Shot my first USPSA match yesterday

One of my friends has been inviting me to these matches at his gun club. He told me not to go unless I have one Saturday a month to tie up. He was right. At the last station, I told him that I knew where I was going to be in one month. It was a ton of fun after the nerves went away. It was my first time shooting in about 2 1/2 months and my first match ever and placed 6th overall. I didn't figure that was too bad. It would have been better if I hadn't forgotten one target. (Duh!) Regardless of the score, I had a blast and I'm ready for the next one.

The CZ 75B SA performed perfectly (like always). I have been wanting to do some upgrades on it for a while, but now I really want to. I can see a target trigger, new sights and aluminum grips in the near future.

Hahaha..... How'd you know how many people entered? I'm pretty sure there were 20 entries. Next go around, I plan on doing better since I know what to expect now. I do plan on souping up the CZ quicker than I had planned though.

I entered a couple idpa matches with a 4 inch stainless finish fouble action only revolver and speed loaders. I did okay but I did attract an audience of younger shooters who had never seen a revolver used in matches. I might as well have been using a replica colt 1860 army as far as a couple were concerned. Hey that sounds like cowboy action shooting plains man catagory.
