    As a member of the newly minted University of Florida Pistol Team, i wanted to share the news of our first match with you all. Over the weekend, we drove 16 hours to compete in the Southeast Championship SPP match. For those of you that dont know, the SPP is a collegiate league that is essentially Steel Challenge. 4 Standardized Stages. We scraped this team together in very little time, and due to scheduling and ammo scarcity, we hadnt gotten alot of practice in before the match, other than a local match used to form the squads. I made the second slot in the first squad. First Squad shot centerfire, and second squad shot rimfire. We ended up getting second place in centerfire, and 3rd place in rimfire, losing all the better spots to Cadet Teams from Texas A&M's Corps of Cadets (who have had far more practice, with their underground range on campus :D ) Anyway, here are some pictures and a video of the team shooting the stage "Go Fast"

    As a new team, we are limited on funding, and are currently desperate for sponsors. If you, or your company, is interested in sponsoring our team with gear (jerseys, timers, ammo, components, glasses, ear pro) or money, we would really appreciate it. Message me for more details

    Im the second shooter in the Lineup

    That's really cool. I wish I had something like that to do in college. I was at UCF and I don't think any such program existed. I shot much more while in school than I do now.

    Are any of you going to compete in the S&W Steel Challenge Nationals next month?

    http://www.ussteelshoot.com/

    Almost everyone takes enough off the prize table to pay for their entry fees. If you take SR20 to I-95, it's about 2 1/2 hours drive. Quite a few 1st time shooters show up every year.

    I watched the video. Isn't it amazing how easy it is to miss big targets at close range when you're in a hurry?

    That looks fun, but i think it may conflict with the SPP nationals at fort benning

    Fun to watch and great to see the enthusiasm and turn-out. After awhile I even figured out that the open-arms gesture isn't part of re-telling a fishing story. ;)

    Will you guys & coaches do a post-match team de-briefing, to identify strengths and weaknesses, and to prepare individualized training routines?
