That's great! Coming in last place still ranks a lot higher in my book than the people that are afraid to try it.
Hmmmm, I dunno yet, I was planning on sighting in the new scope on my AR on sunday so I can shoot the side match with it next month. Might just have to skip out of work early and do that so i can shoot at Milford :lol:aiformula said:Glad she's enjoying it.
You guys shooting Milford this weekend?
As long as weather looks decent, I figure I'll make my outdoor match debut down there sunday.
My wife got DQed but it was not totaly her fault. The guys who designed the stage for the local IDPA shoot did not even remotely consider that a lefty shooter would show up. The stage required tripping a foot activated mover and then engaging some targets from behind barricade using cover. unfortunately the barricade/cover mad it impossible for a lefty to engage the targets without exposing themselves. When my wife transitioned from right side barricade to left side barricade she got tripped by the cables from the trap door activation switch and fell flat in the mud (did I mention it was a cold, muddy, rainy, January day?). She was correctly indexed and her CZ-85 Combat did not go off but she was DQed. We did quit then because she was covered in freezing mud and hypothermia is a strong possibility in this part of the pacific north west. I left because I could not in good conscience let her sit, mud covered and shivering, in the car while I tried to finish the rest of the stages (she fell during our first stage of 7 stage match). She still shoots and has not been discouraged in any way.bobert1 said:She did a GREAT job. It is so easy for a first time shooter at a match to screw up and DQ themselves. Many just get so overwhelmed that they quit part way thru the match.
