P320 Rx Match video and a winters full of rust
Shot some match video from the benefit match one of the clubs had for a fellow shooter that was struck with ARDS while attending Shot Show this year. Luckily he ended up in a hospital with a doctor that has seen this before and they were able to save his life.

The match was setup as a fun wildcat USPSA style match to help Robert and his family pay his medical bills. 83 of us braved 25 degree temperatures at the beginning of the match and fortunately the temps climbed to around 40 in the afternoon. The downside to that though is it made the footing a little greasy on Stage 3 because that bay only has grass on it. I really wanted to push it on this stage like some of the others but never felt comfortable with my footing through the walk through.

This was the second match I've shot using the P320 Rx I picked up last fall and had tuned by Robert Burke. The gun ran great and I can't wait to start shooting this gun regularly this summer and in a little warmer temps. After a winter of very little live fire and a little dry fire I was happy with 2nd in CO and 11th overall for the match.

I left Stage 3 in the video but it was thrown out because during the shooters meeting it was announced that the penalty for not flipping the light switch prior to shooting the stage would be a procedural per shot fired and the first two squads followed that and the last two did not and were only applying one procedural. You gained a significant advantage doing this because shooters were starting at the very far left side of the stage saving a little bit of travel time. I will admit that my almost 50 year old body was screaming for oxygen by the end of the stage.

Enjoy

ETA: The steel stage 1 that I left up was malfunctioning and they were counting this as a downed piece of steel just for hitting it.

You on a cold day with a winter full of rust is better than me on my best day. I loved the sound of the poppers on the first stage. Music to my ears, damn I want to go shoot stuff, preferably lots of falling steel.

There are going to be quite a few of us rocking the P320 Rx this season. I know of at least two others that will be running them and the possibilities of a couple others.

Just curious but how did you find the brigness of the site during daytime and in the cold? I ran mine last month and if the sun was behind me in the morning, even on full bright I could barely see it. I swapped in a new battery and it was better the next stage. I'm assuming it was just bad timing and direction but just wanted to ask.

Nice shooting and sweet reloads. Couple times it looked like you brushed the 180 when moving left/reloading but I wasn't there so I assume it was good. Fun stages!

For this match the sun was mostly to my left side so I don't recall having too many issues picking up the dot. I certainly wish the dot was a little bigger than 3 MOA though. The real test will come a week from Saturday. I'll be shooting at a range where the sun is at your back most of the day and there are no trees in the area so if there are bluebird skies it should be a good test for the optic.

I talked with a buddy after the match and he was shooting a Walther Q5 with a Vortex optic and a 6 MOA dot and he said he struggled all day seeing the dot. I just don't remember having that many issues.

This is one thing that I have noticed while video taping matches with the camera on the bill of my cap. It shows a good representation of what you are looking at but not the perspective of where you are at in relation to the 180.

Another reason why I believe NROI will not allow video review of calls during matches.

Very nice shooting. IMHO this set up is going to change a lot of how other manufactures sell their product including price point. Sig killed it with this set up.
