    If it was your first, no sweat, just do better next time.

    If not your first, no sweat, everybody has bad days.

    Just do better next time :)

    Even though "shooting lousy" disappoints us, I think if it as "I need to get out and shoot more" which is a fun and good thing, isn't it? ;) Keep at it. You will get better.

    One suggestion is to not hang on the barricades so much.
    Move back or out a little. Shooting while touching the barricade is not how you practice, so why do that during a match?
    A little change can make a big difference.

    If you had a great time, then you obviously didn't shoot lousily. Fun is more important than winning.

    Shooting lousy on occassion can be a good thing. It's just a simple reminder that anyone can have a bad day, no matter how much we train.
    It also tells us that no matter how good we are or perceive ourselves to be, there is always room for improvement.

    Don't let it get you down. Take it and use it to your best advantage.:)

    I just shot an IDPA regional match two weeks ago. Believe me, you did better than I did! I finished darn near dead last. I do believe I will improve with some new sites I can see better (eyes are very old) and practice, practice and more practice. At the match there was lots of blood spilled, mine :mad:

    Shooting behind cover, the back of my hand would rest on the splintering wood door / window frames as I shot. To make a long story short, didn't notice it until I had blood all over my shooting vest, shirt and pants. Good thing I carry a first aid kit in my range bag :D

    But I had a hoot anyway. Love shooting and IDPA matches. Have fun & stay safe.

    By-the-way, nice video too!

    There are days when we take for granted
    that every shot would be a bulls-eye. Only
    to find out we hardly hit the darn target at all.
    But then several days off and back at the range
    we could dot i's in all our targets so it seems.
    :rolleyes:
