    Here's a video from my USPSA match today. Shot my XD Tactical .45 in Limited 10. Scores are still out but I think I ran decent, except for a brain fart on stage 4, and a hang up in stage 3. Can't win em all, but the plan was to win most of them. :)

    update: Scores were posted, I placed 3rd overall for my efforts getting beat by a couple of "old schoolers".

    Are you lining up the sights for all shots? What are some good ways to practice this? :o

    I would guess dryfire, and lots of shooting.

    cool vid. Are the targets falling down when you hit them, or are they card board cut outs?

    No, it ran fine. You have to "unload and show clear" after you are done, and I was just showing "clear" to my SO before holstering my gun. I was done with the shoot at that point. Ran it in 3.4 seconds with all Alpha shots. Beat my gloating buddies 3.8 second run. lol

    It's called "calling your shots". The theory being you should be able to "call your shot before the bullet even hits the target so you can transition to the next target faster. Good shooters can tell you exactly where he shot each target, out of 16 targets. Before I holster I can usually tell you what shots I've dropped.

    To do this I shoot Steel Plate challenge through out the week and it helps speed transitions. It's transitional shooting, and it's just dry fire practice and live fire practice on steel plates. I will go to my range and set up 3-6 steel plates at staggered lengths and do timed drills. Steel plates are good representations of COM targets, so if you can hit 6" steel at 7-15 yards, full size targets aren't a big deal.

    Here's my south african partner "Gunter". He's a MA (Master class shooter in several divisions) shooting in "production" division. His gun of choice is the Glock 34. He's also a master class shooter in High powered rifles, and several other firearms disciplines.

    He had a funny incident in Stage 2 and fell his ass. He's one of Washington states top Production/Limited/Open class shooter.

    And this is my buddy Mitch. He's your average C class shooter shooting his new EAA Elite Match. He had some magazine issues, and it didn't run so smooth. But as with all guns, you just work over the issues eventually. Several of our guys are running EAA's and CZ's that run flawlessly.

    Having to shoot in front of 60+ competitors (even more for me via youtube), with as much trash talking we do is exhilerating. You think WMD frets over gun makes/designs, you get it worst out there and on top of that you have to see if your mouth matches your trigger finger, and in person.

    Every weekend is the "sig crew" against the "XD" crew, and 1911 crew, against plastic crew, etc, etc. When your gun hangs, you can hear everyone moan and bitch and laught all at the same time. So the pressures on to perform.

    It's a blast, and my heart still races when I hear the "load and make ready command". I guess what I'm saying is, as fun as it "looks", doing it in person is undescribable and doesn't do it justice.

    Get out get involved it's easier than you think. Not nearly as hard or expensive as one thinks. Don't let it be a "someday" deal that slips away.

    ^^ great description ^^

    I use to shoot sporting clays on a team, and I loved that. This seems like a natural fit for me.
