I recently did my first USPSA comp, horrendous results are putting it nicely.
I thought fast was good, ha. When I learned a shot in the "A" area was worth 5 points and a miss was a -10, well, let's just say that my scores were negative for all stages............
Did not have enough "A"s to make-up for the misses, or "good guys" hit.
Next time I will do the course as slow as I need to so I can actually hit ALL the CORRECT targets and forget about the time required. If I am too slow, the guys behind me can play-through like Golf.
I am sooooo glad that I can hit 80+ % in shotgun sports. Handguns just ain't my thing yet.
