New personal record (PR)

Today was the first match of the year and first match with my new stock. Over the past weeks I’ve only been able to get a live fire practice about 3 times, including a match practice the day before.

In the last match before changing the stock I managed to shoot a new PR of 599.2, it gave me some worries that with a new stock I’d have to really learn how to shoot again, and over the 3 practices and some dry fire ones I seemed to have managed to adjust the stock to my liking.

I adjusted the sight cant, I adjusted the trigger position, I adjusted the trigger shoe angle, I adjusted the cheek piece and buttplate, my posture among other things.

All the small adjustments seemed to have made a good impact, as I shoot a new PR today with a score of 604.7, improving my old PR by 5.5 points, which landed me in 4th place overall.

PR-604-7

Slow start, new class.

Season has finally started, and with already three matches down. Missed the first but managed to compete in the other two.

Managed to shoot a “terrible” 584.8 due to my own mistakes and lack of practice. I made the decision not to let that happen again so I decided to try to do more on my technique.

This clearly payed off as I shot a new PR the week before and when I showed up for last practice before the match, shot a single round of 102.3 with an ugly drop on my last shot that landed in 9.4.

I shot a good 599.2 a new personal record which earned me a 6th overall and I managed to advance into first class. Bad news is that the next class is at 615 (MQS).
