  1. This advice is worth what you paid for it, so here goes...... Of the people I know who are really really good at both types of competitive shooting they are all faster than most people. Once you get the fundamentals of marksmanship down it is relatively "easy" to shoot lots of points. Or avoid points down. It is not as easy to be fast. As someone who shot IDPA only their first two years of competitive shooting I focused on accuracy first and foremost. To a one, the people who shot crap points but were super fast are all better than me now, years later. We all have the same accuracy where now I have to try to learn to be speedy. Literally catch up. Shooters meetings are generally geared to the lowest common denominator, frankly. I very often like to go to the new shooters meeting when I go to matches where no one knows me. The shooting "advice" I hear there is often atrocious. Listen to the safety part but heavily filter anything else.
  2. All my motivation is intrinsic. Music is used to cloud things out that intrude. I want zero emotion in my shooting performance.
  3. By not thinking about those items in the past. Keeping my awareness current. Avoiding conversations w squad members who want to talk about it. Remind myself in neutral terms it is ok to succeed. Above all else focus on my actions and not outcomes.
  4. If you're uncomfortable with the conversation (or confrontation) needed to "tune people up" then I suggest finding an enforcer. Find the person in your club who enjoys yelling at people and telling them what to do. I know with covid some matches are not having a shooter's meeting before the match so as not to have 30-100 people in one spot but if you do have a shooter's meeting the emphasis should be on what their (the shooters) expectations are, safety and helping the process.
  5. That is a good plan, but thankfully I'm not the one in search of their CZ legal idpa gun like the OP hahaha. Though this did have me eyeing a few rarer P01 variants for CCP....
  6. No, not a sp01 but a 75 shadow, the short dust cover version. I've had 2 and I miss them badly
  7. The reliability of your magazines and optic seem to play a larger role than the gun they're attached to.
  8. A new Gen5 G34 fs/mos is way cheaper than a CZ Shadow 2 OR. $720 versus $1,500. A P10F OR can be had for less than $600. That's the main reason you see people shooting factory, polymer, striker fired guns versus the offerings in metal frames with hammers. Sig, Glock, Canik, CZ and so on. When people starting budgeting a gun for CO division and add in the cost of an optic they naturally gravitate towards a lower cost for the gun itself. That they can assemble right away, without having to have someone mill and such.
  9. We all get butterflies in our stomach. The trick is getting them to fly in formation.
  10. SSP- SP01 Shadow ESP- 75 Shadow, set up with a SAO trigger and magwell. You'll have to find this model used. CDP-97b or a DW 1911 gun CCP-manual safety P01 or P10C CO- SP01 Shadow with CZC optics cut Those would be my choices for a CZ gun in different idpa divisions.
  11. An optics ready P10f would be a very versatile idpa gun. Depending on mods you could shoot ssp esp and co. Make it a P10c optic ready and you could shoot ssp, esp, co and ccp by judicious modifications. Because of their design having an sp01 shadow is great to build it up in ssp rules. But have a spare set of grips and magwell that work together and shoot it clocked and locked in esp.

    Steel Cased Ammo?

    Correct. They do not have the same property as brass and can feel "stuck" as they won't slide the same.
  13. My wild A guess would be generally available fall 2021.
