The 2012 USPSA Area 1 Championships in St. George, UT featured 12 fun and exciting courses of fire. I was glad to have the chance to shoot this match and it served as a warm up for the USPSA Single Stack Nationals just one week later. I brought the Midland XTC out to the range and on the trip back through Zion National Park to catch some unique video. What an amazing place!
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!
Special thanks to the dedicated range officers and staff for their hard work, to Dave Mathis for his behind the camera work and my incredible sponsors.
