    One wrong move cost me Big Time!  On stage 5, I missed a close steel and realized my carefully rehearsed plan was ruined. Unable to think fast, I crouched down and shot my 8th shot through the B ring on a paper target and knocked down the popper.  Big mistake!  

    The penalty was 11 seconds. Five for the missed steel (pass throughs don't score), 5 second for the procedural penalty (failure to engage), and one second for the B hit.. If it was an idpa stage, I would have gotten the coveted FTDR (failure to do right = 20 second penalty)!

    I wish I could say "live and learn", but the learning rate seems to be slower of late...

    It sounds like you're hooked Frank!

    ... along with the rest of us.

    I'm looking forward to the BBQ match. It's going to be a hoot!

    "Under the car" target was interesting to say the least. This was my second shoot. I wore shorts this time and got a nasty rug burn on my knee getting down into position (Wah!, Wah!). I didn't do very well shooting my Glock 27 after installing some new sights on it, but I blame it all on "the nut behind the butt", will sort that out at the indoor range-no excuses, it was fun, I hope I skin the other knee next time and shoot a lot straighter.

    Stages posted, ^^

    Now my work is done until the day of the match at which time I will show up, shoot and win stages 1,2,and 3. Then eat tasty BBQ meat, then win the shoot-off, (open or limited? hmm?) relax while my winning raffle numbers are called. Then take home my new Trophy Match and AR-15 upper. It will feel just like the 2012 BBQ match. laughyescheekyyes

    I was surprised by the huge cloud of dirt that was stirred up!  The second "under the car" target was partially obscured by flying dust. A good challenge. Right?

    Hindsight being 20 20 I stayed back just a little thinking that would be the trick. After getting all this down on the ground, nope that was not the trick. I could only see the bottom of the -1 zone. I was 7 points down, four of which were those two targets. But to do it again, I would shoot it strong hand only with my arm past the car (barricade) with my head under the CAR. With all that said it was one of my best stages. Only one that was better was stage 4 ranked 4th. Thank you for building the stage!

    Brian's "under the car" shots intimidated a lot of people, but all I saw were great hits...was it too low or Perfect?  Any opinions?
