Scores in for my 2nd IDPA match

Ok, so I don't know how to score things yet. According to the spreadsheet, I placed fifth out of nine unclassified shooters. I would have placed fifth out of seven "marksman" shooters and had fewer points down than all but one of the marksman class. Anyway, here's my score:

Competitor          Total Score      Points Down      Proc.      HNT      FTN      Division      Class
John McDermott    171.17                   34               0             0           1            SSP          UN

Today, I worked on my draw for about an hour. I downloaded a shot timer to my android phone and used it to time my "shots" doing dry-fire. Best good first shot was about 1.76 seconds. That was a shot that I drew, got a good grip with both hands, locked wrists, and target acquisition before I fired. Averages were around 2 seconds. I'm going to try to do at least 100 dry fire draws everyday to work on muscle memory.

Anyway, that's it for me. Hope everyone is having a great day. Remember, shoot safe, shoot straight!
