Nice seeing you again. We all have room for improvements thats for sure, but you shot it well for the first time out. You even took care of that pesky binder clip that was talkin smack!

Damn skippy... good part about shooting that was I got to re-shoot and avoided another down 3.

I just have to work on my long range stuff... oh and the close up stuff... and the mid-range as well. LOL! It is pretty hard to get headshots with the sun in your eyes.

You should have shot the BUG match, it was mostly point blank shooting (and I still didnt go DZ on them all!)

All I know is distance and strong/weak handed shooting is in my future

skipped the bug. I was tired and didn't feel the need to further degrade myself.

How many people turned out for the Classifier? I'm hearing there may have been a fair amount of waiting due to shooter turnout?

I was considering shooting this match but I can't really shoot 2 Matches in a Weekend (Southern Chester's last USPSA Match of the season was Saturday)

Lots of people were asking where you were.

I think 72 shooters showed up. Something like 2 short of the March record. Dave was expecting half the amount

Lots of people were asking where I was? Thats odd, I wonder if it had anything to do with the blog post I wrote about my first time shooting there (which was last month)? I know it got a few peoples attention but Dave (Ontelaunee Match Director) thanked me for it at the Liberty Match.

On second thought, you're either pulling my leg or have me mistaken with someone else.... LOL

Ha no there were at least 2 people I heard asking if you were there -- Dave was one of them

EDIT: Just read your blog ... funny as that was my squad. I was one of those who stepped forward (for me, yes so not trip over the chair), but not ran up to and across the targets in which you were referring to. The arguments heard in my bay were slightly different as they focused on "poor stage design" but as the rules clearly read -- stand, draw, engage -- not a single word around moving forward at all. While it clearly doesnt say you cant, it doesnt say to advance either. I think the FTDR could have been a PE on that one. I will admit the shooter in question went into that stage basically saying "Hey yall, watch this" and had made several comments about gaming out stages during the day.

In all fairness I was also one of the ones asking. I asked Brian if he'd see you while we were waiting for stage 2. So that 2 people asking if you were there.
