Was very happy to be finally able to shoot this match but after driving an hour, I realized that I forgot to take my rig with me (belt, holster and mag pouches). With the help of the range staff and a few friends (they’re such good people), we found a spare CR Speed holster for the Glock. It didn’t really fit as the trigger guard area was too big for my 2011. Allen Range and his McGuyver mind went into overdrive and fashioned a spacer with pieces of cut up plastic from the USPSA Scoring template and some duct tape. Also, he had to modify the locking mechanism and the muzzle nipple so it’ll fit.
Allen then loaned me one of his CR Speed mag pouches and I’m off to the races.
The folks in the shooting community are all upstanding individuals who are super helpful and will always go to lengths to make things work for you.
Thanks Allen!! Sorry for beating you by one place using your handiwork 🙂
Fun USPSA match at Marysville Rifle Club’s monthly in Marysville, WA. It was a late start for me with lots of stupid mistakes but got better as the day progressed. We started on Stage 4.
After a month of downtime, I managed to get out to shoot the Fathers Day match at Marysville. Was shooting pretty good on most of the stages, but tanked one really bad. I’ve also switched my dot module to a 8MOA dot which is much bigger but brighter. Worked so much better now that I can see my dot clearly, even on the 35 yard shots in the last stage.
Drove three hours over to the Tri-Cities area to shoot the 2013 Inland Empire Sectional Championships hosted by the Eastern Washington Practical Shooters Association. (http://ewpsa.org) We carpooled with a bunch of fun friends to attend this fabulous match. The stages are highly regarded by shooters who’ve shot this match in previous years.
I came in 7th place, lots of screw-ups here and there, one no-shoot and three mikes. I was consistently 4-5 seconds slower than the top Open shooter. I think I need to lose some weight so I can move around faster. 🙂
I’ll definitely have this match on my calendar next year.
