    Dude, how do you carry on? I guess like I did, just grin and bear it. I hope you are scoring better than I was.

    I wish. Right now I am in 2 1/2 years of L&I denial. Not a fun time. I have asked my Lawyer if I could just get the surgery under my current insurance, he says no. I might have to drop out completely, bummer too.

    You are right about that, I actually was doing the double tap thing when I was shooting the Glock 357 Open gun in USPSA and did find it to work. I'll work on using the dot to aim in the next practice. I found a clip from June 2018 and uploaded a slow mo below. I'm using the same load and PF. 8# spring at 8 yards. Results at the end. Gun still seems to flip. Better grip? I'm not totally using a Hulk Grip, it's tight, but still trying to stay relaxed.

    NW01...ah, that's the magic word. I'll check that. Puyallup has been on my mind for a few years, look forward joining you guys. Thanks.

    The slow mo version. Dot is just all over the place, not really a consistent pattern. Seems I am controlling the dot to get back on target, as a reflex. Don't think I recall making an asserted effort to get back to position one. That first shot was a poor grip. I have this Flip Up Camera I am using on a Tri-Pod and I'm straddling this and watching through the camera at a really faded dot, even on max power. Now on to getting the 2nd shot at the right place and the right timing. When I shot USPSA Open C a few years ago, I used my Glock 22 converted to 357 Sig. Took a while to get used to, but after many rounds I found the sweet spot for the 2nd shot. It was all about timing, it took many matches but got it to work good towards the end. Now it's this CZechmates time, and I've only shot it 4 matches, still trying to get used to the double tap and be accurate. I have had 2 good matches and 2 really bad ones. Still new to me, the sport and the gun.

    Thanks Sarge, what I was thinking, but the other direction I have an 8 in the bag, see how that runs. In the slow mo, you can really see the dive when the slide slams shut. Does the movement up and down look normal. Looks like gun us move straight up and not really doing a muzzle flip. I can tell to, that I am pulling the gun back on target. Don't know if by habit or just a normal recoil back to first position.

    What do you see? This is normal speed and I'll upload the Slow Mo version soon. CZ Czechmate Wolff 9# Recoil Spring Everything else is stock about this CZ Montana Gold 115 CMJ 9.2 VitaVhouri Federal 200 Primer Misc. Brass Length = 1.140 1464 fps 168 PF Tell me what you see. It looks good this speed. But slowed down, it looks like the nose is diving upon shot and dot is leaving the window. Too much powder? Also looks like I am pulling the dot back down, by instinct? or just returning to normal grip position. Oh, the dot was really faded and could hardly see it through the Flip Camera I was using. So I did the best I could, looks like the camera or the gun is tilted just a bit.

    Thanks Duke. I found that NW Section site many months ago. Have been visiting all the sites. But for PB, if it is listed at PractiScore, then I must have the wrong name for the Range/Event. I would search for "Paul Bunyan", "Puyallup", "Bunyan", etc... but have not found the Pre-Registration yet or even a listing for PB. If you have a link or the correct name to search on Practiscore, please let me know. I have been at it a few years and about 25 matches. Open C currently.

    How do you join a USPSA Match, coming up this Oct 14th at Paul Bunyan? I live just south about 2hrs and a USPSA Member. Never have been at the Paul Bunyan USPSA Matches yet, but would like to know whats involved. Not being a member do I just drive up, pay the admission ($20) get squaded and off I go? Anything I should know or be aware of as a first time shooter at this range? Just want to make sure I have all my ducks in the pond, and not get sent home, cuz I was not aware of a certain rule. Thanks.

    Invisible Men Stage 1

    Well, lets see. I think my first idea was to run back and forth and wait until the 2 target swingers were at rest. But they added 1 Paper Metric behind Popper1. I went right, nailed the PP, engaged the 2 swingers then the single metric behind PP. First time through, I had 2A and 2C. Second time around, 2A 1C and 1M. Then left to T1-T3. Door is open out, so it was a pull. I kept my gun high and right, making sure to not get my hand in front of the muzzle. Then first time, it activated the Spinner on the right, but Drop target on the left did not move. Second time through, it was right spinner and left drop. Box A was just 3 metrics over a small wall. It was a good day too, gun ran great and seemed to be hitting what I was aiming at, that's always a good day. Wish all matches were like this, but it can be frustrating when you have a really bad day. I have had those and just don't seem to recover.

    Invisible Men Stage 1

    Finished this stage, twice. Or about 1.5 times. First time all was going great. Except the trap after the door, would not set the moving target on the left. Had to stop and restart. Did ok. Placed 3rd in my division, 15th overall of 55. It was a good day, CM ran flawlessly.
