USPSA [ 111 ]

I Miss Rocking Out With My Glock Out  

I Miss Rocking Out With My Glock Out

Innuendo aside (admit it, I made you think of ‘The D’), I really miss competitive shooting. It has been a long summer and I am long overdue for putting some lead down range. Between my wife’s intense schedule, our recent move, and all of the other craziness that life has thrown at us, I haven’t been out to the range since the end of May. I’ve missed so much in such a short time. Thanks to Facebook and YouTube, I’ve [...]

Designing a Fun and Challenging USPSA Stage

Designing a Fun and Challenging USPSA Stage

Practical Shooting is a lot of fun. You get to run around, shooting at targets, while competing to see who can be both fast and accurate. There is a place in the sport for all skill levels and it makes for an enjoyable day on the range. One of the nice things about USPSA is that stages aren’t typically recycled throughout the year (with the exception of classifiers, of course). This means that every match will present shooters with a [...]

Lower Providence USPSA: May 2014  

Lower Providence USPSA: May 2014

A couple of weeks ago I posted video from the May 2014 USPSA Match at Lower Providence. That video overlaid with information from the Max Michel’s Shot Coach App (I’ve also embedded the video below). In that post, I made mention that I had plans for more video once the match results were posted. Match results were posted a couple of weeks ago. I promptly finished up the video and uploaded it to YouTube, however, it completely slipped my mind [...]

Starting My Dry-Fire Routine

Starting My Dry-Fire Routine

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been shooting as much USPSA as my schedule allows. Aside from being rusty from a winter filled with everything but gun handling, it has become abundantly clear that I need to start a dry-fire regiment. Last night I loaded up Ben Stoeger’s Dry-Fire Book (The first one – I haven’t purchased the second one yet) and picked out a drill to get started. I wound up going with Single Target Gun Handling and [...]

Shot Coach: May 2014 Lower Providence USPSA Match  

Shot Coach: May 2014 Lower Providence USPSA Match

Last week I came across Max Michel’s Shot Coach App in the iTunes App Store. I payed the $4.99 and began playing with the app on my iPad. It didn’t take long to get the hang of the app and I was producing videos in no time. Since the Results for the Lower Providence USPSA Match aren’t available yet (the match was only yesterday), I went ahead and produced a video with Max Michel’s Shot Coach App and my Pivothead [...]

Ontelaunee USPSA: April 2014  

Ontelaunee USPSA: April 2014

Last Sunday was the 4th Sunday of the month. The significance of this particular Sunday is that it is the day in which Ontelaunee Rod and Gun Club hosts their monthly USPSA Match. The USPSA Program at Ontelaunee is relatively new (this was their second match of the season) and, despite that, it was another beautifully run match. Shooters were presented with 10 Stages (roughly 230 rounds) that were both fun and challenging. For the money ($25.00 registration plus $5.00 [...]

Southern Chester USPSA: April 2014  

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 [...]

Lower Providence USPSA: April Match Cancelled

Lower Providence USPSA: April Match Cancelled

Yesterday I was killing time on Facebook when I saw a Status Update from Ted Murphy, Match Director at Lower Providence USPSA. Ted had some bad news for area shooters and went on to explain that the April USPSA Match had to be cancelled due to range conditions. I’ve you’ve ever shot at Lower Providence, you are aware of the pistol bay setup. It is basically an area that was scooped out of the ground and layered with stone. Because [...]

Replacing my OEM Glock 17 Barrel with a Lone Wolf

Replacing my OEM Glock 17 Barrel with a Lone Wolf

Earlier this year I was in a bit of a bind. Communication with my USPSA Sponsor broke down and I knew that if I didn’t scramble to find another, I wouldn’t be able to shoot much throughout the season. I reached out to Jerry Cruz, my Stogie Review Partner, and pitched the idea wearing the Stogie Review Logo at matches in exchange for a little help with reloading. Things worked out and I’m in the process of setting myself up [...]
