Why I'll never shoot a 20 second stage...

... actually, even sub-30 is getting pretty rare!

In order to shoot faster stages, begin by looking down range. Then, I also find that making the lead go in that same direction, greatly helps. 

 

Even at that, I only get out of the low 30s every so often...........:D

Aw cummon guys.  Atz a swell hat.  The kerchief is some swell too.  The braces also gotz a certain cachet.  All those things really do contribute to raw speed.  After all, betcha he's gotten all the way down into the 30s and 40s from the 50s.  Sides, Seamus and I both know how much a way cool hat can help yer times.  You betcha.

I never thought I could shoot in the low twenties until I got tired of getting beat up on by a little girl. I got a lot of advice on how to step it up mixed in with all the laughter!

I too will never be a fast shooter .

More like  a 30 to 40 second  shooter myself  ( Im OK with that )

I lead a fast paced life .

I own a 24/7  Service  company and Im on the road all day every day .

I dont practice at all .

I shoot cowboy to get away from my fast paced life .

And I dont care how long a stage takes me to shoot   .

Enjoy your game your way .

Rooster 

 

PS. Looks like your having a great time !

Worst beatin' I ever got in my life was a skinny little fourteen year old honor student.

Someone slipped her a hand rolled dusted with PCP and she just honestly knocked me north, south, east, west, up to the Texas moon and down to oil ... four of us town cops had to gang her and flatten her with sheer tonnage and ...

... oh wait ...

... that's not the kind of beatin' ...

... sorry about that, I got confoozed ...

Maybe I best remember dear old Dad tryin' to teach me at a tender age that "Hurry up is brother to mess it up" and content myself with my slow times, at least for now ...

... ain't no fourteen year old girls in sight anyway ...

Well, the way I look at it is this:
I bought all my needed guns, (plus some spares and ones for side matches);

I load my ammunition;

I pay my SASS annual membership fee;

I drive to the matches and stay overnight;

I pay my match fee and work the matches doing what I can.

After all that, I want to take my time and enjoy the BANG/CLANG (Where possible)

I want my money's worth on the line!!

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!:rolleyes:

Things that may not help in this photo:

A. White TX star targets over white sand

B. Mixed green and red shotshell, unless you are a pilot

C. Non-aerodynamic hat.

D. Bright scarf and suspenders that may be distractions

E. Having too much fun ( sub -20 shooters rarely smile)
