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).

Great day at the range shooting a USPSA action pistol match with my CZ Shadow 2 with a Burris Fastfire 3 optic. Other than a hit on a no-shoot target, I feel like I did okay. Ended up in 3rd place overall.

My Glock 43X is now MUCH easier to shoot with the Shield RMSc red dot sight installed. It is definitely not a "competition" gun, but my accuracy with it at this indoor IDPA match compared to the last match with only iron sights was vastly improved. I was only three points down for the entire match, but I had a procedural error that kept me out of the top 3 spots for the overall match results. Apparently I can't count, and I did a slide-lock reload that turned out to not be at slide-lock. 😜

I placed 2nd Overall at this IDPA action pistol match. I was shooting my Gen4 Glock 19 with T-shirt concealment from an AIWB holster. I did okay other than dropping a mag out of the gun that I meant to catch for a tactical reload. #brainfart 😜

I neglected to load up some competition ammo for my CZ Shadow 2 for this USPSA action pistol match, so I ended up just using my Gen1 CZ P-07 carry gun from concealment with factory ammo in the Open division. This definitely put me at a disadvantage for the match (placed 6th Overall), but I got the most "A" zone hits for the day. As I get older, my vision is declining and my ability to move fast is also declining, but I like shooting at action pistol matches to stay proficient with a handgun.
