Since one hasn't been started, I'll go ahead and start it...... This was my 4th year shooting at Roseburg. My friend Shawn and I drove down from Albany early this morning to arrive before 9AM. The weather was normal for Oregon - wet. But, it stopped raining before the match started, and by noon or so it was clearing up pretty good. The drive home was much nicer. The match didn't seem as crowded (weather maybe?) this morning. Once we got our scoresheets (No fancy-schmancy electronic scoring here, Chris said he didn't want to lug 80 lbs. of gear all the way across the country) delivered to all the stages, we went to shoot the side stages (1 plate rack, 1 IPSC) to warm up for the event. As usual, the Umpqua Practical Shooters had a fun IPSC stage setup using NRA D-1 targets. It would be interesting to see what the High Hit Factor turns out to be. My name was on the board in 4th & 5th place when we left. After five well-spent dollars on the plate stage (2 strings for a buck), I went to shoot the Glock 'M'. I shot my Competition entry first, and my Amateur Civilian entry second throughout the match. I ran the G34 through the 'M' in 32.95 with 2 D's and 3 C's, and the G17 through at 30.49 with 2 C's and 3 D's. Not a great way to start the match by any means. I moved on to the Glock the Plates and shot a clean match on the plates for the 1st time ever! 19 seconds flat with the G34 with 1 string at 3.68. I was pretty nervous, as I've never cleaned the whole stage with the G17, I've always managed to leave 1 or 2 standing (or worse). I just made sure I got my hits, and didn't try to shoot fast. I ended up turning in a 18.81 with pretty consistent runs. I was off to the IPSC fun stage before going on to shoot the 5 to Glock. I was very happy with my plate runs, this was turning out to be a good day despite the sloppiness I shot the 'M' with. I tried to settle down for the last stage, as the 5 to Glock just eats me alive every year. I've had terrible results, usually several D's. I ran the G34 through in 31.25 with 2 C's and 3 D's. I was ready to finish the match, and go shoot the fun stages some more, and then one of my mags decided to give up the ghost on my first string with the G17. I then proceeded to turn in a 38.08 with 5 C's and 5 D's. Not a stellar way to end the match. I sat down and calculated my scores, and I shot a 118.20 in Competition (my best score ever), and a 141.38 in Amateur Civilian (my best Amateur score ever). Stopped by the armorer's table and chit-chatted with Chris and Glen, and got some new mag springs, while my friend had his GSSF model 17 checked out. They replaced the spring-loaded bearing for his LCI extractor. Notice I didn't mention Shawn's shooting? He didn't shoot a great score, but he had fun, and that's what this is all about isn't it? As usual, the Roseburg match is a whole lot of fun, friendly staff, and a beautiful setting. The drawback of the day was driving home and hearing that President Reagan passed away. ;? RIP Mr. President. Hi to Trey and Bruce, nice chatting with you guys. Try and come shoot at Albany some this year!
