    I have the same train of thought. Dont want to compete again people under thirty. I know that there is a training app that is endorsed by the tactical games and put together by a ex navy seal.

    For those that have competed what has your zero been on your rifles? 50/200?

    Use whatever zero you are accustomed to. I personally prefer 50'ish/200 with priority on the 200. The less 'thinking' a person has to do on a stage the better.

    I used a sharpie to write vtac port numbers on my arm. Those numbers made zero sense to me when I returned to the barricade on the third trip.

    A person would think "3rd trip = 3rd set of port numbers" would be pretty simple. However, I just stared at my arm perplexed as to what my past self was trying to tell my current self. Minimize the required brain computations as possible.

    BUIS are required. Verify they are zero'd, don't just match your irons to your dot. Turn your dot off and verify them. They now allow LPV optics but the kicker is that anyone using one is required to have offset irons. Not allowed to remove optic to use irons.

    Welp, 2 months out.

    Been hitting it hard with setbacks here and there. Doesn't look like I'll be hitting my 100 pound jog goal. Been stuck on 70 pounds. I haven't been adding weight until I can non-stop jog 2 miles under 24 minutes at a current weight. I'll push the next 30 days but will go into a holding pattern for the final 30 to try and avoid injury. Last week of this 30 days I will load up 100 pounds and jog at least 1 mile not worrying about the time.

    I rolled my ankle on the world's smallest rock about a month back and it fixed up fast thankfully. Been milking a tendon in my right elbow that has put pull-up motion stuff on hold for 2 weeks. Hopefully it corrects here pretty quick.

    I've been shooting at about 50% of my normal. It dawned on me tonight to do an ammo inventory. I was shocked to see that I'm down to 450 rounds of 9mm and 2k of 5.56 in the range blasting variety. I haven't seen ammo locally since March so I'll switch my pistol work to a .45 and try to do worthwhile stuff with the 5.56. Nobody want's to be the dork shooting 5 different kinds of ammo at a match.

    Anyways, this is more of a self assessment than anything else and I look forward to earning the right to wear the T-shirt that has been hanging in my closet the last 10 months. I applaud the current Action-Figures and will join your guild shortly.

    I too train with 25 lbs of extra weight. Unfortunately it's not the kind of weight that I can take off after I'm done.
