Finally got out of the house after the Snowmageddon hit the Seattle area the past two weeks. Lots of slush left which made things dicey but it was really good to get to shoot. We had the Northwest Section 2018 awards ceremony right after this match and I came home with 3rd place overall Open division and $50 🙂
Paul Bunyan Rifle Club ran their annual Toys-4-Tots charity match again this Sunday. It is an outlaw USPSA-styled match that raised $1,300 in cash for kids. Always great to be out shooting for a good cause.
Finally back shooting after a long break.
[excuses] I found out during the match that I don’t do well in cold rainy weather, my hands get all cold and beaten up. Got my thumb cut on something, left middle finger pinched during a reload, slide bite (for the first time) and thumb hit the racker.
Told myself going into this match to just do nothing but watch my dot. It worked. I managed to call all my shots, except for one weird call during a weak hand string at the non-classifier classifier (stage 7). I called a 3 alpha 1 charlie but when we looked at the targets, there were only 3 holes. ROs overlay-ed but couldn’t find a double, so I must have called it wrong. That said, I’m happy because I managed to do what I wanted to do and as a side effect, took the match win.
