Calls Shots (8/11)

  1. I'm the match director for Weld County Practical Shooters, are you registered for my match tomorrow?
  2. I've always wondered how you do a 3-2-1 and keep the squads moving thru the stages without backing things up.
  3. I'd choose the bigger match. I shoot the match in Pueblo Colorado when I'm not working. It's over 2 hours from the house each way. If you carpool the drive isn't too bad. I drive over 4 hours to shoot for 90 seconds, but I get to trash talk for 8 hours.
  4. Well, when your setup crew consists of yourself and 5 guys in their 60s and 70s there's a difference between what you would like to do and what you can do. We have been drawing 9 shooters to our monthly matches this winter, so a setup crew of 6 was pretty impressive turnout. Big field stages take time, if you're gonna build a few of these, then that means some of the other stages need to be quick to setup. In addition, ICORE allows for more variation in stage design than USPSA and I think you'd be foolish to not have a little more variety in your match.
  5. Just a few days out now, I wanted to let everyone know what the schedule is for the match. The range will be open to walk the stages on Friday after 12 PM. We may still be working on a few stages, but the gate will be open. If you plan on looking the stages over on Friday, drop me a PM so I know you're coming. I can stay there as late as 6 PM, but I'll likely leave earlier if no one has let me know to expect them. If you've never been to our match before, the address of the range is: 38967 CR 51 Eaton, CO 80615 On match days, the front gate can be opened by pushing the red button under the sign. On Saturday, the gate will be open by 7 AM. The gate will be locked again just before 9 AM, please arrive on time. Shooter check in will open at 8 AM in the pistol classroom across from the covered pavilion. There will be a shooters meeting at the pavilion at 8:45, with first shots to follow at 9 AM. After the scores are finalized, we will tear down the stages and then hold the awards ceremony. We will have bottled water at all of the safety areas, and lunch will be served at noon. I look forward to shooting with all of you this weekend. -Pat Jones
  6. I like steel to go down so I load my 38 to to 135 PF. I'm shooting L6 at the ICORE Rocky Mountain Regional this year. The 625 makes about 172 PF.
  7. That looks to have damaged more than the bushing, looks to be into the frame. I'd send it home for a visit. That powder charge in below book max, but that assumes the primer and brass is the same as what the book specifies. https://www.vihtavuori.com/reloading-data/handgun-reloading/?cartridge=36 How many rounds of this did he shoot thru the gun?
  8. Where are you staying? The range is on the plains east of I-25. There's not a lot out there other than the range itself. West of I-25 you have Ft Collins which sits at the base of the mountains, https://www.visitftcollins.com/things-to-do/
  9. This. And remember, there is a difference between where your sights are when you begin to pull the trigger and where they are when you're done pulling the trigger. Aiming doesn't stop when you make the decision to pull the trigger, you must continue to aim -while- you pull the trigger. The excellent 1911 trigger can be a crutch that hides this fault in your shooting.
  10. Calling shots is knowing where each shot went based on what you saw your sights do, this is different than missing less. It sounds like you need to get to the point where you can shoot a match penalty free. Can you hit all the targets in a typical match if you remove the time pressures?
  11. Jeff, lots of whining about minor not being "competitive". Are you competitive? None of this matters until the shooter is capable of winning a match.
  12. I'm a revolver and single stack shooter. With a low cap gun you have to spend a higher amount of your time reacting to your sights. With more available make up shots, you can shoot faster and correct the mistakes you see. To be fast in singlestack you have to be able to shift between two different ways of shooting depending on how much extra ammo you have for each individual array. Check out the link below.
  13. Just got back from Wyoming last night. Thanks to everyone in Torrington who put the match on. I had a great time and I look forward to shooting the Cowboy State Championship again next year.
  14. It seems to me that the people who whine the most about their pet gun not being "competitive" in some random division wouldn't be competitive if we let them shoot a submachine gun in revolver division. Stop fooling with the divisions.
