SCCA Autocross 08/03/2019

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.

USPSA Action Pistol Match 07/27/2019

Another great time at a local USPSA match shooting my optic-equipped CZ-USA Shadow 2.  I didn't really make any mistakes, but I certainly wasn't very fast. Came in 3rd place Overall.

Outlaw 3-Gun Match 07/21/2019

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.

IDPA Action Pistol Match 07/07/2019

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.

Outlaw 3-Gun Match 06/23/2019

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).

USPSA Action Pistol Match 06/22/2019

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.

IDPA Action Pistol Match 06/19/2019

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. 😜
