Match Date: August 12, 2016
I got the chance to shoot yet another Friday Night Steel this evening. I had taken the day off from work and was able to go a little earlier then normal to get there. It was yet another humid night with threats of rain, but at least the rain held off for me to make it through the match.
It was a good match for me, nothing too out of the normal. Well except for the sub 2 second string I had on Stage 1. That is the first sub 2 second string that I have ever had shooting steel. It was a great surprise. I think alot of it has to do with the red dot on the gun. Since I know that where ever the dot is is where the bullet will go and I am getting more confident with the red dot, I am able to move a little faster. As soon as I see the plate under the dot, I pull the trigger and move on. The extra weight also helps with recoil. This little gun is so much fun to shoot now. I have thought about looking into a holster for it, but for now, it’s kind of nice to just carry the gun to the table.
Anyway, other then a couple of jams, I had a great night. I posted a faster score then usual, so that is nice. I think I will stick with Rimfire for a while. At least till I use up all the .22 I have. I would love to look at getting a .22 revolver that I could use for steel. That would be fun and a new challenge for me. I have never shot a revolver in competition and that would be fun to learn a new skill set. Put a little red dot on it, no jams, I would have an incredibly fast time.
Overall, it was a lot of fun and I had a great time shooting the match. I can’t wait till next time. With things going on, it will probably be September before I could go next, but that is ok.
That’s it for this match.
Enjoy the video!
