Much better. I tanked one stage (the barrels & ipsc targets) but managed to squeeze in 2nd. I shot with the match winner Nick and it was clear I was way-way behind on almost all the stages. I’m proud that I didn’t let that get to my head though and I continued to shoot at my own pace.
Now if only I can remember to grip my gun tight. I keep forgetting to do so and my dot runs all over the place.
Great stages! High round count (211rnds) and very tight and varied positions. It was a good match but I got my head working against me again. Need to find a way to shutdown the noise and play. This is one of the Northwest Series matches where we all earn points and get a chance to earn slots to the Nationals (plus some cash). Can’t wait for next one in Renton.
After a dismal performance last month, I loaded up 200 rounds of good ammo using proper bullets and headed out for this awesome match. This month Marysville setup 7 stages featuring a Rhodesian wall and Bianchi style movers. It was a fun match to shoot. I came in 2nd Overall with two stage wins. I’m still not consistent enough, swaying from stages wins to 6th and 7th places.
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.
