Shooting Competitions in 2012

Today I shot my first USPSA match of 2012. This year I’m going to focus on shooting Production class with my full size Smith and Wesson M&P 9mm. I would have been happy to have continued shooting my Glock 19 like I did last year but my wife has claimed it as her own.

Overall the match went much better than I expected. I had a lot of dust to knock off and realistically I’m still pretty new at this stuff compared to some folks. I made some big improvements on how I’m moving between firing positions and my accuracy was better than I thought it was going to be but still needs work.  I’m really excited that I was able to call some of my shots towards the end of the match.  I’ve never been able to do that during a match before.  Hopefully I can keep working on improving this.

My life is starting to get a little less complicated so I’m hoping to make it to more matches this year.  In fact my shooting goals for 2012 are:

-Shoot a minium of one match a month

-Attend at least one firearm training course, possibly two

-Finally get classified in USPSA, realistically I’m going for “C” class but that’s just a stepping stone

Keep up the good fight


Frozen targets

I got this idea from this YouTube video. Looks like a great way to make some very cheap, biodegradable, reactive targets.

I’ve got a milk jug sitting on my backporch freezing right now. I’m heading to the range this weekend so I’ll bring back a range report on how they.

Fir those of you who don’t live in the frozen tundra you could still give this a try. Just leave a jug in the freezer for a day or two and when you head to the range just use your new target in your ice chest to keep your hydrating supplies cold

Keep up the good fight
