Just when you start to get it together

Thankfully this wasn’t a match but running drills yesterday. I managed to whittle 3 full seconds off the drill. And I was sure I was going to best my time again. 

 

Wait.....no wait. I think I need that. 

 

(Sorry for the potty mouth)

I’m a new guy.  I went to my home range to

do some basic stuff ie Bill Drills etc. They had all the stages set up for an IDPA match scheduled for today. I didn’t want to alter any of the stages so I just picked part of stage to run, mostly because I’m an old guy trying to learn to move my carcass.

 

Between the port being intentionally set to

cause hate and discontent, coupled with the small pins at the end, it gave me absolute fits.  To make it worse, I was shooting my backup gun since my x5 Legion is off being massaged.  

 

It was a fun but humbling day.  The more I try to improve the more I realize just how much work it will take to try and learn to be competent in this sport.

Being "competent" in this sport does NOT exist.

 

The 10th best shooter in the world probably wakes up every morning

and says "if only I were 9th best" -

 

At least that's what I do every morning - I just want to beat that old lady

who is the 2nd worst shooter in the world, and work my way up 

slowly (It's been 20 years now).    :) 

 

But, you're way ahead of me - you're, at least, practicing.

 

Pls don't tell me you're also dry firing ....    :eatdrink:

Be careful what you wish for, was stuck forever at 13th in my class, that could practice a couple times a month and pull off a class win if the cards fell in my favor.
Got a Nationals bump, and went from near top in my class to dead last. Just kinda plateaued there.

Great response!

 

Yes, I’m dry firing too. Is this like a sickness?

It was just a drill so I backed up the start position because I’m an old dude that probably hasn’t actually attempted to run in about 30 years. 😂

 

Im trying to get some ankle mobility going.

I have to believe that beard is costing you at least a full second -    😂

Bacon Cheeseburgers and deciding to try and do this in my 50’s is costing me way more time

than the beard! 😂

@SilverBolt  was referring to your “hands relaxed at sides” 😉

 

Or in your case, “hands positioned as if pull-starting an imaginary lawnmower”

 

But there are others out there with far more interesting interpretations on it than you, too:
