Pasadena Texas Shooting Dentist Dr. Nugent:
Dr. Nugent shoot an IDPA match on 8-24-13 at PSC gun range. Shooting IDPA matches is so much fun. You will be shooting from, in, around, and through things you can never normally do at the range. Each event is completely different.
Whats in the Box
Did not go to slide lock. Grabbed my mag like a caveman out of my mag pouch. Need to go fast, dig my thumb on my belt and swipe backwards and get a good grab on the magazine. Index the bullet and get it into the mag well. No more grabbing it like a caveman and jabbing the magazine into the hole.
Got the Steel on my first shot!!!
On the head shot behind the non-threat, I put one shot on the head before the slide lock problem. Once I got going again I put the next round RIGHT on top of the first round.
I’ve had several One on One Training sessions with a Firearms instructor. The only problem is he lives several states over. I included his critiques of the stages.
NOTES from my instructor who watched the video:
Laying down on the picnic table. This stage made you shoot laying down on your side.
Slide lock problem again.
- Trigger yank again (still an improvement over previous).
- If you can prepare your mags from the position you’ll be in at the start buzzer, lay down in the start position and sit up as you would during the stage, and see how you’ll be recovering your mags. It appears that more angle would have made securing the mags easier and quicker. Arrange your kit to facilitate quick, effective access prior to “SHOOTER READY?”.
HANDS ON THE WALL
Again, I grabbed my magazine and inserted it like a caveman. Time to re-learn muscle memory while I work on proper mag loading.
- NICE SHOOTING!!!!!!
Did not go into slide lock again. Tapped the mag, pulled the slide. I saw magazine was empty. Dropped the mag, inserted new mag and the slide lock went forward. Some reason it did not chamber a round. Had to rack it.
- Again, before the stage, rehearse your footwork to minimize unnecessary movement. While others are taping, move along the windows/ports to determine how many steps and where to stop that will put you where you need to be to engage the first target.
- Yanked it again.
