Varilla Cup Results
Congrats to all who joined! ;f
sama ng standing ko back to practice again;Q
i slowed down and it cost a lot. hirap magbalace ng speed accuracy;g
to all BoGs who joined the Varilla Cup, CONGRATS!!!
Great, considering that I was probably scored minor because I failed the chrono and the number of mikes I got due to carelessness, I'm happy with my result. Practice..practice...restraint
Yaiks! Anybody notice yung majority ng na-DQ?...;Q
They were really strict this time. What I liked most is the system wherein the shooter only submits his registration card and not the stage sheets, when going from stage to stage. Walang gaanong singitan, which is the reason why most were able to finish it in one day even with the huge turnout. Good job R.O.'s
yaiks! yung expected ko na 72%, naging 68% na lang pala!
I had major jams in all the long stages. ayaw mag-extract, nag-double feed tuloy...nena...
ang sekreto yata is you should see faster so you can shoot faster!
here is a post that i made and posted at be site. i hope we all learn from this. do comment on what else you can add to help me and our fellow bogs in competition.
I got depressed due to my stupidity since i already know whats wrong but i still did it since i do not want to miss
Here is what happened. I shot a match and got to place 5th overall on standards. beating a known gm. Everything was so easy, i shot it well and placed 5th since i forgot to shoot a popper which was visible in one port. this port i did not bother to go to since i thought i could shoot all of the targets in another port.
anyway, the next match came up. i shot it with an expectation that i would win. i placed 17th overall I had 4 misses due to some brainfart on my part. the winner was the known gm that i previously beat.
So another major match came, i swore to myself not to do the same thing and shoot all a's. I programmed myself to shoot only a's though a charlie will be acceptable. I swore not to get a bullet to miss a target
The problem was that when i was making sure that i got only a's i slowed down a lot. I did not trust my sights anymore. I shot paper targets and see the holes on the target. It came to a point that i shot a target and before i left i needed to see the holes. :angry: This slowed me major time. my usual hit factors of 5.5 up seem to have dropped a lot. out of 10 stages i probably got a 2.98, and 4 x 3.5's, the others seem fine. 3x 5.5 and above.
Being engrossed in seeing the holes, i miked a swinger and a mover that i had to reingage at "if you are finished unload....."
What pisses me off is that the double movers seemed to move too fast for me to see my holes in the target. I only shot it once and nodded my head in dissapointment and ran to the end to shoot a couple of more targets before aiming on the now hidden double movers. good thing there was 2 inches showing on top of the classic amoeba targets that i shot at.
I got 2 c's and a c and d on those 2 targets that i had to shoot slowly since its already hidden.
a range officer commented "hey jason bakit pigil ang putok mo ngayon?(translated at be forums of course)" SAbi ko ayaw ko na mag miss
Now the lesson here for me is that
1 i have to trust my sights like i used to even if both sights and targets are blurred, shoot at the targets and leave immediately to the next shooting position. dont look at the target to see if you hit it. you already saw the sights lift off the a zone whey the hell are you still here looking for the holes :angry:
2. dont expect anything just shoot the stage as you see it.
3. trust your speed
Pls add your comments
I think you pretty much nailed it. The Americans have a saying for it. "Don't fix what ain't broken".
Trying too hard puts undue pressure and tends to cramp your style Relax, let it flow, do what feels good for you ;f Have to tell myself that too;f
4. When in doubt, shoot it again
which is why dreaming and achieving to be GM material ain't no walk in the park
Just wanted to show how creative the stage designs were at the Varilla Cup Again, sorry for the phone cam pic, I still don't have a digital camera ;f
docT: ikaw ba yan nasa pic? how can you improve on time here? going to the next port, keep the pistol high near your line of sight.
tyvm for the feedback! called up pbd yesterday re: ghost holster (w/pin). can't wait for next week's gunshow;z
Dre, tanong mo si Rico kasi mey ghost yata sya. Baka gusto niya ibenta kasi balita ko dalawang beses na siya nahulugan ng baril. ;f
yup, that caused me 2 mikes. i did not see the second shot lift of the swinger and since i cannot see the holes i left it.
i have to program my head to just shoot it again.
kakainggit naman!! kelan ba ulit?? meron ba sa armscor using bolo COF??;f ;f
~1 lefty nga lang si 9MX
ay, oo nga pala. 'di ba reversible yun?
pwede rin cross draw..;f ;f
