2014 Season is coming, have any goals?

Post by DavidR on Mon Jan 27, 2014 4:54 pm

Well the 2014 outdoor conventional pistol season will begin soon. Here in Georgia March will be our first match.

Have any goals set you hope to achieve? And what have you done to prepare to meet them?

I myself have two: Make Master and shoot 2600.

So far, I have had my 1911, gone thru and have it running 100%, switched to this gun end of last season and was plagued by alibis.
I have been doing some fine tuning on my reloaders and my loads.
I have been shooting my 22 weekly at a indoor league.
Soon as it warms up some I will be practicing on bringing up my average score on my nemesis the 50 yard target!

My main goal this year is to break 280 with my service pistol.  My best scores last year were 278 and a pair of 277's

My other two goals are to break 2600 and clean a target at Perry.

David have you ever noticed on a 50 foot SF target that if it's not a ten, it's a seven?  lol!

My main 2014 goal is to shoot expert scores with 22, then start shooting the bigger gun in CF and 45.

(And get the 2014 SRGC schedule...)

Minor goal is get to RBGC a few times this season too.

And Fort Benning to watch the rock stars.

Clean a slow fire target.  Shoot 10X on a short line target.  Shoot 2600.  Make Master.

My goal is to stay relaxed and positive, not focus on my scores but on my groups. Concentrate on trigger control and never give up on a shot.

I was able to put my previously stated goals into practice yesterday at the Maine Indoor Sectional.  Shot an 827-28x for third place.  I got off to a shaky start but I maintained a positive attitude.  Positive thoughts = positive results.

My plan is to continue to work through the winter months and shoot  my first 2700 since 1996 this spring!   So long as the bullets, powder, and primers hold out I WILL make it!   Smile
