Outlaw Steel Action Pistol Match - 07/22/2023

Outlaw Steel Action Pistol match at 41 Lead Farm in Lubbock, TX. Again shooting my new custom Sig Sauer P320 X5 Legion. The gun has been running great during my live-fire practice sessions, and I've been slowly getting used to the trigger and the recoil characteristics of the gun. I still can't run it as fast as some of my other guns, but it's been fun shooting it. The stages at this match were all challenging and fun, and my performance wasn't too bad. Ended up in 5th place Overall out of 54 total. 👍

USPSA Action Pistol Match - 07/08/2023

USPSA action pistol match at 41 Lead Farm in Lubbock, TX. I was shooting a new gun in the Open division that I recently put together from parts... a custom Sig Sauer P320 XFive Legion with a ZevTech Z320 XCompact Octane slide and a Parker Mountain Machine Ultra compensator and barrel. After texturing multiple Sig TXG tungsten infused heavy grip modules at RFV Tactical for some of my USPSA friends, I was so impressed with the grips that I decided to get one to build my own custom P320. While this gun definitely shoots flatter and faster than a P320 without a compensator, it still isn't nearly as flat and fast as any of my CZs, 2011s, or Glocks due to the high bore axis and mushy trigger. I plan to shoot a couple more matches with the gun before I go back to rotating through all of my favorites. I ended up in 14th place Overall out of 58 total. Unfortunately, I had a miss and three no-shoot hits (and a LOT of make-up shots), so I definitely didn't perform as well as I usually do with my other guns.

UPDATE: I recently discovered that I had not zeroed the optic properly, which explains all the no-shoot hits and the need for a lot of make-up shots at this match. 😕
