I can shoot a 1911 better than I thought

This weekend I won the WV Wild Bunch State Championship.

I won the traditional category, and was 2nd place overall.
The winner of the modern category beat me by a big margin.

Over 10 stages here are the final results:
Jesse Earp - Final time 368.44 (raw time 338.44)
Jackson County Killer - Final time 440.03 (raw time 375.03)


Match scores:

Nice!

Do you think your cowboy action shooting experience helped a lot?

I'm much more accurate with a revolver but I'm learning the way of the 1911.

Once you tame it, you'll love it.

Wild bunch is cowboy action shooting, except having 2 revolvers, you have one 1911.
You only load 5 rounds per magazine.

In the traditional class, it has to pretty much a bone stock GI version and you have to shoot it one handed.

In the modern class, you can shoot 2 handed and certain modifications are allowed.

I had a miserable day shooting Saturday.
I made about the funniest mistake I've ever made shooting.
The stage called for a continious Nevada sweep with 10 rounds, along with rifle and shotgun.
I ran through the rifle course of fire, went through the shotgun, ran through the second mag and my Dad (who was timing) said, "Good run".
As I slapped a thrid magazine and blazed away at the targets I was wondering how come he said, "nice run" while I was shooting.
After I finished, I cleared the pistol on the line, and looked at the spotters and everyone's expression. They all had the "WTF?" look, and some were laughing.

One guy said, "Well, at least he hit them all - no misses".
They looked at the shot time and determined that I finished the course in 28.xx seconds.
However, my time was 34.79 seconds plus a 10 second penalty for procedural.

I didn't even stick around to see what the range officers, and score keeper came up with. I walked away laughing my ass off, because for some reason I thought there were 15 pistol shots.

Another procedural was described as follows.
You have 2 target trees with 3 targets each.
It said, "With the first 5 pistol shots engage either tree, any order, each target must be engaged, and no more than a double tap".
Then it said, "Repeat on the second tree with the next 5 shots".

On each tree, there is one target that is smaller but in a different location.
So the first tree I engaged a 2-2-1 sweep, dropped the mag, and engaged the second tree in a 2-1-2 sweep.

I got penalized 10 seconds for not shooting them both the same.
So that was a something not written clear in the stage instructions.
Repeat - does that mean "any order, engage each at least once, and no double taps"
or "Exactly the same way you shot the first".

Apparently the R.O. interpretted it as "same as you did the first tree".

Sunday I rolled in fresh and flat out smoked 4 stages.
I didn't have any misses on Sunday and ran like a machine.
The only issue I had was I forgot to insert a magazine in at the loading table.
When I pulled the pistol, aimed, and [click].
I jacked the slide and saw nothing, bumped the magazine release (habit), and inserted a mag and began shooting. That mistake probably cost 3 to 5 seconds.

The 6 misses is a scoring error. I had one miss, and the rest was penalty for me shooting 5 extra times. Later they said the ruling was to take my raw time, plus a 10 second penalty. I guess they forgot to change the score card. So my time was actually 22 seconds faster than what was posted.

They posted pics on the Kanawha Valley Regulators website.

The first pic is my Dad, the second is me on the right doing a Captain Morgan.

They handed them to me in bags, then said turn to your right and get your picture.

The awards were very nice. Usually just a hat pin, or a medal on a ribbon (to go around your neck. This year it was a concho to go around a scarf (which I never wear.

I would prefer a belt buckle, something I would actually use.
I have a pile of pins, ribbons, and medals hanging on the wall in my gun room.

Nicely done.

I would have to say the empty gun start cost you more than 5 seconds. Probably 6-7.

You are probably right.
The one stage they had me down for 6 misses was the stage I pulled out the extra magazine and shot 5 extra times.
I had one miss on the stage, the other 5 is what they penalized me with initially. Then through the supreme court hearings, they determined the correct thing to do was take my raw time with the 5 extra shots, plus the one miss I had, and add a 10 second procedural penalty.

They never changed the score on the spreadsheet.

I've been wanting shoot some action pistol matches this year.
My friend shoots them and has invited me to a couple.
Every time, I already had plans for that day.

I like learning the new skill sets, more than I enjoy mastering a specific set.

How do you get a 1911 to reliably cycle cowboy action squibs?

I've never used mouse fart loads, and we have knock down targets on our range to discourage mouse farts.

I got a laugh out of your comments to that effect on FB

Could you mod it into a badge of sorts to go on your suspenders..or get some new pistol holsters featuring the concho?

...or make a little belt buckle for your daughter!!

Cool pics. I love shooting all sorts of guns, but I'm just far more accurate with a 1911 than with anything else. There are a lot of great platforms out there, but old John got it right the first time with the 1911.
