Match Date: October 23, 2015
What a great time for a steel match this week. It was a little warmer then usual, but it was still a lot of fun for the match.
This is the last match over all for the shooting season for me this year. I was able to shoot with my buddy Justin for the match which made it really fun. Being the nice guy that he is, he offered to and let me shoot his Glock 34. That was a blast. It was a fun gun to shoot, accurate and quick. I had so much fun with it.
Since both of us were in a bit of a hurry this night, we tried to move through the stages as quick as we could. Unfortunately, this was the one night where everyone decided to go shoot. It took a little long, but we were still able to get out of there to make our appointments.
We started on Stage 3 just get the hard stuff out of the way. Since I was shooting a new gun, I was a little nervous, but I think I did ok.
We all talk about how we need to use eye protection ALL THE TIME? Good thing I did, sort of, I had a piece of brass from the Glock go up and over my glasses and hit me in the eye and face. I maintained good firearm control, but it scared me a little. And now we all see why we need to wear eye protection all the time.
Otherwise it was pretty uneventful. I had a great time and a fun match shooting a new gun, hanging out with a good friend and just getting to shoot.
I would say this shooting season went out with a bang tonight.
That’s it for this match.
Enjoy the video!
What I did wrong: I pushed too hard with a new gun I knew nothing about. That’s about it.
What I did Right: I surprised both Justin and myself how quickly I was able to pick up the point of impact for his gun, even never having shot it before. I still ran my times, but I was able to get on target pretty quickly.
