IDPA Action Pistol Match 02/03/2018

I was really excited to shoot my optic equipped CZ P-09 in the new Carry Optics Division of IDPA, only to find out that it's not an approved provisional division yet.  So... I entered in the Specialty Division instead. ๐Ÿ˜‘  I came in 2nd place overall out of 18 total, but I did have a few issues with the red dot sight.  At the end of Stage 5, the red dot shut off while I was engaging the last two targets of the stage (you can see how slowly I shot them in the video).  Cycling through the power/mode button on the side of the Burris Fastfire 3 optic, I was able to get the red dot to come back on, but it disappeared again during one of the strings of the new 5x5 Classifier stage at the end of the video.  I still did okay on the Classifier (Expert in ESP), but I was concerned with this issue.  When I got home and inspected the optic closer, I realized that the battery cover was about 1/4 turn from coming off, which would explain why the dot kept turning off randomly.  Lesson learned... tighten that battery cover before every match! ๐Ÿ˜œ
