i was shooting a SSP (stock service pistol) sig p226 9mm in a galco concealable (if anyone is interested) in the unclassified division.

and now for my standings:

overall, out of 21 people i got 4th place :coold: (i think the first time i did it i got somewhere in the middle of the pack):

4th in my division (out of 7)

and 7th in terms of overall accuracy

as you can see, the +6 points in stage 5 really screwed me up. 5/6 of them were from only hitting the target once (instead of twice). had i hit it, i would have only been up 1 point in that stage, and my final results would be much different. but fuck speculation :) i'm happy with how i did and look forward to next month's shoot.

Niiice. Fast and accurate. Keep on keeping on. If you want to leave the rest of those IDPA shooters in the dust, take up USPSA. Seriously, your proficiency just sky rockets.

Good job tho'.

next month there is a three gun match, and an extra IDPA shoot (usually only 1 match per month).

plus i'm doing LMS Defense's Pistol 1, so it'll be a busy month :coold:

Good job on jump in the practical pistol shooting. Most people chicken out because they know they are going to suck. You did really well.

I highly recommend you do uspsa/ipsc. Makes idpa look like weak sauce. Better yet do some 3 gun. That's a man's sport right there.

the first IDPA i've ever done was a three gun match (they designed the pistol portion to replicate IDPA). i did moderately well (like i said, about half through the group).

i ran out of ammo on the rifle stage with 1 target left :o it was a long range shoot.

i'm excited for the next one not only because three gun is fun as shit :hs: but because the rifle stage is gonna be more close-quarters simulations. they announced it would be done in 2-25 yards.

i might try to borrow a friend's aimpoint for my AR, or just put a flip cover on the front of my TA33 so the reticle acts like a red dot and i dont get fucked up with the magnification at close ranges.

hopefully it's a real uspsa or img 3 gun and not some watered down idpa 3 gun.

I like the long range stuff, it's what seperates the men from the fags.

:hs: yeah, garandbobcat capped a "hostage" twice. i think he ranked 20/21 :hsd:


Yeah....trigger mashing ftl. Plus, I let myself get a little too excited about the stage--exit a car, engage 3 from behind the driver's door, move to trunk, engage a different 3 kneeling behind rear bumper, passenger side corner--and put 2 rounds into a no-shoot below the second target in the first half of the stage. Beautiful headshots, though :Ownedd:

OTOH, came in 6th overall for accuracy (Hoss came in 7th, you notice), so most of my fail comes from being slow.

Oh, and I was using my duty rig from work. Safariland 6280 holster with SLS Sentry add-on lock for the slow. Plus a G22C with Streamlight M3 light.

lol. 2 IDPA matches I've shot, 2 different guns and setups. Maybe I should get a CZ75 and new holster/mag carrier setup for next month's shoot... :mamoru:

100yds ≠ long. You ran through what? 30 rounds? at 10" targets, at 100 yards, and got maybe 3-5 hits. With a 20" AR. From a barricade rest.

I used a 60-something year old M1 Garand, same range, same positions (well, the first one was the same--only I actually moved on to the second and third stations :mamoru:), and went 11/16. Knocked a pair of targets clear out of commission too :rofl:

OTOH, I suck at high-power style rifle shooting. Which is a shame, because I'd like to be good at it.

Speaking of rifles and shit. Dude, can I borrow your AR and 870 for the 3-gun? I'll pay you back for the AR ammo--or I can pay you for it up front, and I'll supply my own 12ga ammo.

@yar: the 3-gun will be a semi-watered-down IDPA-style shoot. pistol stages, shotgun stages, rifle stages. All separate. :ugh:

well watered down 3 gun is still better than pistol only any day. You guys have to train up for when the CA 3 gun series comes to N. Cal. Then you can shoot the match with me and tell everyone on OT how much nicer or more of a dick I am in person :)

truth. You had a shitload of handicaps....though the guys with the mini-14s they'd had for years also sucked :mamoru:
You'd'a done better with your own AR, brotato. :h5:
