Inconsistencies

Post by 285wannab on 8/20/2014, 8:56 am

During a season I will have a lot of swings with my scores.  From one week to the next I can drop 15 to 20 points.  And that affects my average quite a bit.  I am not consistence.  I can not blame it on one thing.  Focus, mood, match preasure a lot of things can be a cause. When I'm on the line I feel I do everyhting the same.
Anyone else experience this coming up thought the ranks?  And what did you do to overcome this.
Thanks

15 to 20 points out of a 2700 then your doing as well as anyone that shoots. 15 to 20 out of a 900 and that is very normal. 15 to 20 out of a NMC then welcome to my world. There are so many things/reasons to be down or up from one day to a next that week to week scores mean very little. I keep a log book with all my match scores posted in it. I really only look to see how I did from year to year.

A deviation of 15 points seems pretty typical for Expert and below even on NMCs.

15 points sounds about right.

I'm a high master and I shoot NMC anywhere from a 295+ on good days down as low as a 280 so don't feel bad about a 15 point swing.

15 point swings are fine so long as the average continues to move higher!

This summer for a 900, my range for my 1911 is about ten points and for my .22 less than eight. 
15-20 is not unusual.

Thanks guys
I did not realize that so many had the same swings.  It does get to me and it's to bad it doesn't swing the other way more often.  I'm guess this is not in our control and we should forget the bad scores and focus more on the good scores.

We shouldn't think about scores at all--only process.  Executing each shot in accordance with your process will deliver good scores--but the only way to achieve good scores is by executing each shot in accordance with your process.

Its an invitation to having your thumb drag the slide and change the force needed to cycle the gun. Inconsistency in any form is bad for accuracy.
