Well, it's a new year, guess I should stop procrastinating and just start my range diary. #pewpew past I've been shooting USPSA since February 2014. Before USPSA I had only picked up a gun a little over a year before. I started with shooting at my range's Falling Plate matches and then Steel Challenge. What looked really interesting to me was runnin' and gunnin', but I didn't feel confident enough to shoot on the move. The USPSA safety class was finally held on a different day than Falling Plate (which I couldn't bring myself to skip) so I took the class and shot my first match with my stock Taurus 24/7, one double mag pouch, and my back pockets - and was totally hooked. I shot a classifier match the following month with my husband's XDm 5.25 with PRP trigger. He hasn't shot "his" gun since. I was classified as D. I made C class in July - it would have been from my classifier score that month, but I got a letter in the mail saying my Area 1 score bumped me up. I basically continued to shoot falling plate and fun steel and one USPSA match a month until September of that year. I was rear-ended in a car accident that month, which moved three ribs out of place and gave me bad whiplash. I wasn't able to shoot very much for about five months. I still tried and got some shooting in. Around May 2015, I was feeling a bit stronger, and started shooting more matches. In October I made B class. #pewpew goals Now that I am B class, I would really like to be more disciplined. I haven't practiced up until now; I know that if I just go to matches for fun I will be stuck in B class forever - and I really want to make Master! A friend encouraged me to start a range diary, so my hope is that a journal will help me get into the habit of practicing and being more deliberate in shooting. It will also be encouraging to look back on and see the progress that I made. Another goal is to get in better physical shape and strengthen my back. Keeping track will help me stay on track. And always.... #aimharder!
Hello all! Thanks for taking the time to check out my Training Log! I got my Carry Optics Nationals confirmation email today! Time to create a log to hold myself accountable and hopefully get some feedback from time to time. A quick about me: I'm in my mid-30s, I've spend most of my adult life shooting guns in some capacity or another. I joined USPSA in 2010 after while living in Hawaii, but only shot a few matches before life issues required me to move back to mainland US and forego any hobbies. Fast forward to the end of 2015, life has finally settled and I'm in a place where I need a positive outlet to focus myself and I decided that I want to give the sport a real go. This journal will serve as a place to discuss my training, match performance, and mental management strategies as I progress. 2016 Performance Goals: - Be able to consistently shoot 90% of the available match points - Make B Class - Shoot in a major match 2016 Training Goals: - 3 hours of dry fire per week - 1 live fire session per week - 12,000+ rounds fired I am currently shooting a G34 in Production, Unclassified. I've shot 3 classifiers that are not currently in the database and should make me a middle-C when the numbers are run this month. I have a Carry Optics G34 slide and RMR on order which will be here sometime around the end of April or early May. My RMR'd G19 slide should be here within the next 2 weeks. Over the next couple of days, I will provide a few summary posts of my training and matches to date, and then I will start giving regular updates about my successes, failures, and lessons learned. I greatly appreciate feedback from the benos universe as I progress on my journey. - Alex
