Albany Speed Steel 3-24-19

Had another great time at ARPC for Speed Steel. Managed 6th overall. With having to switch to my bro’s PCC-O after mine was having issues, to his lower with my upper and then finally back to my PCC-O (got it fixed), I gladly take that placing...lol

I was stoked that it was something simple with my gun (feedramp was tightened down too much causing it to shift off center and effecting cartridge feeding). Just took me a few stages to get it diagnosed and fixed. A buzzkill nonetheless.
While I was thankful that I had another gun available to me to use, there’s nothing like shooting your own gun that’s been built specificlly to your personal preferences and specifications.
Well, there’s always next month!:)

Also if you were there today, tell me how you did. I know who the fastest PCC-O shooter was but he’s not on the forum.

I was there, that must have been you with the glitches. Congratulations. Haven't checked my iwn score yet.

Beautiful day after fog lifted.
 
Yep, finally got it all dialed in. Still can’t believe I put together a 2 sec. flat run on my last string of the day at bay 1. Not a bad way to end the match and the sun eventually came out! Good times.

Hope to make it back for at least a few more matches. :D

That's a tight run for sure. A few years ago I cracked 1.9 a couple times with my 10/22 and was elated for days. Haven't managed anywhere close since:oops:
 
#3 geezer in a hat...first outing with PPX iron sights. Pretty slow yet nice to see well enough.
Usually I do a good bit more mingling within the squad but with the issue I was having, I was somewhat preoccupied for a good portion of the match. Hope to chat with you proper at the next match.
 
Your 2 flat was awesome!
My day went far better than expected!
It was great squading with you and getting to put a face with a name.

good times!
As I mentioned to your buddy after the match, you guys have an open invitation to join us on squad 4 at TCGC next month...;)

If only your bro would of caught the run on film... 2 flat was cooking for that stage
 
Yep, it's nice to see film of yourself. I always feel slower in real time than on video. I usually just watch Todd and compare times. If are times are similar, I can then say to myself, so that's how fast I look when I shoot. :D

As to my bro though, I'll just offer to clean his PCC and then sabotoge the "zero" on his red-dot.....yea that should do it!:p
 
Well April's match is in the books. It seems like someone is on quite the winning streak.:s0166::rolleyes::p
Had a blast and it was great squadding with everybody again today. It was nice to get through a match without equipment issues and is was also :cool: that I was able to "save the day" with my M&P mags.:D Missed you at the match @NWGlockgal.:( See you next week at MOS! :s0168:

A great day for squad 4, a very fluid group of shooters who can dish it out, take two helping of it and still focus!
Really enjoyed shooting with everyone, so much, I might just go pcco next month! most of squad 4 knows which gun thats gotta be;)

I had a great match yet somehow a couple stages really dragged my score down. PCCO class, 1st time out since last fall. Was that some NWFA crew in the PU leaving at the gate stopping to dump stuff in the blue barrels? :confused:
