A decent performance from me at this IDPA action pistol match using my CZ P-07 Urban Gray with a Trijicon RMR (daily carry gun). I didn't make any major mistakes, and I had a great time with a bunch of great people. Came in 3rd place overall.

We only had 5 people turn out for this USPSA action pistol match, but it was still a lot of fun as they were all excellent shooters (them... not so much me). Looking back through the video footage, it's obvious that I could've gone a little faster, but my accuracy was on point and my game plan for each stage was solid. I only had one make up shot on a paper target and I went 1-for-1 on every piece of steel in the entire match! I came in 3rd place overall and was within a fraction of a percent of 2nd place.

I haven't been to an autocross event since 2011. My local region has been running their summer events at night for a couple of years now, and I've been promising myself that I would give it a try IF I remembered when they were having an event AND I didn't have anything else going on. I captured my fastest run on video, but it certainly wasn't as fast as I wanted it to be. 😜 I ended up in 13th place Overall out of 26 total, so... smack dab in the middle of the pack. (weak sauce)
I had fun at this event, but I was reminded that standing in a parking lot for almost 6 hours only to get a few minutes behind the wheel on the track is not the best bang for my buck when it comes to having fun. I think I'll stick to action shooting sports and hopefully I will get back to motorcycle track days soon.

I was excited about this 3-Gun match because it was the first time performing quad-loads for my shotgun reloads. I purchased some used quad-load shell holders and practiced every day for a week leading up to this match. I got to perform a few quad-loads on one stage, but that was it. The quad-loads weren't all that fast (for quad-loads), but it was a helluva lot faster than my previous method of loading a group of 3 one at a time. I ended up in 3rd place overall at this match (only a fraction of a second between 2nd and 3rd place), but I made several mistakes that cost me a lot of time. Definitely a learning experience.

I went back to using my optic equipped CZ P-09 with all my normal competition gear for this IDPA action pistol match. I think I made a substantial mistake in 4 out of the 5 stages at this match, but despite all my mistakes I ended up in 2nd place Overall.

Another mediocre performance from me at a local Outlaw 3-gun match. I did go 2 for 2 on a 100 yard shot with a pistol on steel in the 3rd stage, but that was the only impressive thing about my performance. Lots of fun to go around though. 😀 I think I am going to give in and convert over and start practicing quad loading my shotgun. That seems to be where a lot of my wasted time comes from (besides missing long range rifle targets).
