Shot my first ICORE match today. It was a blast, but I got spanked...

Recommended Posts

pretty badly :)

 

I started shooting USPSA (we used to call it ip-sic) back in the late 80', but haven't shot much pistol since the mid 90's. I shot an IDPA match on Saturday, and came in 25th out of 47, so I was happy about that.

 

Today with my new revo (627) that my master gunsmith buddy (Grey Lightening) built me, it didn't go as well 

 

On stage 2 I came in 18 out of 29. On stage 3 I came in 19 out of 29. Since it was my first time shooting a revo in a tournament I was happy with those scores. Unfortunately there was also a stage 1 and a stage 4 :)

 

On 1, Easier As You Go, I came in 27th, and on stage 4 there was a Texas Star. It kicked my butt. Again, 27th. But I'm hooked, from now on its revo or no go.

Whoever invented the Texas Star should be tied to one, and tossed in the ocean :)

 

Evidently you haven't come across a Polish plate rack...…...

You hit the first plate on one and the next thought in your head is LOLWTF as it begins to move

I've shot a few polish plate racks.  It really rewards those that can rip it before the counterweights slide off and weeeeee.  That isn't me at this moment...

 

The IRC had 4 texas stars, 3 from behind cover and the 4th in front, but one handed.  Wasn't pretty.

 

Still have nightmares about it so I bought one but still have to get it put together.  However it needs to be shrouded so nobody could possibly get hurt-ever. Yes we have dumb rules up here.  That's a job for next week.

 

Death star

Speed steel is looking pretty safe...

one of the 2 times I've shot a polish plate rack was back with a 6 shot 625, that was a bit exiting with a reload mixed in.

There are a lot of different and fun targets to shoot at in matches. That's one reason that I like to go to different clubs and try targets that I haven't had a chance to try yet. And they all can be shot with a wheelgun, it just might be a bit harder but we came to shoot didn't we?

Shooting ICORE, or IDPA, for a USPSA shooter requires a bit of control on our governor!  It's a lot harder to make up a second than a point.

The issue may be slowing down to get hits vs not.  It can screw up your rhythym.

Kind of like shooting a USPSA COF with only the A box strip available.

I agree with your last statement . . .
