Brett took 1st CDP, Luis took 1st SSP, and I was 3rd CDP (I was shooting like an old man!, I blame the 200 power factor USGI 230gr BALL and zero training/shooting this gun at all this year! )
I'm very happy my gun ran fine. I installed a C&S trigger pull kit in Feb of this year but I never test fired it.
I shot the match with no penalties, I almost dropped an empty mag with a round still in the chamber but caught myself which costed me at least 1.5 seconds, I felt like I was shooting a little slow 2 of the 3 stages, I shot pretty accurately but low. I always forget to aim slightly high on IDPA targets when at 15yds or so. On the mover stage I got 5 hits in the torso -0 (it req'd only 4 hits). I got nice tight groups on the static targets but about 2" low in that stage. Brett and Luis shot very well, Luis could probably easily classify as SSP Expert maybe even Master if he shot the classifier. Luis is a former Marine who worked at HRP (High Risk Personnel) at Weapons Training Batt. And then at Blackwater as a driving instructor. Brett missed Master by .41 points last month at the IDPA Classifier in SSP at Cavalier.
Pics of the side rifle match. Brett was 2nd in Open, Luis was 8th in LTD, and I was 3rd in Open (damn I could swear I shot that first stage a whole lot faster than 8.73sec, I could have sworn it was under 6sec oh well). I had one miss on paper Brett had two misses and beat me? Strange.
