Yes, I've Been Absent!

Here I am at the Wild Bunch World Championships...where I shot WRETCHEDLY! A couple of times I considered just shooting myself. Odd, since I've had a great season and felt good going into the match...I got my first stage DQ in my whole history fo shooting SASS matches...sigh...

OTOH, the stages were simply BRILLIANT, a masterful challenge drafted by my friends Texas Jack Morales and Pecos Clyde. If you wanted to see an example of textbook good stage design, every stage at the WB Worlds would be good examples. Lots of steel, lots of challenging shots and movement that made you think.

I believe that ever match (heck, every trip to the range) is a wonderful learning experience, and tomorrow when I record the podcast I'm going to talk about what I learned from my execrable performance, what you can learn from my execrable performance and how all that applies to the Real World. 

More tomorrow...

BTW, we'll be filming at Wes Doss' 1 Inch to 100 Yards Warrior Conference in Reno next week...see you there????

You were gone? Hadn't noticed . . . . < G >

So what did you do to merit the DQ?

Uno Mas said...

Waiting for the next stanza of "The Wreck of the '97". Or was it the '11?

But, as a fledgling, and really, really bad WB shooter, I would like to hear what you learned from your bad day.

Buck up, ALF didn't beat you.

And I bet you had fun.

This may be the moment to remind ourselves of the Competition Action Shooters' Credo:

"There are two types of shooters: those who have DQ'd and those who have not DQ'd ... yet!"

Congratulations, Michael. You have just graduated to Stage 2.

Is there a link to the stage layout/descriptions?

Reno? Are you going to attend the Gun Blogger Rendezvous there the weekend after Labor Day, too?

I couldn't find any description of the training available at the Warrior's Conference. Is this info available?

As long as we're talking CAS, I gotta ask:

Why does Tupelo Flash look like an Oompa-Loompa on Cowboys? Is it the camera? The make-up? Everyone else looks normal, but poor Ron looks like Tupelo Snooki. What's up?

The reason I gave up golf. Being surrounded by guys spitting mad, cursing and slamming clubs over their shots really turned me off. IT'S A GAME. Remember that there are guys in the sandbox dying as your playing. Folks in cancer wards breathing their last. Kids getting the crap beat out of them or who are starving. Ya just gotta put things in perspective sometimes. Enjoy it for what it is.

Please don't even think about shooting yourself! Your '97 would probably jam and if it didn't, you'd probably miss anyhow.
