Made it to my first ever #shootingcompetition yesterday. Put on by @smithdubv of @practical_applications and @c2tactical. I managed to snag the fastest overall time (after penalties) on Stage 1 but would wind up really fumbling through Stage 2. When all was said and done I finished up in 5th place for the #limited category and 7th overall (two guys with #carryoptics definitely smoked me). #pewpew #diditforthegram #doitforthegram
It was a lot of fun and I learned a lot about my performance under the stress of the clock. The two #reloadwithretention drills on the second stage were #ugly. Probably because that's something I've never felt the need to practice.
What was really cool though was shooting with Jeff of @rdrgear! He happened to be in town hanging with @heatherdopson and although I technically beat him on that first stage (he had a raw time of 16.34 to my 17.70) he wound up 2nd overall- while shooting a 1911. #Impressive stuff watching him #workthegun. And to top that he IDed my @blackcenter #BCT #Kydex #holster despite my #rattlecan job and lack of sticker. I thought it was pretty awesome those two industry guys knew eachother.
58 shots fired at 19 targets. 2 reloads and 2 reloads with retention. Zero malfunctions. One miss (put it in the wrong target on the second stage) and one magazine that I failed to completely insert into the gun (also on Stage 2). Looking forward to the next one! #BobaFett
