Had another great day at camp Perry, it was a little cold and windy but not bad at all. My buddy Doug and I were on position 5 for the first 10 relays. I shot my 226 on relay 3 and 9 and scored 35 and 39 respectively, I used my carry gun (sig 320) on relay 5 scored 39. Finally on relay 7 I shot my new (to me) Sig 220 and scored a 27.
with the .45 I thought I handled the reloads well but then I got a double feed (fte), even though I practiced malfunction drills a lot, when it actually happened in real life I choked. In all my years of shooting I never had it happen, so once I realized what was happening I tried to drop the mag and it didnt fall, after staring at it for a min. I remembered to pull it out rack the slide and reload. thats when I lost count of how many rounds were left in that mag. after 2 shots I dumped it and grabbed another. while it seemed like forever the whole thing only cost me 4 points, most of the other 9 misses came after that.
I got flustered and it cost me more points than the malfunction did.
All in all it was a great time as usual, 39 is my personal best and Im still chasing that 40. It looked like a good turnout there were quite a few shooters there and more women than I have ever seen at a pop up.
To anyone who is thinking about going to a pop up shoot, I say please just do it you will not regret it!
All the best, Bob.
