Oh finally. I told myself after my dismal performance last week to focus on my dot and it paid off. Came out of the match with an Overall win. I finally understand what it means to have dot patience. call every shot and not worry about speed. The only two mikes were when I got lazy, need to not do that next time.
I guess this is my match mode. Got to keep it up.
My first match of 2016 and it was a fun one. The stages were elaborate and fun to shoot, all except that blasted classifier. It’s almost impossible to consciously shoot 100% in it. You have to be hosing like crazy and hope it hits. My run only yielded me a 63%, and 77% if I didn’t get that one mike.
Apart from that, I’m lacking some dot discipline especially while moving. Oh and a note to self, don’t snag fault line “ropes” with your holster anymore.
Thanks for a great match Dave and crew!
SO FRIGGING WET & COLD!
I told myself not to shoot a match when it’s cold and pouring after my disastrous Marysville USPSA match a few months ago, but how can I not shoot this? it’s a charity match for kids.
Some really crappy stages as my dot was all over the place. Need to make my target smaller, instead of a full target, just focus on the A zone.
A couple of good ones but not good enough. Good to hear that this match raised $2,000 in cash for the charity. Awesome! Glad to be part of it.
The November Charity Match run by the DownZero crew is a yearly match to promote the awareness of Prostate Cancer. They combine the USPSA stage design principles but with IDPA scoring. It’s a fun match for a good cause. If you’re male above the age of 40, go get a yearly exam and start tracking your PSA levels. Early detection is the key to survival.
As for my match performance, it sucked. Well not quite, the stages were fun, I had some decent runs but I made a stupid decision to test some new primers and bombed stage 6. Since it’s time+ scoring, that cost me the entire match.
So, learn from me, don’t ever test anything at a match, big or small. 🙂
Halloween is one of the best times of the year, a time where we all get to put on costumes and pretend to be someone/thing else. This year’s Halloween Mini-Monster match was organized by the Down Zero crew and it was really fun!
I shot the entire match as Darth Vader. It was really hard to shoot while wearing the mask though but I had to do it.
Thanks to all of you who came in costumes!
Production is HARD! So much work to align that damned iron sights! This was my 2nd time shooting in the Production Division and as you can see, I sucked! I only had one good stage and took 4th place which I was pretty proud of 😉
Anyway, looking forward to getting back to hosing in Open.
Day 3 was slightly better. Had some stupid mikes again and they were really stupid ones. I know what my problem is, 1) Gun shoots high at 25yrds (n00b) and don’t rush off your shots on wide open static targets. I get too excited and throw a shot off an easy target. Done that 4-5 times this match.
Came in 58th overall. My best stage was a 10th place on Ultimatum and I was stoked as I beat a lot of top level shooters on it.
Had a ton of fun at the Nationals, it was a really rewarding experience seeing what national level stages and shooters are like, meeting great people, YouTube fans and meeting idols.
