USPSA Action Pistol Match 10/18/2014

Video from Saturday's USPSA action pistol match.  I had a couple of misses on the 1st and 5th stages (my shots were on the target, but in the black area, which counts as a miss), so I only came in 4th out of 7 total. :-(  The last stage in the video was for a side match, with a separate entry fee.  The winner of the side match received all the entry fees for the side match as a prize.  Although I initially thought that I had blown the stage (I got distracted by the empty mag not dropping free from the gun on my second reload), it turns out that I was 2 seconds faster than everyone else!  It was only a $21 prize, but it was still awesome to win it. :-)

Motorcycle Track Day - 10/05/2014 @ ECR

This was our last weekend at the track for 2014.  We were at Eagles Canyon Raceway near Decatur, TX with Ridesmart Motorcycle School.  Monica was only able to ride on Saturday, and the track photographer was only there on Sunday, so there aren't any photos of her.  She persuaded me to use her Honda CBR 600RR for a couple of sessions on Sunday since she wasn't riding, and I'm glad I did.  I recorded video footage of me on each bike and put them together for a two lap clip.  The Honda was so much smoother and easier to ride, and it was much faster in the straights.  I think I'm going to have to upgrade to a Honda for a track bike for next season! :-)
