It's nice to report on a well-shot match. Today I travelled to the Green Valley club just outside of Columbia, MO, to shoot in their monthly USPSA match. When I was pulling up to the club, after driving for about 2 hours from St. Louis, I got a call from my son that he had just been in a car accident. Nobody was hurt, but his car was probably totaled. I started to come back home, but learned that my daughter was at the scene helping him. So I decided that driving back home would accomplish nothing. I would get home when everything was already over. Turns out that there were some scary moments for my son after the accident. But that's another story.
I tried to put all that out of my mind while I was shooting. There was really nothing I could do halfway accross the State to help him.
Turns out I did pretty well on every stage. I didn't have my typical screw-up on the first stage. I think that's because I was determined not to have that happen this time. My times were good on each stage and my accuracy was above average. I only threw a few mikes for the whole match, and one of them was on a stage where we engaged three targets from 23 yards with 6 shots using our weak hand. I don't believe I've every practiced weak-hand shooting from over 15 yards. Update: results are in and I finished 5th overall and 1st in Production division.
