Shot this today at the Renton Fish & Game Club organized by the NorthWest Practical Pistol Association.
Shot pretty decently, except for one stage where I missed two targets, 2 misses and 2 FTNs (Failure to Neutralize) for a total penalty of 15seconds!! That basically threw the whole match for me.
Before heading to this match, I made sure my Revolver spring tension was set and locked at 7lbs, checked all my primers to make sure they’re below flush and hand seated them.
But I still had one light strike, out of about 60 rounds. I have a theory about what’s causing the light strike and I’ll see if I can remedy the situation. If not, I’ll have to set my tension weight to a higher weight and deal with the slightly harder trigger pull.
Participated at the monthly IDPA match that the NWPPA association runs at the Renton Fish & Game Club this weekend. Four of the stages were the official IDPA Postal Matches where shooters all over the world will be ranked against each other shooting these stages.
I brought my Contour HD and Flip video cam out and recorded my squad shooting these 8 stages.
Stage 01 : DEA Combat Course [2009 Postal Stage 3]
Stage 02 : Brain Fade [2009 Postal Stage 4]
Stage 03 : Table Games [2009 Postal Stage 1]
This stage is already hard and we shot a variation that made it harder. The stage rules was start seated, but shot standing. We had to sit down the whole stage because of safety issues, making access to targets a lot harder. Sitting will ensure the rounds will hit the berm instead of streaking the floor because of the angle.
Stage 04 : Bangin’ in the Hood [2009 Postal Stage 2]

Looking forward to more matches next month.
