Ah, the first match of the season. This really was my season opener, despite it being the last match I’ll shoot in L10 and probably one of the last times I’m going to shoot my S&W M&P Pro for a while (more on that to come soon) but for now here’s my match footage, with one slight editing error in the first stage. Don’t worry, you didn’t miss anything cool, just me reloading in the mud.
The classifier was CM03-05: Paper Poppers. In the video, it’s stage 5. Shooting L10, my hit factor was 7.728, I had all 50 target points in 6.47 seconds. In L10, that hit factor would be good enough for a 77%, or “A” class rating. What’s interesting is that if I had declared Production, that same run would have been good for 91.65%, or USPSA Master class. Since I shot all the points, it’s one of the few times that a hit factor from L10 would correlate directly to a Production hit factor.
All in all this was a good start to the season. I won L10, didn’t have any no-shoots or mental errors, and I had 2 mikes. I need to work on a lot of stuff, especially my footwork. I’m not shooting soon enough when I hit boxes and positions, but that’s just something I have to practice.
