1-21-2012 ACTS Tucson, AZ

The Tucson ACTS crew continues to ramp up the physical challenges at their matches.  While I still performed OK this month at 5th/41 over all, 2nd/19 in Open I didn’t feel at my best after a week of eating too much and being slothful in Vegas attending the 2012 SHOT Show.  Time to ramp up the exercise back up…

Fellow lefty-shooter Brad placed 1st in Enhanced and 2nd/41 Over All.  He just did the Arizona Tough-Mudder race the weekend before and had been training for that; physical preparedness makes a big difference.  Also note that he’s using an AK-74 with Aimpoint Micro; ACTS is one of the only venues I know of where gun type used has very little if any impact on performance on the stages.

About SinistralRifleman

I've been competing in the action shooting sports since 2002. I believe competition shooting to be an excellent way to build gun handling and marksmanship skills and encourage all gun owners to seek out some form of competition shooting. Anyone can become reasonably good at it if they devote the time and resources to do so. Winning, while nice, need not be your goal; bettering yourself through the pursuit of excellence is something we all can achieve.
