Match Date: October 24, 2014

Match Summary:

This week’s match was the last match of the year. This was the annual 777 Match, where each stage had 7 shots per string. It is always a blast. The stages are challenging, interesting and fun. When the stages are setup, people will come and paint the targets with a Halloween theme. It’s so much fun.

This match was packed as people were trying to get to the last match of the year. I started on Stage 3 and worked backwards. I was by myself this time as my loving bride was not able to make it. By the time I was done on Stage 1, it was dark being that it is getting dark around here by 7:00pm this time of year.

I did well for the last match and am looking forward to next season. I Promise I will try not to go through withdrawl.

I have 2 more matches to get posted, so some of the matches will be out of order, but since the season is over, that is ok.

Year End Wrapup:

Since this was the last Match of the year, it’s time for the year end wrap up for Steel. Over all I had a much better season then last year. I was much faster and more confident in my shooting. My year averages came down and my longest times were much much shorter then last year. I shot less matches this year because of vacations and spending time with family.

Here are the stats for this year:

  • Total Matches: 14
  • Shortest Time: 47.98
  • Longest Time: 81.58
  • Over all Average: 64.60

Remember that all scores are in seconds for time. I have updated the scores pages for the last matches. I have also created a scores page for 2013 and will post one for nex year. I also have a summary page with all the years on it. Check them out!

This winter I need to work on draw and first shot speed. Making sure I am on target and pressing the trigger not slapping it. I need to work on longer distance shooting. I need to dry fire over the winter more then I did last year.

Over all I had a great year and I am looking forward to an even better season next year.

I Hope you plan on sticking around for a new season.

Match Video:

No Match video this time because my loving bride was not able to come. I am working on a new POV camera system.
