Shot the classifier again yesterday, first time ever shooting my CDP gun (Glock 21) in a match. Shot 86.96, so currently SSP and CDP Master, ESP Expert.

SS in SSP, CDP, ESR,and SSR and I barely squeak SS. I'm a long way from expert in any class. Seems like I'm not capible. I have a new pair of glasses on the way, we'll see. My accuracy is pretty good but I lack the speed required. Shooting thru trifocals and I lose the tri focal. New glasses are to the front sight on the right, distance on the left. I'm hoping this will help.

1st Classifier - shot Exp in CDP. Was gunning for Master, but a silly mistake, death jam on one of the strings and some brian fade cost me.
Will get it next time!
Once I get MA in CDP, I will try for MA in ESP and SSP as well. Haven't shot a match yet, just did the NSO and Classifier.
Got the 1911 fever....

I finally made SSP/EX last week at a neighboring club. I shot the Classifier in CDP yesterday at our club after working a 120-hour night shift. I took my time and stayed safe but it was my most accurate to date with 32 points down for the match. I'm also current as ESP/SS. My SSR/SS classification is outdated and have never classified in ESR.

SSP SS only shot 1 match & got bumped.... like one of the first posters said, Im not moving up through classifiers..... to me that means little to nothing... I will move up by winning at each level , will be shooting several sanctioned matches this year (at least 6-8) so I expect to have my Master card by September.....10 months after my first match..... we shall see... :surprise:

First Classifier was in December 2012- Made SSP Sharpshooter, missed Expert by a few seconds.
stayed at that level through the monthly local matches.
Did not get the bump at the FL state match, shot pretty awful.
had another classifier recently and without really caring about the outcome I managed to make Expert.
Do I always shoot like it- No.

Congrats to Erich on the Match bump.
That was my first major match. tons of fun.

Just shot the Comptac TX state match and snagged my 3rd bump to Master, this time in CDP.

 

I've had a good run, getting the bump in each of the last 3 TX state matches (SSP/MA 2011, ESP/MA 2012, CDP/MA 2013).  

 

And now I have no clue what to do next <lol>...

My first year of shooting IDPA with 3 matches under my belt.

  Just shot my first qualifier yesterday, Expert CDP.

 

Those of you who might know me probably wouldn't be surprised. Just an old Masterblaster blowing the dust out of my barrel. My son cant wait to give this a try in fact I think he is going to finish building his own pistol if I don't get it done soon!

  Looking forward to seeing some old friends and making some new ones~!

CDP Master... I can't believe how many people want to get to master fast. Slow down and enjoy the ride. do it at matches. that is the true test IMO. I have friends who made SS or EXP at the classifier and cant get the job done at major matches. Maybe they should have slowed down and enjoyed winning at a lower level first. Just a thought.

Congratulations, very cool.   Bump in classifier then win your class at a state championship, that is sweet!  Great balance.

 

 

I can understand being surprised, shot Carolina Cup, placed in the middle of a huge expert class, took a family vacation to the northwest, came back on the red eye flight, went to the match with no sleep, no expectations, then just squeeked in on the classifier 98.82.  Mixed feelings for me, I was happy to make it because I had the goal of making it by the end of the year, but didn't feel ready.   I guess its the ongoing process of balancing and growing the skills, on one side is the fundamental stand and shoot skills of the classifier and then the other side of match "sense" and experience of big matches.

Made Master in CDP on Saturday. 2nd Classifier I've ever shot, but have been shooting IPSC for a couple of years.

Just missed MA in SSP/ESP shooting my carry gun, a G34. Dropped too many points on string 3... Will get it next time :)

SSP/MA  Last classifier August 2007

ESP/EX   Last classifier June 2012

CDP/EX  Last classifier April 2011

 

SSR / UN (for comparing data purposes I have shot it by myself in practice with a borrowed gun and scored in the high SS to low EX range)

ESR / UN (never attempted)

 

BUG/ EX (lower realm of SSP / EX shooting with a group of friends) One of us actually shot a basement Master score with a G26 lol!!
