My Second IDPA Match of 2019

How sad is it that it took me all the way until the last weekend in September to shoot my second match of the year?  That’s how it goes sometimes.  (See description of my first match of the year here.)  Family illnesses, family vacations, scheduling conflicts with classes I took, etc., all conspired against me […]
