Lower Providence USPSA: Special Classifier Match

Lower Providence USPSA - Classifier Stage - 2012

With Winter almost over, the USPSA Season in Pennsylvania is just a couple of short weeks away. To kick off my season, I’ll be attending the Lower Providence USPSA Special Classifier Match on Saturday, March 2, 2013. The match will consist of 5 USPSA Classifier Stages and 2 Field Courses with an approximate round count of 150.

After shooting a Winter full of IDPA, I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a positive performance. I would hate to begin shooting and suddenly stow a magazine during a reload, or worse yet, run the gun dry and perform a slide-lock reload. Neither instance would be good for my already sliding C Class Percentage.

  1. Just do your run-through on the USPSA stage, and then run your plan. Just being able to do a run-through will help you keep to the USPSA plan.

    A tip on keeping IDPA and USPSA separate – always wear your IDPA vest when you practice IDPA, and never when you practice USPSA. Every little thing helps.

    1. I should be okay. I’m still at a point where a reload with retention or a slide-lock reload feels unnatural. Before performing either one I have to go over it in my mind before starting the stage, so that I don’t revert to USPSA rules and forget.
