The weather was perfect for a match, and there were 5 stages. I didn’t shoot one because the port was low and I have too many knee surgeries. I don’t need any more cartilage removed so I passed on it. The RO didn’t shoot it for the same reason. But it was an enjoyable match anyway. There were 2 DQs on “my” squad. One new guy swept himself as he was holstering while on the ground for the “knee” stage. After that the RO had everyone lay their guns on the shooting box and bend down to pick it up and holster while standing.
I shot PCC and led my division even after not shooting the knee stage. I also was lowest scorer in PCC since I was the only PCC shooter . New RO… on one stage I was told to holster it after making it safe. Smiles from me. But he did fine. I’m certainly glad I’m not a RO.
For 2 years my PCC has been giving me fits with malfunctions. This gun (B&T GHM9) should NOT malfunction so I figured it was something I was doing. It was. I made one change early on and that made it better, but I figured maybe the ammo was underpowered. It would run in testing and practice, but for competition it would malfunction once in awhile. I loved the 160 grain loads, but the reject rate was high and of course the malfunctions were terrible. I have no idea when I made the new ammo. Maybe I have a 2nd personality that made them. But the 147 grain loads ran fine today with no malfunctions. It’s really nice not to have malfunctions but the clearance drills were worth practicing. I managed to find 2k of the same bullets (components, not ammo) to make sure I have enough until my cast bullets get worked out and in stock. I’ve never cast bullets before.
Anyway, it was an enjoyable match and a fine 1/2 day spent with other shooters.
