    Catching up on WMD, this was inspired by the "Picture of you shooting something" thread.

    A couple of video's from my past weekend USPSA and IDPA match. I did well this weekend and took first place in Stock Service Pistols with my stock glock 17 in Sharp Shooter division.

    Best stage of the weekend. I ran this stage in 12.00, flawlessly. Average time in our squad was around 18-20 seconds. :mamoru: I got beat by two Grand Masters that ran it in 11.45 seconds.

    And this is me totally screwing up a mag change, but still running it faster than anyone in my group. 1 mike, 3 charlie's, 1 delta and the rest Alpha. :mamoru:

    My buddy Darryl. He has some bad ass mag changes.

    don't make me regret putting these videos up. lol

    Nice shooting. :cool: This was my first full year of shooting & RO'ing and I'm hooked.

    How many more matches are you guys going to squeeze in? Our last scheduled is October, and that will probably be tiny because of hunting season.

    Anyone that has a USPSA club within driving distance... go shoot a match. Clubs love to see new shooters, and you'll have a great time.

    Dude, you should just get a good holster. Two dual mag pouches, 3-4 good mags and go!

    If they're anything like my club, they're really cool with new shooters and getting them started. If you were local, I'd let you use my back up gear to run a match.

    It's one of those "damm, I wish I got into this sooner." types of shits.

    Believe it or not, we can shoot year round. We have 6 active clubs up here just for USPSA. And in IDPA, I shoot in 4 clubs. Two of the IDPA clubs are indoors, and one hosts a shoot every Friday nights. But I shoot every weekend, twice a weekend sometimes. Then we shoot steel plate challenges on Wednesdays.

    I went through 3,500 rounds last month alone! lol My Dillons getting a workout.

    Damn! I probably wouldn't shoot that often but having the options would be nice. The USPSA club I'm involved in is about an hour away, and there is an IDPA club about an hour away in the other direction. The next closest are all about 3 hours each way.

    Yeah, I'm pretty lucky then. The club that's the farthest away is an hour and a half. Most of the clubs I can get to in 10-20 minutes from here.

    My wife is 3 months pregnant. So I won't be able to keep this up for long and figure I'll go out in a bang.

    AB13: how would you suggest a newb practice for ipsc or idpa? the only time I've been to a range where we had the freedom to set up and run drills was a private club, which is unfortunately not an option for me here in GA. The few places I've been to out here, anything other than slow pace target shooting down your own narrow lane is a big :nono:


    Side note: my RL 550 and associated goodies should be here friday![​IMG]

    edit: congrats on the new shooter!

    Obligatory: First thing first, learn the safety aspect of course, meaning, your consious about your muzzle at all times, finger off the trigger during movement and reloads.

    I practice a TON of dry fire practice, and I'm not talking about just sitting there pulling the trigger. I read a book called "Beyond fundamentals" by Brian Enos, where I've learned all of my dry fire drills. Drawing, Weak hand, strong hand exercises. Movements, shooting prone, low cover, transitions and of course mag changes.

    I also put up some scaled down IPSC targets around my living room and practice transitions and site picture.

    I have a list of live fire drills that can be performed at a range stall. But they've got to allow you to do rapid fire, and shoot from either low ready or from your holster. And I use a shot timer on par settings until I can't beat them any more.

    If you have a club that shoots steel plates. That's also a good place to practice, because it helps with your transitions and "shot calling".

    And lastly, I practice alot on 8" steel plates rather than paper. It doesn't require alot of room at the range, you don't have to tape your targets. And it's smaller, forcing you to get a clear site picture. I'd usually put 3 plates out, and two shooter boxes up and work on transitions and moving from box to box as well as El President. I finish up my by working on drawing and shooting at a steel plate from 10 yards and then 15 on the clock. Time yourself for your fastest draw. My fastest was a 1.05. It helps to practice with other people so you can get a feel for fast/slow times.

    I'm pretty fortunate that a bunch of Master and Grand Master shooters shoot with me and have taken me under their wings. I've learned more in the past year than I've ever thought I'd learn squading, watching and listening to them.

    If anyone local is interested at all, shoot me a PM. I've got all the gear, you just need bullets and some time on the weekend to shoot and I can show you around.

    Dude, you've got quite a few clubs in GA. I know some very good shooters from there. Area 6 is a hard core bunch. Email any of those guys and just say "hey, I'm interested in USPSA, how can I get involved" And these guys will be falling over themselves to help out a new shooter.

    If you like guns, there is nothing better that compliments it. You can push your guns and skills to the limit, and see what it and you can really do.

    Believe me, theres definately a difference in what you "think" you can do, and what you actually do under pressure.

    There's absolutely nothing like the rush of having a loaded gun in your holster, 4 mags strapped around you, a gallery of 15 other compeitive shooters watching you, an array of a dozen or more targets taunting you, and the anticipation of that buzzer.

    Rite off exit 4 on 405 in Maple Valley just beyond the golf course there.

    www.rfgc.org

    I also shoot at Paul Bunyon (Puyallup) Marksman (Puyallup) locally.

    We shoot IDPA every 3rd Saturday, and USPSA every 4th Sunday of each month.

    new shooters orientation training is at 8:30am Just before your match. Matchs start at 10am and last until 1-2pm.

    Like I said, if you want to give it a go, let me know and I can meet up with you and let you use any gear you need and show you around. Just bring bullets, eye's and ears. i've got extra holsters and mag pouches. As well as extra guns too.

    You do know, one of the biggest CZ retailers is in Renton rite? Ben's Loans (don't let the loans part fool you, they've got a good spread, and it's actually more of a dedicated gun store that just sells other stuff, lol)Most of my friends all compete with CZ's in IPSC/USPSA, and from what I was told, Ben's is the biggest CZ retailer in the nation.

    Several Grand Masters shoot CZ's. My friend has 6 of them, 2 highly modified CZ SP01's. You'll see him out there.

    Our next match in Renton is on the 20th of October. I can meet you somewhere locally, maybe off Sunset or something, and you can follow me out there. Or I can just meet you. It starts for you at 8:30am. then we go and shoot at 10am. During the 8:30 orientation, they'll tell you everything you need to know. The do's and don'ts, what is expected of you, and what the range commands mean.

    Like I said, I carry a spare glock 9 and 40 to my matches, so if you need gun and gear, I've got you covered. Just bring your own ammo and I'll take care of the rest.

    PM me and I'll shoot you my number.

    BTW, this months match has a "Back up gun" stage on it. We'll be shooting from inside a car, drawing a "back up gun" from the glove compartment and engaging targets outside of the car. It should be fun! lol I've got a .38 special if you want to try it.

    You'll also need a "cover garnment" a vest, or jacket, or unbuttoned t-shirt. And you'll want a good stiff belt. It's important for quick drawing to have a good belt. I have a spare if you need one.

    but if you want to run your CZ, I have some mag holders you can use.

    My last IDPA match I shot with a 12 year old. I've shot with a couple of kids actually. As long as they can see you are "safe" as in, good muzzle and finger control, you can safely manipulate your gun, mag changes, etc, your good and they won't sweat you. they probably won't even ask/know.

    I also shoot steel plates at Wades in Bellvue, Wednesday Nights. they also shoot steel plates at BullsEye in Tacoma on Wednesday nights as well.

    but yeah dude, for sure, you can run one of my glocks if you want, you'll need 200 rounds of 9mm. I'll let you run my G17. :cool:its good enought to bring home 1st place for me last week. We usually have 60-70 shooters competing. I train and compete against Police officers, SWAT, active duty Army/marine. One of the top dogs in our club is the Seattle PD S.W.A.T. Trainer, bad ass.

    Oh, well, then maybe you'll be comfortable running my long slide Glock .40 for me then. Trigger, magwell and FO is all you need to compete. :)
