Howdy,

Well, I went through Dave Elderton/Midwest Training Group's IDPA classifier 'familiarization' course. I'm sure it helped a great deal, as did all the suggestions from the board.

I found (like most, I imagine) the tac reloads and stage three the toughest. While I had fairly good groups, they were centered but low. I seemed to shoot at the precise center of the target, rather than the 'upper chest' of the -0 ring.

I bobbled the tac reload behind the barricade, and also the one moving to the barrel, and that cost me some time. Tac reloads are definitely on the dry-fire routine.

Anyway, I ended up with a 152.28 in CDP, so I have a lot to work on. Any tips, drills or incantations would be welcomed.


Thanks,
Larry

I've never liked the true tactical reload, because my dexterity isn't that good, and given a real situation with adrenalin flowing I'm sure I would fumble the magazines. I prefer a reload with retention even though it's a little slower

I've found that at the barricade almost everyone shoots low including me. Most of us anticipate the recoil and push the gun down just a little on firing. I have to aim almost at the neck level in order to land the rounds in the 0 area.

Larry,

For your first time out I think you did quite well. Above average for your first classifier IMO. I'll let others, better than I make any recommendations.
