Southern Chester USPSA: April 2014

Last weekend I had the pleasure of shooting the April 2014 Southern Chester USPSA Match. My attendance came as a bit of a surprise as I didn’t think I’d have a babysitter. Fortunately, it all worked out and not only was I able to attend, I was able to setup a stage of my own design.

The weather was perfect and my day was filled with six stages that were fun and challenging. Aside from a few instances where my squad was waiting on the squad ahead of us, things went very smoothly and there were no major issues with the flow of the match.

Like last month, I sported my new Pivothead Recording Eyewear. I placed some tape over the upper portion of the lenses, in an effort to force my head into an upright position. I was a bit too aggressive with the tape and fought my head position all day long. At times it felt like my head was flopping around and I struggled to see my sights. I’ve since adjusted the tape and hope the next match will be a little more comfortable.

    • Doug,
      The RO that was running me shoots a lot of IDPA and recently took the SO Certification (the commands are per the new IDPA Rulebook). He was filling in for the two NROI Certified RO’s on our squad (one of which shot right before me and the other was 2-3 shooters behind me).

       
  1. Interesting – I’m glad that was somebody’s correct range commands, even if it’s from the wrong sport. :-) I looked the changes up and I’m glad to see IDPA got rid of “range is safe”. I always thought that was kind of a strange wording.

    We’re very fortunate in my local USPSA club that we recently had a class not too far away and were able to get most of the regular shooters certified. I think it’s really healthy to spread the RO and ARO duties around.
