Was this a helmet mounted camera or a soft hat/head mount?

I really appreciate the 1/3rd with explanations, then the full speed.

Will be watching for more of these.

Pala, or you can go up and do Running Gun in Norco. Many USPSA matches will have stages like that.

Looks like good shooting by the OP, but some work on the draw, reloads and entry / exit shooting is in order.

Couldn't quite tell on the footwork coming into the boxes (because the camera angle, I guess), but it was certain you were not on target quickly enough entering the boxes, esp box C. Keeping your gun up is great, but it looks like (judging from the shadow when you're running to box C) that you're holding it off to one side...like by your ear or something. Lotta time to be gained here.

As you enter the box, use your natural index to point the gun at the target. Once you are confident your foot will correctly land in the shooting box, your eyes should be directing any small corrections to the indexed position, and when that second foot is off the ground, moving to join the first foot in the shooting box, the shots should begin to break. You were also way too hard on your landing, causing big bobbles in the sights, which cost you time as you waited for them to settle. Use more leg muscles to absorb the shock of running, and settle you down, and therefore the sights, too.

Seemed like you didn't leave box B quickly enough. As you're breaking your last shot, your weight should already be on the foot closer to the side you want to run, you'll lift that foot causing you to fall in that direction, and drive off the other foot, causing you to start running in that direction.

is there a reason your not changing mags between boxes? I ask because I don't know if there is a rule that states you can only change mags in the box.
OH Ya, Nice shooting!

I thought I addressed that in the video...

if I didn't silly me. That was one of the problems I had in this course that would have saved me some time, I SHOULD HAVE topped off the gun while running between boxes, I got too caught up in sprinting from box to box.

That is something that I have been working at on and off. It's one of the weakest points of my "game" that I have is not staging myself for take off. Thanks for reminding me.

What's wrong with my draw?

It's trial and error. I felt that the camera angle was far too low for this video but it's what I had to work with.

The wide angle lens on the go pro is extremely forgiving though.

Cool. I'm still looking to get a Go Pro as a supplementary video camera and have always wondered about how people setup the head mount.

Not so much the speed, but more importantly, you're indexed up and you sit there for a beat or two. I'm assuming it's making small corrections, and for a shot that simple (it's just a steel plate, looks close, not a partial or moving target), losing that time shouldn't be necessary -- you should be gaining time on a gimme of a start like that. Gun should come up, immediate bang and you should be transitioning as the plate goes down, esp since your recoil control seems good.

It might have been a mental issue, or maybe an accidental yanking on the trigger? Too much excitement? Only you know, but when you combine it with the fact that you later missed another plate in that same 'rack' and bobbled the transition onto paper, it looks like you're not calling your shots early in the stage, which is usually a sign that something is off upstairs.

Very nice, how long have you been shooting these stages/courses?

I just finished a action pistol orientation 4/6

First time shooting a stage. We all went at a slow pace to not get DQ'ed.

If you get a go pro, you can download their app on your phone which allows you to see a live preview as well as control your go pro.
