Carry on as is. Enjoy it, have a good time and remember the one person you have to out shoot is yourself. My main objective is to complete the match NOT BEING DQ'ED!
Shooting the best match of your life and being DQ'ed on the last stage means nothing but being DQ'ed. All else goes in the trash. Just my take on it and if you have a bad stage, leave it and move on.
Above all you have to have fun while shooting the match regardless of the level of the match.
In closing its dam addictive ain't it????
