    I wasn't going to shoot it, but my buddy offered me some rounds to shoot out of his new 1100, so I took him up on it. I suck with a shotty. :mamoru:

    she must have felt good knowing she had the biggest dick there

    unless someone was rocking a 50AE
     
  3. Thanks for the vids! I have done an analysis of the match results for every stage in an attempt to make myself feel better about my result. Other than stage 4, where I came in 13th out of 66, I can't make myself feel much better. And I think there was an error scoring stage 4, unless a guy that shot a total of 210 was able to shoot stage 4 8 seconds faster than anyone else.

    :rofl:

    I might have had the biggest dick there, but it got in the way of me shooting properly! I was last by a significant margin. I suppose that just means that I need more practice. :rofl: In the background of one of my videos the guys are telling my boyfriend that I'd really benefit from some classes. :hs:

    Thanks for the vids Ari!

    Stage 6 was a totally stupid stage. I believe it was designed by a new RO. I'm sorry, I don't practice shooting at "dog" targets very much. wtf?

    A single stage shouldn't kill someones entire match like it did for me I was in the running for 2nd or 3rd overall. :ugh: !#@$% !#@$ !@#$#@

    I was in the top 5 in a majority of the stages. And although I did so well and placed high in the other 6 stages, 1 stage buries me. That just ain't rite, when ever there is that many procedureals and points down on a stage like that should be a serious red flag.
     
  6. Maybe they can do "bunny" targets in a similar fashion to the dog targets. Everything has to be a headshot at the same distance as stage 6, and you have to keep moving.

    Do not feel too bad. If you look at the overall scores, our entire squad (with the exception of me this time) was represented in the top 10. You were shooting with club champs and previous state champions that were really advance, basically 1st, 2nd and 3rd overall (Kyle, Cel, Darryl, who btw were all running XD's:mamoru:)

    So again, you were sort of swimming with the sharks in our squad. Which is good and bad, bad because you fell into the new shooters trap of trying to keep up with the "fast squad" but good because you got a lot of really good tips and some first hand experience shooting with a seasoned squad. The guy in the video telling you you could "benefit" from training speaks from experience as he has a ton of training and is one of our multiple state champions. (He was 2007 overall State champ)

    Stay with it, I can show you a few things you can definitely improve upon with your grip that should keep your muzzle down, as well as get you in and out of position better. You did well for a new shooter!

    yeah dude, that stage was "soo far king we todd did" seriously, that was the worst stage I've ever ran in IDPA. My overall time was 3/4ths of my raw time ( 72/99) If you look at my raw time, it would have put me up there in the top 5 overall, and one stage buries it for me. Sorry, I sound like sour grapes but that was a horrible stage and i don't see how it was a test of shooting proficiencies in a practical manner.
     
  9. This match had an average FTN of 1.5/shooter (excluding Laurel's result) Last month (without the dog stage) had an average of .64FTN/shooter. I didn't go back and analyze other matches, but seeing an average 3-fold increase in FTN is not only statistically significant, but points to a definite poorly designed stage.

    I don't know shit, but it looked like that baggy hanging open shirt you had on wasn't helping anything.

    It's IDPA rules, that's how we run the game. Everything is drawn from concealment. Shooters gun and magazines must be hidden. You should be able to raise your arms up and your "concealment garment" hide your gear.

    IPSC is where we don't have to abide by those silly rules.

    In the past, those kind of stages would have been thrown out because of the results. I was already skeptic when I found out it was a new stage designer. and then there are some instances where the MD will back the course designer and "stick to their guns". I hope they decide to throw that stage out, that would drastically change standings. But it's after the fact now, I know I did well anyhow. My gun ran well, I felt smooth, I'm ready for State championships next month!
     
  13. Ok, a slightly better analysis of FTNs over the last 4 matches. This time I only looked at shooters that were classified as MM or better. There were a number of extreme outliers in the UC and NV groups that would have skewed the results, and since a number of those people only shot a match here and a match there it wouldn't have been consistent for the analysis. Here are the FTN/shooter results for the last 4 months.

    April: .67
    May: .91
    June: .47
    July: 1.39

    I don't know what happened in May, I only observed a few stages, but even with May's result, July's 1.39 is 52% higher than the second highest month (May), and 2.03 times higher than the average of April-May-June.

    I just noticed you grabbing around trying to get at your gun or magazine. I don't remember which now.

    You looked like you were doing well to me. You wouldn't catch me out there making a fool of myself. :o

    In the last stage I had my hand on my magazine and I was trying to eject the empty one. I'm kinda weak and occasionally can't eject the mag easily with my left index finger (controls are designed for righties to use their thumbs), you can hear me yelling "Come out!" at the magazine before I reach over with my right hand to get the damn thing out.
