Finally got to shoot an IDPA Classifier after shooting my S&W 625 JM revolver for almost a year. Didn’t do too well, wasn’t looking at the sights or not in the right frame of mind. Speed was decent but accuracy sucked a$$!
here’s the entire classifier in one video, including all the funny wheelgun banter with the SO Jay Tavares.
And the final scores, 125.20 in Enhanced Service Revolver (ESR) :
at least I got my classification and can shoot in the Washington State Championships next month, and no I’m not sandbagging!
I came in 10th overall out of 80 shooters, with a revolver nonetheless! Had lots of fun but two stupid brain farts. checkout the match video :
Shot two matches in this rare weekend. One is the November IDPA Match in Renton. This time round, our Match Director, Cel, put together 7 stages of pure fun, designed to be very revolver friendly. We also saw all kinds of revolvers being used because we created a special division just for revolvers that don’t meet IDPA specs. We saw classic Colt and S&W Model 1917s, vintage S&W Military and Police 38 special and more.
Here’s my performance :

Then on Sunday, I brought my dirty S&W 625 out to Marysville to shoot the USPSA match. I squaded with a bunch of Production super shooters. I took twice as long to complete the stages and got in a TON of reloading practice. I also tried switching from strong hand to a weak hand reload technique.
Fun weekend, and the weather was perfect for this late in the year.
Shot the monthly IDPA match in the Renton Fish & Game Club on Saturday and had a lot of fun. The gun ran flawlessly, only one light strike, probably from a primer that didn’t seat well. The trigger job is very good, I just need to get used to it and I’m sure it’ll do wonders to my score.
I came in top revolver and 30th out of 91 shooters. Not bad considering I beat most Sharpshooters & Marksman of other faster semi-auto guns. Need to work on my accuracy and reloading a little bit more.
Here’s the video of the match :
My goal is to beat Experts in other divisions (namely ESP + SSP) in a few months. Let’s see if I can do it!
