This was an outlaw action pistol match (mostly USPSA rules) hosted by a new group of people trying to attract more people to their club/range. I've competed in many matches at this facility, but they stopped having matches at this range several years ago due to the club's strict limitations on matches. This is why the stages are very basic and we are only able to shoot into the back berm. The match was better than I expected considering it was put on by people that don't have prior experience in action pistol matches, but were definitely some kinks that will need to be worked out. I came in 1st place overall out of 12 total, so it was definitely a good day for me. I was shooting my old retired CZ SP-01 competition gun that I've recently updated for concealed carry usage by having the slide milled for a Holosun 509T red dot sight as well as adding a little heavier main spring and recoil spring to make it more appropriate for concealed carry. It's been great to put this gun to use again, as it is a great shooter and is very reliable.

It's been a while since I've been to an outdoor action pistol match due to the cold weather and "Rona". This match is an "Outlaw" match because it was a mixture of IDPA and USPSA rules and scoring, and there were only 5 of us that showed up so we didn't even bother to keep score. We basically just ran the same stage in different ways to get 6 stages in for the day. Pretty much a practice day. But since there aren't any scores published, let's just assume that I got all Alphas and won the match! 😆
I was shooting my new Walther PDP Compact with a Holosun 509T optic with my everyday concealed carry gear from RFV Tactical. This PDP has surprised me to the point that it's all I've been carrying and shooting lately. It might even dethrone the CZ P-07 as king of all the compact carry guns!
