Journey to USPSA production Nats 2019

Recommended Posts

Alright a new season has started.  I am super stoked for 2019.  2017 was my first non-level one match (Local) where I won production B class at the Indiana Sectional.  In 2018 I shot my second level II match and again got a class win at the Indiana Sectional, but this time in A class. 

 

2018 I shot my first ever match outside Indiana and first match above a level II, the USPSA Factory Gun Nationals (Production).  I was able to walk away with 6th in A class and 53rd overall out of over 240 in production.  I was really excited to see that I can occasionally hang with the big dogs, I even finished 3rd on stage 11 at 96.93% of the stage winner.  Also managed to beat a LOT of Ms and some GMs overall so that was cool for an A class scrub.

 

Follow me as I train and compete throughout 2019 on my way to the 2019 Iron Sight Nationals Nov 3rd-5th.

Registered for locap nats 2019! Thanks to Andrew Heath for the help!

 

2019 is gonna be great.  Weather is starting to turn.  Been able to make it to the range for pistol and rifle work the last couple weeks.  Also got a class coming up with Steve Anderson Apr 12th.

Well finally made it to my first match of the year!

Also managed to earn my very first DQ trip. Link to the video below. Video description has the details of what happened. Keep in mind that there is no such thing as losing just winning and learning. Only way to lose is to not learn something. 

Yesterday I learned a big lesson not to get to big for my britches as my grandpa would say. And the family got a special DQ trip on dad's shooting budget.

Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.

Video explaining the AD or possible AD.  Seems that the guys over on INGO (https://www.ingunowners.com/forums/shooting-sports/465606-journey-2019-uspsa-nationals-5.html#post7894648) think that it was not an DQ offense.  Doesn't really matter to me I had an AD and felt I earned a DQ and the hot fudge sunday after the match :) .

 

Here is the video explaining the AD and how I will prevent it from happening again.

@USPSA_Spiderman no offense, but I’d have stopped & DQd you - and I tend to be a very generous RO.

 

On *first* viewing without any slow motion, it *appears* that you nearly set the gun off into your own foot.

 

In very extensive retrospect, that probably isn’t the case. But the RO doesn’t have that information to go off of, and he made the right call - erring on the side of safety.

 

I’d hope any RO would issue a STOP! command in such a situation. The gun could be malfunctioning (they do occasionally do that, and fire when you do things like take a hammer-fired gun off safe) ... or the shooter made a huge mistake regarding trigger discipline. 

 

That’s my take. :)

I agreed that's why unloaded and showed clear before even being told to stop.
