    I shot the USPSA training match at Douglas Ridge this past Saturday and boy was it FUN!!! I came in last in production by just a few points, but seeing as how I was shooting a sub-compact where everyone else was shooting full-size, I'm not bummed. My goal was to get action time with my every day carry and I did that. Every shot was center mass with no misses.

    Now, next time a bit faster perhaps.

    the hard part is speeding up and accpeting the misses as part of the learning curve.Spedd will come on its' own,being safe is primary of course.Glad u had a good time.

    HA! I'm specifically going to avoid any deviation from my chosen platform until I can get to 1st place in production class with my sub-compact. At that point... I'll become either a cop, celebrity bodyguard, or international assassin... whatever pays best... that is assuming my wife says it's okay ;-)
