1 Championship in unsupported laser.
Stats: Mid 40's. full head of hair, full family. Glock
So range yesterday: 400 rounds.
Started out with group shooting from 25 to 35 yards. Fairly easy to keep it all in the A zone in a hand sized group. 147 3.5 Univseral. My group is a little high, will need to tell Dawson to send me a new sight.
I shot Ernest Langdon's 3.5 standards. I think it's very hard and since you are either perfect or a failure I don't like that. I cleaned everything but the shooting on the move.
Then Gabe Whtie Standards. I think he used to be here before the bomb dropped. I find it pretty easy to shoot Turo Pin consistency.
Then I shot the FAST test 7 times in a row. Averaged 3.5 seconds from production gear. I missed the 3x5 once.
El Presidente. Average 10 HF. I could either sling it around 4.5 with about 45 points or shoot it mostly clean around 5.5 seconds. If it were a match, not sure which I'd do. Did that about 5 times or so. Draw and reloads are not very fast. 1.3 or so.
Then I shot High Standards a couple times because the set up is the same as El Pres. Best run was 7.5 HF.
Apparently ammo is so cheap now nobody picks up their brass so I picked it up for them. Picked up about 1k really nice SIG brass. Hope that is good.
