Well, Sportshooter's Indoor Gun Range in Louisville is doing some Combat shoots now on Tuesday night with a little different run each time. I decided I'd go ahead and quit watching and actually shoot today! The format was: http://www.gssfonline.com/course/5toglk.htm I was all decked out in my glock-wear (Glock hat, t-shirt, sidearmor IWB, and one of my second-gen G19's) and ready to do my best to prove Glocks can do well even in the hands of a beginner The G19 I was shooting had just been dropped off at the range for me today w/ night sights freshly installed on it (I've never used them before, and 3dot is a bit different than stock sights I had) and was the G19 I almost never shot (the other one has been my primary carry gun; thus, this one sacrificed up for NS first; Thanks again, wprebeck!). It has a slightly different trigger feel due to the differences in wear and tear, the serrated trigger instead of the smooth one I normally carry, AND the fact that it had just been detail stripped (again, thanks wprebeck; it's embarassing to have someone ELSE clean my gun when they're working on it), so I was basically coming into this sucker cold! I'm not happy with my score from a purely statistical standpoint, but I didn't get smoked either My combined time was ~70 seconds (OUCH!) in large part due to dropping a few at 25 yards in the outer band. Now that I understand the scoring system, I'll happily take more time from now on for the 25 yard shots. I had no misses, and quite a few X's. On either side of me the scored times were ~60 and ~80, so I kind of fell in the middle. It was a lot of fun, and now I know what to actually do the next time. I was pretty happy to get 30 rounds out in 3 strings of 10 in a total time of ~35 seconds as far as shooting; the extra time came from penalties on the 20 and 25 yard shots. A couple of extra seconds there (to actually AIM like I know what I'm doing and not just waving the gun like an idiot *sigh*) and I should be able to drop this score dramatically. I also know I can cut a bit of time on the first couple of targets; I shot them better than I needed to if just going for time (X's are great in terms of tie breakers, but don't gain me much otherwise). The other guys shooting did a GREAT job of making me welcome, and kept me from knocking myself too badly; I was certain I was gonna be so wired I'd shoot the walls, ceiling, floor, and anything BUT the target at 20 and 25 yards *sigh* They all landed in the target at least *grin* All in all, for the first time I'd ever done any kind of target transition that wasn't little swingers w/ my .22AA kit, I was very pleased. Now to go for a total scored time of under 40 seconds, and then on from there! Whoo-hoo!
