Custer’s range is one of the best run with very interesting bays which allows them to design fun and challenging stages. This month’s match had lots of low ports which makes it hard for aging knees to deal with, at least the bays had soft sand. I felt slow in some stages because I was waiting for a perfect sight picture instead of shooting early, calling my shots and correcting them if needed.
‘Twas a great battle in the Open Division today. Nick and I were back to back till the very end where a malfunction cost me the possibility of the match win. Great technical stages that I haven’t seen before which makes it a ton of fun. Hope to shoot more stages like this in the future.
My first Nationals and WOW. Now I understand why it’s so challenging. The stages aren’t elaborate but there’s like a million ways of shooting them and the disaster factor is high! You have a high-risk option with huge payouts but really bad penalties if you screw up. The big boys risk it because their skill level let’s them do so.
Was so-so with my shooting, had one stupid double feed which costed me 10 secs and 2 mikes.
On to day two!
Finally got to the range to sight-in the C-more sight that I replaced recently. You can see from the video that the new 9mm Major CFE Pistol rounds I loaded is much more consistent and accurate. Excited to finish off my HS-6 loads and start using the CFE rounds.
Here’s the next video I promised that shows you how I clean my custom JPL Precision Open Gun that I use for USPSA. There are many ways to clean a gun, but this one is mine. 🙂
Ahhh! I’m finally getting my mojo back. That and you know the popular saying, “When the cat’s away, the mouse come out to play”. The usual suspects are shooting the USPSA Nationals and that gave me the opportunity to get up there. Anyway, I’ll take it!
Was a great match and shot with a fun squad.
Trying out Rain X in my scope lens. Hopefully it’ll be more sweat, condensation and rain resistant. Not sure if it’ll work but it’s an experiment.
