    Well I shot my second match yesterday and here are the results. I finished 5th overall and in Limited, Oh and there was 28 shooters according to the USPSA page they sent by email... (I thought the email with results was the greatest thing ever!) :cool:


    Short course I do fine. Field courses, I keep skipping a couple targets. I dont know if its the zig zagging or what but both matches Ive skipped a couple targets.

    When that buzzer goes off, my attack plan goes out the window..... Its like the movie "Men in Black" that buzzer wipes my mind blank!:whistling:


    So now I want a new holster and mag pouches and turn my new Gen4 35 into a G22 open gun:embarassed:

    Good job. Stay motivated. Everyone goes through missing targets once the buzzer sounds...haha. You're not alone. Good luck.

    Yeah, when the beeper goes off they say your brain oozes out you left ear and forms a puddle on the ground by your foot. <g> It'll get better, for now, take the stress innoculation and realize that if it happened in real life you'd probably be dead instead of chagrined!
