Sparta USPSA Match

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.
