I shot in another USPSA match today. The results for my division are as follows:

I really need to practice more. I’m not shooting at a ‘B’ level like I used to.

This match was all classifiers and the “National Percentage” from these stages are, according to the classifier calculator, probably as follows:

It takes 60% to be in class ‘B’. I had problems with each of the stages which accounts for some it. The best example of this was that I shot a no-shoot target and got a miss on “Both Sides Now #1”. If I had achieved the same time and got the A-zone hit I would have had a 72.9621% percentage. I hit another no-shoot target with a miss in “The Roscoe Rattle” which would have translated into 62.9157% had I been a little more careful.

I had some minor equipment problems too. In “Can You Count” I loaded five rounds into each of my magazines because I can’t count as fast as I can shoot. In both strings the magazine did not lock the slide back. In the first string I was a bit confused and it took a while to reload and rack the slide. It happened in the second string as well but I was better prepared for it and it two seconds less than the equivalent first string. Had the slide locked back like it should have I probably would have had something like a time of about three seconds less. This would have resulted in a percentage of 61.6266%.

But I didn’t shoot like that. I made mistakes and my shooting represents that of a solid ‘C’ shooter (40%->59.9%), not ‘B’.

1. Joe, Joe, Joe … you’ve been shooting IDPA too long!

We know this, because you’re bemoaning the failure of your slide to lock back on an empty magazine.

You’re not required to empty your magazine in USPSA. The LAST thing you want to do is go to slide lock!

In USPSA competition, you’re not penalized for dumping a magazine with ammunition still in it.

It’s a GAME, Folks!

• I’ve only shot one IDPA match and that was about 10 years ago.

For this stage I deliberately loaded my magazines to five rounds each because I can’t count as fast as I can shoot. I do better on this classifier if I just shoot the gun empty on each target. But the magazines didn’t cooperate by locking the slide back to give me the expected clue the gun was empty.
