I took a day off for some personal stuff and to have one last chance at a practice run before the 25th Annual USPSA Area 2 Championship (and boy, did I need it).
Here’s where a photo of how I did on the Dot Torture Drill should go, but not today.
Why? Because I stunk up the joint, that’s why. I mean i was under 40 points on it, at 5 yards away. This is… bad.
I got better at it as I progressed from dot to dot, so there might be some hope for me yet.
El Presidenté Drills
|CZ75 1||CZ75 2||CZ75 3||Shield 1||Shield 2|
Actually, I did pretty ok on these with the CZ75, and I did the Shield runs with the Crossbreed and my horizontal mag pouch/tactical Blackberry case because there just ain’t a whole lot of choices when it comes to mag pouches for S+W Shield right now.
My scores with the Shield were terrible compared to my USPSA Production CZ75, of course, but when I compare them to what I shot with a Sccy CPX-1 back in April, things get interesting…
|04/06/12||Sccy 1||Sccy 2|
My split times are faster with the Shield than they are with the Sccy, and my draw is about the same. One of the reloads with the Sccy was faster because I can use a regular ol’ mag pouch with the Sccy’s double-stack mags, and the other is the same ’cause I blew the reload on the Sccy practice run. 🙂
I got the Shield because I was worrying about the reliability of the Sccy as a daily carry gun, but it turns out not only is it more reliable, it shoots better, too.
… and that about does it for content for me for this week. Tune in next week for a comprehensive wrap-up of Area 2.
