  1. We just finished up the 3 gun season at our range in Minot, ND. It was a great year with lots of good times. This was our first year as a 3 gun nation affiliated club. We host a match every month on the 4th sunday of the month. Most months we ran at least one classifier and most everyone enjoyed the new style and the ability to be nationally ranked and see how they compare to more than just our club. Along with the 3 gun nation classifiers we still hold around 3 outlaw stages so we have at least 4 stages a month. Something else that we tried this year was a two man team 3 gun match, we had 13 teams of 2 shoot and everyone said they really enjoyed the new format. With such a great response for the team event we will be running another one next year possibly a little earlier in the year to take advantage of better weather. We had 4 different prop guns throughout the year from Automatic sub machine guns, to revolvers, to precision bolt rifles. Everyone enjoyed trying new guns that they may not have had a chance to ever shoot. This year we had a decent return of our regular shooter, but the big surprise was how many new shooters we got every month. I hope we continue to see as many people show up as possible because we love having everyone out. We will be taking November and December off for the holidays, but we will be starting our indoor 2 gun matches in January on the 28th. our 2 gun matches consist of 3-4 stages where you use your normal 3 gun pistol, and for your rifle any rimfire or pistol caliber carbine. If anyone is interested in getting out to try either one of our multi gun matches let me know or message us on our club facebook page and we can usually get you in touch with someone who would love to help get you out there. I have yet to meet someone who doesn't have fun if they are just willing to get out and try the sport. https://www.facebook.com/MinotRifleAndPistol

  5. TLDR~WGaS notes; My NEW general shooting Diary and Shot Mile High Showdown Funny how things go full circle. So I've been going back and forth for the past month about deciding if I wanted to restart a online Diary, this really came about when I finally renewed my USPSA membership. I've been real bad about keeping written accountability about my shooting for the past several years, but after RM3G last year (2nd year in a roll where I messed up my match) I decided enough was enough, I needed to keep some sort of accountability of how I'm shooting. That was also the tipping point of me starting in a new division in 3gun and going with it, and luckily finding great success in not only my ability to shoot this new division better then I have then any other division I took seriously, but also learning new things about myself as a shooter. The more serious I do take this the more I realize how much I've been slacking too. This was apparent after SM3G when it came to my pistol handling, I've been so use to "3gun" pistol target presentations of open paper targets at 10-15 yards shoot fast and hope you either got 1A/B or at least 2 hits it never really dawn on me how much my fundamental pistol skills deteriorated. The tight shots of partials wrapped around No-shoots at SM3G made me very timed and wasn't able to shoot what I thought was my potential. But the more I thought about it, the more I realize what I thought my full potential wasn't even close of where it should be and I've been mistakenly confusing it as 'Just good enough' pistol shooting. Looking back on a older thread here on the forum I debated if I should just post on my old thread that I created in Diaries section, but after a brief pause, I feel it is better to allow it to fade out and start a new. One of the things the things I really tried to push hard in the past thread was to make master from C class in production, that goal never did happen, I wasn't terribly crushed when I didn't do it at the time either as in that year I changed over to Open, and at the end of that year I took 3 Gun Seriously and it took all my attention away from USPSA pistol matches, so much in fact that I let my membership lapse the past 2 years and was completely ok with it. The more I think of it now the more I came to the realization that it was never about "earning" the M on my card but to get a point where I just wanted to be at a Master shooting Mentality. So I decided to go head first renew my membership and get back into the USPSA pistol scene, 3gun/multigun will always be my main discipline and thus take most of my time but I feel and know the stuff I learn from shooting USPSA translate very well into the 3gun seen. (ie mental preparedness, and stage break down, etc etc.) As much I want to jump back in Open I realize since now I'm shooting a iron sight class, shooting a reddot isn't going to help me out in the short run. and reality is I want to get back into production and just be Baller status, so as of now I'll be receiving my new Production pistol in several months, but I needed to shoot something till then, so I looked into the gun room and dusted my 6y/o 40 edge, since it was closer to my 9mm STI I use for 3gun, and go shoot limited for a while. I'd probably would have stayed in limited if it wasn't for the issue... Recoil ! Anyways we had a Level 2 match come up and I was able to get with Cha-lee too see if I could get on the waiting list as my membership was pending to get turn on active, while waiting I started constructive Dry-firing to improve on skills I felt I was lacking (like lack of finding a front sight). in case I would be able to shoot the match I didn't want to be to unprepared, luckily I was able to get in and was able to shoot this match. ------------------- So this past weekend I shot the Mile High Showdown. When I signed up for this match I only had one goal in mind, to find out where the hell I am at with my shooting. I dusted off my .40 Edge two weeks prior and shot one local match and 2 Night matches to see what rust I need to knock off and what I needed to focus on dry-fire before the match. The first night match was needed just to see if the gun would run correctly with Factory ammo, since i didn't have my .40 dies setup on my 550 and to see if they make PF, (WWB came out to be a little over 175PF in my gun, little spicy) Everything went well and the grouping with WWB was surprisingly tight at 25 yards, so that's when I realized not to mess with it and just go with WWB till after the Mile High. (This kind of made shooting this match a bit expensive ) knowing that I wasn't going to use any of this ammo for live fire practice, I put a large emphasis on dry-fire. The Weekend Prior I shot the Local USPSA match to kind of gauge who I need to shoot against who I felt was at my level of shooting, which I did based on % of how they finished at the match compared to the winning GM score. Monday night match following was when I put everything together from Dry-fire and where I wanted to push a little to see where I need to refine my skills at. Ended up placing 2nd that night behind Charlie.... like 71% behind Charlie lol. Besides that I did get a lot of intel on what I should work on prior to the match. Day 1 of the Mile High Showdown; I did have the "butterflies" going on as this has been the first big pistol match only I've shot in a few years, and on stage one you could tell it. Stage 1 was a wide open field course where shooting on the move can net you a good HF. I flow through the stage quite well but didn't do as much Shooting on the move as I would like. I opted to shoot the stage from 3 shooting positions instead but keep light on my feet so I can transition to the next spot seamlessly. My focus on my front sight was good on the first shot of every target, but the combination of nerves and the little voice in the back of my head yelling to speed up, made me break with less the optimal follow up shots, but with that being said I never lost sight of the front blade through the whole time, I ended up pulling the trigger on my follow up shot just as the front sight as it got within the rear sight. I believe the first 9 targets I shot at where A/C, with throwing a A/D in the mix, by the time I got to my ending shooting position I was a little more settle down and was able to see what my front sight was doing, which was great as the end part of the stage required a little more focus due to partial no-shoots. I ended up 4th on this stage behind the 3 GM's that where shooting in the Division, which I was quite happy with. Stage 2; Nothing fancy or out of the norm on my part, I did end up having a Jam after the 7th shot which I needed to cycle the gun real quick, that did cause me to completely stop all movement due to how the target where arranged, and I ended up doing a unplanned early reload because of this. My mags being unturned only are reloadable at 17rnds ( I can get a 18+1 start). I ended up reloading one target to early which caused me to slow way down on the steel as I plan to only shoot 16 rounds out of my last mag to finish the stage. I needed to hit the two mini poppers with the first shot or I would had been in trouble. In retrospect I had plenty opportunity to load into a 3rd mag before I reached the window but I didn't plan on it so I never gave myself the opportunity to think that I had it on my belt. Stage 3; Was Front sight bias and had 2 swingers that to me seem turbo'd charged. Even activating them early and shooting them last they were moving pretty good to the point where I even know I couldn't engage them with 2 shots on one passing, So I placed a great amount of energy in my walk through on how I would engage them with one shot per pass. I ended up doing well on the stage finishing 4th. Stage 4; Required a heavy front sight ususage, and was a partial memory stage with 8 targets either at 25 yards or beyond. For me I could best see array of 6 targets from one position with a little bit of hunting and shoot the last 2 targets from another spot in the shooting box. I'm not sure if it was the best way to shoot it but did end up 5th on that stage. Stage 5; was a 32 round stage with one shot per paper target score'd and lots of steel. Issue, you started with gun unloaded and on barrel with all magazines on belt. So that means I was only going to get 17rnds in my first mag, but I planned accordingly, before my first reload I would get at least 16 targets, and finish off the last 18 targets from one shooting position, if I happen to miss any targets I would throw a 3rd reload and engage some of targets a little further back that way I would have extra rounds on my 3rd mag by the time I got to my final shooting position in case I needed them. I thought I had everything worked out, but I didn't plan on murphy. Moving from my first shooting position to my second spot, I got in tight and fast on the stop, problem is when i did that the force dislogged one of the mags from my belt and sent it airborne to the side berm... Great.. Can't miss one shot, got it. I approached the top of the shooting area hit my final position and my only my only reload. From this position I they're 18 targets and I only had 18 rounds (17 in the mag 1 in the chamber) and at least half those targets were steel, as I aimed at my last target I was clean, I pulled the trigger and... click, sadface. I thought to myself I only loaded 16rnds in the mag I need to do a better count next time, I went to unload and show clear and guess what a round popped out, dead primer.... damn. Stage was scored 31 A's 1M 1FTE. This stage also cost me 4th place in the match itself as it was damn close between me and the guy I wanted to race. Stage 6; was a standards stages with weakhand and stronghand shooting with shooting freestyle being the last two strings, only kicker was the targets where spread out enough that you had to move in order to engage them. You could ether try to shoot on the move or get into a good spot and engage as many targets as you can and hit another spot, I did the later. Stage 7; was a repeat of stage 1 minus two steel targets, the difference is you started at the front of the stage, retreating backwards to targets. This stage went well for me and ended up finishing 5th Stage 8; was a repeat from stage 2 starting at the shooting window and the stage cut in half, I shot this stage maybe a little on concretively and didn't do as well as I wanted, thinking of it right now I just didn't shoot it as aggressive as I would like. Day 2: Stage 9; This stage is a mirror copy of stage 3, I basically did the same thing in reverse and shot it well placed 4th. Stage 10; was stage 4 but the memory portion removed a second shooting area put in, creating a mad dash to run up to the 25yard targets for a 8 target 3yard engagement between snow barriers that were considered walls. This where my first legit miss of the match came from. I got to the second shooting box and just went target focus as best as I could and just started to go as fast as I could moving left to right. Some how at 3 yards I yanked a shot . never did call it, never saw a front sight lol. Stage 11; was stage 5, with all steel removed, and loaded pistol start. This was also another stage that having only 17rnd mags sucked, I ended up having to change my plan from others and engaging two paper targets from a longer distance, just so I would have enough rounds to finish with only one reload, it cost me some time but not to much. Stage 12; was stage 6 with the standards removed, it basically 30 rounds as fast as you can with minimal movement with 3 shots per target, I ended up with a 13.5HF but only good enough for a 6th place finish. (Recoil sucks ) All in all the match went well for me and I ended up finishing 5th limited in the match, being just a little over 1.5% behind the shooter I wanted to chase to beat. The 3 GM's in the division shot phenomenal and couldn't be catch by at least 20%. I feel this has re-invigorate me a little to start taking USPSA pistol matches a little more seriously and I cannot wait to get my new production gun here a in a few months. ~EDIT: I'll Correct some grammar errors, when I have time. This took me a minute to type all out...

  9. I am trying to find how they calculate the percentage of one shooters time compared to the fastest time. I am having trouble finding the formula used for this. For example if the fastest time on a given stage is 15.78 seconds and someone shoots it in 23.58 seconds. How to you calculate that in a percentage? From what I understand this is how the 3 gun nation classifiers are calculated, then the last 4 are averaged to get your classification.

It is the shooter's responsibility to ensure that the muzzle of any gun is never pointed in an unsafe direction. You may only handle your gun only at the direction of the range officer (RO), or in the designated "safe areas." You may not handle any ammunition or loaded magazines in the safe areas. Violation of these or any other safety rules shall result in a match disqualification.
