Practicing to Go e-Postal

One of these days I would like to do one of Mr. Completely‘s e-Postal matches. Tonight I went to the range with the aim of seeing how I’d do. I’m not much of a presicion shooter. I generally practice to be good enough in a self-defense situation, but not too much on slow and deliberate fire.

I tried both my Ruger Mk.II 50th Anniversary edition pistol and my normal carry pistol, the Glock 19. I shot a few targets to warm up, because it’s been several weeks since I had shot. First I tried the Glock 19. This edition of the e-Postal match is Golf. The shooting was from 25 yards feet, weaver stance. My pistols have no optics or modifications. It’s all factory. I have to admit, this was pretty difficult.

You can click on the picture to see a larger version. I’m not even sure if I should count some of those as hits, since it looks like they hit the ring, but I’m not sure. My general concern in more rapid fire is “Yeah, the attacker would be down.” I landed three off the paper in the areas where the paper was close to the edge.

This is with the Ruger Mk.II. I nailed the first three pretty quickly, then I started tensing up. By the end I was getting frustrated and wasn’t hitting anything. I generally can hit the target when I relax. When I tense up, I miss. I think I have to get more practice in with precision pistol shooting. Maybe the next e-Postal match, I’ll make an official entry.

In the mean time, practice.

  1. Dammit, I knew I forgot to do something when I shot this weekend.

    Oh well, there’s always next month.

  2. I’d go ahead and send it in if i was you, you might be surprised how you do. Most all the e-Postal matches are a lot harder than they look!!
