My date with destiny has come and gone, and the mover is now past me, both literally and figuratively. If you’re wondering how I did, here’s my 10 yard mover target:
|From Gun Nuts: The Next Generation|
You’ll need to click it to get the full size, but that target would score at 120 points, with 11 “x’s”. Now, I didn’t do as well on the 15, 20, and 25 yard stages, but I did better than I thought I would, and just good enough to put me within striking distance of my goal of 1500 points.
Tomorrow I have my last event, the falling plates. In theory, the plates are my strongest event. I have the most amount of practice shooting plates, and it’s an environment where I tend to feel somewhat comfortable. My goal for the plates is to shoot a 380 or better – which would mean dropping a maximum of 2 plates per run. So far, the Para has been great – it is superbly accurate, and if I changed to front sight out for something designed for more “precision shooting” and less for run ‘n gun stuff, it would be an excellent gun for this game in Production Division.
The thing that I’ve learned about Bianchi is that accuracy is EVERYTHING. No one cares about how fast you are, because just about everyone can make the time limits here. Shooting IDPA or USPSA isn’t great practice for Bianchi…but shooting Bianchi will make you better at IDPA and USPSA.
