Finally got to shoot an IDPA Classifier after shooting my S&W 625 JM revolver for almost a year. Didn’t do too well, wasn’t looking at the sights or not in the right frame of mind. Speed was decent but accuracy sucked a$$!
here’s the entire classifier in one video, including all the funny wheelgun banter with the SO Jay Tavares.
And the final scores, 125.20 in Enhanced Service Revolver (ESR) :
at least I got my classification and can shoot in the Washington State Championships next month, and no I’m not sandbagging!
Shot this single stage three times at our local indoor range and used GlowAmmo in the dark and lowlight. It works much better from the audience’s standpoint as I can’t see a thing when I shoot in the dark. All I see is the silhouette of my front sight against the muzzle flash and a red dot (not a streak). It does however look cool on video!
check it out! :
here’s my war wound from just the first attempt! Now I have two scars.
Shot this at the West Coast Armory indoor range in Bellevue, WA on Tuesday during their Tuesday Pistol League. Caleb ran over 30+ shooters through two quick stages. I bombed out on the first ICORE like stage but caught back on the 2nd. Pretty fun. I had problems with ammo because the range did not allow me to use my own ammo because I’m using Moly-coated bullets, which were designed to be used in indoor ranges anyway because they coat lead bullets with a molybdenum substance that protects the lead from being exposed, just like what a jacketed or plated bullet would do.
Anyway, I’m sure they’re strict on this silly issue because they don’t want to give the City of Bellevue any excuse to shut them down because they don’t enforce this rule. I rather do my part to keep them in business. So, I’ll just have to deal with lightstrikes or pay premium for jacketed bullets. I was lucky enough to bump into a friend Keith who loaned me his full power 45 reloads with Federal primers, or I wouldn’t have been able to shoot this match at all. thanks buddy!
