I decided early on that I was going to run the entire stage as it if was dark rather than run the front 6 targets normally and then fumble with a flashlight as I entered the dark room for the last 3 targets.
That part of my plan was fine.
The rest of it was fine too, just not as well-rehearsed as it should have been so when the buzzer went off, the movie in my head was a little different than reality.
This was our first full stage after the warmup drill and I was the last shooter, so I really had no excuse not to have studied foot placement in the walk-through and built a more accurate picture of the plan than I had. That said, I still managed a decent pace and an accurate run, even if I had some minor issues that kept ripping my execution out of my subconscious and forcing me to address them on the fly.
In the end, I finished 17th overall and made no contribution to my points down.
Check out the video below.
- Accuracy was excellent.
- Flashlight method was aces.
- Flashlight reloads were okay.
- Time to first shot from draw with flashlight activation should improve quickly with a little practice.
- Getting my mental game warmed up before the final buzzer is the way forward.
