A Nice Surprise. By: SLG


This past weekend was busy for us here at Pistol-Training.com. On Saturday, JAG and I shot the Cameron Cup at the historical Green Valley Rifle and Pistol Club. Sunday, we shot the Show Me Cup at Pioneer Gun Club. JAG had a solid performance and finished strong for the season, despite not having much practice time lately. I came in 3rd in Production Optics at both matches. The nice surprise was that they had bumped me to master class, as I guess my last couple of scores were good enough and I hadn’t realized it.

Anthony Heinauer, of the Army Marksmanship Unit (AMU) took first place in Production Optics, while Joe Neuroth, an ICE Agent, took second place. I have beaten Joe in the past, but he just shot better than me and beat me both days this weekend. Heinauer is of course a professional shooter who specializes in Action Pistol and is pretty untouchable at this time.

So, it took a full season of Action Pistol shooting and about 10 matches, but I made it to master while shooting a stock Glock. No one in the sport shoots a Glock, and for good reason. Since the Glock is my main carry gun though, there really isn’t much choice for me. Now I need to shoot a 1900 or better with it to make High Master. I think that will be fairly difficult, but certainly rewarding. On the other hand, maybe an LTT 92 with an SRO would make more sense…
