Going for a grave ? No, not mine.

Regarding classification:

I’m 60 years old, suffer from Osteoarthritis and Psoriatic Arthritis for the last 15 years (have to take infusions), a cataract surgery, 60% vision loss in the other eye, ruptured a lower disc 24 years ago, multiple motorcycle injuries, 2 hernias, couple of holes in me, and multiple cancer surgeries. GM might have been a reality 40 years ago, but not now. All I have to do is live longer than any other shooter in my division and classification.

You guys are just pups, with only a handful of matches under your belt. Sure, you may have quick movements, perfect eyesight, and can hop and down. And I hope you do well in the game. But both of you guys have a lot to learn.
Advice? Don't see where I gave any, except where I said that you don't have to take your finger off the trigger to transition, unless movement is involved. That is not advice *from me*, but the rule book.

As far as "moving up" by wins/classification, being as I only started 6 weeks ago there's plenty of time for that. All I've done is show up at a match and shoot as best as I could. I don't sandbag, and I will show up at a match, already have one picked out.

The one thing that *needs* to be learned by anyone reading this thread, is that you need to have your finger OFF the trigger while moving. As so CLEARLY is stated in the rules in post #14.

Or you might not live to be 60. Or 61.
