CT Midnight 3-Gun!

Good Lord, I'm tired!

Got back to the hotel in Bend at 5 AM; It's now 11 and I'm wide awake. This can't be good! Match Day 1 was pretty spectacular, a frakin' incredible opportunity to shoot weapons systems you normally never get the chance to handle, much less running crazily through the night whacking targets with them. How about a whole stage with a PWS SBR and night vision goggles? 200 yard shots with a new Colt 901 .308 and night vision?  Pretty amazing vision of a match from Iain Harrison and his crew of ne'er-do-wells!

My shooting, you ask reasonably? Wellllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll...not so much. Aside from being so slow I'm being timed with an hour glass, I'm making lotsa mistakes...mostly blowing past targets I should have engaged. In my defense, I will say I've never been at my best at 3 AM! LOL

Gear is working well, and the high-lumen Streamlight protos are definitely helping. I'm going to WD-40 stuff tonight and change batteries on the flame-throwers.

We're filming with night vision, various IR toys and weird lights for SHOOTING GALLERY. Should be mega-cool episode.

Did I mention I'm on the super squad, with Daniel Horner, Kalani Laker, Jesse Tischhauser, etc.? Sigh...

I think I'm going to give up even pretending to rest and go get some food. It'll take me a couple of hours to sort gear...me and pal Alam Samuel's chick magnet minivan looks like and explosion in a gun store.

Oh yeah, my AP Tactical custom holster rig for the Ruger SR9 in fetching zombie florescent green is a big hit...hey, if you can't win, go for style points!

MB - this blog and the DRTV site are both infested with words in your blog converted to hyperlinks to crappy ads. Have Marshal look into this please? I pinged him on DRTV but then I saw it here too.
