A Good Sunday Match

Just returned home from the USPSA match. The day and the match started out during a drizziling rain, which faded and was replaced by a blazing hot sun and humidity from the water the rain had just deposited throughout. To say I'm wiped would be an understatement.

Six challenging stages including one classifier.

Two stages were darn tricky, with some very alrge ones with a lot of steel and targets, some of which could be seen from multiple ports, and some hidden and only viewable from just the right position. It took a fair bit of thinking while shooting to clear those stages.

The dark house stage was awesome as always, this time with a zig-zag pattern that made for an interesting variation and challenge.

I did pretty well overall, and I'm starting to shoot a bit faster which is good.

The classifier this time was The Riverdale standards. It had three strings of fire but only 20 rounds.

The first string was 4 shots, 1 per target freestyle, reload and repeat one per target freestyle.

string 2 was 4 shots, 1 per target freestyle, reload and repeat one per target strong hand only.

String 3 was 4 shots, 1 per target support hand only.

Overall I did pretty well on it, but had a failure to feed on the last string, probably from not holding it strongly enough in my support hand. Quite a few people had malfunctions during that part of the classifier.

And another good match done.

Thanks. Aside from a couple of the magazines finding the mud puddles, so I'm busy scrubbing them inside and out, it went great.
