USPSA Single Stack videos

Just thought that it would be nice to have a place to share uspsa shooting the way John M. Browning intended.

Let me know what you think.

Yeah, don't need no stinkin' high capacity.
After going back to a 1911, from a high cap 9mm, my scores actually improved.
Thanks for the videos and examples of good shooting.

you are right you don't need hi cap mags. just wrap your body twice in 8 rounders and don't miss. the most important part is don't miss.

here is one that I hand a bit of fun editing. I would like to know what every one thinks.

If you're asking about including the scoring in the video as the stage progresses, that's definitely neat and cool.
If you're asking for a critique of the stage itself, it would be shoot and reload the gun faster, and check match ammo carefully.
It doesn't matter much for practice, (and can actually help some), but for matches,
Hang ups really mess up things.
Hate it when that happens.
Nice recoveries, though.

Thank for the video editing input. It takes a lot of time to do and I did not know if it was worth doing to future videos.

I recently became a ammo snob and now only shoot factory ammo in matches, and am hoping for no malfunctions.

Excellent lead in, especially the credits.
Very clever.
Now, about all those hang ups.........

I got rid of the full length guide rod and added a mag well, and did some work on the slide stop. Did not have any problems running the gun hard in practice, but Murphy always gets me during a shoot.

It could just be fatigue, or being in a hurry under stress, causing you to slightly break your wrist and grip that causes those occasional stoppages.
Been there, done that.

If you thought that was bad. This will blow your mind.

Nice shooting, when the gun cooperates.
Nice match, too, wish I was there.
Maybe you could find a 12 year old to do the reloading.
Have you inspected the extractor tension?
Might be the culprit.
Think of the valuable gun handling and clearing practice you're getting, though.

I think you need a serious history lesson! JMB passed away in 1926. Jeff Cooper led the formation of IPSC in 1976, 50 years after JMB left the range. Jeff Cooper, a proponent of the .45 ACP in the 1911, and one who had a keen sense of history, may have "intended" the 1911 to be the staple of IPSC. But smart as he was, I would also assume he would have seen the advances since 1976 and not be biased against them, at least in reality. Anyway, obviously JMB could not have had any "intentions" for USPSA.

Also, 1st stage is not legal, and the RO should have stopped you for REF on the turned plate.

USPSA Single Stack videos

Just referring to the single stack division of the uspsa. I have a great understanding of the history, and I know that JMB was long gone before the uspsa came along.

I do believe you are correct, and that JMB would approve of the uspsa.

Is that the same club that was in the other videos?
If so, they put on some very good matches.
But the picture of the stage didn't agree with the actual design much.
Never did understand why stage designs were published in the first place.
They rarely seem to be of any help.
Some of the best matches I've attended didn't even allow a good look at the courses of fire before hand.
I've meant to ask, why the wrist action when changing mags?
1911s generally drop mags ok.
Besides costing some time, it looks painful.

That is a lot to respond to, so here I go.

Yes it is the same club.

The matches progress in difficulty though the year.

This was not the worst representation of the stage design that day.

I agree with the next three.

The wrist action is a training flaw from when I was shooting a glock with cheepo mags. (Lesson learned)

They do drop free, I am the messed up part.

I have got so many comments about this I am going to make it a big time training goal.

Thanks for your input. For me I am going to do some dry fire, and then work on cutting up stage two.

Any tips and drills to break my habit would be great.

Thanks again.

Breaking a bad habit is easy.
Don't do that.
The best method I've found is to drop the mag as the gun comes straight back to high chest, with the muzzle still pointing to the targets.
Then slightly pivot the grip clockwise to expose the mag well.
Then pivot back and push out.
The muzzle never leaves the targets.
If the mag release isn't within easy reach, any number of extended versions are available, along with ambis that can be activated with the trigger finger.
Hope that made sense.

So much for the stage diagram, again.
They must do that just to add to the confusion.
Nice stage, though, anyway.
It's hard to judge the target distances on the video.
How far away were they?

Stage three was just as accurate with the stage diagram, but it was still fun to shoot.

That's a really entertaining stage.
Lots of shooting positions and use of cover, with targets only available from specific places.
My favorite kind.
Those guys put on a really good match.
