Some local dork won a pistol match...

...runnning a box stock, well worn 30 year old CZ-75 up against some people running STI race guns, comped and optic sighted Roland Special plastic fantastics, and the rest.

That local dork was me!  I honestly don’t think it was that I did that well, I think it was everyone else having a REALLY bad day.  

Upside, I am now entered into the end of year competition where I will go up against at the other match winners from the year, and I get a free two day training class from a big name trainer, Jeff Gonzalez.

    Congratulations! Just goes to show, "It ain't the gun, its the shooter!". Even if the competition was having a bad day, the training class will ROCK!

    When I used to trap shoot, there was this old farmer who used to show up wearing bib coveralls and shooting  a well worn '97 Winchester. He usually out shot everyone and really POed the guys that looked like they just stepped off the cover of a Cabela's catalog!

    Congrats and great shootin'!!

    Nice, doesn't matter which way it was, 1st is 1st and everyone else is a looser.  I have gotten slower and slower this year.  Used to finish top 10 or 15 in local Steel Challenge all the time.  I thought I shot well Saturday and finished 24th out of 90.  Other people are getting faster and i'm getting slower, not a good combination.

    Having a good day is always fun, I shot a 91 on the clays range last week, the wind, sun, and bb's all lined up for a change.
    Have fun with the end of the year match!

    I dont know if its shooter or gun, but I have watched more than a couple people with new and old and worn CZ pistols out shoot guys with race guns.  

    Well done.

    Congratulations.  It's gotta be satisfying to know that some dude leaving the joint was probably seething that his $3500 race gun couldn't get the job done against an "inferior" weapon in more competent hands.

    Thanks everyone!  I mostly got involved with this just to have fun.  Now, I’m wanting to win more....

    41Magnut- this is the local range’s “Gunfighter Match”.  New range, and they are ramping up the matches and training:

    4 stages, and running from a ‘dry’ gun.  At the beep, load and engage.
