USPSA – Competition Days 3 & 4

Day 7 – USPSA – Competition Day 3

Las Vegas

Monday, 19 September 2011

Completed 5 stages today … I had a silly miss on the first stage of the day, but other than that we both shot ok.

Shooting on the old style (bigger) targets has actually been a bit harder than we thought … we’ve both shot a lot more C’s and D’s on these targets than normal. (I was getting 2 per stage instead of my usual 1!!). Probably because there is so much shoot area, it’s easy to get excited and just blast a couple of shots in the general direction!

Got back to the hotel for another fab swim in the ultra pool … Will post some photos of this amazing place eventually.

Just one stage and chrono to go tomorrow….

Day 8 – USPSA – Competition Day 4 & Awards

Las Vegas

Tuesday, 20 September 2011

The competition is over (can’t believe we had to go to the range today for just one stage of 14 rounds!!), and results are now final. Dave finished 17th outright, and I finished 9th in the Women’s category. Both one place off the results we were hoping for, but, given the lead up we’ve had it could have been a lot worse, so we shouldn’t complain.

The stages were good fun, the guys in our squad (Squad 31) were really friendly, and overall it has been great practice for the World Shoot in Greece!

As we’d finished at the range by 9.30am this morning, we took a short drive up the road to visit ‘Red Rock Canyon’ – it was absolutely stunning, the photos don’t really do it justice.

Tonight we had the awards ceremony at the match hotel, where Dave was awarded 1st Place International – well done Dave!
