Thought it would fun to have a thread where we can watch videos of our member competing with their "CANIKS"!

Here's a stage from my first USPSA match from this morning...



Proudly wearing the shirt @Janik made for me.

That is awesome, Squatch! What are the age limits for children in these types of competitions?

It just depends on the organization, but most are open to getting youth involved.
My daughter is 8 and the group we shoot with has been great with letting her learn and participate.

Before the comments in the video, I'm thinking NICE GRIP, GOOD GUN CONTROL, and EXCELLENT MAG CHANGES!
It won't be long before her "competition shirt" is covered with sponsors!!!

Also had to comment on the nice job you did braiding her hair! :lol:

OK, here's one from stage 4 of my first timed steel match on 10 FEB. My "video production assistant" was only available for two stages.

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?

I was out shooting IDPA today and giving my new action cam a try. Only 3 stages because of the wind though, and I didn't bag my gun between stages so it got incredibly dirty.

It is, but you get used to it. It is also our clubs #1 source of DQs, even for experienced shooters.

But, I'd rather have people learn to watch the 180 at a local match. Most big competitions I go to have about 10% of the shooters DQ, and mostly because they can't watch their 180.

Had an IDPA match yesterday at Old Colony Sportsmen Association in Pembroke. Weather was a little chill at the start, 34*, but warmed up as the sun was shining.

Had a couple mistakes...stage 3, my second stage, I was the first shooter and wasn't completely ready. Didn't catch that it was a "limited count" stage, and also shot one target out of sequence shooting off-hand. :oops: A couple times I was riding my strong thumb on the slide release and didn't have it lock back. That's where USPSA is so much nicer, drop a mag on the go and not worrying about it having ammo in it!!! Planned right you never have your slide lock back. Made a bad decision on stage 5 to shoot from the left side instead of going to the right and shooting strong hand only. All in all, it was a decent outing.

Pretty happy with the camera. I shot in "narrow field-of-view" mode, and think I'm going to try the wide angle view next time to see how it compares. Only trouble I has was on the second stage I shot, I must have stopped it before scoring, as it was cut short. The one thing I found was with 2 hours of recording time, not to wait until the last minute to make sure it on and recording.
