    having made it through the Columbia Cascade safety manual and quiz and getting through the live fire orientation, I took the plunge and shot the USPSA match at Dundee on Saturday. Big shoutout to my squad who were very patient and helpful to the noob. I think some of the youngsters there were amused to find a beginner the same age as their parents. I'll definitely be going back. Lots of room for improvement so I have a list of skills to work on.

    Smooth is fast. Work on those non-live fire things, over and over
    - draw
    - reloads
    - more reloads - on the move, while sitting etc

    Practice those football drills: start, stop, change direction - leaning out around cover - etc.

    Shooting practice: accuracy.

    And ask the more experienced shooters, with similar equipment - how they will run the stage and why.

    Above all - Have fun!

    definattley watch the other shooters when they run a stage,to learn what shortcuts are allowed in a particular situation. competition shooting is a hoot no matter what your skill level.
