A few weeks ago I finally did my black badge course, a prerequisite to start competing in IPSC in Canada.

My main reason to do it was to be allowed to practice from the holster at the range, but when we shot a mini match on the last day I was hooked.

Last Friday I shot my first competition, and it was a blast. My main goal was to avoid disqualification, but as the match progressed, I tried actually going fast.

In the end, I ranked 21 out of 38 shooters in my division. Not bad for a first timer. The Canadian champion was also there, he won our division, and my final score was 25% of his.

Monday nights are IPSC practice at our club, so I went yesterday for the first time. Turns out nobody else did, so I had the whole range to myself :D

Really looking forward to the next match, I'll be officially ranked if I complete it without being DQ'd.

Yes it is! I tried it last year and placed dead last haha. Spent a lot of time practicing and got back into it at the end of the summer. Did loads better. Dry fire practice FTW.

Dry fire is great but you really need to have solid fundamentals so you're not practicing the wrong thing. My first match was probably 4yrs ago - I have video of some of the states and I was laughably bad. Two years later I won two state championships. Now I don't have time to shoot matches, sadly.

I've neglected my Shadow 2 since my last match, omitting to clean it. I have actually shot 700 rounds with no cleaning, just a light oiling somewhere in the middle.

Today I remedied the situation, and took the occasion to snap a picture with something better than a potato cam.
