I missed bringing home a plague by just shy of seven seconds. I placed 4th in CDP/Sharpshooters. Overall I placed 43rd out of 90. Had 3 penalties, one failure to neutralize, and one hard lesson learned. ALWAYS check your magazines before stepping up to the starting position. I left a stage with partials in my mag carrier and did not swap them out for fresh mags, cost me about 10 seconds.
Overall did pretty well, expect for the stages where I picked up the penalties I was within 2 or 3 seconds of the 1st place CDP Sharpshooter who is a regular at the Ames/Boone IDPA matches. The HK45 ran well and I made some good shots.
NEVER PUT PARTIAL MAGS IN YOUR MAG CARRIER!
