Too damn hot

This weekend I shot the first hot weather match of the 2013 season. In reality it wasn't even that hot...93 or so and about 400% humidity, but I was somehow not prepared for it.  I drank four gatorades and three bottles of water at the range and still ended up dehydrated.  The Colt Team 3 Gun match this weekend in West Virginia is going to be brutal.

Below is the match video. I don't have a lot to say about it.  From the jump I was not all that interested in being there and my focus was poor.  I started out with a few ok stages but my points were not what they should be. I ended up skipping a target somehow on Walt's memory stage and threw two mikes for no reason on another stage. I need to shoot at least 5% more points than I did. I know for sure I was accepting a "sights on brown" type of sight picture where I usually am able to really see that A-zone and aim every shot.  The good news is that I knew I was doing it while it was happening, and was generally calling my shots ok, I just didn't do anything during the day to correct it. Oh well, onward and upward!
