Update: I think I did very well having never shot a match like that before...355 out of a possible 500 with one x.

Thanks again


I feel like a kid getting ready for a date...I have shot some pistol - glock matches and plenty of sporting clays tourny.

any thing that I need to know or think about?

Thanks,

Badredfish

Man, I've been in your shoes. Just relax and have fun. Don't worry about screwing up. And get
ready for all kinds of help. When people realize you are a newby, they usually try and go out of
their way to assist you. Get organized before you go because it can move rather fast. Especially if
you have to move off the line if alot of people are shooting. I tell you, it's addicting.

go to the competitive/accurizing forum and read the post I made that is tacked. Then read everything else.



You seem to have done the most important thing that has to be done. You've STFU and gotten up of your ass.


Let's face it, you are NOT going to do well the first couple times out. It's called a LEARNING period.


Also, do NOT be intimidated by the expensive equipment you will see. Remember that most of these guys have been doing this for YEARS. One old guy in our club has been shooting matces since BEFORE ww2!


You ain't gonna get no nookie or come home wih any cash because I already have the product endorsement contracts and the groupie scene sewn up.

Get over it, go, shoot and HAVE FUN!

Eat chili the night before. Lots of chili.

(Anything to get your competitors to lose concentration, dude...AND IT'S PERFECTLY LEGAL TO BOOT!)

What do mean, I won't be able to shoot like G. David Tubb the first time out.
