first falling steel match

Recommended Posts

So i shoot limited to doing a ton of reloads isn’t a strong suit. Are you guys counting or shooting till the gun is empty and throwing a new mag in and racking the gun?

I count and reload before empty.  Going to slide lock is slower.  Even slower is having no slide lock, hearing the click, reloading and racking.  When in doubt, reload early.  Four mags will get you through any monster stage I've ever seen.  So far the longest stage has been 64 falling steel targets.

+1. When looking over the COF it's not hard to figure which plate you want to reload after engaging... or if unexpected misses occur then options as to where to reload. It's just stage planning. My math sucks, so I lock into the target I want to change at or near engaging it. It's no different than picking reloading points on paper targets on a lengthy field course.

I count.  It took some practice but I got it.  Try counting when other people are shooting and it helps it to become second nature.

I didn’t think about doing that. That’s a great idea!
