    Think I'll shoot a couple more ACT matches before getting back into sanctioned competition. I wasn't all that pleased with how I shot at the one last fall.

    In single stack it is real easy to remember, everytime you move you reload!!!!!


    For you maybe.:) Some COF's, I'm still trying to figure out how I can maximize the number of targets engaged before reloading. Reloads cost time and if I can get away with not doing one because I engaged targets that a limited shooter wouldn't have from that position, it's a good thing.

    Sometimes you may start out and there is only 3 targets to be engaged in an array and then you turn or move slightly and there is another target maybe 20 yds away that I want to shoot so I don't drop a mag with 2 rounds in it, forcing me to do an extra reload somewhere down the line.

    Man, I just confused myself.

    Taking shots from a longer distance if you have to get closer anyway can be counter productive.

    Sometimes, but very rarely is there an advantage to taking a longer shot when you are going to be going there anyway.
    When I shoot single stack I try to keep my stage plan simple, and sometimes simple maybe be 4 shots in one position and reload going into another position.......
    Could be taking a long shot, but you have to consider how much time it will take to take that long shot compared to reloading on the move.

    One of these days, I'll get all of this. In the mean time, I just do my damnedest to put what Jake tells me into my program.

    I'm listening....I figured if I saved a reload I was saving time. So the formula is :

    Time to make the long shots minus the time it would take you to shoot them closer should be less than the time for another reload.

    I always welcome critique from you guys.

    Coach and Jake:
    Maybe we ought to take this to PM so Burl can't listen in. :)

    OK

    But yeah. If you are moving and reloading it is usually better than taking the time to take the long shot especially if you are able to take that same shot from a closer position.
    If you got 9 in the gun and 5 mags with 8 rounds (total of 49 rounds) it is ok to drop a mag with 5 or 6 rounds in it and reload while moving.
    There is where USPSA is different then IDPA where you want to shoot to slide lock. You want to shoot your array move and reload in to your next array shoot it and reload into your next etc etc etc.
    It may only be 2 shots at a start position, maybe 8 but in single stack what you are trying not to do is be standing and reloading.

    You want to talk about reloading, try shooting a wheelgun. Last time I shot a USPSA match with a revolver, I swear I was reloading before, during, and after the buzzer went off.

    I have some sympathy for revolver shooters. But not a lot becuase they did it to themselves. :) But they usually don't whine about courses of fire. They just shoot them. I don't have any idea why someone could find that fun.:D

    Received 4 more entries today.
    We now have 2 revolver shooters, and there are 4 more production shooters than single stack.
    there are less than 25 slots available for Saturday right now.

    Don't wait around at this rate we will be filled up in the next couple of weeks.

    For anyone thinking that they are not ready to shoot a sanctioned match I would tell you that as long you are safe, understand what USPSA matches are then you should sign up and come have some fun. The only difference between this and a club match is there are a few more stages.......

    Time is an issue and if taking the long shots cost you a mike or maybe just really bad points it can hurt your overall performance as well.

    I think I mentioned to you that there is a distinct possibility that I'll show up at your March match with a snubby. You mean if I do, I'll get no sympathy from you as I frantically try to manage my 58 reloads? :D

    But... it'll surely be fun :) And interesting to see how I do, if I end up going that route.

    I've shot 5 round snubbies in IDPA matches. But not in a 32 rd field course. Should be fun to watch. You can carry on a conversation with the RO while you're reloading. :)
