Our monthly USPSA match with one of the clubs I shoot with. Finally tally? 13th out of 21 in CO with 97 "A" hits and 16 "C". No "M"s or NS (No shoots).

Did I mention that I was slow?
Nice! I can relate. Maybe we should found the Canik Tortoise Club?

I shot my Rival in a Steel Challenge match on Saturday. Finished 3rd in Carry Optics.

Out of 3... LOL!

On a better note, I also shot my DW Guardian in the same match in Single Stack and won my division! First place ... out of 1 entry... LOL

Sadly, my Bluetooth was not working between my phone and Insta360 cam, so I didn't get any video.

There were 6 total stages, was set for 150 rounds minimum (I well exceeded) and was the second most fun you can have with your cloths on. Don't ask what the first one is.

If I can do it (and show video evidence) so can anybody. I'm more 62 than 61; never too late to start. Boy-oh-boy is it fun. The other shooters are helpful and only bust your butt when needed. And it was often.

Like the shirt?
YES...the shirts are AWESOME!

:lol: ...and I'm more 61 than 60!!! I'm right there with you brother!
Never too old for this...and if you want to have the MOST FUN..."STEEL CHALLENGE" at the NUDIST COLONY!!!! =))

I'm really curious... he said: " the second most fun you can have with your cloths on" - so the last four words would disqualify competing at the nudist colony... I really wonder what the is THE most fun you can have with your clothes on... a Canik with a giggle switch perhaps?
Well, I shot the South Carolina USPSA Sectional Championship on Saturday. Carry Optics division, shooting my Rival (non-S).

I have to say, I have not been practicing, and it showed! I teach scuba on the side, and the last 3 months have been chock full of training and trips to warmer waters. I just haven't been getting in the range time or even dry fire practice at home that I was last Fall. I seriously stunk up the joint at the Sectional.

But, I'm okay with that. It was still better than not going. Also, it was my first "big" match. I.e. my first match outside of my local club match I've been shooting. All in all, it was definitely an educational experience and that was a big reason I spent the money and did the driving required.

On the positive side, my Rival ran flawlessly. I only had 1 mechanical issue all day and it was due to my failure to get a mag fully seated on a mag change during a stage. That's the first time that's happened to me. I blame it on needing to change while also running from downrange to uprange, all while making sure I didn't flag anyone or break the 180 with the muzzle. But I digress...

If you want to feel better about your own shooting, here's something that should help. :grinning:

And did you see the Holy Monkey? That thing was a TRIP!

This is what it looks like when you can really see it. But, the one in the Sectional was behind way more cover.

You've got some serious issues with your presentation and index. Almost every target, you are adjusting to find or aim the dot.
I know. It was awful. I have not gotten in any practice time in a few months and it really showed.

I think my videos of myself from last Summer were far better. Still only C to high-C class, but far better than what I was doing on Saturday.

I teach scuba as my side gig and the last 4 months have actually been VERY busy... I fit shooting in around that, which has been just about not at all lately. I'm not going to complain, though! I'd rather shoot a match and totally suck than not shoot at all. :grimacing:

I forgot my tripod so I had people record me by holding my phone. Instead of doing picture-in-picture, this time I'm just putting the clips in sequence so you can watch in third person then in first person. No third person for the speed shoots. Also, I made a new camera mount on a new hat for a better angle of the targets.

My Rival-S is well past 1000 rounds now. I still shoot like it's Open Major: too many C and D hits, and I yank the occasional miss.
Hey everyone! I just started shooting USPSA in January and I'm loving the sport. I'm still learning how to master the throttle control (as evidence in the plate rack on the first stage) and ignore the double feed on the 4th stage as this is the first time this has happened with my Canik. I'm always looking to improve, so please let me know if you pick up anything that could be improved on. Thank you!
