Don't let your head get too big, or it will pop like a balloon. It happened to me this last Saturday when running a match against some really good guys.
Small backstory, my local gun range has been running small(2-3) stage matches for a few months and I've been doing very well, placing 1st or 2nd every match. This last match at Corpus Christi pistol and rifle club I placed 17th out of 24. Part of it was not running the right gun for the match, the right gear for the match but mostly pride and some minor heat exhaustion towards the end I'm sure.
Just a friendly reminder to not take 3 gun too seriously but to have fun first and foremost, which I did after beating myself up.
My biggest lesson learned, have fun, stay safe, and always have humility.
