Site on the Loose

1 a.m. and Cant't sleep. Front sight came loose again. Also noticed a broken ejector on the backup gun.
Randy fixed me up but I need to confirm zero tomorrow. Haven't packed for area 3 match yet.
Chronod today said 173 PF. A little heavy but it's what I am used to.
It's gonna rain on Saturday. Glad I ordered that Marmot jacket off amazon last week.

Had a really good practice with Fred last week and looking forward to the 2017 uspsa area 3 match
Road trip with Roger this year. There's only two of us so we can pack heavy and we will have plenty of room.
The Old Gray Goose is still muddy inside from the sectional match ;)

Parts for the PCC came in. Handstop and 1 o clock rail.
3m grip tape sticks to that ugly ass magwell.
I may order another one and have Josh paint it.
A dawson mag extension puts me at 36 reloadable.

2017 USPSA Area 3

I was a one legged man in an ass kicking contest.
My primary goals going in were no meltdowns and leaving acceptable shots on every target
I achieved those goals excluding the shoe fiasco. I placed 84 of 125in LTD @ 48 %
I shot 93 pecent of available points and 90 % with penalties. Yeah Bullseye mode.
Way too slow. A lot of it was because my transitions suck but I was too slow for this track meet.
I can blame part of that on my prep since my fiber was basically black and couldn't see it the first day.

It was however a fun road trip with Roger and a successful Level 3 match.
I did get a speeding ticket on the way back home.
That's what happens when you break tradition.
I should have let the other guy drive and been fast asleep like usual ;)

Day 2

SFPS 08-13-2017 Match

I left my phone and camcorder in the car.
Robert did well on the scoring we had plenty of ROs so I just shot.
I didn't push it really hard but more so than the area match.
12 of 39 overall and 5 of 18 LTD

It seems like the new registration time / setup thing is going to work fine
39 shooters and we started about 9:15 and were done by 1 pm

The stages were pretty simple as rain was expected and new format

here;s a C class run on a clkassifier

the new kindle fire devices worked fine also.

Next weekend is the Minnesota sectional match.

2017 Minnesota Sectional Match

This match is always pretty well run. the stages were pretty cool.
Josh helped me with stage planning which was much appreciated.
He got 3rd B in Open and snored slightly quieter than usual.

I had a couple malunctions and ran the gun dry once on the last shot
but I shot a pretty consistant match commesurate with my current ability

27 of 55 LTD and shot 61.5 %
made the top half which shouldn't be a goal but it is for major matches
211A 3B 58C 7Delta 3Mikes - 1FTE 319 seconds
320 seconds is slow I could probably tell you were 20 seconds were wasted
but Jon and Brandon were in the 260 second range I think
Practiscore results
Couldn't find my camera to take video so thank you dirk for filming my runs way better than I did yours.

Here is the first stage of the day Stage 3 Terminator

stage 4 Full Metal Jacket. i think
