First IDPA match of the local season this AM.
36 degrees and spitting rain when I arrived. By the time I geared up and closed the hatch on my car it had started to sleet. Fortunately it stopped within a few minutes of start time. We had about an hour of no precip, but partway through my last stage, it started puking snow. Heavy, wet, puking snow.
One of the pics is as we were finishing the morning - before breaking for lunch. The rest are after lunch. I usually stay for the reshoots, but today I needed to go home and dry out and get a hot shower to warm up.
Some of the SO's forgot to replace the plastic on the targets before lunch, and they ended up pretty sad-looking.
I don't have the full scores yet, but out of five stages I didn't drop more than 3 points down on any stage, and one I cleaned completely. Another one I cleaned, but got a procedural for forgetting to load the eleventh round in the pipe. I wasn't loaded to "IDPA max", so minus 3 seconds for me. [doh]
It was a good morning despite the weather, and now I'm stoked for Babes with Bullets this week!
