Interesting, I'll have to ask about that at our next match.
Yea...I was confused because I thought if you shot a target and grazed a wall or barrel you don't the target scored. I'm trying to find out what the official rule is. :-?

If nothing else, it was pretty funny, and the highlight of my day! :lol:

I am slightly annoyed that I do not have video of my crash and burn from my last match...it isn't very often that you get to use your shoulder as a landing skid, manage to avoid breaking 180 or grinding your pistol in the dirt and still finish the stage. :lol:

The part that surprised me the most was I still finished in the middle of the pack on that stage. Time is hard to judge when you know the timer is running but it felt like I was on the ground for about five minutes. I guess I got up and moving much more quickly than I thought :lol:

Today's USPSA match was the last indoor match for the season. Had a good day, only one "Delta", no "Mikes" and one "NS" that just barely cut the perf on a tough target.

There were only 3 CO shooter, two “Bs” and me, unclassified. Accuracy wise, on 3 of the four stages, I scored more raw points. I just need to speed up my stage times!!! To put it in perspective, they shot the stage below 10 seconds faster than I did! :o Overall I did feel good about my stage execution, I followed my plan on all of them…I think that’s a first! :lol: . The indoor stages are tough, as they’re a lot of “hidden” targets. You just have to remember where to access them. Really makes you think!

Seeing it was the last indoor match of the season, there was a pizza party after the shoot. I was talking to Neal and Sebastian, two other CO shooters, and they said I was doing well for only shooting 5 USPSA matches, so that was encouraging.

Here's Stage 1. There was a "bonus" target that was hidden and quickly exposed with a popper activated target. I got a double "bravo" on it which was nice. :-D

Boy-oh-boy, that was a one & done. Cover target flipped down and right back up. Good shooting.
Thanks [mention]LT USN (Ret.)[/mention] !
Yea...didn't have much time on that covered target. Lucky to get a couple quick shots off and two decent hits. :-D
