Outlaw action pistol match at Amarillo Rifle and Pistol Club. This match ran much smoother than last month's match and there weren't any weird strong-hand/weak-hand specific stages. Just some pretty standard stuff. I was using my STI Tac-Lite 4.0 2011 in my RFV Tactical concealed carry gear. I only had one brain fart where I forgot to do a mag reload which left me doing a flat-footed reload, but I got the reload done pretty quickly. I came in first place out of 13 total.

Another awesome USPSA action pistol match in Lubbock, TX! I was using my CZ USA SP-01 that I recently converted from a retired competition gun to a concealed carry gun and used my RFV Tactical concealed carry gear (in the waistband at the appendix position). Despite being the only person using actual concealed carry gear, I ended up in 5th place overall out of 38 total. The gun ran great, and my performance wasn't too bad (no brain farts!), so it was definitely a good day. 😀

Another local outlaw action pistol match (USPSA rules with IDPA scoring). I definitely tried to push my speed a little bit, even though you can't really tell from the video. My accuracy didn't suffer too much, but it did suffer. I ended up in 2nd place Overall out of 20 shooters. I was shooting my Walther PDP with a Holosun 509T optic and an Inforce WILD2 weapon light in my RFV Tactical concealed carry gear. The heat wasn't bad in the morning, but it got almost unbearable by the time we got done. At least it wasn't windy as hell like it was at the last match. The PDP performed well, but I prematurely locked the slide back after the first round fired on the 2nd stage due to my high grip on the gun (and my big hands). The slide lock/release lever on the PDP is very long, so I will most likely shorten it to work better with my high grip like I have done with all of my hammer fired CZ guns. While I love the PDP and I feel like it is absolutely the best striker fired gun on the market today, I still feel like I shoot the best with any of my CZs.

Yep... I shot another new compact carry gun from concealment at this USPSA action pistol match. 😀 I picked up a couple of Smith & Wesson M&Ps as shop guns for RFV Tactical, a new optics ready Shield Plus and an optics ready Compact 4". I installed Holosun optics on both guns and added an Apex Tactical trigger to the compact. I have been really impressed with both guns, and plan to use them regularly in my daily concealed carry rotation and will also use the compact at matches from time to time. I came in 5th Overall (35 total), and I felt like my performance was pretty decent other than a few magazine reload fumbles, which is common for me when retrieving a magazine from concealment.
