    Went to Douglas ridge for three gun. They ended up doing more of a timed practice than competition but I was glad to have a very easy going first time. I placed 10th out of 12 but (yup here come the excuses lol) I had to reshoot a stage due to timer malfunction and shot 40 seconds in penalties that I didn't the first time through :bluelaugh: which would have put me in 8th if the timer didn't mess up(or I didn't mess up the second time around)

    My first pistol section of 3 gun - YouTube

    Here is a video of the stage I had to reshoot due to bad timer. I shot my Glock 26 but will probably try my sig 226 next time

    ARPC does matches, Barons den does indoor pistol and there may be another.
