Ok, so its been a week and I haven’t been able to for get about it, and I realize that I should have listened to Jon. Several weeks ago he told me “Don’t go to Scheels and DON’T play with the X Five.” At the time I listened and didn’t pick one up. Continue reading I WANT AN X FIVE!!!
Today’s match started out great. My movement was good and the first 3 stages went how I wanted them to. Speed was on point and the hits were A’s and close C’s and my programming was good to go. I even shot stage 6 with plenty of time to spare on the drop turners and almost seemed like I was actually waiting on it to turn. Continue reading Curse You Reshoot Gods
Well it’s official I am a Master class shooter. I made it in by the skin of my teeth after I filled out a couple of forms to get my GM runs from Omaha and Sioux Falls counted. Now that I have the M after my name I NEED to get to shooting like a Master in matches. I haven’t been dry-fireing like I should be the last couple of weeks with a bunch of family things going on last week. I did work on some stuff and was working on Burkett reloads moving into a position around the house on Friday last week so I’m at least doing something. Next week I plan on getting back to a regular schedule. Continue reading Master Class, Instructor Mode, and Stuff
Well yesterday was the day they posted the updated classifications on the USPSA web page and I have officially made A-class. I was hoping to make Master and probably should have but yet again USPSA flagged a 100% score. They gave me my 98.7% this week since I filled out the form and am not sitting at 83%. I may only be classified as A-class for a week if they decide to give me the 100% next week. Continue reading A-Class…
Well I can officially stand in one place and shoot a gun fairly fast and accurate… that is if I grip the gun like I’m supposed to. On Sunday I shot another classifier match with both my Carry Optics gun and then my Production gun. I originally planned on going with Carry Optics and PCC but after Omaha I decided to shoot Production. I felt it was more appropriate to do that for a couple of reasons. The first being that I wanted to try and get myself out of B-class since as of last week I’m 4th in the country for Production B. The second was primarily due to the fact that while yes playing with a PCC is fun, it is kind of like cheating. I have set up various classifiers periodically in practice over the past few months just as a test to see a baseline with my various guns to measure improvement. with the PCC I can hit a lot of M and GM times with it and if I’m going to make Master I wanted to do it with a pistol first. Continue reading Stand and Shoot? That’s EASY…
So I’ve kind of been neglecting my writing stuff down lately. My schedule has been pretty busy with assisting on the in-laws farm, work and working with my daughter on her softball skills its been leaving me just enough time for myself to dry-fire/live-fire or to write on this thing. Well playing with my guns wins over this. I tried to put my match video together like I normally do while using my phone and iMovie at my daughters practice the other night and failed miserably at it so it may not get posted this time. Continue reading Busy Busy
Here I sit waiting on classifier updates to make it official and I realized I haven’t done a review yet. Basically watching the video speaks for itself. Yes I still have a belly that hangs over my belt so I don’t look as awesome as I think I should look but it is what it is and I’m trying but shitty food is sooooo delicious. Ultimately going into this match my mental game was on point. I just shot it to my ability and didn’t feel any jitters or pressure to perform. I just knew what I had to do and executed it because I told myself that I was at least A-class and this match was just proof. Continue reading Too Early to Call….
