USPSA Winter League 2019

After 2 years of inactivity, I decided to get behind the trigger again for the USPSA winter league, hosted by South East Idaho Practical Shooters, Inc. in Idaho Falls, Idaho. The winter league was held every Friday from December to February with 9 weeks total. I believe I competed in 5 or 6 of these matches. I filmed 3 of them using the GoPro Christy gifted to me for my birthday.

As Cold As Hell

Winter is very cold in Idaho. Many of the matches were held in sub-zero weather and I found that my reaction times suffered because of the frigid temperatures. However, I had a hell of a time. It’s very interesting to learn just how tough it is to shoot accurately and rapidly when you cannot feel your fingers. When you compare my previous indoor matches to these ones, you can clearly see that my reaction times are slower. Nonetheless, I still think I did alright even after taking almost 2 years off from competing.

Here are the 3 videos I made during 3 of the matches I participated in. Don’t judge me if you weren’t there competing.

I am an Internet marketer. I specialize in local search, specifically organic local search. I really enjoy local search because I understand how businesses can leverage social media, traditional and evolving website optimization, and content development in order to rank high in Google Local Search. I currently market dozens of local businesses in the United States using knowledge I have learned over the past 6 years. I am a Google Local Guide, a Google Trusted Tester, and I have written over 800 local reviews in Google Maps. I am also an NRA Certified Firearms Instructor located in eastern Idaho and I specialize in rifle and pistol marksmanship. I can teach you to be proficient in all fundamentals needed to put rounds on target. As a professionally trained and experienced marksmanship and firearms instructor, I can teach you everything you need to know about firearms safety and firearms handling. I am also a Patron life member of the NRA. I enjoy painting using the Bob Ross wet-on-wet technique. I have painted dozens and dozens of oil landscape paintings, many of which are for sale in this website. I will do commission work, if desired. I am very passionate about the 2nd Amendment and hyper-critical of anybody's attempt to infringe upon it. I write in my blog when I can and when I feel that the internet needs to know my take about a particular subject. I am a conservative. I support the US military and I am a U.S. Marine Corps veteran. I served from 1999 to 2003 and trained as a machine gunner, rifle and pistol marksmanship coach, and was a green belt instructor in the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program. My duty stations included Rifle Security Company Windward in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (99-00) and Weapons and Field Training Battalion at Parris Island, SC (00-03). I currently reside in Idaho Falls, ID with my wife, Christy, and our two children, Tallia and Carter.
