New to USPSA; critiques needed!
Posted 12 December 2012 - 10:35 PM
After realizing I should've been shooting in production due to the equipment I have, I placed 7th out of 22 on my second match (http://uspsa2.org/ma...erallproduction) and 6th out of 28 on my third match (http://uspsa2.org/ma...erallproduction).
Here are some videos of me shooting various stages:
I'm mostly doing it because it's fun, but due to my competitive nature, I want to get much better. That having been said, looking at my overall and stage scores in the links above (look for Randy Chung) as well as the videos, what are the most obvious things that I can improve on? Please be straightforward, you won't hurt my feelings!

Some people take classes, and if I had the time or money, I would take one. Your reloads looked pretty good. You didn't seem to fumble getting your mags in that one stage, and that is where you can tell if someone can reload well or not. Not when it is on the belt, standing still, but rather when it is on a table that you have to pass on the way to another position.
What are your points like at this time? What percentage of available points did you get?

I shoot at Norco as well, hit me up next time you go.
As far as your shooting you are well a head of the rest..
You can hit what you aim at!!
As far as improvement goes its all about the little things..
Keep doing what your doing and you will get faster
There's allot to learn ahead, and lots of new ideas to get used too..
See you at the range!

To answer the questions posed:
- I've only shot USPSA three times, but have been shooting for about 6 years and have some formal training.
- As for percentages of available points, if I'm reading the results correctly: 67.59% for the most recent match and 69.22% for the one before (both percentages within production division only).
carlosa: sounds good, I'll PM you the next time I plan on shooting Norco Running Gun.
Thanks for the feedback so far!

You are definitely off to a good start. Just remember, shoot as fast or as slow as you need to in order to make your hits. Then do EVERYTHING ELSE quickly.

I'm guessing that's hit factor percentage based off the top shooter. If you look at the individual stage results there should be a column for points. Compare that to the maximum available for that stage and you can figure out how many points down you are. Judging by the video I would guess you are shooting almost all A hits.
You look like you are shooting really good, especially for a new shooter. My one critique would be that it looks like you are taking too long to take your shots. Especially the first shot coming into a port. You don't have to have a perfect sight picture, just good enough to get most in the A zone. Try practicing getting the first shot off while you are still moving into the port, and start moving out while you are shooting the last shot.
