Jay from the Tantric Shooting Team Takes on the Classifier
Yesterday I climbed into my car and began the forty-five minute drive to Lower Providence Rod and Gun Club for their monthly USPSA Match. I’ve been out of the loop when it comes to this particular club due to summer family obligations and a hectic schedule. I didn’t know it at the time but I was driving out to the last match of the year for Lower Providence.
Since this was the last match of the year, the Match Director wanted to go out with a proverbial bang. Six courses of fire were setup, four of which were high round count field stages. I believe the largest stage had a round count in excess of forty.
After the abysmal match that I shot last month at Southern Chester, I had my concerns. Last month I struggled with accuracy and my movements were sloppy. In fact, I think that match was the worst one of my 2012 Season. I wanted to redeem myself but I didn’t know if I could. Since that match I hadn’t put in any trigger time.
My focus at Lower Providence would be accuracy. My shooting would slow to a crawl, if that is what it would take, but my accuracy had to improve to give me a confidence boost going into the upcoming Sanctioned IDPA Liberty Match. I had one horrible stage (Stage in the video with the Classic Targets) but otherwise I feel that I did well. I’ll know for sure when the scores are released. Wish me luck.
