Time for a match review. The first thing to note is that I had no equipment issues at this match. I used my new CR speed belt and Safariland mag pouches for the first time. They worked great. The only thing I need to do is space out my mag pouches a bit more. But I didn't have any problems with that. I just noticed they were a bit too close together. I had purchased a Blade-Tech offset and dropped holster a few weeks ago, but discovered at practice that I really couldn't get a good grip with it. The holster rides up the side of the pistol higher than my CompTac and I can't get my hand placement right when I draw. So I sent it back. I'm just using my CompTac paddle holster with my CR belt. That's probably best anyway because I'll have a consistent placement of the holster and gun for IDPA and USPSA.
I also did a thorough cleaning job on both my M&Ps because I was having some issues with light striker fires. Once I cleaned out the striker chamber, everything works great. No ammo issues either. Yay!
Second, true to form, I had my biggest problem on the first stage we shot (#5). It was a great run with good time and accuracy. But I swept right past a popper. With that mike and FTE I lost 20 points. I need to get my mental game under control for that first stage.
Third, other than that I was pretty pleased with my performance. Pretty pleased. I had two mikes, but I knew after I finished the stage that I had probably missed those shots. Once again, I need to work on my last shot before I move from a position. I tend to pull that last shot.
