The Bianchi cup was in swing a few miles down the road last week, so I swung in to watch some of the greats shoot, and there happened to be a side shoot going on. 3 Texas stars, five plates per star, and you were only allowed to start with 3 loaded magazines, 6 rounds per mag. So you have a total of 18 rounds to clear 15 plates. It is all shot as one string, you don't get 3 separate times for each star... so the clock is ticking while you move. Some of the cup shooters did it in roughly 13 seconds. Any of you who have shot a Texas star know how foolish they can make you look. Things started off great but I got impressed with myself on the last star and wound up going to damn fast... as I usually do when I start off shooting well. I left two plates on the last star, for a penalty of 5 seconds per plate. I shot for 25 seconds so I wound up with a 'score' of 35 seconds. It was fun for 10 bucks but after watching the Cup again this year, I am convinced that USPSA is the game for me.
