Occitan Cup 2023
We shot last weekend the Occitan Cup 2023 match in Meauzac, a Handgun and PCC level III match.
16 stages to shoot for about 3000 shots. Eric and the AMTARC team had prepared for us varied and deceptively easy stages. I had not come since the 2016 edition. At least this year the rain was reserved for the pre-match :-) It was quite cool because of the wind in the morning, but we shot most of the time under the sun.
I was on the waiting list for the match, luckily Shield was sponsoring this event so they were able to get me a slot. I shot in squad 25 with 2 other shooters from AST Roissy and the inevitable Breton guys on duty....Patrick and Julien. I shot this match in Production Optics division of course.
Not too bad results.
The season having started very early this year, I had only shot one match in Germany a few weeks ago before this one and I will only shoot the TVR Cup in Lain before the French Championships in May. So not too much training!
I didn't make any big mistakes, except my only Mike on the last stage, a speedshoot where I pass quickly in front of a target thinking that if the second one is there I'll have a lot of luck...I wasn't very lucky :-)
I had no problems with my Shadow 2 Prod Optic Ready with its red dot Shield RMSx and the Eemann Tech preparation kit.
I was quite accurate with nearly 83% of A, 15.5% C 1.35 of D, I need to reduce the number of C's even more and especially move faster, speed up my transitions and more shots on the move.
I finished 8th in Overall at 73% of the winner (Emile Obriot) and 1st in Super Senior category.
A good weekend for the AST Roissy shooters
