    The Washington Am Civ division.

    I have seen it in my mind.

    It will occur using a stock beat up 2nd gen g17. And lots of dryfire practice.



    That is all.

    Great, go for it. We're on the same wavelink, but my win won't be in Washington, it's too far away unless I think myself there!

    Every journey begins with a single step - so you've taken that first step; seeing it! :)

    Careful, I know another guy who said that right before Beckley. He's me and it didn't happen. Don't get too fired up on the win just shoot your best and you really might pull it off. I'm not experienced enough to preach and visualizing is great but just try to remain calm. I sure wish I had. Just my observation and I truely do hope you win. Good luck and have fun.

    I shot a 71.xx in my last match. It wasn't good enough to win, but I feel faster and more precise now.

    71.xx in a 10+1 Amateur Division could win you a gun - unless you were Ron, in which case the winner would get 70.xx. :rofl:

    Goal #1:

    Shoot a match "clean" (all "B" hits; no "C", "D", or "Mike"s to add time to your elaspsed time/score).

    Once you have achieved Goal #1, proceed to Goal #2:

    Re-accomplish Goal #1 FASTER. Then Faster again. And Again. And Again.

    And after a few matches, you will be taking home the "Match Meister" gun guaranteed at every GSSF match!

    Because when that buzzer goes off everything goes out the window! Me I like laying down suppresive fire to make sure the targets dont advance on me :supergrin:

    I can bullseye shoot all day, but at the Greeley match my CIV score was 129.9 my penalties were 55, without those I would be at 74.9. So you know what I am gonna do all winter, repeat until goal #1 is no longer a problem. That and knock off at least 10 seconds on the dang plates, which also goes back to goal #1!

    Getting closer...

    I cut out miniature cardboard d1 targets and practice dry firing on them. I hate not having an accurate center point to aim to, but i think I am getting used to the required sight picture.

    Also, since i have no place to practice steel, i went to a "man against man" steel plate match at a very far range. It took a ferry ride and some driving to get there. Got home around midnight .

    I had never done that type of match before. In fact, the only time i have shot plates with pistols was at gssf matches.
    2000, 2001 (one match each year), and this year at two gssf matches. Portland and montana.

    Somehow, i ended up in second place aftet all the rounds of "duels" were done. I think they gave me some generous initial pairings because i was new.

    In our steel matches at the club, I place frequently at 2nd in SSP. Last month I was first by 1.6 seconds. Today at practice a new guy walked up and beat my strings by nearly 2 seconds each. Just when I thought I was beginning to place a little higher a FNG walks up and leaves me in the dust. I am constantly reminded that there is always someone better - and frequently MUCH better. But I have a lot of fun sending lead downrange...

    I should have introduced myself to you.

    And by the way... I was shooting with my weak hand. :rofl:

    Oh yeah, I heard someone ribbing his friend about losing to a glock, after I "beat" him to the stop plate. Saw quite a few high end 1911' s and quite a few guys angry about jams and malfunctions .

    Also saw two really good/fast /smooth revolver shooters.

    Nothing makes me happier than hearing about a Glock beating a 1911.:supergrin:
    I'm not going to lie I am going to get ONE 1911 but just so I can shoot the SS division in USPSA and it'll be a while before I get it anyway. Just out of personal interest, the revolver guys, did you get to see what model they were shooting? I have a very expensive (too expensive) S&W 627pc that BC Armory customized for me and I like to keep track of what everyone else is shooting, especially the revolvers.

    No, i didnt check which model. They had moon clips and spring activated belts that slid the clips into position. It was neat.
