Scores back from my first IDPA match

I was so excited about the match, I never got my scores. They were finally posted. Yep, I don't totally suck! I posted right in the middle of the un-classified shooters.

11John McDermott200.92 (52)28.88(7)32.88(13)42.32(7)42.91(6)26.44(10)27.49(9)

I started on stage 2-6 and went back to stage 1. At stage 2, when I asked how I did, the SO said I needed to relax. I was so hyped up, I was shaking and he could see it. Well, you can see from my scores, it was my worst stage. It was the one where I had a failure to neutralize on the last target. I think stage 5 is where I had the shot on the friendly target.

So, just about where I thought I would be. Looking at the rest of the SSP scores, I would have come 9th in Marksman, and 2nd in Novice. Truthfully though, I'm not really worried about the scores yet. I'm not competing with the other folks, I'm just competing with myself and hope to see solid progression in the future matches. Sure would be nice to find a local classifier shoot so I could figure out where I really belong.

Well, that's it for me. Remember, shoot safe, shoot straight!
