Just a few comments on the first USPSA match of the season at Sparta, IL. I haven't shot a USPSA match in 4 months. The matches at ARPC are on Sundays, which are obviously out for me.
I thought I did pretty well, but came away with some things to work on.
- work on smooth, fast reloads when moving from a position
- work on shooting steel from awkward positions
- keep working on stage analysis and efficient stage plans
The last stage we shot (#1) was a somewhat complicated arrangement that required a good, memorized plan. I thought I did okay, but scored a mike on a paper target in the middle of the stage. Turns out that I didn't really miss it. A couple of friends watching saw that I just didn't engage it a second time. There were a series of steel, paper, steel, paper, etc. targets. I just forgot to put two on one of the paper targets. That's actually good news. It was a mental mistaken, not an accuracy problem.
Overall, my speed was good and my accuracy was okay. Always work on accuracy!
For the records, here's the data:
And my friend Ken's helpful analysis.
