Shotmaxx.001

Life has been a bit crazy but I FINALLY had a chance to get to the range to work on hitting some steel and test out the Shotmaxx timer. This is NOT a comprehensive review, just my initial thoughts after updating the firmware (very important), charging and getting into the timer mode. So far, I […]

Julie_Golob_2014_USPSA_A8_2

Due to circumstances beyond my control otherwise known officially as “Life Happens,” I haven’t been shooting anywhere near as much as I had hoped to. There’s been a lot going on and I could have easily stalled my return and let the excuses keep coming. Or, I could charge forward, check the ego at the door and […]

#NRACameronCup Video Part 4: The Mover

Julie_Golob_YouTune_CameronCup_Mover

The Moving Target Event happens to be my favorite in Action Pistol. I love the challenge of keeping the gun moving as I try to punch holes in that 4-inch x-ring. The target trucks along in an opening 60 feet wide. Competitors shoot 2 passes of 6 shots at the 10 and 15 yard lines. […]

#NRACameronCup Part 3: The Plates

Julie_Golob_YouTune_CameronCup_Plates

Plates! The stage that everyone loves to hate in NRA Action Pistol! It’s where you can go from hero to zero, fast! With 8-inch steel targets shot from the 10, 15, 20 and 25 yard lines, the Plate Event definitely poses the most disaster factor. A downed plate is worth 10 points but there is no 8 […]
