York 3 Gun challenge - new video format

This Sunday we shot the York 3 Gun Challenge in, you guessed it, York PA.  This was a great match and attracted some really good shooters including 3 Gun Nation TV competitor Greg Jordan who dominated the match.  I came away from the match decently happy with my performance. This is the first larger 3 gun match I've shot where I feel like I didn't have any major mistakes and actually shot mostly up to my ability.  I took a few extra shots with rifle on the "long range" stage. (only 175 yards so not really that far), and also took too many pistol shots on that stage, and on the last stage, which is not normal for me.  I finished 8th in Tac Ops out of 83 shooters, but my score was less than 70% of the match winner's. I have a lot of work to do if I want to keep up with the "pros"/

Below is my video from the match. I tried something different and did a voice over of each stage describing the stage and some of my thoughts.  Let me know if you like the format and I'll do more of this type of commentary at my next match.

Thanks for watching.

Holy crap, Half way through 2013!

Here we are, mid-way through 2013 already, and the shooting season is in full swing.  It's time to look back at the first half of the year and evaluate.

For me, I met one of my big goals for the year and was able to classify as master in USPSA Limited division.  My other goal, which I haven't been quite able to do, but still strive for, is to win every match I attend. This is a pretty difficult goal to meet and hasn't always happened but I think it is still a good thing to try and go out and do every time.

Going forward, I know I have a lot to work on. To be able to compete at the larger sectional and area matches in M class I need to improve by a lot.  This makes sense since I only just barely squeaked into M class in the first place.  The same applies to 3 gun matches. I'm starting to get more comfortable shooting these type of matches and am eliminating mistakes, but I have to improve A TON to be able to come close to the top guys in the sport.  I'd really like to take a shot at the 3 Gun Nation Pro qualifier in 2015 so there is definitely a ton of work to be done.

I need to step up my dry fire practice which has been next to nothing right now (I know!). I also need to stick with my workout plan so I can drop some pounds and get some of that speed that I used to have in my younger hockey days back.

How are your 2013 goals coming along? Have you met them already? Are you on the way to reaching them? Have you had to re-evaluate and change your goals?  I want to hear from you!
