Wild Gene Posted January 24, 2012 Share Posted January 24, 2012 The last match I went to, I ended up 2nd Limited, I was first on two stages, second on three stages, and 7th on one stage. I hit 90-98% of the points for each stage I won or placed 2nd on. I had 100% of the points for the stage I was 7th on. I had zero penalty points for the match. One stage I won (all divisions combined)I shot 1.67 seconds SLOWER than the fastest time (an Open Shooter) but had six more points and zero penalty points, he had 20 penalty points. As a newer USPSA shooter, you need to remember that you are in a sport that is based on a very simple concept, that can have a very complex multiple layered type strategy and results. To progress you have to generally shoot all the required targets first, then hit placement and time (and that order seems to depend on what everyone else does). If you hit all your targets then you can work on speeding up and your hit placement. It boils down to Net Points(total points-penalty points) per stage and time, not just "%A's". It took me a year to get that simple concept through my thick skull, I just hope it is right! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
