IDPA: Ontelaunee Rod & Gun (20Jan2013)
#1
First match of the 2013 season at Ontelaunee. This has been deemed the "Polar Bear" match as it was 17* out when we started at 8am

Overall, I think I had a pretty decent match but blew some EASY body shots on a target that I decided to take head shots on to save time (minimize movement) and of course, the popper you will see at Stage 6 was certainly not cooperating!

I speak too soon... had a couple of battery issues. But all in all not too bad. I have to review the video though

I like those POV cameras. Thinking of getting Pivotheads when funds allow

At 7:45 when I got there that was the temp reading in the car. Yes it got warmer, as it usually does

This match was interesting. A friend of mine (who I've been trying to get to shoot his first match for 2 years) and I got there around 9:30 and the place was fairly crowded (much larger turnout than I expected).

We got registered and were given the green light on being squadded together. When squads were announced, we wound up in separate groups. I glanced over at my buddies squad and saw BigDawgbeav and thought " Great, if I can get moved to that squad I can shoot with both of those guys". After pleading my case to the Match Director (Dave, my buddy is shooting his first match today and we didn't get squaded together. Is there anything you can do?), he adds me to the squad but pulls BigDawgBeav (Who proceeded to threatened to never comment on one of my videos again Smile )

I started off shooting one hell of a match. I was shooting fast and was down very few points up until the 'Slap your daughter' stage (My 4th of the day). With props being blown over by the wind, over and over again, I lost focus and started dropping points (-10 on the out and back). From there I just stacked on the points.

It was nice meeting BigDawgBeav and IntenseImage.

My buddy had a good time and says he wants to shoot again. His video is all I have done at the moment.

I'm sure if you told my wife to squad you she did, but I wonder if they moved papers by accident. She noted that we need to bring paperclips next time to bundle shooter papers to prevent that.

I think i shot well but dropped stupid points on easy targets. Ill just blame it on the dislocated thumb on my shooting hand that happened minutes before the match! There is always next time.

Hopefully the scores will post today

Nice finally meeting you!

When I was filling out registration forms there was a lot of shuffling around going on. It wouldn't surprise me if we were initially squadded together then one of us was pulled out to even out the squads. Not a big deal, we were taken care of in the end.

What happened after the match? I saw Dave post an update on Facebook that Derek had to go to the ER because a door hit him in the head during tear down?
