Going E-Postal: The Reload Drill

I got my entry submitted to Sailorcurt. I managed to tie Ahab!

If I hadn’t pulled that three, I would have beaten him! But such is life in when shooting. It only takes a little jerk. I noticed I was worse on the initial draw and aim, than on the reload and aim.

So my goal of one day beating Ahab in an e-postal match still remains elusive, but I tied at least! This is the type of shooting I practice most often. Granted I don’t usually do double tap, reload, double tap, but I generally practice rapid, not too carefully aimed fire. I liked this e-Postal, as it actually exposed some flaws I had in my shooting technique when practiced from draw (well, as close to draw as I could do at the range) and reload. I think I might actually add the double tap reload drill to my regular routine.

We’ll see how it goes overall. I’m hoping I scored properly. I’m only used to rough scoring for myself. My general rule for touching the ring is if I can’t see any white between the ring and the bullet mark, it’s touching. I have no idea if that’s the right rule to use though.

    That’s my standard as well. However, this is all in fun and works on the honor system anyway so if someone is going to get bent out of shape over a one point score difference, they probably should be more diligent about taking their meds.

    Just the fact that you brought it up reveals to me that you are sincerely concerned about being fair and reporting an accurate score. That’s good enough for me.

    When I’m scoring, if there is any doubt about how to score a particular shot, I give the benefit of the doubt to the shooter…especially because going from pictures of the targets can lead to skewed perspectives. If you call it a 10 for example, and it is not OBVIOUSLY a mistaken score, I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt.

    I’m going to try to get the results up sometime today but it may not happen until tomorrow.

    Good shooting and thanks for playing.

  2. Very nice shooting! I found that my “After Reload” score was better too. I wonder why that is?

    I can see I need to practice with my carry gun more, though…..

    Thanks! These e-postal matches are a lot of fun, and it’s getting me to the range a lot more. Hopefully I’ll keep improving.
