Match Report Infographic – 2012 USPSA Area 1 Championships

S&W Pro Series 9mm 1911's w/ Custom Work by Pete Single

I had a wonderful time competing in the USPSA Area 1 Championships in St. George, UT a couple of weeks ago. Phenomenal facility, excellent officiating and a super fun match!  I had the opportunity to shoot with a great group of squad mates too.  I used new my two-tone Ionbond Smith & Wesson Pro Series 9mm 1911 with custom work by the talented Pete Single with Warren Tactical Sights, Stan Chen mag well, VZ Grips and ASYM 147 gr. ammunition.

Huge congrats to Sara Dunivin on winning the ladies title in the Single Stack Division and to all those who placed in their division, class and special categories. I placed second woman behind Sara in the division and it has been a great motivator to focus more on that front sight!

I usually travel to matches on my own, but I had my family with me for this trip. The highlight of the match for me was when my husband brought my daughter out to the range to watch me shoot for a little bit. It’s the first time she’s seen me “at work” and I shot my best stage with them there. Munchkin hugs at the range… Yeah. It doesn’t get better than that!

Here’s my match breakdown by the numbers!

    First, congratulations!

    So what are you going to do with the first 1911 that Pete Single worked on, the one for which you detailed all his work in the Gun Glam blog? Do you want to sell it? ;) I noticed a few differences in your newer one (it’s two-tone, the new slide stop, the ball cuts, he milled more of the slide). What else did he do?

    I own a Performance Center Doug Koenig 1911 in .38 Super but I’m really interested in a 9mm 1911 and I am fond of Smith and Wessons. Maybe you could put a good word with the Performance Center to make a 9mm PC1911?

    Good luck and have fun at Bianchi!

    Thanks! LOL… My other gun is an official back up :) The new gun has a lot of internal lighting and he even relocated the slide stop catch to make it shoot even flatter. Will definitely put in a good word at PC. Thanks on the well wishes at Bianchi!
