This 3-gun match was rifle and pistol only, and most of it was long distance shots out to 400 yards with the rifle and out to 75 yards with the pistol. Not much movement either. There were only four of us that showed up, so it was pretty much just a practice day to see what I could do for longer distances.

Not that great of a performance at this Outlaw 3-Gun match near Dawn, TX. I had a few issues with my shotgun not feeding the last round, and I wasn't as accurate with the pistol as I would've liked. Still a lot of fun though!

I came in 2nd place overall at this 3-Gun match, which helped ease the pain from my less than normal result from the USPSA match on the previous day. We had a shotgun heavy stage at this match, and I was really happy that my Franchi Infinity shotgun performed without any issues at all. I'm still a little slow with my shotgun reloads since I only load three shells at a time (inserting them one-at-a-time), but I'm comfortable with that method for now.

I don't know if I was just trying to go too fast, or if I just wasn't in the zone at this USPSA action pistol match, but I didn't place as good as I normally do (8th overall out of 15 total). After reviewing the results, it appears my accuracy level suffered from where it normally is. This is most likely from trying to go faster. It's very difficult for me to push my speed without directly affecting accuracy, so I really need to just concentrate on being as accurate as I can. Ah well, whether I place 1st or halfway in the pack, I still have fun shooting. 😎

Another 1st place finish Overall at an indoor IDPA action pistol match using my CZ P-07 with a Trijicon RMR in the Carry Optics division. The video makes me look slow, but I make sure all my hits are solid. I was only 5 points down for the entire 5-stage match. 😎

Well, I'm up to four carry guns with red dot sights now. 😎 This most recent home-built Polymer80 Glock 19 was just begging for a red dot. I was able to find a brand new Trijicon RM01 Type 1 for it fairly cheap, and had the same local guy that milled the windows in the slide do the milling for the RMR. These four guns are my most frequently carried handguns these days, so I thought it made sense to have red dots on them all. While I do have some other carry guns (compact metal framed CZs and 1911s), I don't carry them nearly as often so I'm not going to go through the effort of putting red dots on those. I'm not sure why, but I really do prefer polymer framed handguns for concealed carry.

This was my very first 3-Gun night match. I didn't have a way to mount a light on my Franchi semi-auto shotgun, so I used my 20-year old Mossberg 500 pump-action shotgun that has a small 3-position rail mounted on the magazine tube. It was clumsy to use and slow to reload compared to my semi-auto, and I even had some user induced malfunctions as well. I was also using my CZ Scorpion 9mm Carbine as my rifle since all of the targets were within 50 yards. I ended up in 3rd place Overall out of 10 total despite the troubles with the shotgun. The light on my CZ P-09 handgun is a Streamlight TLR-1s (non-HL version), which was a perfectly acceptable amount of light for the pistol and shotgun target distances. The lights on the rifle and shotgun were both Streamlight TLR-3. I was afraid the TLR-3 wouldn't have enough output to be usable, but they worked out okay. I would've preferred more light output for the farther rifle targets, so for any future night matches I'll be using a TLR-1 HL on the rifle (brighter for longer distances) and another TLR-1s on my semi-auto shotgun with a good mount.
