    Pulled out the DW for some L10 action 1911 style. Shot the NW Section Championship series match today. I'm still getting into the groove of things since my daughters birth, but I had fun. Totally bombed the stage with the steel, but what ever, everyone has a day. Had a few trigger freezes, and a misfeed, my brother had some issues with his Limited Glock .40 as well. blah blah blah, here are the vids.

    Draw is pretty decent but you got to break those first shots fasters. Were you just not finding the sights or were your just really trying to call and confirm.

    I had some bad grabs from the draw. I've been shooting my pistols in Single Stack, CDP and ESP using my kydex holster and haven't played with my race holster in a bit.

    I don't know why I run that holster, I'm faster in my Uncle mikes. You just feel bad for spending so much on a holster and not running it. :mamoru:

    those poppers were set up 21 yards from the shooting box. But on the clock in front of a crowd they get even farther. :wtc:

    For three gun matches you should get to blow the hinges off the door with a shotgun before kicking it in. Like Heat :).

    Nice videos as usual, man.

    They were a little more challenging than normal, and they even ran a Chrono.
     
  12. Speaking of chronos... how many rounds do you normally go through each match? I would probably be best served to reload some closer to the power factor, rather than use the full power stuff that I have now.

    it depends, normally an USPSA match is somewhere around 150 rounds, I bring 200 jic.

    IDPA, you "shouldn't" need more than 100.

    4.7 grains of clays behind a 230 grain will get you there and then some. I run 200 grain Rainier RN in front of 5.3 grains of Titegroup and Winchester primers. I chronoed at around 176 powerfactor. You only need 165 but I like my rounds snappier, it gets back on sight faster.

    You don't have to be a member to shoot these matches. It (IDPA) occurs every 3rd Satruday a month, and anyone that's capable can shoot as long as you take an hour long new shooters orientation that shows you the "what and how" and 15 bux to shoot a match.

    I thought so too. I walked it off and it was 7 yards.

    Thanks for the information. I'm not anywhere even close to being able to compete, But it could be fun once I get some proper training under my belt.

    don't wait until you are "ready to compete", if everyone did that, there'd be no one shooting. We all start somewhere, if you want to compete, all you need is the time and desire to. There is no "prerequisite" skill level, just good enough to handle a gun "safely".

    What I'm trying to say is we host a "wide" range of skill sets out there, and we do have classification system, like a "handicap" system in golf. So if your out there, your not competing against more seasoned shooters, you are competing against other shooters that are also novice/new shooters.

    And there really isn't an "easy" way to "prepare" or "train" for these things. You certainly can't do so simply by going to the range all of the time. Your best bet is to make like Nike and "Just do it.". Once you do it, THEN you will get a good assesment of what you need to do to get better.

    Do a search for my "competitive shooting 101" edu. Should answer most of your questions to gettting started. But I'd be more than happy to "show you around" and coach you through your first few matches since your local. Market garden is shooting his first match next month, you should come down and you two can start together.
     
  24. Hell yeah. I can't wait.
