All my hard work finally paid off and I finally got a win, and a bump in classification up to master.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtxZgNxmK3s

This was my 7th sanctioned IDPA match. So far I've finished 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th a couple times in my division. That all changed yesterday. It was a good match, I kept my head in the game (mostly) and my equipment worked great.

Gun: Glock 35 with Dawson Precision sights and a trigger job by Ortiz Custom Guns
Ammo: my own reloads using 180 grain Hornady Action Pistol bullets
Holster and mag pouches: made by arfcommer BigJimmy57
Eyepro: Revision Sawfly
Earpro: Peltor Tactical Sport muffs with Surefire plugs underneath
Concealment vest: Eotac

Did they make you shoot it in tight jeans on your tippy toes or is that just how you roll?

I shot that match back in 2005. Great match, great range, great people.

Good shooting man...looked like fun....

On stage 9 with the table...do you have to do a 1 - 2 - 1 combo? Seems like you could have saved some time just "double tapping" each target.

Yeah, the stage required it. Usually on close targets that are the same distance from you they make you shoot every target once before you shoot them the second time.

Hey bruh, I'll take a thousand of your reloads so I can practice. You shoot .40 right?

Aren't you in the PRK? Do they even let you have bullets there?

Hollowpoints even!!



It's just magazines over 10 rounds and standard magazine releases for our AR's that we can't have.

Yes, your edit does indeed make more sense. I concede that point.

And I've done one little local match, haven't had the money to do anymore. And any opportunities I've had I opted out for a training class, instead of comp shooting. Ammo in my area is flippin expensive, and I don't have the dies to reload .40. Need to rectify that with a quickness so I can start rolling my own.

Good looking race gun! Congrats OP - your hard work practicing has paid off. And, it might just save your life someday too. Thanks for the post.
